What cracks me up about this thread is that this report was released with Trump in office, and right-wingers still don't want to trust its findings...

Do you have actual evidence that proves the assessment above wrong?

1) It's the IRS's job to ensure that people applying for that status actually qualify for that status.
That is not "intrusiveness".

2) Asking questions which allege something you can't show is not an argument. If you've got the data to prove the follow-up was not the same, then present it.

IRS admits conservative groups were targeted under Obama Administration

SEE: Jay Sekulow: Victory! IRS admits Tea Party, other conservative groups were targets during Obama era


October 26th, 2017

”It took many years to resolve. But I am delighted to report that we have just obtained a resounding victory in our legal challenge to the IRS’s political targeting of conservative organizations.
In an unprecedented victorious conclusion to our four year-long legal battle against the IRS, the bureaucratic agency has just admitted in federal court that it wrongfully targeted Tea Party and conservative groups during the Obama administration because of their political viewpoints and issued an apology to our clients for doing so. In addition, the IRS is consenting to a court order that would prohibit it from ever engaging in this form of unconstitutional discrimination in the future.”


Also see: Trump DOJ settles lawsuits over Tea Party targeting by Obama IRS

October 26th, 2017

”Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced early Thursday that the Justice Department had entered into settlements with Tea Party groups whose tax-exempt status was significantly delayed by the IRS dating back to 2013, “based solely on their viewpoint or ideology.”

The settlements involve payments to the plaintiffs and an apology from the IRS.”



Why do you always brown nose for Obama?

American citizens are sick and tired of being made into tax-slaves to finance a maternity ward for the poverty stricken populations of other countries who invade America’s borders to give birth.

There is nothing ad hominem about facts. Intrusiveness stepped in when the Tea-Party was targeted for extra-scrutiny. The facts have been provided.

I do actually, you DO know that the IRS settled the lawsuit out of court, right?

A good reason to discuss the Fair Share Balanced Budget Amendment

Do you really believe the IRS is not used by our Washington Swamp Creatures as a political weapon?

The fact is, as long as Congress is permitted to lay and collect taxes calculated from profits, gains, tips, wages and other "incomes", our Washington Swamp Creatures have direct access to and power over every business and individual, and can uses that power to harass and intimidate political foes. And this is why we need to have a national discussion about the merits of adopting the Fair Share Balanced Budget Amendment which would remove this inherently evil form of taxation from Congress' hands.
