If congress approved increased funds for the IRS, wouldn't that send a
message that the IRS behavior has been bad, but is still acceptable enough to
get the increased funding?I would say the IRS budget should be cut,
not increased!Additionally, I have a difficult time believing that
the scrutiny applied to conservative groups by the IRS was not a directive that
came from the White House. It could be very revealing if citizens
gained access to those private email accounts of this administration.It's time to clean house.
In my neighborhood, a number of people work for the IRS. One of my immediate
next door neighbors, who has lived next to us for 33 years, told me, soon after
we moved in, that the IRS has power to take your home, car, bank account, and
you can't sue them without their permission.So I've never
trusted the IRS (nor that neighbor). Many people who work there are honorable.
But, as with any government agency, there are always enough scoundrels and
potential scoundrels to keep me ever leery of any of them.I would
never trust the IRS. I view them as anyone would the German Nazi SS. I try to
keep my "nose clean" in all matters financial.What I
don't trust is the spin the Obama administration has try to put on this
whole scandal, which is really about them. They worked to win by hook or crook.
They did win, and it is apparent it was by crook, IMO.
I was audited once. I had been in graduate school for most of the year with very
little income except the nontaxable GI Bill so my tithing deductions seemed
excessive. Our babysitter fell though so we had to take our four of our little
children (two in diapers) to the IRS office. My wife and I tried to keep our
children under control while sorting through our shoebox of receipts and
explaining things to the agent. The kids looked under the cubicle walls and ran
around and the youngest (an infant) developed a humungous diaper odor. The agent
was trying to be polite. It was obvious to him that we had done nothing out of
line but he had to go through all the questions. I thought: "They asked us
to come. Let them deal with it." I watched in suppressed humor as the sweat
broke out on his forehead. Finally, unable to take it anymore, he closed a
book,looked at us and said we were OK and asked (almost ordered) us to leave. If
there is a next time, I'm going to take as many grandchildren as I can!
No longer trust the IRS?History started 1/20/2009.Right?Exactly.BTW,Americans have NEVER
TRUSTED the IRS.
Who in their right mind trusts this administration?
Obama is mad, and will get to the bottom of this, so it won't ever happen
again. When thugs investigate thugs, nothing will happen. Look at
How's this for a scary thought: The IRS, who are shown to be Obama
political enforcers that target the innocent, are expected to supervise
compliance with Obamacare. Hmmm...what could possibly go wrong?
‘New IRS head says taxpayers no longer trust agency’When
did we ever trust the IRS?
Of course the American people no longer trust the IRS. After becoming the Obama
Administration's thugs and enforcers, used to persecute conservative
Americans, only a fool would have faith in the IRS.
