If you goose-step to the Republican Ministry of Propaganda, Faux Noise, all the wing-nut wonks, and especially Darrell Issa (R-CA), you know that Barack Obama colluded with the government of Kenya, The Socialist, Communist and Nazi parties, the devil, and IRS agents to single out Tea Party groups, a conspiracy to deprive them of their rights. If course, if you goose step in that company, everything else you think you know is just as wrong. Here is the ultimate proof.

Typical - once again the TP (in both senses of the phrase) were crying wolf - yet again! Thanks TC!

tell a big lie guys, so we can hide the fact that we are removing votes rights

One simple fix will end this, a change in the wording that again will indicate that all 501c3 applications must prove they are for charity work only. Any goal beyond charity work should immediately disqualify them and cause a repayment of all back taxes.

We do not get a tax exemption for donations to PAC and Super Pac's why should they have exemptions for money collected or spent?

It's doesn't matter. The GOP agenda is to waste time to ruin everything for President Obabma and those of us who support him.

Darrell Issa is a joke - now EVERYBODY knows it!

I keep getting more ashamed that Issa is from CA. Thankfully even others in the GOP want the outside review of ethics in the House to address what he doesn't and to implode his unfounded witch hunts and voted in 2012 overwhelmingly to continue that funding.

So many minds being destroyed by FOX and their believers. This is the saddest times for america.

I'm with JL....I"m wondering about Issa, myself.

HOWEVER.....I'd like the IRS to investigate all tax-exempt organizations which attempt to influence legislation....such as the MORMON-backed effort to ban same=sex marriage in California!

HOW DARE THEY?

It's flagrant disregard for separation of church/state and they should lose their tax-exempt status NOW!

Just another "keep America upset over BS so they don't realize what we are really doing to their country" ploy. It's just one thing after another ... sigh

No group should be given tax exempt status that does not do charitable work. Right wing, left wing, up or down wing. This would include all "grassroots organizations". Make it a law and make it stick. Fine, jail time and repay all taxes if violated.

Churches of any sort be required to teach religion and no political. This would be ALL religions. No exceptions.

If a majority of Republicans are for anything you can be 100% certain it's a bad idea and 95%+ that it's an outright lie and 5% certain that it's spin to the max.

Darrell Issa is an excellent for postpartum abortion.

Don't trust any republican and vote them out of office in every state at every opportunity.

Wow..my 'ditto' to all of the above comments. ..and a round of applause on top of it for that of Winn Adams. We must start somewhere and where our problems for the majority of them began should be it in my opinion and that's what makes Winn's comment so very important in my opinion.

The tax law has always said "exclusively." It was the IRS which unilaterally changed their guidelines to say "primarily" which started this whole problem, And on whose watch was that?

I still feel the IRS works for us, whether they target conservative, liberal or any group. That practice should not occur. Each application should be treated with the same care and diligence. They were targeted groups. That is truth. For whatever reason they give for it, it should not occur.

I agree that tax exempt status should only be considered for those who truly work for the social well being of Americans. No religious institutions, no political groups, no groups who involve themselves in the elections of anyone.

I do think there is a bigger issue here and it is that this agency has gone rogue with their spending habits. Spending habits that take hard earned tax dollars from those who truly need it. No more unsupervised credit cards, no more bonuses while all others are on hold, no more targeting of anyone. No more videos and super conferences.

That is our money they are spending and it is unforgivable.

Joanne, to answer your question, it was on Eisenhower's watch in 1959.

Until Issa is out of everybody's misery permanently (who wants a rabid dog in the house?), I think I'll probably still think he is trying to boil something up!

Forgot to note at the site, I love your little pun! " Issa bird! Issa plane! SPLAT! Issa Issa! " Just fabulous!

Thanks everyone.

Pam 501(c)(3)s (including churches) may legally influence laws. They may not endorse candidates.

Joanne, that was when IKE was President (1959).

Suzanne, I agree, but to expect that, we need to give them the resources to do the job. 501(c) applications more than doubled, but Republicans slashed their budget.

Lynn, Issa big pile of.... Issa.

TomCat, it seems they do have the resources if spent correctly. Maybe their budget wasn't slashed enough.

This agency is too powerful, hurts many individuals and small businesses who do not stand a chance against it. If a taxpayer were to make an error do you think they show any leniency or do you think they just keep tacking on penalties and interest to a point that you will never escape their grip.

I resent their spending out tax money foolishly, especially in these hard times.

To me this is not a matter of who is sitting in the White House. It is a matter of an agency that is funded and supported by our hard earned dollars, who has pretty much unlimited power, gone rogue.
