DID CONFIDENTIAL TAX INFO WIND UP IN THE WRONG HANDS?

|| By FITSNEWS || Recently our friend Nathan Mehrens of Americans for Limited Government detailed the latest example of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) playing things a bit fast and loose …

Now the IRS (and the U.S. Department of Justice’s tax division) is being sued by another group over its questionable proximity to the administration of U.S. president Barack Obama.

Obama’s IRS was exposed two years ago for its discriminatory persecution of limited government groups (discrimination which continues to this day).  According to the national advocacy group Cause of Action, there could be even more maliciousness afoot – as tax attorneys with access to confidential information have repeatedly been assigned to provide “legal advice” to Obama.

The group attempted to use the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in an effort to make sure government was preventing “confidential tax information (from) being shared with the wrong people,” but received no response.

Now it’s filed a complaint …

“Given the IRS’ track record of failing to protect confidential tax information, this lack of agency oversight is a threat to our privacy and democracy,” the group’s president said. “Ethical and legal protocols at these agencies should be held to the highest standards, especially when government attorneys are accessing confidential taxpayer return information while intermittently leaving to work in the White House.”

Indeed …

We’re grateful for groups like ALG and Cause of Action – both of which are performing vital watchdog roles over our increasingly untrustworthy federal government.

The same old drumbeat from the rightist lunatic fringe. Any bets on how far this suit goes?

Probably as far as the lawsuit that will end Obamacare next month-when SCOTUS rules on the ‘exchanges’. Read it and weep!

All for it. Bet you also love to listen to Fox radio and enjoy all those advertisements that say – “Do you owe back taxes – we can get the IRS to settle for a fraction of what you owe.”

And when Nero raised taxes above one part in eight to feed the masses, the citizenry burned Rome to the ground.

Harry Reid sure taunted Mitt Romney over releasing his tax records, when the Whitehouse was already provided those records by Obama’s IRS.

The “former” head of the IRS was ready to testify to this IRS greed. But Darrel Isis failed to ask the right questions.

It’s Michelle … Oh Bummer.

Point of order. Is not the IRS part of the executive branch of the United States federal government – thus it’s not Obama’s IRS, it’s our IRS? We’re suing ourselves because we pay taxes? Hold on – I’ll be back after I kick my own ass too.

All you ever need to know about taxes…
Flat tax.
The IRS has evolved into a tax-payer funded political hit organization for the left.
Get rid of the IRS.

Let’s call it what it is. Let’s just come right out and say it:
Our Government has become evil. It has become corrupt.
Our Government is now our oppressor–our Government is now our enemy.
The question is:
what are we going to do about it?
