Just imagine if a Tea Party member is running your state health exchange and decides to check your voter registration affiliation before putting you on a transplant list.

“Now more than ever, we need to prevent the IRS from having any role in Americans’ health care,” Cornyn, R-Texas, stated.

is it true that the only groups that were actually denied anything due to this increased scrutiny were liberal?

hadn't heard that, a bunch of conservative groups coming out of the wood work to say they were discriminated against tho (and they might have been)

Listening to the hearings is hilarious...

 

If you were to listen to republicans...they can't get Stephen Miller to answer much of anything because of his insistence of making a nuanced response to questions that are being setup to be a Yes or No response. 

 

If you were to listen to democrats...it's because of Citizen's United, lack of clear regulatory guidelines, or something other than partisan targetting.

The IRS asked a pro-life group the 'content of their prayers'

 

 

 

Wut?

Looking like the IRS is not the only one getting in on the action

As far as I'm concerned, NPO's with tax exempt status shouldn't be allowed to have political agenda's at all, if they do then they shouldn't be tax exempt or even in consideration for one. If you name your NPO after a political party or something to do with voting then expect to get hit with audits quite often. Don't call it profiling because you were the one stupid enough to make that mistake

 

 

Now as far as this scandal, which really isn't a scandal. The reason it's not is because this is a known practice of the IRS, it's an effective practice that's been done before. Anyone in politics knows this type of stuff goes on and it didn't bother them till they could get something out of it.  The only thing this does is show the desperation of republicans as they know they are losing the edge in major states. There's nothing to see here as it's just another attempt by republican's to get rid of Obama Care and it will fail just like the other attempts before it did. After all of this falls by the wayside the IRS will be back to it's old tricks under the next president and so forth.

 the problem with your statement is that the same arguement could be made about any profiling.

 

Profiling is either right for everyone or wrong for everyone....we can't pick and chose where it suits our political views.

I'm not saying it's right or wrong, I'm just saying it's not a scandal. If it was a big deal this would have been brought up by the mainstream media before now. If it was a major problem the stunts pulled by the IRS would've been outed to the national media back then. If it wasn't a problem for Republicans then, it isn't now.

 

Which means that this is just another thing that the republican party is doing to try and gain a footing against the Democratic party.  God knows they need all the extra footing they can get nationally as the last two campaigns they've ran have been jokes at best.  I'm not really a member of either party myself, so it doesn't bother me a bunch. I just think it's funny that a practice that's been used by president's in the past.
