Tell Congress: Audit the IRS and Charge Members for their Crimes!

Congress must find the very individuals who authorized the IRS' attacks on free speech, remove them from their posts, and charge them for their criminal activity.

On May 10, IRS officials apologized for targeting conservative, tea party, and other pro-limited government groups and organizations. 

The fact that IRS agents would bully groups with particular ideologies contrary to their own is a gross fact -- what's worse is that senior IRS officials were aware of these acts since 2011 and had done nothing to stop them. In other words, senior officials have been condoning the use of our taxation system as a bludgeon for nearly three years. 

Congress must audit the Internal Revenue Service for these unacceptable crimes. Congress must find the very individuals who authorized these free-speech-based attacks, remove them from their posts, and charge them for their criminal activity. 

Sen. Mike Lee said, "This should not be dismissed as just another conflict between left and right; it is a conflict between the federal government and the American people, who — regardless of their political leanings — should be free to exercise their constitutionally protected rights without fear of political retribution from the world’s most powerful tax-collection agency."

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul introduced a resolution on May 14 to investigate these IRS abuses. 

“The IRS has been using taxing power as a political tool to bully these conservative groups and this type of intimidation is a major violation of our U.S. Constitution,” Sen. Paul said. “This act of discrimination should not be tolerated and I demand a formal investigation seeking criminal charges against any individuals who authorized or were involved in targeting people of the United States based on their political views.”

Just read we have the "freedom" to burn an American Flag, but no freedom to help people in need through Christian organizations??? This is not the America that our forefathers fought for, or are soldiers are fighting for now. Sounds like the IRS and others in control are against America and are doing whatever they can to destroy it.

IRs also needs to stop taking away people's income making them destitute through high penalties, interests and liens. It is evil and greedy practices which goes against the rights of individuals rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Enough is enough. I've had it and am fed up with this government. Is the rule of law now void in the USA? Do the rest of us have to follow the rule of law or can we now run amok? Are we still a civil society or a bananna republic living under a dictator, lawless and with no accountability??

The IRS should be held to the same standards as individual Americans - they would NOT accept the sorry excuses they have given us and we shouldn't accept theirs!

The public trust has been repeatedly violated over the past six years. It is time the administration is held to the same laws that the public is bound by. Institute a simpler fair tax system that negates the degree of corruption made possible by this massive agency. Shrink the government and we will have less abuses.

I absolutely agree, the IRS has got to go. What a budget saver that would be! Also, I would opt for the flat tax where everyone and all entities get taxed the same....how fare is this! Not only would we eliminate a cost center, the IRS, but we would absolutely increase revenue to the Federal Government. The second option, the fare tax, or taxing goods and services instead of income also makes an abundance of sense to me. If you can afford it, you pay tax on it, if you can't afford it, you don't buy it and don't pay tax on it. Again, the Federal Government would increase revenue. For this to work you would have to eliminate the imbedded taxes already in the cost of goods and services. (most people don't know about these taxes). Last but not least, I am not in favor of handing over the collection of taxes from the Federal Government only to create another monster in the states. I also could see some vast inconsistencies developing between state to state as there already is between state to state. The fact still remains the IRS needs to be shut down and abolished. Amend the 16th amendment and put in a simpler tax code....again I opt for the flat tax....very simple.
