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.”

Not only is the IRS intrusive, it has too much power. We must limit the scope of the IRS--even better, we could alter it by abolishing the IRS. In addition, we must not fund Obamacare; we should not even amend the affordable health care act--we should repeal it or make it void.

Become the American you profess to be. Stand up for the rights we have in the Constitution and DO YOUR JOB that you were sent to Washington to do. Not only are your voters unhappy; but your vote effects everyone else in this nation and right now you are appearing to support this activity.

Establish a flat tax and eliminate the IRS. This smells all the way up to the commander-in-chief, as does the AP debacle and Benghazi! You simply must stop the infringement on our Constitutional Rights. Heads must roll!
