    More on FreedomWorks' efforts to hold the IRS accountable - Washington, DC- FreedomWorks is mobilizing its community of over 6 million grassroots activists to stop the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) from implementing and enforcing ObamaCare. In a video to the organization’s membership, FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe delivered the following remarks:

    “Hi, my name is Matt Kibbe, I’m the President of FreedomWorks. You all know what the IRS has done in terms of targeting tea partiers, targeting libertarians, targeting conservatives. You also know that they took our confidential donor information and leaked it to liberal groups, all to stop us in our tracks.”

    “It’s an abuse of power; it’s a demonstration of why big government leads to the arbitrary discretionary power of grey-suited bureaucrats. I think Senator Ted Cruz is right when he says that ultimately, we have to abolish the IRS, and we need to replace the current tax code with a simple flat tax that takes away that discretionary power.”

    “But we also need to understand that right now -as we speak- not only is the IRS not shrinking, it’s growing because President Obama has put these same IRS agents in charge of your health care. That’s what we need to stop right now. Tom Price, Congressman from Georgia has introduced legislation H.R. 2009 that takes the IRS out of the implementation of ObamaCare. That’s what we need to do right now. We need to get Members of Congress to demand a floor vote on that. Please go to IRSTarget.com and register your voice today.”

    FreedomWorks took action early to demand answers, to educate citizens on the evolving scandal timeline, and to provide victims of IRS targeting with a platform to tell their stories at www.IRSTarget.com.

    Twelve grassroots leaders from across the country were flown into Washington to share the intrusive questions and excessive criteria imposed onto their groups by the IRS to reporters at a FreedomWorks press conference.

    Their bravery allowed FreedomWorks to go one step further to connect three activists with key offices in the House to testify against the IRS in a formal committee hearing.  

    FreedomWorks is a grassroots service center to a community of over 6 million activists dedicated to advancing the ideas of individual liberty and constitutionally-limited government.
