The IRS Thinks We’re All Idiots

The government seems to have a data problem. While the NSA has apparently been storing massive amounts of data on innocent Americans deep within its sinister archives, the IRS and the US Census Bureau just can’t seem to keep track of anything. What a difference an acronym makes.

House Passes One-Year Delay of Abusive IRS Rules Changes

Washington, DC- The House passed a one-year delay of the proposed IRS rules changes that would threaten to regulate conservative and libertarian 501(c)(4) non-profit groups out of existence. Sponsored by Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI), the “Stop Targeting of Political Beliefs by the IRS Act H.R. 3865” passed the House with unanimous Republican support and 14 Democrat votes.

Proposed IRS Rules Would Stifle Free Speech

As you may have heard, the IRS has proposed new rules that would severely restrict grassroots advocacy groups. Under current IRS rules, the purpose of tax-exempt 501(c)(4) organizations is educate the public and promote "social welfare" causes, and they can't work primarily as political campaign organizations. Many 501(c)(4) entities are small grassroots organizations ran by local activists that want to participate in the political process.

The Know-Nothing President

Last week, the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Senator Dianne Feinstein, announced that President Obama didn’t know the United States was collecting communications data of allied leaders. In other words, Sen. Feinstein is suggesting that our intelligence agencies do not clue in the President to what sort of intelligence the United States government is gathering. Let that one sink in for a sec.

White House and IRS Pass Around Private Taxpayer Info

A report in The Daily Caller should scare each and every taxpayer. An investigation by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee found that IRS officials Sarah Hall Ingram and Lois Lerner emailed confidential taxpayer information to the White House. This is the IRS that has persecuted Tea Party groups and it appears the illegal interactions between the IRS and White House had to do with challenges to Obamacare by religious organizations.

The Left Was Wrong on IRS Targeting

Mark Twain said “It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.” In the wake of the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups, the left would’ve done well to heed this advice.

The Myth of Angelic Bureaucrats: Human Action without Romance

Another day, another scandal. Since President Obama has taken office, government bureaucracies have taken part in systematic campaigns to silence liberty minded groups. While these partisan shenanigans are outrageous, Noble Prize winner James Buchanan explains they are to be expected.  Dr. Buchanan developed a field of economics built around the idea that bureaucrats are merely human (surprise!). In other words, bureaucrats respond to incentives.
