Happy Tax Day: RNC Sues IRS

It is tax day and when IRS collects taxes from all earning Americans. It is the agency and day that are both dreaded by many and rightly so if the IRS happens to deliberately target you. That is what many groups have faced since especially if their political affiliations happened to be conservative! Finally RNC has taken some concrete action; it has sued the IRS for stonewalling information about its nefarious activities over targeting conservative groups since 2010. Finally, RNC has showed some guts in taking this action. IRS by its nature is not supposed to be tool for the Democrat Party; it is designed to be an apolitical agency with the task of collecting taxes on behalf of the government. Unfortunately, IRS has proven itself to be a personal tool of vendetta for the Democrat Party as proved by ongoing investigations into its activities on behalf of the Obama administration.

Katie Pavlich of Townhall reports: The Republican National Committee has submitted a lawsuit against the IRS for failing to comply with Freedom Information Requests related to the targeting of conservative groups. The original request was made on May 21, 2013, nearly one year ago and the IRS has asked for multiple extensions to submit information. At this point, none of the information requested by the RNC has been received by the taxing agency.

The RNC argues the information being requested is in the public interest and that Americans deserve to know why one of the government’s most powerful agencies would purposely target groups based on their values and beliefs. “We’re filing this suit because the Obama administration has a responsibility to be transparent and accountable to the American people.

The IRS has a legal obligation to answer our inquiry for these records. On Tax Day especially Americans deserve to know whether they can trust the agency to which they’re sending their taxes,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement. “If the IRS and the Obama administration don’t have anything to hide, why not answer the request? Their delays and distractions make Americans think they’re trying to cover up their actions, just like ex-IRS employee Lois Lerner. We’re going to keep fighting to hold the IRS and Obama administration accountable because Americans deserve a government that treats them fairly and not one that harasses them because of their beliefs nor an administration that goes after its perceived political enemies.” IRS has been subversively used by the Obama administration to stifle political thought and action. America is not one of those communist countries where all dissent is crushed and political dissenters are either killed or left to rot in jails. IRS was used specifically by the Obama administration to secure the presidential re-election Barack Obama and it succeeded.

Thousands of conservative individuals and groups were denied legitimate tax-exempt status and kept hanging for years just because they were deemed to be conservative and thus presumed to be anti-Obama!

Lois Lerner, IRS’s head of department granting tax exempt status was recently held in contempt of Congress for her refusal to talk and reveal the truth. Much evidence is present but apparently not enough to indict many in the Obama administration! IRS actions hover around criminality and as in any crime, the one who has the motive is usually the suspect. The motive in this scandal was stealing 2012 election, which successfully happened; shut down dissenting voices, which again occurred. Nonetheless, voices of freedom are not likely to be shut down forever and sooner or later truth is bound to emerge with all its roar and thunder.
