How big is the IRS scandal? Does it surprise you at all?
May 13, 2013 at 11:14 AM

 How far do you think this scandal goes? Does it surprise you to learn that the IRS is likely doing this to people?

"The IRS inspector general will release an audit sometime this week, but congressional aides gave several media outlets a draft of the audit. According to the document, IRS employees in the Cincinnati office used several troublesome phrases to single out 501(c)4 applicants for review — including, at various points between 2010 and May 2012, groups that 'criticize how the country is being run,' aim to educate Americans 'on the Constitution and Bill of Rights,' and lobby to 'make America a better place to live.'"

    Not even a tiny little bit.  This administration seems to be all about shutting people up.  How many of the Benghazi whistleblowers were threatened and demoted?

    Not even on the evil coasts.

    Doesn't surprise me a bit... big bureaucracies attract this kind of thinking.

    Does not surprise me in the slightest. do a quick search into how many often conservatives get audited, even though nothing has been found wrong in previous audits.

    Nope doesn't surprise I fact I expect nothing less of this corrupt government we have and it's on both sides of the aisle.

    I think this scandal is horrible, and in my opinion, conservatives should spend more time on this than they are on Benghazi.

    It doesn't shock me -- people find ways to abuse whatever power they have all the time -- but when we're talking about something like this, which has ramifications to our first amendment right to assemble, I think we need to send a strong message that it won't be tolerated.

    Oh yes. 

    Because if we say it, it must be true.

    Because if we heard it on Fux Newz it must be true.

    This exactly.
