That said, shortly after the scandal broke, it was announced that not one of the conservative groups was denied status. In fact, it seems the only groups which were not approved were liberal groups that were also possibly targeted or not targeted or... I just don't know. I am still not clear as to who was hurt. Conservative Tea Party groups were delayed but not denied. Liberal Progressive groups were or were not targeted and were denied, and all this is an attack on the extreme right. How's that again?
And then today, I see this news blog. So if the IRS targeted Tea Party groups how exactly did an LGBT group that sells bow ties end up on the list? I know this whole thing smells, but I need a clearer explanation as to how exactly this is a targeting of only the right?
We seriously need to get the political groups out of the charity group tax exempt. Wanna avoid this problem? Dear Congress, please quit holding hearings on non-existent scandals and expensive votes or nonvotes on laws already on the books. Quit stopping laws solely because you get paid by special interest groups or don't like who the People chose for president. Try this on for size. Do your job. Clarify the tax code so the IRS is not in this position to guess what exactly is charity and what is exactly political action.
This scandal is from someone not doing their job following the Supreme Court ruling that created this mess because suddenly both sides had money from groups got to claim they were not political while being political. The job not done was not the IRS who failed, but once again it was Congress playing politics instead of taking care of the country.
