The IRS Scandal, Day 531

IRS Logo 2Barrow Journal:  Losing Faith as Dysfunction Clouds Our Institutions:

We Americans seem to have lost faith in our major institutions. All around us we see dysfunction dominating the news. To wit: ...

The IRS openly, and without apology, targeted a small number of conservative groups for special scrutiny in what can only be seen as a political move designed to silence those organizations. When called in before Congress to testify, the IRS’ chief administrator smirked and dithered, basically flicking his middle finger to Congress. His agency is above the law, he seemed to be saying. The IRS has become the stereotypical ruthless tax collector. Adding a political agenda to that only makes that powerful agency more suspect. Unfortunately, nobody seems interested in reeling in the IRS and making sure it doesn’t become a gunslinger for either political party.
