The IRS Scandal, Day 959

IRS Logo 2Wall Street Journal:  It’s Time to Hold the IRS Accountable for Unfairness, by Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS):

Your editorial The IRS Targets Political Donors (Dec. 16) hits the nail on the head about the IRS’s new proposed regulation that targets nonprofit organizations. When I heard about the IRS’s latest assault, I introduced legislation to block this “voluntary” rule. It would have a chilling effect on charitable giving and add a costly burden to charitable organizations. The IRS has already threatened donors in groups that it doesn’t like and proved that it cannot safeguard personal and private information from being hacked. Why should we trust them with a new source of data on donors? The proposal is bad for donors, it’s bad for nonprofits and it’s bad for the communities that are served by charitable donations. The IRS’s assault on the charitable sector must stop. My bill will do that.

Merry Christmas everybody and a Happy New Year. May next year find that the people have regained control of the nation and those responsible at the IRS face appropriate criminal penalties.
