The IRS Scandal, Day 1150

IRS Logo 2The Daily Signal, Conservative Leaders Rally Behind Stopping IRS Abuse of Donor Disclosures for Nonprofits:

Legislation that would prevent the Internal Revenue Service from requiring tax-exempt organizations to include the names, addresses, or identifying information of donors in yearly returns could end up on President Barack Obama’s desk.

The House passed the bill, introduced by Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Ill., by a vote of 240-182 earlier this month.

The White House Office of Management and Budget said the Obama administration opposes the Hosue legislation. The bill “would constrain the Internal Revenue Service’s ability to enforce tax laws and reduce transparency,” it said. ...

The Conservative Action Project, comprised of leaders at over 100 organizations working toward common goals within the conservative movement, recently issued a memo calling for a curtailment of IRS power. ...

Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., introduced on June 15 a companion bill to the legislation passed in the House. Scott’s legislation was referred to the Senate Committee on Finance. “The IRS’ targeting of groups based on their political beliefs is totally unacceptable, and we must take concrete steps to ensure it never happens again,” Scott said in a prepared statement.

...and the mainstream media yawned. They pretty much only investigate Republican malfeasance.

An Obama veto would let new regs stand and allow a repeat of 2012 - a way to identify and intimidate conservative donors b/4 Nov to help HRC. Blatant in-your-face abuse of power from the left

Put them on record as opposing this and then give the facts to Trump who will tell the world.

“would constrain the Internal Revenue Service’s ability to enforce tax laws and reduce transparency,”
