Are you telling me we have 1 HONEST Washington supervisor in IRS? WOW that is amazing, most are saying they did not know anything about it, or they took the 5th.

Get rid of the IRS!

Leaning towards a Flat Tax but with reservations for home ownership, charities.

Get rid of the Department of Education!

Let States and Local Agencies find solutions for their education problems. Send lump sums to EACH state and have them figure out how to solve problems, not our octopus of a government.

It's time to make the collection of protection money ie withholding taxes/overpayments etc an illegal practice for the crime that it is.

It's time to get rid of a process that only serves bureaucrats, lawyers and accountants and NOT the American people. Almost all the revenue could be collected in other forms and if you want a tax/revneue to build roads or infrastructure call an road/infrastructure FEE.

They had a RIGHT to scrutinize 'bagger groups, and were CORRECT to do so.

No reason to give everyone tax-exempt handout status, or trust 'baggers. They don't want anyone to pay taxes, and should be audited first and often.

Deal, punk.

I'd say you're a liar, a moron, and a partisan nitwit. Obviously you can't prove either Woods OR Obama a "cheater," and would never protest the far more dubious 2000 election of Dear Leader Bush.

Get bent.

New IRS rules... EVERYONE is tax-exempt. EVERYONE joins the TEA Party and the rest of the 47% who don't pay taxes and who are dependent on government like the TEA Party.

Yemen? Are you the Somalia guy also? America when it has massive low taxes and no federal income tax was the greatest economic growing nation in history. We were not Yemen. We were not Somalia. We were the United States of America. Now no one is saying to go back to those levels. But expanding government and keeping it on hyper drive while more and more are getting poorer with massive corruption in government and the general population using it is not the answer either. We need to freeze and move resources around while we cut the fat out of anything corrupted. And there is corrupted.
