President Obama vowed Monday to hold the Internal Revenue Service accountable if reports of political targeting are proved true.
"If in fact IRS personnel engaged in the kind of practices that have been reported on and were intentionally targeting conservative groups, then that's outrageous. And there's no place for it," Obama told reporters.
"And they have to be held fully accountable. Because the IRS as an independent agency requires absolute integrity, and people have to have confidence that they're ... applying the laws in a nonpartisan way."
Obama said he learned of the allegations through news reports on Friday.
The IRS also applied extra scrutiny to applicants with statements that "criticize how the country is run" or that sought to educate the public on how to "make America a better place to live," designations that would have included conservative political groups looking to apply for 501(c)(4) status.
Those disclosures are included in the appendix of an inspector general's report, obtained by CNN, that has caused widespread anger among lawmakers on both sides of the aisle as well as conservative groups.
In case you've been in a coma the past 4 years, Obama isn't in charge of anything. He's nothing more than a cardboard cutout of a commercial to make it look like someone's actually president. Just like the mission to kill bin Laden when he thought he'd be playing golf all day and had to be photoshopped into the photo, and Benghazi when the real-time video of the entire battle was being watched in the White House, he doesn't have a clue what's happening in government. He got his script of what to say, he followed his orders, and he gets to ride in the gold seat on the government gravy train a while longer.
Obama is a candidate for the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on human society in the history of civilization. There is nothing known about him that isn't fraudulent.

AP: Cancer, MS patients may face outrageous costs under Obamacare
Though the Associated Press acknowledges that insurers are forecasting double-digit premium increases for individual policies, it is also quick to note that the Obama administration “says the industry warnings are overblown.”
California Covered’s Dana Howard further argued that consumers will be protected because the law limits total out-of-pocket costs – the deductibles and copayments that policy holders are responsible for, apart from monthly premiums. In California, the annual out-of-pocket limit for an individual is $6,400, although it can be as low as $2,250 for low-income people.
But that’s still a lot of money, and if you are a smoker, for instance, insurers are allowed to charge you up to 50 percent higher premiums. For a 55-year-old smoker, the penalty could reach nearly $4,250 a year, on top of the standard premium
Quit smoking fckers!
Does Obamacare limit premiums?

How does the insurance company prove that someone is a smoker?

Which Al Qaeda knew would be produced so they planned their attack a couple of months before the video existed.
It just makes sense that there would be someone lying to prevent people from knowing the details of the attack. If everything had gone according to Al Qaeda's plan, then the focus would have been on where Stevens was, what condition he was in, and the details of Obama "negotiating" with the Muslim Brotherhood for his release in exchange for the terrorist blind sheik that bombed the World Trade Center the first time and tried to kill 30 thousand people.
You'd think the White House would have been smart enough to have a Plan B in case Plan A was a disaster, like the intended kidnap victim got killed. They just went ahead with Plan A and began spewing the preplanned lie.
Except if it was an Israeli plan all along that they kept secret even to their biggest ally/protecter to try and suck the Americans into a wider Middle East war to cover for their own provocative actions in the Gaza Strip and Syria.

Registered Republican. Come on that was a little funny.

On a side note, well sorta, let's assume we are all tax paying Americans, is anyone else offended by these commercials offering services to people who don't pay their taxes or owe back taxes with a solution for them to pay much less than what they owe?

As a tax paying American, I am offended by people trying to not pay taxes or negotiate to pay less. At the end of the day I'm sure we as tax paying Americans all foot this bill.

And this has been going on since way before Obama, before you drag him into this.

I've got a suggestion for you. How about you do something you, and Obama, have never done. Read the goddam Constitution. In it you'll see that Congress controls all spending. There are laws, and there is funding. If the government is broke, like it is today, then there isn't any money to spend on enforcing a law. You can't spend money you don't have. Let me acquaint you with a real-world fact you Democrats seem to be ignorant of. Money doesn't grow in trees.
When money starts growing on trees, then there will (maybe) be enough money for this hippy pipe dream of an Orwellian dictatorship the Democrats have in mind.
The Constitution is the authority. Now, read the 14th Amendment and you'll see the ONLY payment the Constitution commands the Congress to make.
What the 14th Amendment says is, you have to pay the public debt before you write a welfare check of give someone foodstamps or pay for some pipedream of a so-called "healthcare" plan.

You seem to have about as good of an understanding of the way our government works as Obama. It's no wonder the faculty at the University of Chicago Law School described Obama as "lazy and unqualified".

Citing July Speech, I.R.S. Decides to Review N.A.A.C.P.
In an interview Thursday, Mr. Bond defended his remarks, saying they focused on policy, not politics.
"This is an attempt to silence the N.A.A.C.P. on the very eve of a presidential election," he said. "We are best known for registering and turning out large numbers of African-American voters. Clearly, someone in the I.R.S. doesn't want that to happen."
He added, "It's Orwellian to believe that criticism of the president is not allowed or that the president is somehow immune from criticism."

The NAACP clearly violated the law. So what are you doing here with your smarmy, cheap propaganda and innuendo?

The NAACP was clearly in the wrong and was told so by the IRS.

Profiling tax cheats is relatively easy.

Start with anybody in a cash business or who receives part of their compensation in cash, such as waitresses.

As for enforcement, require documentation of all charitable contributions to be furnished with the return and you will see all such deductions plummet.

<quoted text> Yes, I have read it you dumass &, it leaves to much open to interpretation. Like I've said, there is no reason it cannot be revised & updated to suit there life & environment, civil & moral lives we live today. Their visions of the world was nothing like today, unless of course, you're saying they were psychic! They were womanizers & racist, & that alone negates any argument you have. There have been far too many amendments to it!
Now to answer your questions. I agree with it all, but if they were geniuses as you all seem to think, they would've included a clause that inhibited Congress, or any branch of govt from making more money than the average American. If they're in a totally different tax bracket than the common man, that alone is a conflict of interest. They will only pass laws that serve the rich, as they are which is the problem we have in America today! There is enough people in the world to have a law that every American rich or poor should be entitled to serve at least 1 year in Congress, no one can serve more than 1 year in a row if my first idea wasn't good enough for you. Then congresses interest will serve the common man because, common men will be running it.
"...if they were geniuses as you all seem to think, they would've included a clause that inhibited Congress, or any branch of govt from making more money than the average American."
Why? Are you assuming they cannot be more significant to the GENERAL WELFARE of the nation than the average person? Therefore, they should not receive more than the average person?
Should a person who earned a degree in Mechanical Engineering be paid the same as a person who works as an electrician?
You are demonstrating your indoctrination with Marxist ideology.

I've got an idea for you. How about you vote your Congressman out of office if you don't think he's worth the money they are paid. Or, vote him out if you don't like any Congressman getting paid more than the average person. If you change your Congressman often enough, sooner or later you'll get one in there that is capable of changing the system and instituting a pay structure for Congressmen where they are paid the same as the average person.

Oh, yeah. Politicians are routinely notorious thieves. If you pay them less, would you think they will steal more?

I'll tell you why Marxism has never worked, and it is impossible for it to ever work among humans:
Marxism is diametrically opposed to the genetically programmed instinct of humans to stratify their societies.
To force humans into a Marxist system, you must condition them to ignore their genetically programmed human instinct to stratify their societies.
Do you think this is the reason Janet Napolitano is buying more tanks than were landed on D-Day, more machine guns than the Marines had on Iwo Jima, and enough ammunition for both sides to fight World War I for TWENTY years? Do you think she is obviously preparing for a large-scale war to condition the American population to ignore their genetically programmed human instinct, like every other communist dictator did without exception?
