Setting up a lower tax entity in Ireland to avoid paying higher taxes is entirely legal. The same way political organizations file for tax-exempt statuses to avoid paying taxes.

The question is....why is Lerner being fired for investigating the tax avoidance strategies of those organizations....but McCain is not being fired for investigating Apple for their tax avoidance strategies?

It would be amazing if you were allowed to vote in this country.
Really, if you have that right it should be revoked for this idiotic post calling for a U.S. Senator to be fired.

Really, if you are here, you should be deported for saying someone's voting rights should be revoked for exercising their right to free speech. The idiot senator SHOULD be fired if Lerner is fired for doing the same thing he is doing. Or do the GOP only go after women?

The Apple investigation included dem senators, genius. Apple executives want the public to focus on the U.S. taxes the company has paid, but the real issue is the billions in taxes it has not paid, thanks to offshore tax strategies whose purpose is tax avoidance, pure and simple,” subcommittee Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich.) said during the hearing.”

Many of us have attempted to inform you far lefties that many of the rich demorat supporters have money overseas, not just Romney. Many of them didn't pay the amount of taxes Romney paid or gave to charities in the amount he did. Just a bunch of friggen hypocritss.

Lerner specifically targeted a particlar poltical faction which is against the constitution. Try to keep all info handy in the future.

Unfortunatly for you, you are still clueless and gullible.

In his most recent financial disclosure from 2011, Obama and his wife reported having between $200,000 and $450,000 in the Vanguard 500 Index Fund, which invests in the largest U.S. corporations. According to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as of Sept. 30, 2011, the fund’s biggest holding was 8,272,039 shares of Apple Inc., then valued at $3.2 billion.

Lerner targeted an organization whose goal is to not pay taxes. In the real world that is a red flag that should be investigated. She was doing her job to crack down on tax avoiders. Try to keep all info handy in the future.

THEY didn't ASK him to go, what a dolt.

Sen. John McCain, a proponent of arming Syrian rebels, quietly slipped into Syria for a meeting with anti-government fighters Monday.

Gen. Salem Idris, chief of the Supreme Military Council of the Free Syrian Army, accompanied McCain across the Turkey-Syria border. McCain met with leaders of the Free Syrian Army from across the country, who asked him for increased U.S. support, including heavy weapons, a no-fly zone and airstrikes on Syrian government and Hezbollah forces, according to The Daily Beast, which first reported the senator's unannounced visit.

McCan't is going to try to give more of our money away, if not start another war.

That's teabaggers for ya'.

She apologized for the IRS in front of the National Bar Association…what else do you want..?

And why only conservative groups were put to the test while the Barak H. Obama Foundation was fast-tracked by Lerner with apparently zero scrutiny unless Malik Obama is tiny- the address given turns out to be a PO Box.

Lerner was using Stalinist tactics..even dems Senators like Carl Levin of MI who just yesterday with McCain asked for her head! of course they want her gone…but she won’t go without bringing a lot of politicians with her for sure.

Demrats jumping the ship!!

Published March 21, 2013
Associated Press

The chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee and a senior Republican are urging President Obama to use limited military force to end the two-year civil war in Syria.

Democratic Sen. Carl Levin and Republican Sen. John McCain wrote the president Thursday, calling for air strikes against the Syrian regime's aircraft and creation of a safe zone inside Syria's northern border.

The two lawmakers said Patriot missile batteries already deployed to southern Turkey could be positioned to protect the zone, if Turkey agreed.

The biggest clue that the IRS did something wrong?

THEY APOLOGIZED FOR THEIR WRONGDOING

....and Lerner planted the question to allow for the apology.

Note to our leftist friends....step away from media matters, the progressive, the underground and the rest of the Soros/Moore garbage. If you must watch MSNBC, watch Andrea Mitchell.. Asking you to watch the hearings on CSPAN might be a reach, but it's the best info out there.
