As time goes on, it seems that Senator Ted Cruz’s advice to abolish the IRS may just be a good idea. Supposedly a non-partisan appendage of the government, the IRS has recently been reported to have used tax payer dollars in order to campaign for Obama.
The report comes from the Washington Post where they have compiled a list clearly defining the biased actions of the IRS. Showing examples of only when employees were on the clock, there were many illegal instances where agents pushed citizens to vote for Obama.
As if the IRS willingly targeting Tea Party groups in a blatant effort to hinder political agenda wasn’t enough, it seems as if they have been entangled in yet another “phony” scandal. As stated before, the Washington Post has compiled a list of definitive illegalities committed by agents of the IRS:
In one case the Office of Special Counsel, which investigates federal employees who conduct politics on government time, said it was “commonplace” in a Dallas IRS office for employees to have pro-Obama screensavers on their computers, and to have campaign-style buttons and stickers at their office.
In another case, a worker at the tax agency’s customer help line urged taxpayers “to re-elect President Obama in 2012 by repeatedly reciting a chant based on the spelling of his last name,” the Office of Special Counsel said in a statement.
…Another IRS employee in Kentucky has agreed to serve a 14-day suspension for blasting Republicans in a conversation with a taxpayer.
“They’re going to take women back 40 years,” the IRS employee said in a conversation that was recorded. The employee also said that “if you vote for a Republican, the rich are going to get richer and the poor are going to get poorer.”
That employee went on to tell the taxpayer she knew she wasn’t supposed to be voicing her political opinions, and asked the taxpayer not to say anything.
Of course, this kind of corruption is what we’ve come to expect from our tyrant in office, but who do you think will be held accountable for this? Will this also be simply swept under the rug along with all the other hindrances to the current administration? Let us know in a comment below.
