IRS Harassed LIberal and Progressive Groups

Posted by madjillmom on June 3, 2013

The new Dem talking head meme is that it didn’t just happen to Tea Party, Jewish, and Christian groups, it happened to Liberal and Progressive groups. I have heard this bubbling up this past weekend. Give us proof.

As this IRS political harassment has come to light, the numbers have grown from about 75 groups to more than 500. Copies of the outrageous requests for intrusive information have been shown. So, where are the liberal groups IRS requests? They are now claiming that liberals got the same harassment, so produce the paperwork.

What was supposed to have happened to 75 groups has become 500. What was supposed to be a few rogue agents has now become information from 88 IRS employees. What was supposed to have ended well over a year ago has continued into May of this year.

This fire could have been put out almost immediately if a bunch of liberal groups had letters with the same intrusive questions. They haven’t given out names of liberal groups that have been harassed because if they release a name of a group and the investigation doesn’t show harassment, they will be caught in a lie.

Former IRS Head and White House Groupie Has Further Complications

Posted by madjillmom on June 1, 2013

Breitbart.com reports that Mr. Shulman, former IRS head,  who visited the White House more than 150 times is married to a woman who works to keep Tea Party voices silent. His wife works for Public Campaign, a union funded group that wants to keep grassroots groups from influencing elections with money. In other words, they work against average people having influence through education and advocacy of smaller government while being funded by unions who influence elections with little or no restrictions. It doesn’t seem a far stretch to see that this activity influenced the IRS to crack down on Tea Party organizations. Read the post from Breitbart.com here.

IRS, Tea Party Groups and Obamacare

Posted by madjillmom on May 10, 2013

The IRS has admitted to using its immense power against Tea Party and other Conservative groups in the 2012 election. Heads should role. Remember, this will be the agency that will monitor compliance to Obamacare and its thousands of pages of regulations. Connect the dots.

Fiscal Cliff Bill Goodies Traced to Baucus and Obama

Posted by madjillmom on January 7, 2013

This article from the Washington Examiner explains why your taxes went up.  Warren Buffett, GE, and others who have an in with Max Baucus (Dem Senator from Montana) got the goodies. Why did Obama want this included in this bill? Why won’t the MSM ask him about this? So GE can now keep its profits offshore and not pay any taxes? It pays to have friends in high places.

Press Wants Specifics from Romney, Not Obama

Posted by madjillmom on September 9, 2012

Both candidates have mentioned tax reform.  Romney has been pretty specific about lowering the taxes for all brackets and eliminating deductions.  But the press and pundits want him to tell us what deductions and loopholes he would change.  The Dems are running around screaming that Romney will cut the mortgage deduction. This is why no one is specific.

By the way, Obama talks about tax reform, but he doesn’t talk specifics either. Why is the burden on only Romney?

Obama’s 10/6/11 Press Conference

Posted by madjillmom on October 6, 2011

Thoughts on this press conference:

He really likes to hear himself talk.

He lectures banks about doing business and making prudent loans.  Then he is asked question about Solyndra – one of the biggest and least prudent loans around.

He keeps saying the Republicans have been for stuff in his jobs/stimulus bill in the past and will have to explain why they aren’t now.  Explanation – $14.8 trillion in current US debt.

He keeps saying his jobs bill is paid for.  Nothing is paid for when you borrow 40 cents on every dollar the government spends.

He really doesn’t want to campaign, he wants to stay and negotiate with congress so he won’t be able to run against a “do nothing congress”. By the way, he is going on another “bus trip” in a week to promote this jobs bill.  Does he really ride the bus from town to town or does he get off after a photo op and take Air Force One to the next town?

Republicans should have their program to put people back to work scored by the independent economists that tell him his program will create millions of jobs.  Just who are these economists that have told him his bill is going to work?   Give us names.  Are they the same economists that told you that the last huge stimulus would work?

It is all the Republican’s fault and he has bent over backward to negotiate with them.  Republicans want the air to be dirty.

Only two questions about Solyndra and Fast and Furious.  Epic fail, Press.

Propping up state and local government is the only way to grow jobs.

The only way to innovate is to have government investment.  GM Volt, Fiat, Solyndra, etc.

People put off going to doctors.  Didn’t Obamacare fix this?

US Downgraded

Posted by madjillmom on August 6, 2011

Last week wasn’t bad enough, so Standard and Poors downgraded America’s AAA rating.  After rumors bubbled up all day, they announcement came early evening, guaranteeing another horrible week in the market.  The compromise to raise the debt ceiling was too little and showed little hard evidence that the country understands and is willing to do what is needed to get our fiscal house in order.

I sure this will be spun as the fault of the Republicans and most especially the Tea Party members.  If the Tea Party Republicans had their way, the cuts would have been much greater, probably saving the US from the downgrading.  Remember, the Republicans only control the house.  The Dems control the Senate and the Presidency.  They wanted less cuts and tax increases or revenues (as they now like to call them).

Obama and Geitner promised no downgrade.  No that it has happened, the claim S & P calculations are incorrect.  Great response.  When will the Dem’s take the responsibility for massive spending and greater and greater debt on programs that do not work.

Everyone should get back to DC, including Obama (scheduled for a “joe six-bus” tour to counterbalance his trip to Martha’s Vineyard).  Appoint the members for the new super congressional committee, go straight to the Presidential Debt Commission report (totally ignored by the President), and start cutting for real right now.  Not next month, not next year, but now.

Quit Whining and Starve the Beast!

Obama and Taxes

Posted by madjillmom on April 20, 2011

Michael Barone has a great piece on Pres. Obama and the definition of taxes.  Not only did Obama sleep through every history class, he evidently slept through Tax 1 in law school.  Michael Barone is a really smart guy.  Obama… not so much.

Obama Does a Do Over Budget

Posted by madjillmom on April 11, 2011

Earlier this year, Pres. Obama proposed a budget for 2012.  It contained no spending cuts, offered up more “investment”, ignored Obama’s own Deficit Commission recommendations, and did nothing to even touch the entitlement programs that will send us to our doom.  Obama would make some speeches that said we had to do something about those entitlements, but when it was time for him to lead, he just wanted to keep spending at the same rate he has for the last two years.  This would reflect an increase in discretionary spending at 80% above the 2008 rate.  Even some Dems questioned his leadership in this area.

Then the last two weeks happened.  Paul Ryan took an honest stab at fixing the problems.  He wasn’t instantly vaporized.  The Speaker Boehner won the game of government shutdown politics.  While the Dems were running around screaming that Republicans hate women, Boehner was winning.  Yes, it should have been more, but a win it was.

Now comes Obama with a new and improved budget proposal.  Likely it won’t be anything great, but make no doubt about it, he was forced to this position by Republicans and that racist Tea Party.  It will feature higher taxes and cuts in the military.  Whatever it does to Social Security and Welfare will be only minimal tweaks just so they can say they are doing something.  Obama’s do-over will be heavy on rhetoric and short on real changes that might take us in the right direction.

Republicans and Conservatives are winning this debate.

Quit whining and starve the Beast!!

A Way to Tax Reform

Posted by madjillmom on April 6, 2011

Our friend, Rex Beverly, has an idea that would result in tax reform.   I think it is a great idea.  He believes the way to really get to tax reform is an amendment to the Constitution.  Here is his amendment.

In honor of April 15 Tax Day, I humbly offer an amendment to the US Constitution.

Henceforth all US Representatives and Senators (US congressmen) will be required to do their own personal taxes in a pre-designated secure US government building.  Congressmen are forbidden to have accountants, aids, lawyers, family members, computers, cell phones, land line phones, consultants or other assistance of any type at the tax preparation site. Each congressman is allowed during tax preparation only blank paper, pencils, pencil sharpener, erasers, pens, four function calculator, extra batteries and their personal tax documents.  Congressmen may leave the tax preparation site but all materials used in the tax preparation must remain at the site until their taxes are completed and signed.  To reduce the supervision load Congressmen must prepare their taxes in groups with a minimum group size of 5 and a maximum group size of 15.  As a congressman’s time is precious IRS agents will stand at the ready with complete sets of US tax forms and publications.  IRS agents are not permitted to explain any IRS documents or answer questions.  Answers to questions are found in the written IRS publications and directions.  Each group is to be supervised for 100% of their preparation site time by a US Court Justice.  Said supervising Justice must sign each congressman’s return certifying to the best of his/her knowledge that said congressman did all of the tax preparation work at the preparation site and that said congressman followed the letter and spirit of this amendment.

I think we should all forward Rex’s proposed amendment to our Congressional Reps and Senators before Tax Day.  The tax code is more evidence showing how our government is out of control.  I am sending it now.  Cut and paste and make a statement.
