It’s been a rough week for the IRS. On Monday it was revealed that during the last tax season, the IRS phone system hung up on 8.8 million callers looking for help with their taxes, a massive increase from the half a million hangups that were experienced the year before. The IRS is also being criticized for levying outrageous fines on businesses that reimburse their employees for health insurance; fines that are 12 times higher than the statutory limit written in the Affordable Care Act.

Lawmakers voted overwhelmingly in favor of bringing back to life the now-expired Export-Import Bank. An amendment to revive the bank, which saw its authorization come to an end in June thanks in part to staunch opposition from conservative lawmakers, was attached to another measure that passed 67-26.
The Senate has now extended a potential lifeline to the bank via legislation that would fund federal road and bridge projects for the next six years.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., kept a promise made to Democrats earlier this year that in exchange for their support on an important trade deal, he would allow a vote on a measure to extend the bank.
Conservative Republican lawmakers oppose the bank and have called it a form of “corporate welfare” and “crony capitalism,” but GOP leaders noted Sunday that many Republican and Democrat lawmakers want the bank to survive.
“I don’t see any reason they should not be able to debate and then vote on this to sort it all out,” McConnell said after noting there was “overwhelming bipartisan support” for the bank.
The amendment is now part of the “must-pass” highway funding measure but that does not guarantee Ex-Im will be brought back to life.
Even if the Senate passes the highway bill this week, House Republican leaders say they do not intend to take it up, in part because they don’t want to deal with the Ex-Im amendment that many among conservative rank and file oppose.
House Republicans instead want the Senate to take up a five-month highway funding extension the lower chamber passed weeks ago. It does not include an extension of the bank.
Conservative Republican and libertarian-minded lawmakers and outside conservative groups have increasingly called for an end to the bank, saying that the bank is welfare to corporations like General Electric and Boeing while the burden is shouldered by taxpayers. The bank has also been mired in corruption scandals.
But backers believe the bank supports thousands of U.S. jobs that would be lost if the bank is extinguished.
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Sunday the bank supports 165,000 U.S. jobs.
“A vote for that bank is a vote for jobs, a healthy economy and the prosperity of American families,” Reid said.
Judicial Watch documents prove the IRS used donor lists of tax exempt organizations to target them with audits

It’s been a rough week for the IRS. On Monday it was revealed that during the last tax season, the IRS phone system hung up on 8.8 million callers looking for help with their taxes, a massive increase from the half a million hangups that were experienced the year before. The IRS is also being criticized for levyingoutrageous fines on businesses that reimburse their employees for health insurance; fines that are 12 times higher than the statutory limit written in the Affordable Care Act.
But the latest news on a long running IRS scandal takes the cake. Judicial Watch announced earlier this week, that they had obtained documents that prove the IRS used donor lists of tax exempt organizations to target them with audits. These were largely conservative organizations opposed to the Obama administration. The IRS attempted to issue a “gift tax” of 35% on some of these donors, despite the fact that a gift tax on donations was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, and hasn’t been used since 1982.
While many of these organizations are hardly saints, (the documents show that Crossroads GPS was targeted, an organizations that is associated with establishment heavyweight, Karl Rove) this scandal reveals the awful truth about our government. Our government agencies are not designed to execute laws, they exist to serve whoever manages to capture them. If an individual or organization publicly opposes the people running our government (which in this case is Obama, and the financial elite that own him) they will use their agencies to hurt them in any way they can.x

The chairman of the top House committee probing the IRS political witch hunt of President Obama’s foes said documents prove that the agency targeted conservatives and then tried to destroy the evidence and he promised “news” on the panel’s investigation next week.
“I promise you – there will be news on the IRS side as early as next week. So stay tuned,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chair of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
Chaffetz this week detailed elements of his panel’s probe in an address to the Ripon Society in Washington, accusing the IRS of violating a House subpoena in destroying evidence and mocking President Obama’s claim on Jon Stewart‘s Comedy Channel show that “the real scandal around the IRS” is underfunding the agency.
“Probably the biggest thing our committee is looking at is the IRS,” said the Utah lawmaker. “You have political targeting that is factual at this point. There are no ifs, ands or buts. You had groups within the IRS who were politically targeting conservatives and impeding their First Amendment rights,” he added.
