Two words: Ted Cruz. He's also going to be the next president of the United States. You read it here first.

One more point: The "decline" of the Tea Party in 2012 was the result of Obama's IRS targeting them and similar groups starting in 2010. They had problems raising money and capturing and retaining members. If the IRS can be cleaned up before 2014, you'll see the Tea Party come out in force. The IRS scandal has energized them.

No Tea Party organization was denied non-profit, tax-exempt status. There is NO IRS scandal.

Ted Cruz is a one-term mistake. He is helping to turn Texas Blue.

No, I'm not kidding. Cruz is an extremist who could never win a general election and there is no IRS scandal.

my point is that you are are either in serious self-denial or delusional. The IRS's own IG found that the IRS was targeting groups because of their beliefs as reflected in their names. Saying there's no scandal will not make it go away. Somebody in the White House or in the IRS deserves some serious jail time.

One office in Ohio developed a system to quickly identify applicants for non-profit status. As you might know, solutions, organizations cannot obtain non-profit status if their primary mission is political activism. Groups, both from the right and the left, whose names indicated a political agenda, received additional scrutiny. All groups which applied were permitted to operate as an interim non-profit and no Tea Party group was denied non-profit status.

Really, solutions? I'm providing you with FACTS not RW Media Machine lies and misinformation. Issa cannot create a scandal out of nothing and if you had been paying attention to his committee hearings, you would know that what I posted is absolutely true.

I refer you to the HuffPo**** article, dated 5/13/13, "IRS Non-profit Groups" for an excellent historical perspective on the issue. You will also find clarifications of non-profit status and why political groups receive specific attention. I personally do not believe that ANY political group on either side should be tax-exempt.

Solutions.....don't caste your pearls before swine. You waste your energy on those who CHOOSE to be stupid. A 'child' can understand logic, but don't waste time on adult liberals.

I'm going to give you some help, TruthSeeker. You clearly don't understand so many of the issues being discussed in this forum. Google this:

Exemption requirements: 501(c)(3) organizations

It is so obvious to me and others that you know absolutely nothing and rely on the boring and repetitive babble of the right wing. You cannot possibly be taken seriously.
