IRSPowerGrab.com: Don't Let the IRS Gut the First Amendment!

2,989 Letters and Emails Sent So Far

The IRS confessed to targeting conservative groups in a stunning abuse of power.

Nobody has been held accountable for these outrageous abuses.  Indeed, the apparent ringleader of the suppression scheme, Lois Lerner, was granted six months of paid administrative leave and then allowed to retire with her full pension!

The IRS now proposes not to rectify its own misbehavior, but to blame the victims and codify its own misdeeds by adopting draconian limitations on the free speech rights of 501(c)4 social welfare groups. An unprecedented outpouring of public opposition put over 140,000 comments in the docket opposing this rule.

The proposed regulations would restrict groups from engaging in voter registration drives, candidate debates, voter guides, voting records and key votes.  They would restrict any criticism of an incumbent federal, state, or local politician within 30 days of a primary or 60 days of a general election and effectively require groups to remove any reference to politicians from their websites during these windows.  They even distort the definition of "candidate" to include appointees, so groups weighing in on executive or judicial nominations would be restricted.

The House has passed HR3865 to stop the rule on a strong bipartisna vote. But the Senate refuses to act!

Tell your senators: "Stop the IRS's effort to gut the First Amendment!"

Come Jan the shoe will be on the other foot.....I cant wait for the paybacks to begin. Dirty Harry Reid will get his demotion!!!!!!
Do away with this unnecessary outfit put them in the street every last one
The I.R.S should be tagged and bagged.
Enough. We need smaller Government. Government clearly cannot be trusted when it feels it has the power. The power is still with the People. We will say what we want.
If the federal government isn't stealing our hard earned money one way they will find a way thru resources gas prices, etc. This country needs to be run by the people and not some donkey running rampant making his own decisions as well as breaking our constitutional rights as AMERICAN CITIZENS

The power grab is an assault on the Constitution & the freedoms the politicians swore to uphold.
