    Senator Cruz wants to shut down the IRS and start over. It's starting to make a lot of sense to unload this monstrosity and institute a fair tax.

    The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) declined Friday afternoon to meet a Senate Finance Committee deadline for answering detailed questions about the origins of the IRS scandal. The questions had been submitted jointly nearly two weeks ago by Chairman Max Baucus (D-MT) and Ranking Member Orrin Hatch (R-UT).

    In a joint statement to Breitbart News, Baucus and Hatch said:

    “It’s disappointing that the IRS failed to produce any of the documents requested by the Committee.

    "This is an agency that revolves around making the American taxpayer meet hard deadlines each and every year when they file their taxes, oftentimes penalizing those that are late.

    “The IRS needs to do much better.”

    Baucus and Hatch wanted to know who at the IRS made the decision to target conservative organizations, as well as who was aware of the conduct, and what specific actions they took to address it once they found it. They demanded that the IRS respond to each of the forty-one questions asked "no later than May 31, 2013."

    Worse than that, it's nuclear! I was talking to my neighbors this evening, and they're actually worried about getting an audit as they donated $ to Romney, and were outspoken critics of Ocommunist.

    Is this communist China? 1940's East Germany??? WTF is going on here?!?!? And why isn't anyone indicted yet?????:mad:

    And yes pspr, the IRS is about as useful as as a tick. A tax on consumption and the IRS abolished is LONG overdue! The dirty bastards!!!!!!!:mad: :mad: :mad:

    An administration that snubs congress? And there are still those gullible and naive enough to think Obama is not a tyrant?

    Congress needs to withhold further funding until they comply with these requests (since they are unwilling to actually make use of the Sargeant of Arms and the in-house Congressional jail) - they are obligated to do so.

    NYTimes thought it was a great idea:


    Oh wait... that was Bush
