IRS Changes are about to put “tea party groups out of business
This is despicable:
Democrats are trying to make sure conservative groups are silenced in the 2014 midterm elections, says Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel.
“That’s the big, dirty secret of the omnibus negotiations. As one of the only bills destined to pass this year, the omnibus was – behind the scenes – flurry of horse trading. One of the biggest fights was over GOP efforts to include language to stop the IRS from instituting a new round of 501(c)(4) trading,”: she wrote Friday, referring to a new rule governing nonprofits that was: introduced: by the Treasury Department and the IRS during the Thanksgiving recess.
“What the rule in fact does is recategorize as ‘political’ all manner of educational activities that 501(c)(4) social-welfare organizations currently engage in. It’s IRS targeting all over again, only this time by administration design and with the raw political goals–as House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich., notes–of putting ‘tea party groups out of business,'” Strassel said.
“Congressional sources tell me that House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers, R-Ky., had two priorities in the omnibus negotiations. One was getting in protection for groups that morally oppose Obamacare’s contraception-coverage requirement. The other was language that would put a hold on the IRS rule.”
The White House and Senate Democrats had a different agenda, including more funding for Obamacare and the International Monetary Fund, according to Strassel.
“Yet my sources say that throughout the negotiations Democrats went all in on keeping the IRS rule, even though it meant losing their own priorities,” she revealed.
They didn’t have any problem with it was only liberals doing it.
