Pelosi: IRS problem stems from court ruling

quote:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Monday that the IRS should be condemned for targeting conservative groups for special scrutiny in the run-up to last year’s elections, but she also blamed the Supreme Court for opening the door to broader political activity.


quote:

In the Citizens United decision, the court ruled 5-4 that corporations have First Amendment political rights and ruled that while they cannot contribute directly to candidates, they can run ads making their own views known.


quote:

“There needs to be more clarity in the law regarding the activities of tax-exempt organizations along with greater disclosure and transparency. We must overturn Citizens United, which has exacerbated the challenges posed by some of these so-called ‘social welfare’ organizations,” she said.

Yeah... no way this is proof for less government involvement and corruption. No, this means they should take even more steps to protect people from themselves.

Because the Supreme Court ruled that people can come together under a corp to exercise free speech the IRS targeted groups for political reasons? Got it.

Am I the only one who sees no causal connection with the Citizens United decision and this abuse of power? In fact, if anything, I see the exact opposite effect. The IRS should have been doing LESS, not more.

Maybe I am too unsophisticated to comprehend Nancy's brilliance?

There is none, but the Democrats will act like one exists to help cover their asses. I can't wait for the Senate race ads this coming cycle.

I believe she was also one of the first ones back last September to blame the Benghazi attack on the Republican controlled House because it had cut budgetary funding for State Department embassy security.

She's not a clown. She knows her followers will lap it up.

You got that right. Pelosi is a direct reflection of the majority of the denizens of SF.

it's only a conspiracy if it's "Right wing"

also, this coordinated spin has me thinking that there may be some meat in this IRS stuff. not obama, personally, but it may go up. otherwise they'd just repeat the "low level" line over and over

i'm going to bet that "the NAACP was audited in 2004" meme picks up, too
