IRS Victory… For Now (Audio Report)

The IRS announced it would stop working on new rules to restrict the First Amendment rights of Tea Parties and conservative groups… until next year.

After receiving over 150,000 public comments–more than double what the Treasury Department and the IRS have received regarding “draft proposals” over the last seven years, the IRS agreed to wait, for now, on attempting to make permanent the policies they used to target conservative groups that led to last year’s scandal.

The recent Lois Lerner hearings have proved how widespread the corruption and disregard for Constitutional authority is within the IRS. The American people must remain vigilant and be ready to thwart the next IRS attempt to silence Christian and conservative speech.
