I am unaware of any statute under which anyone would have standing for such a suit. The foundation of any class action is a group of people who can present evidence of comoensable damage. I don't see that here.

The very first amendment to the Constitution of the US is the right to freedom of speech. By targeting politicians because of what they are saying publicly, the IRS is directly violating that God-given right. Since the IRS is a division of the US Government, they are violating the Constitution which requires a lawsuit to force them to stop. The damage here is; those politicians targeted by this government agency are prevented from seeking public office, lose valuable votes to earn an office,...

That my friend is compensible damage.

Sorry, I'm for higher taxes for those who *can* pay higher--we need *truly* income-based tax levels--those at or below poverty level should not be taxed regardless of whether they're on Social Security or otherwise. Those who are in the higher income brackets should be taxed more. This to me is a fact of altruism

You got your wish. The top 10% income earners pay 71% of all federal income taxes.

If everyone...and I mean everyone paid a flat tax rate of let's say...7% with no returns and no write-offs, it wouldn't take long before we had no national deficit. Hmmm, come to think of it, they could put that money into growing our economy!!!

The IRS is a private corporation, not a government agency. The IRS is a holding facility of our tax dollars that get funneled to the Federal Reserve, International Banks, and the British Crown. They have no legal or constitutional authority to abscond with our tax dollars and use them against the world funding the insane wars that they start.

We have become an Administrative State instead of the Federal Republic as outlined in the Constitution.. Our Supreme Court is supposed to uphold the Rule of Law not interpret it. The IRS is absolutely unconstitutional as are most of the agencies created by Congress. We especially should not have the IRS running our medical insurance. The IRS has overstepped its jurisdiction and allowed by our government with no regard for the Checks and Balances we are supposed to have. Fair tax is the way to go.

Karl, it isn't about no wanting to pay taxes, it's about removing the IRS and going to a flat tax rate. You would still have a Federal Tax to pay, but it would be more fair across the board, and the IRS, which was supposed to be temporary, would be gone.

Excuse me, but Im not paying taxes to support government leaches including the biggest leaches of all, U.S. Presidents and Congressmen! They exist now only to serve themselves! The citizens of America would be much better off without the IRS, DHS, TSA, EPA, FDA and more! These organizations are worthless!

I agree... We need to change the idea that government is our daddy. It is not. it has neither the authority or the ability to provide 'services and benefits' That is OUR responsibility not the governments. so.. end the IRS and all the other over-reaching ineffectual programs the government has imposed on us. It amazes me that we think the governmental has the moral collateral to distribute charity. Face it, they use our sympathies to finance further control and oppression of not only...

Pay our taxes so our corrupt government can give it all to illegals and the muslim brotherhood and you have the nerve to tell people to get over it. Sound like a brainwashed obummer supporter.

We the People can and will abolish yhe infamous IRS which has been unconstitutional since since its conception! Now let us join together and put them out of business once and for all! The IRS is all demonic as it is run by the devil himself! It is time for a flat tax or whatever proven tax code that must be approved by the citizens of this great nation and then EVERYONE (NO EXCLUSIONS) pay their fair share equally!

Now is maybe the last time we're ever going to have to get to get rid of these bastards; once and for all. We can't just talk about it...we need to turn up the heat. It's not going to be easy. Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, could champion the cause. At least they are the only two in government today that I semi-trust.
