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.

I can find nothing in our laws and/or Constitution that authorizes the government to take a percentage of the money we earn to support ourselves and our families... As near as I can tell, the IRS is a private institution based in Pueto Rico... Taxes from other sources are legal, but taxing our incomes is apparently not...

Puerto Rico never paid taxes until recently. I know because I'm from there. Where you got that information I don't know but it's a total fabrication. Aside from that I signed the petition also.

The IRS, it seems, has become an arm of the corrupt, leftists in Washington ... As a result, it must be abolished, as presently constituted ......
