Snuck into the highway transportation bill, if this thing passes this week soon the IRS will now how have the power to revoke your passport if you owe delinquet taxes. So, no getting away from this to a country where there are more sane laws if you owe the IRS. We truly have begun traveling down the road to no freedom int this country. A person may not owe that much but we should all realize the IRS has penalties and interest that could make whatever you owe over a period of time really blow out of proportion.

More Control Unanimously Approved by the Senate... IRS Can Revoke Your Passport!... Attached to Highway Transportation Bill!


The Senate has unanimously approved a provision to a highway transportation bill that would revoke the passports of people with seriously delinquent tax debts.




The provision, which was part of a larger amendment by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., to the Senate version of a surface transportation bill, was approved by unanimous consent last Tuesday.The amendment would allow the State Department to deny, revoke or limit a passport for any individual whom the Internal Revenue Service has certified as having a “seriously delinquent tax debt” in excess of $50,000. The amount would be adjusted for inflation in future years.

One would think that during the writing of a bill, if the idea comes across to attach it to another bill (sneak it through), there just might be something controversial about it, and maybe you might be better serving your countrymen by rethinking your strategy.

Or maybe there's an inherent problem with the way the system works, where scheduling is so non-helpful that the only way your bill is guaranteed to even be considered, is to attach it to a bill (sneak it through) that you know is a higher priority or in a better spot in line.

Either way..
