Three businessmen told the Senate Finance Committee today of Internal Revenue Service agents who, with guns drawn, broke down doors, terrified workers and forced teen-age girls to change clothes in front of male agents in raids at the men's homes and businesses that they said were unnecessary.
The IRS is an independent organisation and rightly so, so that it have the fullest independence to check upon BOTH democrats and republican and just plain ANYONE whom they have suspicions that they had been hidingThe IRS is an independent organisation and rightly so, so that it have the fullest independence to check upon BOTH democrats and republican and just plain ANYONE whom they have suspicions that they had been hiding taxable income from the american People.
The extremist Tea party had shown high income and made up of many wealthy persons, and thus their display of wealth and power beyond the ordinary american, akin to a guy who buys a Lamboghanni WITH CASH and not credit.
Seriously: The Internal Revenue Service official in charge of the tax-exempt organizations at the time when the unit targeted tea party groups now runs the IRS office responsible for the health care legislation. Sarah Hall Ingram served as commissioner of the office responsible for tax-exempt organizations between 2009 and 2012. But Ingram has since left that part of the IRS and is now the director of the IRS’ Affordable Care Act office, the IRS confirmed to ABC News today.
The Tea Party movement spontaneously formed in 2009 from the reaction of the American people to fiscally irresponsible actions of the federal government, misguided “stimulus” spending, bailouts and takeovers of private industry. Within the first few weeks of the movement, Tea Party Patriots formed to support the millions of Americans seeking to improve our great nation through renewed support for fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free market economic policies.

Let's say the IRS loses the case and they must pay.
Where do you think they are going to get the money?
Insurance maybe? This is my guess, as I am sure that they are covered through insurance for things like this.
However chances are their insurance rates are going to skyrocket, and where do you think they are going to get all of that extra money they will have to pay annually to the insurance company (who I am sure is very close to the top officials at the IRS and the Federal Reserve)?

We routinely review the benefits available to Federal Government Employees and we have created exclusive solutions that form the backbone of our Federal Government Benefits packages. We offer personal umbrella liability insurance,

The traditional rule is that the government or sovereign cannot be sued without its consent. This doctrine prevented citizens from bringing actions against the government to redress wrongs allegedly committed against them by the government.

Sue who though? That IRS Commissioner sat on the stand for hours yesterday and refused to answer nearly every question given him, including who was in charge.
If you attempted a personal suit, you'd just get the same runaround and end up with some low level staffer. You wouldn't gain anything and some dude who WA$ just doing as he was told would lose his job.
The idea is to make the IRS look so damn bad that they restaff the entire organization, or scrap it all together.
