Doubling Down on Abuse

Schumer calls for using the IRS to suppress the Tea Party:

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) proposed using the Internal Revenue Service to curtail Tea Party group funding during a speech on how to "exploit" and "weaken" the movement at the Center for American Progress on Thursday.

Arguing that Tea Party groups have a financial advantage after the Supreme Court's 2010 Citizens United decision, Schumer said the Obama administration should bypass Congress and institute new campaign finance rules through the IRS.

Naked tyranny.

The IRS does not exist to suppress political opposition to those in power.
