Remember Obama’s IRS?

Remember Obama’s IRS?

Remember the IRS scandal that President Obama declared to be a non-issue. After all, he replaced the head of the agency and Lois Lerner retired, so problem solved. Right?

Wrong.

Today marks the 204th day of the IRS scandal and the administration is doing absolutely nothing but stonewalling. Today also may be the day that they crossed the line from just being an agency that harasses the Tea Parties and issue oriented groups that oppose the Obama agenda.

Bill Elliot voted for Barack Obama in 2012 because of Obama’s promises about ObamaCare. Bill Elliot had health insurance that he liked. Bill Elliot was diagnosed with cancer. Listen to his story…

The reality of ObamaCare hit home. His premiums had been $187 per month, they jumped to $1,500. The deductible is $13,500 per year.

Welcome to the World of Socialized Medicine! Actually, fully socialized medicine, as in US government single-payer would likely be substantially worse, but you get the idea.

Let me take just a moment out to note that this story actually has a hero. It’s not Barack Obama. An insurance broker heard Bill’s story and pitched in to help. The broker, C. Steven Tucker, worked with Bill and his carrier and got his policy reinstated. Here’s a portion of the email Mr. Tucker received from Bill along with his comment…

“Steve, the company decided to keep me active. Since it is a chronic illness. Until this illness kills me. Battle #1 is won. Now the hard part. You literally saved me. Thank you so much.”

Those are the greatest words I have ever heard in my 20 year career as a licensed health insurance broker. I couldn’t be a happier man today! – C. Steven Tucker

Mr. Tucker’s website is HERE. He serves clients in 15 states, check out his website and if you live in one of those states contact him. Let him know The Curmudgeon sent you. We don’t get anything from this other than a warm-fuzzy that we’ve sent a good man a potential client. And, if you contact him, please let us know how it goes.

Now, back to the rest of the story.

So, thanks to Mr. Tucker’s good work, Bill has his insurance back and can look forward to continuing his treatment, hopefully beating the cancer, and being around to see his kids grow up and have kids. Happy ending!

Well, not quite.

It seems that after Bill went on FoxNews with Megyn Kelly, the IRS decided that his doctors just weren’t far enough up his insides so they’re pitching in. Bill Elliot received a notice from the IRS that he’s being audited, all years from 2009 back to 2003. Let that sink in. 2009 back to 2003. Seven years.

If you’re unfamiliar with the tax code, the IRS can only audit you for three years unless you’re suspected of tax fraud. Got it?

Two points in closing.

First, I hope there’s a tax attorney out there who is a clone of C. Steven Tucker who will get on board with Bill and beat the bastards at the IRS into dust. And then sue them for harassment. And anything else he can think of.

Second, Darrell Issa needs to add Bill Elliot to his list of things to do with respect to his investigation of the IRS abuses. You can contact his office in Washington at 202-225-3906 or in Vista, CA at 760-599-5000. Of course you’ll be polite and simply mention Bill Elliot’s plight to nice staffer who answers the phone.

This needs to stop and people in high places need to pay a very heavy price. As in serious prison time.

    You move from irs issues to insurance. Both you assault with data designed to mislead. This is the kind of lying using part of the truth to cause another to believe something that is not the truth not factual. The IRS agents targeting political 501c(3) and other types of nonprofit organizations with political agendas targeted both sides of the aisle, left and right. As to insurance, under Bush rates up 33% and 19 million policies were cancelled

      Mark, you’re not the brightest bulb in the box and your reading comprehension is at public school level. Zero.

      The article is about the IRS attacking perceived enemies of Obama. The IRS went after 501c4s not c3s and they most certainly did not target “both”sides. There were a small handful of lefty c4s that were asked for more information and they were processed almost immediately. There are still conservative c4 who have not received their non-profit status.

      If you look at the timeline of the IRS efforts on c4s it’s obvious to anyone who can think (which probably leaves you out) that the purpose of the challenges was to take conservative issues organizations out of the 2012 election cycle and they were very effective at that.

      Bill Elliot is not the first Obama critic to be targeted. Dr. Ben Carson was audited about 60 days after his speech denouncing Obamacare.

      The IRS officials and the administration have stonewalled the investigation from before day one when Lois Lerner tried to pawn the problem off on a couple of rogue agents in Cincinnati. The latest example of that occurred this week when the IRS General Counsel, an Obama political appointee, answered “I can’t recall” over 80 times before Issa’s committee.

      Obama promised that his administration would be the “most transparent in history”. The only transparency anyone has seen, including a growing number of liberal commentators, is that Obama and his minions are transparently corrupt.

      Mr. Davis makes up his own statistics to support his double ad hominim attacks. And yet he makes no point.

    Do you remember the story of enemy’s list under Nixon ,looks this is brother of the same by IRS. Do you a wise Senator like Sam Ervin who can have a hearing with super powers or all Ervin’s are dead now. Are there on either side Senators who can run an inquiry on IRS.

    This is the 2nd such story that I’ve seen in the last few days. Can’t be coincidence that the IRS is suddenly auditing people who are publicly speaking out against Obamacare. The IRS, after all, is the enforcing arm of the Obamacare law.
