Rep Kelly Owning IRS Miller

 

I got this from TownHall.  I think this pretty well sums up the view of the citizenry. 

One of the many poignant allegations Kelly made to ousted IRS commissioner Steven Miller highlights the two freeze-frames below: “This is very chilling for the American people. […] You should be outraged, but you’re not.”

From Miller it was more of the babbling bs and misdirection that we’ve all become so familiar with from this administration. 

And, Kelly is right.  I don’t believe Obama just learned of this the other day.  You’ll note how he carefully worded his denial the other day.  I also don’t believe Miller didn’t know about this for years.  He needs to be criminally investigated.  At the very least he lied to congress. 

If there was any public trust of the government.  This destroyed the remnants.  Kelly notes this has a horribly “chilling” effect on the populace.

Kelly and the rest of us are more concerned today then we were before Miller testified.

    Some of the highlights:

    • “I have a grandson who’s afraid to get out of bed at night because he thinks there’s someone under the bed that’s going to grab him. And I think most Americans feel that way about the IRS.”
    • “This kind of reconfirms that, you know what, they [the IRS] can do almost anything they want to anybody they want, anytime they want. This is very chilling for the American people.”
    • “This is a Pandora’s Box that has been opened and I don’t think we can get the lid back on it.”
    • “I don’t believe the White House just found out about this in a news report.”
    • “I got to tell you, where you’re sitting, you should be outraged — and you’re not. The American people should be outraged, and they are.”
    • “This reconfirms everything the American public believes! This is a huge blow to the faith and trust the American people have in their government!”
    • “Is there any limit to the scope of where you folks can go?”
    • “It’s sure as hell intimidating. And I don’t’ know that I got any answers from you today.”
    • “I am more concerned today than I was before. The fact that you all can do just about anything you want to anybody. You know, you can put anybody out of business that you want anytime you want.”
    • “And when the IRS comes in, you’re not allowed to be shoddy, you’re not allowed to be run horribly, you’re not allowed to make mistakes, you’re not allowed to do one damn thing that doesn’t come in compliance. If you do, you’re held responsible right then.”
    • “This is absolutely an overreach and this is an outrage for all America!”

    Zero tolerance from a bunch that interprets the regulations according to their capricious whims.
    What could go wrong with that ?

    The trouble with attacking the IRS, is that they’ll release your tax returns. Most government representatives who try to expose wrong-doing by the IRS are publicly embarrassed with their tax returns and lose their next election. Public officials, even the honest ones, don’t look good on paper.

    if he is audited in the near future, we will have proof that we are no longer free, but slaves to the federal government.

    Listening to the reaming Miller and Zero by proxy got was music to my soul. I hate the IRS with a passion as do most small business owners.

    When you own a small business, the company taxes are passed on to the business owner as a personal tax liability, making the tax filings complicated (mine are typically 25-30 pages of forms). They’re constantly loosing forms or mis-calculating something, which then triggers the audit. In my last audit they lost half of my original filing (which they admitted). So I had to re-submit that year’s filing then go through the audit that the lost forms triggered anyway (once an audit is triggered, the audit must be performed before the case is closed). In every case, my filings are always found to be correct. Unfortunately, they don’t pay for my lost productivity and expenses to straighten out their screw-ups.

    Thanks for posting this video, James. It made my day. 😉 🙂 😆

      You’re welcome! They haven’t admitted to losing my forms from 3 years ago, yet. I’m just dancing to their tune.

      • HankH says:

        Yea, I know the dance as I’ve been through it a number of times in recent years. The last time they lost my forms in 2010, it took a year and a half to straighten the mess out. Most of the time was spent re-sending things they kept loosing. Then they kept transferring the case to different underlings who didn’t understand previous history and asked for things I already sent.

        Then there’s all the fan mail they send during an audit where they keep threatening deadlines with fines if I didn’t send them stuff I already sent. Every audit I’ve been through was a nightmare of dealing with incompetence.

        I was told by a tax attorney that the IRS doubled their staff in the first term of Zero and were under directions to go after people like me with complicated filings. It’s a highly targeted campaign focused on small business owners, people with investments, and income properties – the ones most likely to settle on paying a fine rather than fight.

        The IRS has been targeting certain groups (not just non-profits) since 2008 and congress just figured it out? I guess the IRS was careful to not target members of congress. But if it will lessen the abuses the IRS has been engaged in then I’m happy their day of reckoning has come.
