Recent outrages perpetrated by President Obama's Internal Revenue Service (IRS) have made it crystal clear that we must put a stop to this behemoth of abuse! It is time to ABOLISH THE IRS!
FRC needs your financial support to take advantage of what may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get rid of an oppressive, easily corrupted organization and complicated tax code that takes from your family to feed an insatiable federal bureaucracy. It needs to be replaced!
Right now FRC is working with Senator Ted Cruz and Representatives Steve Scalise, Jim Jordan and others to rein in an out-of-control government. And there is no agency more out of control because of its radical leaders and staff than the IRS!
The IRS represents what is wrong with our government.
Recent revelations have confirmed what we've been saying for years, the IRS is a leash that liberal politicians and activist bureaucrats use to restrain and intimidate churches and conservative citizens. The complicated and ever expanding tax code grants them almost unlimited power to harass law abiding citizens.
America's tax code is so complicated that it cannot even be understood by the IRS agents themselves and has become a breeding ground for abuse.
A simpler and more fair tax system.
Motivated by political considerations, the IRS employees systematically harassed Christian and conservative organizations such as the Billy Graham Evangelical Association, Samaritan's Purse, the National Organization for Marriage, Dr. James Dobson, the Thomas More Society, Coalition for Life, dozens of Tea Party groups and many, many more.
The U.S. tax code has become so impenetrable, complex, and massive that politicians and Washington bureaucrats can manipulate it to accomplish whatever they want and the American people don't have the means to fight back.
But FRC will fight back for you!
Now is the time to move to a simpler, fairer system of taxation that is far less likely to be corrupt and used for political purposes. We must have a system that requires very few government employees to manage.
FRC favors a flat tax with limited deductions for charitable contributions and a few other essential areas.
The simple flat tax will force the Washington politicians and bureaucrats out of the shadows. They will no longer have an unfathomable tax code to hide behind and manipulate. As a result, they'll lose their power and once again be accountable to the American people.
With your support, we will increase our pressure on Congress
I personally will be meeting with key senators and representatives on Capitol Hill to urge them to introduce legislation to eliminate the IRS.
This will be a costly endeavor both in terms of time and money. Traditionally, summer is when FRC funding drops. But at the same time, the window of opportunity to get Congress to rein in or eliminate the IRS is very short. We must strike now while the IRS scandals are on the minds of the American people, the politicians and the media. Tomorrow may be too late.
In a matter of weeks the Obama administration will expand the IRS and grant it new powers to stifle faith, oppress families, and attack freedom. Some 16,000 new IRS agents will be unleashed to enforce provisions in ObamaCare that require people of faith to fund abortion-inducing drugs or face the full wrath of the government.
That's why it is so important that FRC raise $500,000 without delay. At the very least, the IRS must not have the power to enforce ObamaCare. As House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy so aptly put it: "After their outrageous actions and the lack of any accountability-why should any American trust them to be involved in their health care?"
So please give an emergency contribution now to help FRC stop any immediate expansion of the IRS and eventually abolish this abusive tool of tyranny by simplifying the U.S. tax code.
