The IRS is current under investigation for targeting conservative non-profit groups. The IRS has been investigated cause they are taxing people that dont even make enough money are are getting taxed more that they should .The FBI has been put in charge of the investigation and to figure out was going on.

  The Obama administration has said that they will also be monitoring the situation but some doubt that they will do anything about it. people say that how can the same group investigate this problem cause they could be lying about the investigation and make false documents. I think that the IRs did make some mistakes if not several and for that should be investigated and prosecuted properly.

  when asked U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder told a U.S. House panel Wednesday the investigation into Internal Revenue Service targeting conservatives could go national. He also said that this whole situation wasn't going to get through quietly and quick as it had first thought of in the beginning. I think that this whole get done with and find out who is guilty and punish him her or them.

     There in the IRS is people trying to take over and be boss to everyone and they are getting mad at them but they keep doing to and they say if you dont like it then you guys can live but that is there job they just cant get upo and live. to be d because they have been making up thing to save there butt to the congress they say. The house wants the FBI to investigate everybody and see wat s going ton. and I believe that this has been going on since and that is already three years and they still haven't solved the problem. In my eyes, this comes to show that all problems in the system do not get solved right away because they lose focus on one problem when another one comes up.
 
    There is a man who can fix it but I dont no if he wants to tho. is one of the main guys if the IRS and he says that there have been mistakes but nothing to do with the politics. The IRS has been accused for going in to non profit business calls in the past and I believe that this has something to do with this now but this just needs to get solved already and this stuff is getting old already
.
 I think that people in the FBI can look around and what is happening,. get tired of doing these current events because I hate seeing what the government does and I especially don't like to hear it form the news because it isn't always the truth. I am getting tired of knowing what they do and i don't need to know. Not yet because it means nothing to me and I just cant wait thill this year is over so I could stop doing these

  The IRS is being investigated because it was said that the IRS targeted certain non Profit groups. Many things are being said Some say the IRS have hacked into phones and taxed people who do not have enough money pay those taxes. This has been going on for a while, basically the IRS is harassing these people.
  First of all this is all the IRS's fault, what they are doing is wrong and they should be blaming themselves instead of bothering other people. They have violated every right of ours and its going completely against the constitution and our bill of rights.
  Hopefully the FBI are getting to the bottom of this and find out what is really going on. also improper criteria has been in place for more than one year and six months. This should come to an End ASAP.

 The IRS is under investigation because they targeted conservative non profit groups. The white house wants the FBI to investigate them and I believe that this has been going on since 2010 and that is already three years and they still haven't solved the problem. A spokesperson of the president's denied the white house and that they had nothing to do with the IRS getting conservative non-profit groups.
  Steven Miller is one of the main guys if the IRS and he says that there have been mistakes but nothing to do with the politics. It had said that ineffective management allowed improper criteria to stay in place for more than 18 months and delays in applications and unnecessary requests.
   I think that its wrong that there doing this. This is in violation of our right to privacy.The government was found hacking phone calls of reporters, witch shows how information is controlled. Thats not right they should stop doing this.

Since the uncovering of The IRS debacle, there have been demands for reform have been ubiquitous. We learned last week that the IRS has been harassing people based upon their political affiliation (conservatives in particular). The accusation being levied against the IRS include wire tapping, A crime very reminiscent of the Watergate scandal of the Nixon era,. The White house denies having an prior knowledge of the incident prior to it's exposure.

Conservatives are demanding that those responsible be held accountable for their action (i.e. Prison). Although I do not agree politically with conservative groups like the Tea Party, I do believe the're right to privacy must remain untouched.

   They found out that the government has hacked into phones and that they are doing so to get information of the IRS. The FBI has been put in charge to bust them if they did or did not hack into the phones. I think that if they find out that they did hack and get information of the IRS they should be punish them by making them step down and letting other representatives that are willing to take the job more seriously and not hacking or steeling any money form the people or the IRS, same difference. They said that they have already done this once, not that long ago they had already busted them hacking into the phones of not only the people but also the IRS, this is bad because they could steel money and stuff. What they said, well more like their excuse is to show that they dont have more power that the government(well thats what a guy said).
   If the government or anybody ever hacks and gets into phone conversations they should be punished for doing so because they are violating our right to privacy which I find bad. If they are our government and yet they are showing that they are violating our natural rights, is not right. I actually think that we should take them and make them notice, well I think that they do know that they are violating our rights which is bad. They are not only violating our natural rights but they are also violation our constitution and our bill of rights. They are basically cheating on something that they have to follow as citizens any ways so they aren't either doing their jobs correctly but they are also violating our rights as people.

The I.R.S. is currently being "investigated" on the way they've been taxing. Some say the I.R.S. has hacked phones and taxed those who don't even have enough money to be taxed. They say they were targeting a conservative non-profit association. The Obama administration says they will carry out the investigation, yet many believe nothing will be done.
  In situations like this no one really knows who to blame. Could the white house be concealing the IRS, due to the fraud. I think many will be confused and begin to wonder whats really going on, but hopefully something right is finally done for the public, for the first time in so many years. The white house says they didn't have anything to do with it, but many workers and associations don't buy it.
  This is in violation of our right to privacy. The government was found hacking phone calls of reporters, witch shows how information is controlled. Every already knows what is really happening, it doesn't matter unless someone does something about it. I just hope the government can find a just cause and start doing things for the people instead of commerce or income.

The IRS was trying to hack into the public phones. One of the public found that the IRS was invading privacy and listening to conversations. There is no information yet whats so ever. This is wrong because the IRS is invading private space.
I as a tech oner would not like for other people to be minding my buisnes under any surcemstances. The IRS claims that they were listening and hacking phons so that they could invesegate crimes. I believe that the government well do nothing because they need the IRS to keep running for states security. This has raised lots of concerns.
This phone hack makes the United States look foolish, I hope that the government and court can fix this problem. Many people feel like they shouldn't be trusting the Government any more. People do not feel safe any more while holding their technology. The United States is braking laws such as the right of privacy. I also find this really disturbing.

   The big scandal occurring right now, in the the White House is the whole I.R.S. issue. Apparently the IRS is under some investigation,because they have found some targeting conservative non-profits groups. Also, the White House is denying they had anything to do with it.This case is the biggest scandal out in the media right now the IRS is using inappropriate criteria to Single out he Tea Party and a lot of other organizations.

   F.B.I investigators are going to investigate if this whole scandal have been illegal and see if they broke any laws. I don't really know what the big fuss is about but I really do think the white house and the IRS agents are hiding something but they keep if confidential. The IRS are some dirty people who take money from innocent people because that's there job. I just hope if they did something illegal work they better face some major consequences.

    I personally, believe that the IRS is the ones to blame for what is going on. But they don't want to do anything to stop it. Now, the White house is denying they had anything to do with it. Something really needs to happen if there doing something that break the laws. Not like other cases that are left alone this affect us the people too.

      Awhile back the government was found looking into the phone calls of reporters and using the IRS for political purposes, even though time has passed and changed this subject had came up at the White House. They started to talk about the illegal use of the IRS to scrutinize some groups and citizens because of their politics. A spokesperson of the president's denied the white house and that they had nothing to do with the IRS getting conservative non-profit groups.
      A report says that in the beginning of 2010 that the IRS used inappropriate criteria to single out the tea party and other organizations. It had said that ineffective management allowed improper criteria to stay in place for more than 18 months and delays in applications and unnecessary requests. According to the ig the IRS has fixed some of the problems but needs more to do.
      I think that it is crazy what the IRS was doing because they shouldn't be doing that in the first place. I also think that the IRS and government should be held responsible for the activities because they are the ones that were doing that and got caught in the act, so yeah, I don't know what else to say now so yeah.

A while backing they were talking a bout that the China people had got into the computers and where hacking and steeling money or something like that. The IRS is under the investigation to see who was doing all these things. It all came up in the White House. The IRS for doing it secretly and they knew what they were doing was bad but no one didn't do anything to stop them. I think they should just leave them and then one day come out of no where and catch them.

  The FBI is going to investigate if there was any illegal or broken laws. Something needs to be done and not just left alone like it has been for a long period of time. A report says that in the begin 2010 that the IRS used inappropciate criteria to single out the tea party and other organizations.


   According to the Ig the IRS has fixed some of the problems but still needs more to do.

  The IRS is under investigation cause they said stuff about the Tea Party and want to see more stuff about it. the way they should deal with this stuff is to tell the IRS to stop or if they don't just lock them up jail and show them thats what happens when they don't listen to the law.
  But it is the IRS to blame cause they let a group spy on them. So no one else should be the blame but them and they should be taught a lesson. I don't even know what this Current Event is about it didn't catch my interests so this is it.

It just gets me mad at what this government does.

The IRS is under investigation due to that they were targeting not profit groups. The IRS was mostly targeting business that don't make money and they would make them pay taxes. Sometimes even more of what they even had to pay. I think that , that is pretty dumb, how are you going to tax non profit organizations?

The people in the site house where concerned about what they saw that was going on. The FBI is now investigation that situation. Its pretty dumb because they are probably jus doing this to business that they don't want or like. They know that they don't make money, then they just say that they are not paying taxes and then they get shut down due to that.

I think that they should just stop with that. They should do their job like they are supposed to.

  The IRS is under investigation because they targeted conservative non profit groups. This topic came up in the White House. The White House denied they had anything to do with this. The IRS used inappropriate criteria to single out Tea Party and other organization.
  The FBI is going to investigate if there was any illegal or broken laws. The IRS would ask for unnecessary information to the people. One year ago the IRS was doing and Steven T. Miller didn't do anything about it. Both the IRS and The White House should be held responsible for this. The IRS for doing it secretly and knowing they were doing something bad but didn't do anything to stop. The White House for letting this go on for months. They should at least have done something.
  I think there both responsible for this, they both didn't do anything to stop. Now that the people realized it the white house denying. Something needs to be done and not just left alone like it has been for a awhile.
