The -- targeted Tea Party -- about -- isn't that all but -- those conservative groups that were mistreated.
They can get a consolation prize no it's not a washer or dryer it's a check for 1000 dollars.
Welcome everybody I'm Charles made -- for Neil Cavuto in the IRS is what the new plan to deal with the growing scandal a watchdog.
At the agency is actually called for the IRS to -- targeted groups 1000 dollars a threat they call it.
An apology payment.
-- Tea Party is any repeat.
And the -- -- -- it's an insult.
And anyone wanna point out that your group actually was targeted -- there -- IRS so I would imagine that pretty happy with this.
Well you know what -- Guess what they -- -- Charles says it's not about the -- it has nothing to do with the money if they offered us 100000 dollars and never to be audited by the ARRIS again.
I still wouldn't take it are they trying to bribe -- and to silence.
It's about freedom and liberty and free -- freedom of speech it's not about money.
It's about that overreach of the federal government.
Into the lives as individuals who have the right.
To express their views just like anybody else that's.
Yeah but does -- did then it would seem to mean that.
By the making this offer it's a step toward at least acknowledging or admitting that something was wrong here that they did something that was reprehensible.
Maybe -- -- a thousand dollars reprehensible release a step in the right direction.
That's -- seems kind of silly that they're going to give us a thousand dollars of our own money it's our own money that's just that they have -- they abused their authority and this agency I would honestly you know -- I would I would I would think that this could be.
All resolved is -- slowest learners fired if you have Grossman fired all of these individuals who are on taxpayer funded vacations I mean administrative leave.
If -- -- and in fact go a step further let's just abolish the IRS and allow the states to handle this -- allocate the money after that that's what I think would be an excellent way.
To say it Wear sari.
I know what I love when you say that because I always find an answer saying that after major disasters states have to go hat handed -- C.
And then have to be so sickle -- -- they give back their own money to your point but but -- I do wanna say.
You do have a lawsuit did you group has filed a lawsuit against terrorists and I would imagine part of that you're trying to seek some sort of financial.
You know some sort of site -- financial gain as well.
Well it isn't just a -- sit on behalf of North County party is on behalf of all conservative groups that were targeted by the -- asked.
This is a class action lawsuit.
That will represent all of the groups many of the groups folded after they asked many of the groups couldn't do any kind of fundraising.
They lost king cam and I it's it's just to make right the wrong that the higher as stead.
So this is something that is being filed and -- and it was filed in Cincinnati and it represents.
The little people that little groups the groups it couldn't survive.
This attack by the -- air -- on to them and for that ridiculous amount and burden of information that they were demanding from all of us some most of that.
Within the framework of the 501 sees that we were after or constitutionally.
You know did that then I met you today oddly enough have some sort of an ally with the person that made this offer -- also and she runs a national taxpayer advocate.
And she's the one who came over this apology pain in the -- back in 2007 she saw.
Where things were were were were not right and she went to the RS she -- to others in the in the within the organization.
And they told her that she -- have the authority to intervene some.
Maybe this is the way for someone within that umbrella this big -- -- bureaucratic you know structure to at least put this on -- table the word apology.
And in to me that leads that might be a step in the right direction I know -- a million miles away from what you guys want but just hear the word apology acknowledges that something wrong was done.
-- completely but I I I'm still gonna refuse to accept -- at least for speaking for me personally I travel all around the country.
I've met with a number of different organizers we're talking about actual free speech suppression.
You're talking about groups that -- I'm able to get together and assemble.
And speak freely because a lot of cities in my hometown of Saint Louis -- -- is going to get together to put on a demonstration you have to take out a million dollar liability insurance policy.
You have to provide Porta Johns you have to hire extra police officers for security that's a lot for one or two people to flood in terms of billing.
So when you have the IRS which is essentially squelching the free speech and assembly of groups because it's.
It's intervene and prevent an improved from.
From collecting -- to go -- says that's a huge problem I just wanna see it abolished I'm done with that I'm I'm done with.
With flirting around dancing around in fact next April I think everybody should play the theft.
Today let's and that will be a wonderful thing before I let two guys -- we only have a few seconds to -- Are you happy with the direction that did it in Capitol Hill that this is going -- feel like.
We're chipping away you know behind the veil of I don't knows and the -- and all that stuff do you think we're gonna get some answers.
You know it's really difficult to say Charles because I think we have to remember it's great that the congress has come to the party now.
Bank remember that congress was started by the higher -- it's funded by the ire -- -- it's overseen by the higher I mean congress oversees the higher assets funded them and started in earnest.
And so you know it I just wonder how far they will -- finance and I do believe that it's apt to -- the people.
To CTO at that justice is served with a higher SN and I'm on with Dana let's just get rid of the -- -- it's an overreaching unconstitutional.
Piece of the federal government -- way people.
That -- -- sad thing about this Charles is that so many.
People from our group have contacted me and say -- now what Jenny.
I can't can't donate -- -- anymore and I can't -- anymore your meetings because I'm afraid the IRS is gonna come after me that's teary.
Dexterity and by the way that was probably the ultimate goal into both of your points.
This is only supposed to be temporary this whole tax thing in the -- Wright thing and voluntary.
About a hundred years past due date so right I want to save pages you've got -- -- -- fantastic cannot keep up the fight we appreciate it.
