    No one seems to understand this isn't just about fairness its about the IRS doing its duty to investigate those seeking tax exempt status who meet certain criteria.

    Its really hard to swallow that The Tea Party is primarily concerned with social welfare given its past behavior.
    I remember Ron Paul on stage discussing health care
    with the crowd cheering "Let him die" in reference to
    man who had no health care and become ill. How
    quickly we forget.

    Congress itself determines the criteria not the IRS.
    The criteria is very loosely worded and could use some
    firming up.

    Its seems the right is being very successful at playing its little game of "outrage theater" and getting the left all worked up over nothing.

    There is more to this story than meets the eye.
    Please check out Lawrence O'Donnell's LAST WORD for
    a greater understanding of the criteria the IRS is working with.
