The time has come to abolish the Internal Revenue Service as we know it. It has proven it is incapable of governing itself.
Consider recent events:
- The IRS intentionally and maliciously targeted conservative groups and leaked confidential taxpayer information to leftist allies;
- IRS officials threw lavish parties for themselves, spending millions of dollars even as Americans struggled to keep their jobs and pay their taxes;
- Pro-life and Christian groups report extreme and intrusive demands, including one reported demand that a pro-life group promise not to picket Planned Parenthood;
- The IRS conducted mass-scale audits of adoptive families, auditing 100,000 in 2011 alone, simply because those families adopted a child.
And that's just what we've learned in the last three weeks. We've sued the IRS to stop its abuse of conservative groups, but that's just a start. The American Center for Law and Justice is joining key conservative leaders with a simple demand: End the IRS.
Stand with us.
Jay Sekulow is chief counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice.
