AFFT Calls on Congress to Eliminate IRS Targeting by Enacting the Fair Tax
HOUSTON, May 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Americans For Fair Taxation® (AFFT), outraged by the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) continued political abuse and intimidation of citizens and organizations, is calling on Congress to immediately enact HR 25 / S 122, the FairTax® Act of 2013 and phase out the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). “No person or group is safe from IRS targeting; everyone is a bull’s eye,” said AFFT spokesperson Cynthia T. Canevaro.
She added, “The agency, with over 90,000 employees and an annual budget in excess of $12 billion, has historically been the ultimate tool of extreme political manipulation by politicians of both major parties. That’s exactly what our Founding Fathers feared.”
“These types of abuses of are nothing new,” said Dan Mastromarco, tax attorney and co-author of HR 25 / S 122. He added, “In 1819, Former Chief Justice John Marshall warned in McCulloch v. Maryland that, ‘An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, a power to destroy.’ The FairTax Act is the only way in which Congress can once and for all eliminate the harassment, political exploitation and selective enforcement against perceived dissidents. It levels the playing field and redistributes power to the citizens who pay the taxes.” . . . Read Complete Press Release
