Here, this should get your blood boiling. Hat tip to @Tim who just drew my attention to this article at Politico.
I am just stunned by the chutz·pah of this Democrat to try and deflect political fallout on the Dems.
We need some Brockers to weigh in.
I am beginning to think this IRS scandal which broke Friday has some legs. It was above the fold on the front pages of two local Bellingham papers today. I think we can use this attention to tell a broader story of IRS misdirected energies and persecution of American’s abroad with their OVDPs and FATCA administration!
Here is my comment. Add yours.
That is just such Nonsense!!!
Nina Olson as been a GREAT advocate for Taxpayers, and her reports to Congress constantly point out what the IRS is doing wrong, and they just ignore her.
As a by product of Congressional inaction on her reports, the IRS management ignores her too.
Let me give you an example. She has filed a TAD, (TAX Advocate Directive) on the IRS 2009 OVDP “Bait and Switch” in the IRS voluntary disclosure programs for offshore accounts, only to be stonewalled by Commissioner Shulman and ignored.
The Commissioner refused to respond publicly as required and refused to rescind their secret suspension of the famous FAQ 35. That had serious impacts on many non-willful offenders of the FBAR rules that the IRS hadn’t even bothered to put in their own publication 54 prior to that time.
She even reported on this in her Report to Congress and THEY, meaning KERRY, did absolutely NOTHING!!! ZERO, NADA
See MPS 12, from 2011 report to Congress
This is just Kerrey, covering his and fellow Democrat asses, while trying to deflect attention from their own failure to read her reports and act on her recommendations.
He also doesn’t want you to know of his own complicity in voting for FATCA and allowing the IRS to continue its offshore jihad against Americans living abroad by applying Draconian penalties and generalized punishment for ALL Americans Abroad, for the sins of Homeland offshore tax evaders!
