Ben Carson Had His ‘First Encounter With the IRS’ After His Viral Prayer Breakfast Speech
Dr. Ben Carson reportedly had his “first encounter with the IRS” after his viral speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in February, the accomplished neurosurgeon revealed at a Monday night event with business leaders and elected officials in Alabama.

While Carson stopped short of accusing the IRS of targeting him because he openly criticized policies implemented by President Barack Obama or due to his outspoken conservative views, he did note that the tax agency’s visit wasn’t very surprising.
“I had my first encounter with the IRS this year, unsurprisingly after the Prayer Breakfast,” he said at the annual Business Council of Alabama Chairman’s Dinner.
Carson had managed to avoid gaining the attention of the IRS prior to his now-famous speech.
“Dr. Carson’s speech at the prayer breakfast went viral, in large part, because his criticisms of the public policy coming out of Washington happened with President Obama sitting only a few feet away,” the Washington Post reports.

Just 91%... :cold:

Really tells you who's essential, doesn't it?

Meanwhile, the remaining 9% of IRS workers on duty are dilligently shredding records related to the denial of tax exempt status for conservative groups.

You know how if your cable goes off for a day or two, the cable company will pro-rate your bill and not bill you for those days (if you call them and get in their face about it)?

I feel that as long as government services are in a partial shut-down status, I should only have to pay that same percentage of my usual tax rate that the federal government's operation status is. Not counting Social Security, just the basic federal tax that gets taken out of my check.

91%? I'll bet they used an old government gimmick of furloughing most of those new positions (unfilled yet) for monitoring Obamascare. It's all eyewash to impress the low information voters.

That's a valid point. If we are not getting all of the government that we pay for (actually, we get more, thanks to the borrowing), we ought to get pro-rated returns.

I think that conservatives accross the land should be dancing in the streets!!

DANCING IN THE STREETS!!

We have limited government with all the agencys cut back and shut down!
Can we keep it?

Celebrate good times. COME ON!!

This could be a good time for the house to disassemble the big government
tyranny we have one piece at a time.

Send the one item bills to the Senate one at a time and let the Democratic Party
become the Party of NO.
