Watchdog: Obama ‘Potentially’ Hip Deep In IRS Scandal
2,500 new documents ID’d in White House-IRS taxpayer harassment cases
(Washington Examiner) - In a shocking revelation, the Treasury Inspector General has identified some 2,500 documents that “potentially” show taxpayer information held by the Internal Revenue Service being shared with President Obama’s White House.
The discovery was revealed to the group Cause of Action, which has sued for access to any of the documents. It charges that the IRS and White House have harassed taxpayers.
In an email from the Justice Department’s tax office, an official revealed the high number of documents, suggesting that the White House was hip deep in probes of taxpayers, likely including conservatives and Tea Party groups associated with the IRS scandal.
In requesting a delay in the delivery date of the documents, Justice told Cause of Action, “The agency [Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration] has located 2,500 potentially responsive documents and anticipates being able to finish processing 2,000 of these pages by the December 1 date. It needs the additional two weeks to deal with the last 500 pages to determine if they are responsive and make any necessary withholdings.”
Cause of Action, which calls itself “Advocates for Government Accountability,” wasn’t surprised by the number of documents. It had filed suit to win access to them and a federal judge shot down Treasury’s earlier bid to hide the documents...(MORE)
Dick Morris: Obama Amnesty to Cause Massive Layoffs
(Newsmax) – President Barack Obama’s amnesty for illegal immigrants will produce a disaster of unparalleled magnitude when the Obamacare employer mandate kicks in.
Those granted amnesty will not be eligible for Obamacare. The amnesty will merely keep them safe from deportation; it won’t make them legal. And Obamacare can only go to citizens and legal noncitizens living in the U.S.
But the employer mandate in Obamacare requires large companies to offer insurance to each of their full-time workers or pay a hefty fine to the government for failing to do so.
Combine these two programs and you have a huge incentive for employers to dismiss any blue-collar workers on their payroll and replace them with illegal immigrants covered by amnesty. These folks are allowed to work but not to get Obamacare. An employer can’t be fined for failing to offer Obamacare to employees who are ineligible to receive it. It’s an employer’s dream!
Some argue that the anti-discrimination provisions of Obamacare will bar employers from offering insurance to some of their workers (citizens and legal immigrants) and not to others (illegal immigrants). But that argument seems far-fetched, because the illegal immigrants cannot enroll in Obamacare...(MORE)
