The firestorm continues around the Internal Revenue Service‘s alleged politically-motivated manipulation of non-profit organizations’ applications for tax-exempt status. Now ABC News reports the career-bureaucrat who ran the IRS’s tax-exempt organizations division has been promoted, and now heads its Affordable Care Act division, where most of private citizens’ medical and financial information will pour, as “Obamacare” is implemented and government’s intimidating powers are alarmingly expanded.
Add to these revelations a letter sent to the White House by Franklin Graham, asserting that the IRS is improperly targeting religious charities for investigation, including the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the global relief agency, Samaritan’s Purse. Mr. Graham’s complaint is one of similar allegations by churches and charitable organizations. May God help us!
