    As much as the rich are crying "class warfare" they don't seem to realize that it does exist, and the victims are the poor.

    It is not class warfare. The deeper in debt this country goes the more events like this will occur.

    They (the IRS) are doing what they have always done. They go after people who do not declare enough income to support their ostensible standard of living.

    See, I have no tall poppy envy of the rich, if you are smart or lucky, good on you.

    But when the whine about paying taxes and claim it is class warfare, I mean really now, grow up.

    If it's money they are looking for, why are they auditing the one's who don't have any?

    Perhaps you should read for comprehension? They audit her because her life style exceeds the amount of income she claims. THAT is the criteria for the IRS to audit people.

    Yeah, and it's strange too because NORMALLY the IRS doesn't even BOTHER with people making such little money.

    They know they'll probably spend more money auditing the person than they'll end up getting if they somehow uncover money that's owed.

    This is like when the Labor Dept. in NJ recently came around to various job sites and starting demanding that employers open up their books and show paperwork for all their employees. I've never seen that happen before until now.

    Governments all over are pulling out all the stops and doing whatever they can to gain revenue.
