    Using the tax code to play political favorites, why am I not surprised?

    The ObamaCare Legislation authorized the hiring of thousands more regulators to fan out across the US in search of more money.

    This is the result.

    My question is how are groups like NOW, PETA, NAACP, ect not considered political groups? What a crock of crap. Again more liberals attacking conservatives through a round about way. I would love to see this applies to aforementioned groups. Democrats would squeal like a pig!!!

    We should not be subsidizing any political organization that keeps it's donors secret.

    I agree. Time for NARAL and the Open Society Institute to operate without government funds.

    How are the superpacs subsidized?

    I am going to enjoy this.

    1. We are not subsidizing them.
    2. They disclose their donors.
    3. They train women who want to run as Democratic candidates.
    That makes you a total failure because you

    1. Assume that tax exempt status means we send them money.
    2. Didn't bother to read the article.
    3. Hate women and Democrats.
    Great post.
