PowerSlacker: Why the hell would the IRS audit anyone under 25k?
jbc: PowerSlacker: Why the hell would the IRS audit anyone under 25k?To see if they actually made less than $25K. Duh.
PowerSlacker: jbc: PowerSlacker: Why the hell would the IRS audit anyone under 25k?To see if they actually made less than $25K. Duh.Is it worth the cost of the audit though?Go after the bigger fish.
ecmoRandomNumbers: The worst part was seeing how that money was spent immediately not on the kids, but on TVs, party dresses ($2,000 dresses, FFS!), and other assorted crap.
Satanic_Hamster: PowerSlacker: Why the hell would the IRS audit anyone under 25k?So people should be free to rip of the government / cheat on their taxes if they claim to be poor?
bdub77: The second part of the scandal is the auditing of political activists who have opposed the administration," the Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan wrote on Thursday, describing the I.R.S.'s actions as the "worst Washington scandal since Watergate."Did she not get the Republican talking point that Fast and Furious was worse than Watergate, which pales in comparison to Benghazi which is 10 times worse than Watergate and Iran Contra combined?You're slipping, Peggy.
bdub77: Just for the record, so I have my GOP math straight:W =WatergateC = Iran ContraS = SolyndraF = Fast and FuriousI = IRS Flagging Possible Tax EvadersB = BenghaziC < I < W < S < F < (I+C)*10 < B
netweavr: Yeah, he even says as much:To be clear, this calculation assumes that individuals' risk of being audited is independent of their political views. In fact, there is no way to know exactly how many supporters of each candidate were chosen for an audit - nor could there be, since individual-level voting records and audit records are private.

olomana: Dr. Sherz was my son's urologist until he started handing out anti obama care literature. He also headed some similar movement of doctors against obamacare. It's funny that he's a urologist and such a prick. One has to wonder why a rich dr. is against what amounts to weak insurance reform. I hope his audit was costly and painful.
Captain Dan: If the IRS actually did target individuals for audits because of their political beliefs, it would be a Watergate-level scandal. But that didn't happen, so it's not.I don't share his liberal beliefs, but I'd take Nate Silver over most people who do agree with me politically. He's smart, empirical, conscientious, and a champion in the fight against irrationality.
netweavr: Reading through the article, it looks like Nate Silver is assuming what he's trying to prove when he estimates who people voted for...
SN1987a goes boom: Nate Silver is bringing down the mathematical BOOM on y'all!

voran: I like Mr. Silver's casual link of "Remember how she thought she knew what she was talking about during the election? How did that turn out?"
theknuckler_33: smitty04: [fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net image 384x395]Starting to regret being so adamantly opposed to single-payer, eh? I understand, sucks having the conservative Heritage Foundation plan being implemented, doesn't it?
