I'm really interested to see what happens to the IRS on this. My guess is that the IRS, a government powerhouse, isn't going to be interested is giving money to groups that advocate smaller government and fewer taxes.

Actually it depends on the group. They do want lower taxes, they believe that lowering the taxes will give the incentive for people to work harder. You aren't wrong on certain groups though, they just want something new to complain about and they were just on the "new bandwagon" at the time.

first, they were forced to be classified as non profit, they did not want it.
second if this was liberal groups being harassed obama would have said something by now. not obama's fault, but would he have commented on it if it was a group from his side?

I listened to an interview yesterday about this. they are saying when they applied for a 503a, they were forced by the IRS to take the 503c (could have those numbers wrong)
