The IRS has no business in the private lives of Americans. That was the message sent this week by Congressman John Carter (R-TX31) and the House of Representatives, who passed 12 bills that will place restrictions on the IRS and other government agencies as part of Stop Government Abuse Week.
"This culture of cover-ups has to be stopped. We cannot allow government agencies like the IRS to illicitly probe into the lives of Americans. Our constitution is set up to prevent such government intrusion but it is clear this administration has no regard for the constitution," said Congressman Carter, Chairman of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee. "This I why I have voted for legislation this week that will help regulate, investigate and stop these intrusions. I will not stand-down from this fight. My constituents will not be intimidated or bullied. My colleagues in the House and I will continue to fight to get answers and hold this administration accountable."
