IRS Joins GOP's "War On Those People"

When I posted the other day regarding David Sirota's exposure of the IRS, I missed this from USA Today:

The IRS has frozen refunds for hundreds of thousands of low-income taxpayers without telling them they're being investigated for tax fraud or giving them a chance to defend themselves, the IRS taxpayer advocate said Tuesday.

In a blistering report to Congress, Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olson said complaints about unpaid tax refunds have soared more than 400% since 2002. Sixty-six percent of those who complained were entitled to a full refund, an investigation by her office found. An additional 14% were determined to be eligible for a partial refund, Olson says.


Granted, the above picuture may be agitprop in the context of Islamic terrorism but, in the minds of a your typical rightwing, Bible-thumping, Freeper/Green Footballing rube, there's very few degrees of seperation between the "them" in that picture and the "those kind" of New Orleans.

I read that It is crucial that you repay a payday loan as soon as possible. Many people get into trouble with these types of loans when they are unable to quickly repay the debt.I read this on Faxless Payday Loan Thanks !

Your credit limit is determined based on your credit history and your income. I saw this on American Express Credit Card is it true ?
