Another IRS Employee Pleads the 5th

I truly hope this is adding to the fire to do a total reformation of the tax code. Abolish the IRS and go to a Fair or Flat tax.

Wasnt there a recent Supreme

Wasnt there a recent Supreme Court decision that pleading the 5th constitutes guilt?


with OP below: all taxation is unethically premised on anti-voluntary coercion and should be abolished; it is also unprincipled by presupposing that no citizen can act conscientiously and civilly endow to institutions of public value; finally it is insolvent by stealing from the private domain and distorting the public fiduciary

Absolutely. We must abolish


We must abolish the IRS, it destroys people's lives and they're virtually unaccountable. I'm fine if we replace it with a flat or sales tax, even though I don't want either. Those would be much less egregious or destructive. I did not say entirely non-destructive, just much less destructive than the mobsters of the IRS.


Bureaucrats are sickening. Is anyone held accountable for their actions anymore?

Hearing this for a 2nd time should make one plead for a 5th.

That public employees are pleading the 5th is no different than any common criminal doing the same thing. There must be no difference between them.

Bumping the right hand back into view

while everyone is distracted by the Snowden left hand.

this is about the gathering

this is about the gathering of information on the IRS, the IRS can not plead the fith.....corporations, and certainly not governing bodies created out of the scope of the constitution, and as some would say, by fashion, out of its reach.......they are not PEOPLE, and that sentiment, no matter how much they try to "champion" the opposite view, will ever, ever change

NOT just the IRS

Fair tax or flat tax?!? LOL

The ONLY tax that's fair is NO TAX!!! The US government functioned just fine without any taxes for a long, long time.
RP1fan, do you have any idea where your federal tax money actually, really goes? Exactly zero goes to the government!! It is the interest payment that the treasury dept. owes to the Fed. Reserve!
By the way, I do recall a statistic from years ago that our annual military budget was the same figure as the corporate taxes collected.

Dramatic death defying action testimony w/ audio & video.

June, 2013. 2 minute newsreel taped as it occurred, recording every breath-taking utterance, before a shunned gallery. Nary a whimper. Stark contrast to the whimper Congressional testimony swearing to "tell the truth. Whole truth. Nothing but the truth. The first witness, immediately after swearing oath to tell the aforementioned barely whimpered his name & IRS position title... Consulting his counsel before each utterance.
