From the blog post Sen. Cruz referenced at Hot Air:

A pro-life legal group, Alliance Defending Freedom, released audio today of a 2012 phone call between an IRS agent and the head of a Texas pregnancy counseling group. During the phone call, IRS agent Sherry Wan is heard lecturing Ania Joseph about how she can’t have a tax exemption and also push her religious beliefs— a bit of advice that would be quite interesting to every church in America.

The IRS has demonstrated that those who aren’t first and foremost members of the church of big government are going to have problems, and good on Sen. Cruz for helping shine some light on what’s under these flipped rocks.

We’ll close this out with the shudder-inducing tweet of the day:


‘Guilty as charged’: Sen. Ted Cruz seeks retweets from fellow Obamaphobes

Maybe ‘someone who took an oath to uphold it will read it’: Ted Cruz tweets the Bill of Rights

  • Clayton Grant

    When I heard the phone call from the agent, I started to wonder if the IRS had outsourced the job.

    • CatHerder

      Weird. The agent’s name looks Asian-American but durned if she didn’t sound Jamaican. To me, anyway.

  • CatHerder

    Starting to wonder about Ted, how can one man be right on so many things?


    • Michael Anderson

      Given the way things have been going the Republicans will force him out of any Presidential bid. They don’t really want to win.

    • peteee363

      how can 99 other senators be so blind?

      • Ronald Green

        It’s not that they are blind. It’s that either they don’t want to see it or, they approve of what the IRS has been doing.

    • Ben Bollman

      By being an actual conservative, not these other phonies in the RNC.

  • Michael Anderson

    This is where the momentum of this scandal needs to lead. The IRS is a little dictatorship that needs to be destroyed.

    • Jeremy

      yes indeed.

  • mickeyco

    Instead of worrying about the extinction of some rare dolphin off the coast of New Zealand, we should be worried about the extinction of Christians in the US.

    • peteee363

      well, worldwide, but charity starts at home!

    • Bathing Suit Area

      Your persecution complex amuses me.

  • Love of Country

    Ted Cruz …. he’s our man.
    If he can’t do it, no one can!
    Hey Ted, the “ayes” of Texas are with you, brother!!!

  • Squirrel!

    Go to Ted’s website & sign the petition to abolish the IRS. It’s not a mainstream idea yet but this is a start.

    • Spinmamma is his website for this

      • Squirrel!

        Oh wow! Um, no. Wth!? I just went to his senate page. Thanks, now that’s logged in my online search file with the NSA. :-)

  • RblDiver

    Amen! If there’s to be an income tax at all, _everyone_ should pay the same rate. Make it something like 5% of gross annual income. That’d eliminate all loopholes, deductions that benefit certain parties, and would make sure everyone has a stake in the gov’t rather than being pure takers.

  • Jeremy

    Don’t let up Ted take the IRS out for good.

  • Jeremy

    This is a good example of what the IRS thinks of the Tea Party


    Can we just put Cruz in charge he seems to be the only one that is looking out for us peons

  • neoface

    I agree with Sen. Cruz, let’s abolish the IRS, just go to flat tax with no loophole, not even for nonprofit. Where can we vote for this?????

  • nc

    Well, I figure I must be on the government’s S list by now, so what the heck? I signed Cruz’s petition. I love the idea of a flat tax on a postcard.

    Where is the IRS agent on the phone from? Communist China? From her accent and the personal opinion she espousing tha t could very well be. What is she doing working at the IRS? She obviously knows nothing about our laws…oh, wait…
