Turns out the IRS scandal is a put-on.
Internal IRS documents show that tea party groups weren’t the only nonprofits flagged for review. Groups with “progressive” or “occupy” in their names were on the same list.

We have a choice.
Either we waste the next three years in a defensive crouch or we force our issues back into the national debate.
If you believe that Congress should focus not on fake partisan scandals but on jobs, fair pay, repealing the sequester and protecting Social Security, make a contribution to the Campaign for America’s Future.
We are up against very well-financed opponents who only care about destroying the president.
We don’t always win, but with your help, we always show up and we never back down.
