The Internal Revenue Service should not have the power to unfairly target specific individuals or groups. That is why I sponsored a new piece of legislation – H.R. 4903 – which holds the IRS accountable and prevents them from infringing upon our First Amendment rights. The IRS must follow the foundation laid out by our Constitution, just as the rest of us are expected to do the same.
My bill was unanimously passed by the House on Tuesday, April 19, 2016. This bill defunds IRS departments that are responsible for targeting political groups. I will never stop fighting to end the IRS’ abuse of power on the American people.
