Harry Reid and the Chamber of Horrors

You can’t take your eyes off these devious swine for a second:

A new bill passed by the Democrat controlled Senate and now headed to the House would give the IRS broad new powers that watchdogs say include revoking gun rights and passports.

The bill, S.1813, is a reauthorization of the federal highway aid, safety, and construction program. But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, and Senator Barbara Boxer, D-CA, added a major provision to the bill regarding the IRS.

The two Senators apparently want the IRS to have the power to revoke the gun rights of citizens and their right to travel if they owe more than $50,000 in back taxes.

But the problem is that the IRS would not be required to prove that a citizen owes $50,000. All it would take is for the IRS to accuse a citizen of owing that amount.  Watchdogs say IRS to revoke gun rights and passports

Just this one provision of the Desert Rat’s—which, of course, has nothing whatsoever to do with federal highways—would seem to violate at least half of the protections guaranteed by the Bill of Rights, but what the heck, that’s never stopped the Democrats before.  As San Fran Nan herself once said regarding Constitutional limits to Congressional authority:

“Are you kidding? Are you kidding?”

  1. I am really beginning to hate politicians. If the House Republicans stop this bill, Obama will be crying to the media that those evil Republicans don’t care about our highways being in disrepair.

  5. Any way to get at the guns, even if it;s a few people at a time.

    I think this is the same bill that has the Keystone Pipeline approval in it? If so, the GOP sold their soul for it. But then would Obama veto this if he could get these goodies?

  7. AFVET says:

    According to the Glenn Beck show this morning, the NRA has looked into the bill and are not ‘concerned’ about the gun ownership issue.
    However, the way these bills are written, who knows ?
