-- Tea Party protesters storming Capitol Hill thousands of angry taxpayers railing against the IRS and you Obama administration in firing up the crowd of today's rally Republican senator and likely.
But we worked together.
We can form a movement a powerful movement that in 2014.
Will make 2010.
Looked like a Sunday picnic for the Democrats.
Ceremony is also the author of the brand new book why John Roberts was wrong about health care he joins us.
And -- take you will be invited Supreme Court soon for wrecked.
Lunch for the Chief Justice not soon at least not counting on a night Kelly I didn't things are the IRS.
-- abandon our bonds should.
I'd love to see is get rid of it obviously we have to have a revenue collection agency and that's the function it serves.
But the iris has gotten too big and too powerful because we have a tax code it takes up tens of thousands of pages.
That makes these people enormously powerful and that's a problem.
When nobody I -- the truth is -- accept that there's at one member of congress house or senate.
Who can do his own taxes.
It -- a complex -- attacks on the back and fact that many of them have been but for years working might have -- come from other sources or they have complicated finances no one does his -- taxes more.
It's not just one member of congress we recently had in front of Mike for -- committee's.
A gentleman who has a Ph.D.
in the US taxation system I asked him.
Do you do your taxes he says no I said why and he said well there's no way I can be certain I was getting it right -- no way.
Do some people.
Politically and demonize the Tea Party event of the -- some massive prison break it wide of why some people demonized and the -- part of what I got against them.
They're afraid of a movement that is as popular as this one.
It says that Washington's become too big and too expensive because it's been ignoring the constitution that scares them to death liberals hate it.
That's why the IRS has been targeting the tea party for years.
What do famous and the turnout today what about the thousands 2000 town known for so it's probably more like 20/20 5000.
What what about the enthusiasm.
In the house of the senate for the Tea Party.
Just that -- Nino or they try to put those Republican part trying to put a -- so that they can control the more what what's your reaction.
Don't look up -- the Tea Party first of all isn't a monolithic organization is not any one organization it's it's a grassroots political phenomenon.
Most of the people who've been elected to congress as Republicans in the last.
For years have been elected with Tea Party support with the support of this big movement and so it's it's on the increase it is by no means diminishing.
What is going to happen.
The ask us -- -- Well I think we are gonna continue to see a lot of calls for reform I think we're gonna see a lot of reform efforts -- to gain momentum.
As a result of the fact that people don't -- the IRS they can't trust the IRS because our tax code is too complicated it's too long and that makes.
The IRS agents too powerful so just gonna happen -- about this for years we both right and the left say that the tax code has to be reform rioted every single from every from all sides.
And it just doesn't happen what's the problem.
Another problem is there are too many people who benefit from a too much they're big corporate interest to benefit from a because.
If you're a big company -- you can afford to employ an army of tax lawyers to protect you.
It's competitive advantage it's a restriction on entry makes it harder for somebody else to come along to compete with you.
And so we know that that's one of the reasons why it's hard to do.
But the thing is that enough people are realizing how bad this is enough people -- gonna start to demand it.
Sooner or later it's gonna happen I can't give -- an exact time.
Framed for that but it is going to happen I don't think maybe by two hat and my guess is with a seven million dollars in bonuses -- -- -- to be rolled off the IRS.
-- wasn't such a good idea on their part especially at a time when this is an agency that has not been behaving well.
And I I don't think that people are going to take kindly to that -- it's yet another reason why we need to either abolish the IRS.
-- diminish its size in importance to the point where he it won't really resemble what it is right.
Now -- is actually sounded nobody blew the whistle on on the on the targeting internally no blow the whistle on the parties for fifty million dollars nobody blew the whistle and also know -- Now there's no outcry from within about the bonus -- up to the last word on that senator nice to see except.
