Big Surprise! RINO-Infested GOP Chooses RINO Kevin McCarthy To Be Next House Majority Leader

Kevin McCarthy Elected House Majority Leader – Big Government

.

.
The House GOP conference elected Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) Thursday afternoon to be their leader, once current Majority Leader Eric Cantor – who was unexpectedly defeated in his primary last week by a relative unknown – steps down in late July.

McCarthy overcame a late challenge from Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID), a Tea Party congressman from the more conservative wing of the party, after Financial Services Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) balked at running for the position and Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX) dropped out last week.

The California congressman is currently majority whip, the third most powerful House Republican, elected to the position by his peers in 2010. He was first elected to Congress in 2006.

McCarthy, who hails from a blue state, has put a premium on fiscal and economic issues but is seen by some as not sufficiently conservative.

“Since gaining control of the House in November 2010, Kevin and his Republican colleagues have blocked the largest tax increase in American history, cut out-of-control government spending by historic levels and passed numerous pieces of legislation that will help create jobs in America,” his official biography boasts.

McCarthy – viewed by many as another establishment Republican – has a current Heritage Action rating of 42 percent and a lifetime 50 percent (compared to Labrador’s 77 percent and 82 percent respectively) and a 2013 72 percent rating from the American Conservative Union and a 90.4 percent lifetime rating (compared to Labrador’s 100 percent and 97.2 percent respectively).

The California Republican in recent months raised the eyebrows of anti-amnesty advocates with his co-sponsorship of the ENLIST Act, which would have provided a pathway to citizenship for certain undocumented youth who serve in the military.

Both McCarthy and Labrador are seen as soft on amnesty.

Numbers USA, an immigration reduction group, gave McCarthy an “F-,” compared to Labrador’s “C+,” this Congress. McCarthy’s low score this year, however, appears to be largely due to his co-sponsorship of the ENLIST Act. Overall, McCarthy’s lifetime rating is an “A” (compared to Labrador’s “B”).

Ironically, many political pundits have speculated that Cantor lost his Virginia primary election due to squishiness on amnesty.

Not Even A Smidgen Of Corruption: Lois Lerner Will Not Testify Without Immunity Or Court Order – Gateway Pundit

Barack Obama told Bill O’Reilly there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” in the IRS targeting scandal.

.

.
Then explain this…

The attorney for Lois Lerner will not testify next week in front of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform without immunity or a court order.

FOX News reported:

The attorney for Lois Lerner, a central figure in the IRS scandal, said Wednesday his client will not comply with a request to return to Capitol Hill next week to testify.

Attorney William Taylor said Lerner, who resigned last year as the agency’s tax-exempt organizations chief, will return only if compelled by a federal court or if given immunity for her testimony.

Taylor stated his position in a letter to Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. He was responding to a letter Tuesday from Issa saying, in part, that Lerner’s testimony remains “critical to the committee’s investigation.”

The committee continues to investigate the IRS’ targeting of Tea Party groups and other conservative organizations trying to get tax-exempt status.

Issa and Lerner’s attorneys continue to argue about whether she is protected under the Fifth Amendment from having to testify.

Last year, Lerner invoked the Fifth Amendment right during her first-and-only appearance before the committee, but only after she professed her innocence during an opening statement.

“We understand that the committee voted she had waived her rights,” Taylor wrote Issa. “We continue to respectfully disagree.”

Reining In The IRS – National Review

A comprehensive tax-reform plan House Republicans will unveil this morning takes dead aim at what Republicans perceive to be the IRS’s persistent abuse of its authority. According to Republican aides familiar with the plan, it will curb the power of the nation’s tax-collecting agency, something Republicans have attempted to do since the agency admitted to improperly singling out conservative non-profit groups last May.

The legislation, authored by Ways and Means Committee chairman Dave Camp (R., Mich.), introduces reforms that directly address the circumstances that led to last year’s scandal. The specter of Lois Lerner looms large in the minds of many Republicans, and the plan mandates the termination of any IRS employee found to have taken official action for political purposes. The 1988 bill that restructured and reformed the IRS spells out ten actions for which the IRS commissioner must terminate an agency employee after an “administrative or judicial determination” that the employee has committed the prohibited action – among them, providing a false statement under oath on a matter involving a taxpayer and violating the rights of a taxpayer. Today’s bill would add the commission of politically motivated acts to the list.

The plan would also require the IRS to modify its interpretation of a critical provision of the Internal Revenue Code that has been used to protect the privacy of those accused of leaking confidential taxpayer records and to deny information to the victims of IRS abuse.

Under the proposed reforms, the provision, Internal Revenue Code section 6103, would require the government to disclose to victims both the status of an investigation as well as its result, including the identity of the perpetrator.

As currently interpreted, section 6103 prohibits congressional committees or inspectors general from identifying a government employee who has leaked confidential taxpayer information. It even prohibits inspectors general from confirming or denying whether they have conducted an investigation. Disclosing tax returns to the public is a felony, but the results of investigations conducted by congressional committees or inspectors general are considered the confidential tax information of the perpetrator and so, in an ironic twist, perpetrators are currently protected by the very law they violated.

As Republicans, including Camp, have investigated the IRS targeting scandal, they have run head first into the restrictive nature of the 6103 provisions. “The law, intended to protect taxpayers, is being used as a shield for those who perpetrate this wrongdoing,” Camp told National Review Online in October.

The National Organization for Marriage, a conservative organization that had its donor list leaked by the IRS, has filed suit against the agency after it was unable to get answers from the government. Camp’s Ways and Means Committee, which investigated the leak, was prohibited from releasing the findings of its investigation, which concluded in October. In court, according to NOM’s attorneys, the IRS has admitted to disclosing the document but maintains that the disclosure was “inadvertent.” The case is in discovery phase and a trial is expected in April or May.

Camp and his Republican colleagues are also tackling the IRS’s proposed regulations for social-welfare groups, which have rankled groups on both the left and the right. The plan proposes to delay the rules, which would curb the political activity of 501(c)(4) groups, for one year. Camp has proposed a bill in the House that does just that, and Senate Republicans have done the same, but the bills have yet to come up for a vote.

501(c)(4) groups must promote social welfare and, by law, can’t “primarily” engage in political activity. The rules proposed by the agency in November, which have garnered over 70,000 (mostly critical) public comments, would classify such activities as voter-registration drives and the production of voter guides as political activity that does not count toward an organization’s primary purpose, essentially limiting the amount of political activity groups can engage in. Camp has charged that the rules were “reverse engineered” by the IRS in an attempt to codify the targeting of tea-party groups that it was previously performing behind the scenes.

The proposed rules have ignited a firestorm on the right, and, on the left, groups including the American Civil Liberties Union and the Service Employees International Union have spoken out against them. even as Democratic senators urge the agency to codify them in advance of the midterm elections.

The forthcoming legislation would also introduce an additional layer of oversight onto the IRS, directing the Government Accountability Office to review each of the agency’s operating divisions in order to determine that they are properly screening cases. The GAO would conduct follow-up reviews every four years.

Small Business Owner Blasts Obama In New Video From House Majority Whip

Small Business Owner Blasts Obama In New Video From House Majority Whip – Human Events

Ohio small business owner Armie Kaufman says “that tax money comes from the business, there’s no other way to get it, and either you pay taxes with it or you use it to expand the business, ” in a video released this morning via YouTube by House Majority Whip Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).

The new video critical of President Obama’s proposed tax plan, that would see thousands of small business owners hit with tax hikes, follows the story of Arnie Kaufman, President of Woodhill Supply Inc., an Ohio based pipe manufacturer, was released Tuesday morning.

.

.
Kaufman, according to the statement release by Rep. McCarthy and citing the National Federation of Independent Business, is one of the 940,000 small business owners that will see an increase in their tax burden if the President was to follow through on his proposal.

The statement also included a recent report by Ernst and Young that further argues the negative effects the President’s plan would have on the struggling economy, specifically, “710,000 fewer jobs and economic output reduced by 1.3 percent in 2013.”

In response, McCarthy plans to lead House Republicans in “Stop the Tax Hike Day”, which is meant to be “a day of district focused events drawing greater attention to the fact that the President’s tax hike plan would put the brakes on what is already anemic economic and jobs growth.”

But, with the August recess looming, House Republicans must work quickly if they plan to vote on extending the current tax rates, which they say they plan to do for another full year “to ensure greater economic certainty for hardworking American families and small businesses during this tough economic time.”
