Granted, virtually everyone understands the broad strokes of what happened at the IRS over the last few years, yet Democrats keep dredging up false equivalencies — so it’s useful to trumpet additional data like this. Via NPR:


A House Ways and Means Committee staff analysis of the applications of 111 conservative and progressive groups applying for tax exempt status found conservative applicants faced, “more questions, more denials, more delays,” says committee Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich. That is, when the IRS sent groups letters asking for further information, conservative groups were asked more questions — on average, three times more. All of the groups with “progressive” in their name were ultimately approved, while only 46 percent of conservative groups won approval. Others are still waiting for an answer or gave up.​

Right-leaning groups were asked triple the number of questions (like this, and this), and ended up getting shot down more than half the time. Lefty organizations skated by with fewer inquiries and were all approved. Let’s examine the raw numbers:

Of course the fact that The New York Slimes has been known to skew the truth has no bearing on this. Just as other Progressive Left wing organizations have been know to edit and skew their findings.
Oh god here we go. If someone refutes your "facts" then just claim "oh no that a lie"! :roll: Typical ****.

Okay. Give us your extolling view on how objective the New York Times is when it comes to Obama and Progressive positions.
