    Guess what else is in the bailout bill?<br>
    Downsize DC<br>

    "Do you think the IRS should set up undercover operations to entrap
    unsuspecting taxpayers? Do you think the IRS should release your
    confidential tax returns to law enforcement and intelligence agencies
    upon request? If you answered 'No!' to either question, you're out of
    luck. Before its October recess, Congress passed a bill giving the IRS
    these powers. You may ask, 'Why didn't Downsize DC oppose this bill?'
    As a matter of fact, we wrote against it virtually non-stop for two
    weeks! Don't remember? That's understandable. These provisions are
    buried in Sections 401 and 402 of Division C in H.R. 1424, the Bailout
    bill." (11/10/08)<br>

    LE agencies have been obtaining info from the IRS as far back as I can remember in my LE career.

    Nothing is personal, nothing is sacred....just a mere fact of life in the U.S.
