Our View: Udall Works Tirelessly so IRS Gets Paid

Sen. Mark Udall has demanded more paper forms so Coloradans can pay taxes.

Sen. Mark Udall has demanded more paper forms so Coloradans can pay taxes.

Congressional oversight of the IRS turns out to mean vastly different things to Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill.

House Republicans have tackled several bills to prevent the IRS from infringing on freedom of speech and targeting conservative groups for harassment.

Other bills passed by the House last week with mostly Republican support would block the revenue collection agency from asking intrusive political questions, limit audits, and prevent the agency from sharing taxpayer data.

Not to be outdone in the upper chamber, Colorado Democratic Sen. Mark Udall issued a demand on Thursday calling for the IRS to rush to the aid of his constituents in rural areas and deliver paper forms so they can pay their taxes.

“Citing the upcoming deadline for Coloradans’ to file their income tax returns, Mark Udall urged the Internal Revenue Service today to swiftly ensure it supplies rural Coloradans with ready access to paper tax forms and other essential resources,” said the statement issued by Udall’s office.

It appears that while some constituents are complaining to their elected officials that the IRS has abused its authority and unfairly targeted conservatives, Udall’s constituents “have raised concerns that the IRS has not provided their local libraries with tax forms and instructions.”

In a stern letter to the IRS, Udall demanded the issue be quickly addressed to ensure that Colorado’s senior citizens, rural residents and those lacking Internet access have the documents they need to file their returns in a timely manner.

“Filing your income taxes is already a complicated process without the IRS failing to provide paper forms to the residents of rural Colorado,” Udall said.

“The IRS needs to ensure that all Coloradans — regardless of where they live — have ready access to the same services as those living in major cities,” Udall said.

The statement from Udall’s office goes on to praise the freshman senator as “a tireless advocate for rural Coloradans.”

We can’t wait to see how Udall’s campaign takes credit for flooding the state with IRS forms.

Or hear how the senator explains to his environmentalist wife Maggie Fox his role in the murder of thousands of trees for the sake of bureaucratic paperwork.

    What about all your constituents who have been damaged by your “proud” 60th and deciding vote on Obamacare, Udall? Where is your concern for them? Why are you desperately looking for ANYTHING to divert attention away from what you’ve done?

    Hey Marky boy. The clock is ticking on your liberal behind. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.
    Udall = A useless piece of machinery.

    Why would Udall be concerned about healthcare cancellations stemming from Obamacare in Colorado?
    – He wasn’t at all concerned that he didn’t read this enormously important bill.
    – He wasn’t at all concerned that he didn’t know what was in the bill.
    – He wasn’t even concerned that Americans opposed it (Obamacare) by 62.5%; Udall just arranged a telephone town hall meeting where he and his staff pre-screened the attendees to insure he would only hear what he wanted to hear. Problem solved!
    The next step toward jamming Obamacare down our throats was parroting the talking points. Both Obama and Udall repeated these blatant lies frequently, as did many in their party.
    – We can keep our healthcare plan if we like it!
    – We can keep our doctor if we like him or her!
    – The average family healthcare premium cost will drop by $2,500 per year!
    Udall still supports Obamacare while we Coloradan’s and American’s still oppose it….and not a single Republican Party member voted for it. WHY?
    – Maybe Udall’s allegiance is to Obama and his party instead of to us Coloradan’s and American’s.
    – Maybe it’s because Udall & staff joined Harry Reid’s “bitch session” with Obama and Obama gave Udall and his staff a 75% taxpayer paid subsidy for their healthcare insurance premium because they couldn’t afford it! (Gee, Udall only makes $174,000 + per year!!)
    - But hey, Udall and his staff are looking out for us now as we approach reelection.
    He and his staff are challenging Colorado’s Division of Insurance numbers that reported 250,000 of us Coloradan’s have received healthcare insurance cancellations due to Obamacare. After that challenge, upon further review, that number was increased to 335,000 cancellations.

    So what do we do with Udall come 11/2014? My thoughts revolve around integrity and honesty, the foundation and basis for trust in all human relationships. Unlike your life or your property, it can’t be taken away from you; by anyone. In order to lose it, you must choose to give it away. Udall, like Obama, has consciously sacrificed his integrity and honesty by placing himself and his party’s agenda ahead of Coloradan’s and American’s wishes. Udall won’t support us, so “FIRE THE LIAR in 2014” and elect a politician who puts us ahead of themselves & their party.
    Furthermore, Obama has threatened We The People and our elected representatives with his pen and his phone and Udall does NOTHING except continue his silent acceptance of Obama’s lawlessness that strips him of his Constitutional responsibilities to us. Who needs or wants an inept liar as one of our US Senators?
