IRS assault should not be tolerated

I have been following the Congressional hearings on the IRS targeting of conservative groups and am outraged at the abuse of power exhibited by the IRS. American citizens have been asked by a governmental organization about the content of their prayers, the people they associate with, and whether they or any member of their family are considering a run for political office. This intrusiveness is a direct assault on the personal freedom of the American people and should not be tolerated in a free society.
