We have laws in this Nation that say churches, charities, and civic groups can be tax exempt, if they stay out of politics. We’ve seen many, many cases where they don’t. Well, if you lobby, you have to pay taxes. And the IRS has a taskforce looking into these groups, and has recommended pulling their tax exempt status. It doesn’t say who they are, and it says that it was recommended. If Bush exerts any pressure it’ll be if A) they’re churches and B) it’ll be on the IRS to not publish their names and to NOT remove their tax exempt status. He’s like that.
