A new bill, the “Stop Targeting of Political Beliefs by the IRS Act of 2014” (HR 3865), would prohibit the IRS from enforcing its unconstitutional new rules concerning 501(c)4 nonprofits for exactly one year. This would get us past the next election, give the Ways and Means Committee time to complete its ongoing investigation into the IRS’s targeting of political groups, and provide the public with ample opportunity to learn about and weigh in on the new rules.

According to the FDA, acetaminophen—the active ingredient in Tylenol—was the leading cause of acute liver failure in Americans between 1998 and 2003. There is no reason to think this has changed since. But when the New York Times published an article on liver damage and health products, they said not one word about Tylenol or acetaminophen. They instead put the blame solely on nutritional supplements! Read more and TAKE ACTION to ask the New York Times to protect the public, save lives, and correct their misleading, anti-supplement article by giving at least equal coverage to Tylenol and acetaminophen.

Any disgruntled politician could easily ask the IRS to revoke the 501(c)4 status of groups who disagree with his or her politics!

On a more positive note, it also includes Section 11321, which protects small farmers from burdensome FDA regulations. The Senate version of the bill has neither of these provisions. We need for the final, reconciled bill to have Section 11321, but not the King Amendment. Read more and TAKE ACTION to ask Congress to throw out the King amendment and keep Section 11321.
