Laura Ingraham hosted David Smith on IRS freezing small business assets in civil forteiture.
Smith explained that the IRS, Justice Department and Congress are to blame. He stated that the statute had a good purpose to nab criminals, but was poorly written. He said the banks often tell customers to keep deposits small to cut down on bank paperwork which can harm the business person in the eyes of the IRS. He said in civil forefeiture the federal government doesn't have to prove their case and Ingraham said it's a federal stick-up of innocent people without probable cause as stated in the Eighth Amendment. Smith said there is little oversight of these abuses.
