No tax exemptions

I have a solution for the possibly illegal and politically targeted scrutiny applied by the IRS to tax-exempt organizations. Remove tax exemption status from all organizations.

If an organization operates in the United States, enjoying all the benefits of being in this country, then it should participate in funding the country. This approach would solve the current issue with the IRS, and it would allow churches like the Catholics and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to spout off about politics without us taxpayers subsidizing them.
