7. Why Does The Word "Exclusive" Need To Be Interpreted

Especially when the interpretation is far less clear than the original wording. It has never made any sense. And we can be sure that if the IRS ruled that the 1959 interpretation was no longer operable and the wording in the law would now be followed that Republicans would scream that Obama was politicizing the IRS, when in fact it would be taking politics out of the definition. Lastly, something needs to be done about the perjury being committed routinely on the applications. The fact is that the IRS is powerless in such areas because of the certainty of being accused of playing politics when attempting to enforce the law. The reality is that the IRS is the wrong agency to have responsibility for making these decision. Their responsibility should just be the enforcement of tax collection laws. These other issues belong in another office such as the FEC.
