U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) called for fundamental tax reform in order to abolish the IRS and put an end to its abuse of everyday American citizens. He urged Texans who believe they may have been targeted by the IRS to email irstarget@cruz.senate.gov.

“IRS targeting of American citizens is a threat and challenge, but also an inspiration,” said Cruz. “It is an inspiration that these leaders are standing up. It is a threat that the federal government is targeting, not big corporations or lobbyists, but normal American citizens that are standing up for liberty. It is a challenge that we all face to limit the power of Washington.”

Sen. Cruz called for the abolition of the IRS saying, “After these revelations of political targeting by the IRS, we need to padlock and shut down the building, abolish the IRS, and move to a flat tax or the FAIR Tax.”
