Legislation would empower IRS to revoke passports of accused tax delinquents

A Big Brother transport bill that will empower the IRS to revoke passports of alleged tax delinquents, mandate the installation of black boxes in all cars, as well as a myriad of other privacy-busting measures, is set to take a huge leap forward this week.

House Republicans are taking heat from Democrats over their passage of a bill that merely extends funding for already existing federal highway programs. Dems such as Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) have been vocal in pushing the House to pass their version of Senate Bill 1813, otherwise known as the ‘Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act’ (MAP-21).

However, MAP-21 represents a complete federal power grab over transportation and includes a number of chilling provisions that threaten to trample constitutional rights across the board.

The one that’s garnered most attention in the press is a provision that empowers the IRS to revoke passports of tax delinquents merely accused of owing over $50,000 in back taxes.

Labeled by prominent newspapers such as the Investor’s Business Daily as a “Stalinist” assault on mobility rights reminiscent of the Soviet Union, the provision is clearly unconstitutional, violating Article I, Section 9, paragraph 3 , which forbids “Bills of Attainder,” and has also been shot down in several Supreme Court cases.

In addition to the IRS provision, Section 31406 of the bill authorizes mandatory “data event recorders” to be used in all new cars from 2015 onwards. These black boxes couldform the basis of a future tax by the mile system which has beenaggressively pushed by the Obama administration.

Furthermore, Section 53006 of the bill – the “Vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications systems deployment,” creates the framework for all vehicles to be connected wirelessly to other vehicles and infrastructure (such as the new street lights which are being installed with “Homeland Security applications” and can listen in on conversations), greasing the skids for constant real-time tracking, eavesdropping and surveillance.

Accusations by Democrats that House Republicans are killing jobs by refusing to pass MAP-21 is putting pressure on lawmakers to vote on a House version of S. 1813 that could include some or all of the provisions detailed above.

“Both the House and Senate are expected to appoint conferees to the highway bill as early as this week,” reports The Hill, meaning that once disagreements over the legislation have been resolved in committee, the final version of the bill will be up for a vote.
