US Rep Kevin Brady ( TX-R) asks, “Is this still America”?… IRS Official Steven Miller: “I Don’t Think Targeting Is Wrong”
FALL LIKE AN EAGLE: IRS Steve Miller thinks its perfectly ok to target Americans …
During todays House Ways and Means Committee on the IRS scandals, Texas Republican congressman Kevin Brady asked out-going IRS commissioner, ” Is this still America”? He then went on to ask, “Is this government so drunk on power that it would turn its full force, its full might to harass, intimidate, and threaten an average American who only wants her voice and their voices heard”?
What is most amazing is that Commissioner Miller of the IRS actually said, “I do not believe targeting again is wrong”. WOW, simply wow. This is the same organization that is to police Obamacare and they think its ok to target Americans. The Obama administrator does not believe in targeting Muslims for terrorism, but his IRS official believes it is perfectly OK to target Conservatives. UNREAL. This comment alone makes me believe 100% that the IRS need to be completely defunded and abolished. This vindictive organization that operates above the law needs to be ended once and for all. It’s time to implement a flat tax and do away with the IRS so these type of Unconstitutional acts never, ever happen again to anyone, no matter what their party affiliation or political opinions are.
The Daily Mail:
The IRS under the Obama administration painted targets on the backs of conservatives beginning in 2010, and ousted acting IRS commissioner Steven Miller apologized to the House Ways and Means Committee on Friday. But members on both sides of the aisle were furious, and castigated him for the mismanagement and political gamesmanship the IRS engaged in on his watch.
Texas Republican congressman Kevin Brady had the harshest criticism for Miller.
‘Is this still America?’ he asked him.
‘Is this government so drunk on power that it would turn its full force, its full might, to harass, and intimidate, and threaten an average American who only wants her voice, their voices heard?’
‘The American public deserves better,’ Miller agreed. But both he and J. Russell George, the Treasury Department’s Inspector General for Tax Administration, insisted that no IRS employees engaged in political witch-hunting.
