Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-NY) Said Former IRS Chief Douglas Shulman Lied to Congress … “There’s absolutely no targeting.” #IRS Lied!!!

 

Bipartisan outrage against the IRS scandal …

As reported at The Hill, Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-NY) stated that IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman lied under oath during the 2012 House Ways and Means Committee hearing in which Shulman, in response to questions from Rep. Charles Boustany (R-LA), held that the IRS was not targeting specific groups applying for tax-exempt status.  Shulman stated, “There’s absolutely no targeting.” Well, we certainly know that he was lying through his teeth as the IRS has admitted in a half-hearted apology admitted that they targeted Conservative, Tea party and religious organizations for their tax-exempt status. Douglass Shulman is expected to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee next week. So what happens to an individual who lied to Congress? Anything? How about the MSM? There is some moral outrage, but hardly the level if this had happened if a Republican was president.

This is a serious issue and the trust of “We the People” and our government hang in the balance. What happened to a government that was of, by and for the People? Our government has become one that attacks us and we fight against, not for the People.

“Yes, I can give you assurances [there was not targeting of groups based on political leanings]. As you know we pride ourselves on being a non-political, non-partisan organization.” (2012 House Ways and Means Committee hearing)

Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.) said the former Internal Revenue Service (IRS) commissioner appointed by President George W. Bush lied to Congress under oath when he told lawmakers last year that the agency did not give special attention to certain groups.

Following the House’s opening investigative hearing into the IRS’s revelation that it gave extra scrutiny to conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status, Crowley was asked if he believed Douglas Shulman lied to Congress.

“I think Mr. Shulman did,” said Crowley in an interview with Fox News. “My understanding is that it was common knowledge if they were going after political groups back then.”

Crowley was referencing a 2012 House Ways and Means Committee hearing in which Shulman, in response to questions from Rep. Charles Boustany (R-La.), held that the IRS was not targeting specific groups applying for tax-exempt status.

“There’s absolutely no targeting,” said Shulman at the time.

So the question remains, was Barack Obama sincere in his outrage over the IRS scandal? Does anyone think that if such targeting was done against Progressive and Liberal group that were favorable to Obama, that he would be acting differently? I think we all know the answered. The only thing that will even attempt to satisfy the American people lack of trust in the US government is either individuals need to be put in prison for IRS-gate or the entire IRS needs to be scrapped, one and for all.

      The Congressional House needs to immediately defund the operation of the IRS and begin to investigate all supervisory level personnel.

      This whole idea of federal agencies targeting citizens under color of law for political reasons has to be directed from the White House or the Democratic party leadership or both. The culprits need to be found and prosecuted.

      I agree.

      Immediately move to a national sales tax.

      We can no longer trust the IRS. This organization is TOTALLY CORRUPT. After listening to the directors of this organization testifying before congress, I would not trust them with $10, much less my tax return. DEFUND THIS CORRUPT OUTFIT NOW.

      NATIONAL SALES TAX.
