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 still America?' Congressional hearing turns into IRS smackdown as disgraced former commissioner and Treasury Inspector General face tea-party scandal questions"
> Is this still America?
No, Congressman, and it hasn’t been for a long, long time. Most of my 60+ years, in fact.
Is isn’t America.
It is Omerica.
And we are Omericans.
No wonder the government has been amassing weapons and ammunition. If I’d been doing what they have, I’d be nervous, too.
NO,do you have a follow-up?
Obama armed the IRS and turned them into the “Brown Shirts” of the “Party”.
Again, foreign media reporting this stuff. The U.S. media? Writing love letters to Jay Carney (Jennifer Steinhauer - NYT).
The IRS has planted the seeds of its and the “party’s” distruction.
Agreed... We haven’t seen the real America since the 1950s. It had partially gone away from decades of Constitutional abuse, but there still was a traditional America around during the 50’s. See my “about page”
I miss those days terribly.
Kevin Brady finally came alive. I’ve criticized him here on FR many times saying you need to put a mirror to his face to see if he is still alive.
He did his job today. It was a simple and good question but not one Steve Miller can answer or will answer.
It’s not a smack down if mere words are exchanged.
I am waiting for congress to do some smacking down. But they are for a large part, a bunch of ladyparts.
They’re just asking this now?
No, idiots, it’s not still America. We done been FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORMED!!
I'm tired of paying an accountant every year when a flat tax could replace the whole mess.
A promise that this will not occur again ain't good enough for me, disband the bastards and be done with them.
Well many Americans also have been buying guns and ammo also as well as ongoing gun sales have shown.
Or even a fair tax.
