The IRS scandal shows that those who make decisions must be held responsible.

GeeOpie,  Don't hold your breath.  

Being held responsible would be self-evidence of a Republic, where the Rule of Law was still governing instead of the ruling Oligarchic Kleptocracy:


"Oops"
 
I'm not seeing it happen, are you?

Oh and BTW - been there, did that -- passed the audit -- a month after I got home from 9/12 and received a bill from the IRS for $60,000+ that I DIDN'T OWE.
