Skip to comments.LIVE THREAD: Congress Begins Investigation into IRS Targeting
Posted on 05/17/2013 6:02:03 AM PDT by don-o
The House Ways and Means Committee holds the first Congressional hearing on the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) subjecting applicants for tax-exempt status to higher levels of scrutiny based on political leanings.
Witnesses include Acting IRS Commissioner Steve Miller who resigned on Wednesday and the Treasury Departments Inspector General Russell George for Tax Administration.
Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) said the IRS' targeting of "American taxpayers based on politics is both astounding and appalling." He stated that the Committee will "get to the bottom of this practice and ensure it never takes place again.
In announcing the hearing, Ranking Member Sander Levin (D-MI) said that it is "essential that there be a thorough and bipartisan investigation and effective remedial action.
Since June 2011, the Committee on Ways and Means has been investigating whether the Internal Revenue Service discriminated against taxpayers based on political opinions.
we need a bigger budget!
Mike Kelly exchange:
Glutton for punishment I am - listening to Dear Leader in the dredging plant in Bawner
Shout out to Elijah Cummings and his mama who Deal Leader said “prays for me every day”
Audience laughed. They LAUGHED at the mention of prayer!!!
Wow..okay, need the YouTube on that one, too!!
Whoa: Did IRS ask pro-life group to disclose the content of their prayers?
Are you going to post that as a separate thread?
Does Miller look like the guy who killed Richard Kimball’s (Harrison Ford) wife (Sela Ward) in the “Fugitive”? You know.....the one-armed guy?
embarassingly, I don’t know how to post a separate thread.

“Jack Lew will be brought in next week, ‘I encourage you to watch.’”
This is great news. The IRS abuse of power story will get another exciting chapter. Was not Jack Lew the White House chief of staff before he took over Treasury from Geithner?
I got it. Thanks for finding it. FReepmail me if you want a tutorial.
Demorats think that we who believe in limited government are the enemy as democrat Obama’s IRS and Obama oppressed us conservatives in the 2012 election to rig the election.
when will you all realize that we are in a war? the democrats have been waging war against us,conservatives,middle America for a long time now and we don’t even know who the enemy is.

Hugh Hewitt @hughhewitt
Miller says it isn’t illegal for IRS to create lists to target Americans. Wow. Just wow. Well done @RepTomPrice
More Mike Kelly:
I remember that. During the run up to the Iraq war they flew to Bagdad to assure the American people what a good guy Saddam was and what a meanie George Bush was. Thompson was my Congress critter. A real POS!
APRIL 2004 : (MCDERMOTT IS EMBARASSED INTO RETURNING $5,000 CONTRIBUTION TO HIS LEGAL DEFENSE FUND BY SHAKIR AL KHAFAJI -—see SADDAM HUSSEIN, BAATISTS, BAGHDAD TRIO)
NOTE that his legal defense fund existed because he was the recipient of illegally taped recordings of a confidential call between Newt Gingrich and Boehner:
“In a 2-1 opinion, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia upheld a lower court ruling that McDermott violated the rights of House Majority Leader John Boehner, who was heard on the 1996 call involving former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
The lower court had ordered McDermott to pay Boehner more than $700,000 for leaking the taped conversation. The figure includes $60,000 in damages and at least $600,000 in legal costs.”
Kelly burns it DOWN!!
Thanks for posting!
Did you folks know that the surname Miller originally came from Baveria, Germany??? This guy Miller does both Obama (Satan) & Hitler proud!!! He is sure living up to his Nazi namesake. He belongs in prison!!!
