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.
Elliot Gould, IMHO.
“Whoa: Did IRS ask pro-life group to disclose the content of their prayers?”

Nothing suprises me anymore with this bunch. (sadly) Has ceased to be a Govt. by the People and instead a Govt. by the “sheeple” for the “sheeple”.
“ad hominem” is kid stuff, come on. There’s probably a dozen freepers named Miller.
??? Miller is English and Scottish/Irish. Like grain mill.
‘Contents of that prayer please’. (love, the IRS)
Soon that’s going to tip over, just like Guam.
You would have to ask Eli’s mama. Later in the speech when DL was droning on about how folks needed to live their lives, someone from the audience shouted out “Prayer”. Ma have been Mama again.
distraction- bring 1 1/2 year-old “fetus” to hearing. (yes, i am being sarcastic about the term that the anti-life uses and poking at Watt for bringing a young child to a HEARING)
that was awesome
lol, someone “dredging” up prayer.
Make it a buzzard, not an eagle.
Make it thorns and not an olive branch.
The scales are not balanced and one of them needs to be a $ and the other weigh a skull... as in SS skull. The $ weighs more.
There is no blind justice in Amerika anymore. Blind rage should follow.
I missed it when it happened (had to go shopping) but I just saw Kelly on a Fox news clip and I am in awe of him. He was forceful and angry as heck. I love the man!! My hands hurt from clapping.
Miller made a snarky face and Kelly caught it and hammered him harder. God Bless Kelly.
Yeah but practice with him first so when he sees Miller or the IG, he screams “grampa, that’s the monster under my bed!”, then he runs and hides under the desk where Mike Kelly is sitting, ha!
I answered the question asked.
If they don't know, here's some 'visual aids':

(...even though I have rollers in at the moment).”
How many different stations can you pick up with your rollers?
Bravo!. Thanks for posting!
