    What Rep. Kelly said about sitting on the other side of the table from an IRA auditor should send a chill down every taxpayers spine.

    I guess that reality gets lost on some.

    again, where was the smack down? i would have loved to have watched it
    I guess all the ones who gave him a standing ovation for putting the IRS in their place says different. I have never seen a standing ovation at a congressional hearing. have you?

    Not on me. The guy was clearly trying to dance around the question.

    You know this doesn't even speak to the IRS leaking donors list from Conservative organizations.

    Illegally to the Democrat party and to left wing activist organizations.

    I mean the IRS targeting Conservative groups is only the tip of the ice berg.

    Do you actually think that Obama's General Counsel withheld that data from Obama for 3 WEEKS ?

    Withheld the IG's list that showed targeting based on ideology ? A situation as serious as the IRS being used to target Obama's political opponents, you actually think Obama was informed by News ?
    there was NO targeting
    there was a reasonable identification of applicants for tax exclusion whose application gave indication of political activity
    which activity had to be examined to determine whether said political activity was primarily what the organization was engaged in
    such as tea party organizations
    or patriot organizations

    the only ones who need not fear the IRS are the ones on the left. You would fear them if this was a republican administration and they went after you

    watch again
    the congressman asked only one question - for which he awaited an answer - during the entire five minutes of his diatribe

    LOL !!

    Please look up the definition of objective.

    It doesn't mean coming to a conclusion based on cherry picked data to back your political agenda.

    With a list of Conservative groups, no liberal or leftist or progressive groups were targeted, AND the revelation that the IRS leaked donor list to Democrats and to left wing activist groups your " objective " opinion is they committed no wrong doing ?

    Lol.....

    Ah yes, more reaching down into the muck when nothing of substance is available.

    Let's see if I can get down to that level....

    When your side learns how to earn a decent income, perhaps the IRS will be viewed as something other than an avenue to get free money through earned income credits.

    would you call having the word "Progressive" in a groups name as a sign of political affiliation? why wasn't that word on the targeting list? only words that was in that targeting list are conservative buzz words why wasn't there and liberal buzz words on that list? why didn't any conservative organization get approved in the last 27 months and liberal groups got approved in less then 9 months
