    If this is all you have to hang your hat on it is weak, weak, weak.
    There is no legal right to that information, who anyone prays for is NONE of the business of the government. They have no right whatsoever to be asking the question in any tone or manner. Better check your libertarian card at the door of that argument.

    Her sincere and " honest " answers would expose their Narraitive. Stop the Witch hunt right ? And your'e saying I'm being partisan ?

    She is being questioned by a Republican Comittee but your'e claiming she needs to protect herself from Obama ?

    And yes, she did lie. During the press conference she stated these were "front line employees in Cinci, and that was isolated to that division"

    A clear attempt to mititigate the truth.

    This isn't going anywhere, and I know for a fact more whistle blowers are on their way.
    Yeah, I know it's not going anywhere. That's the sorry state of American politics, that people are concerned about this nonsense.

    I hope every citizen is concerned because what's going on here is a wake-up call.

    The power to tax is the power to destroy. This is a serious matter. If she really does take the fifth then the reaction will achieve critical mass and the administration risks a firestorm.

Selective outrage is all this is, and a witch hunt. You are not pursuing this is good faith. If you were to set your partisanship aside you'd see there is no issue here at all.
    'No issue here at all'??? EVERYONE from the President, press secretary, Treasury secretary, EVERY congress person in hearing both last and this week and the VARIOUS other government officials have been emphatic that there IS and issue here...what am I missing?

    Yeah, why let facts get in the way of a good scandal?

    So now the people who claim that Obama and his administration are liars suddenly take what they say as the Gospel!

    There is a very minor constitutional issue, nothing that you'd ever have gotten worked up about if the IRS was doing this to, say, Wiccans. But there was no deliberate targeting of conservatives for political purposes.

    You are letting your imagination run wild. The IRS will not have access to your medical records. Their enforcement role in "Obamacare" has nothing to do with the medical side of things.
