Finally, somebody in Washington, D.C. talks sense and asks the questions I have been asking since this whole IRS “scandal” broke…
“Each of your groups is highly political. From opposing the President’s healthcare reform, to abortion restrictions, to gay marriage, you’re all entrenched in some of the most controversial political issues in this country – and with your applications you are asking the American public to pay for that work. Many of you host and endorse candidates. The line between permitted political activity and non-permitted political activity can be very fine, and it’s important that tax payers know which side you fall on.”
The gentleman from the great state of Washington is definitely today’s hero.
This whole thing is not about misdeeds at the IRS. It’s about a bunch of whiny babies on the right not getting their way. It’s about a federal agency that didn’t cow-tow to the fanatics in the Tea Party in the manner to which those fanatics feel they were entitled.
And that is all it is.
