Already being called “Obama’s Watergate,” the White House emphatically told reporters “they had no idea” the IRS was targeting conservative, evangelical and pro-Israel groups and that they “absolutely did not” have any communications with the agency about it.
An anonymous Cincinnati IRS official told The Washington Post, “Everything comes from the top. We don’t have any authority to make those decisions without someone signing off on them. There has to be a directive.”
With skepticism thick on Capitol Hill, Rep. Rob Portman (R-OH), told CBS News that an “appointment of a special counsel … independent of the White House is necessary.” He added, “There’s a lot of issues here we need to get to the bottom of. We need to find out what really happened and ensure that we can begin to regain some trust in our government.”
Regardless of political affiliation, demands for accountability and justice must ring down on every member of the House and Senate — until a full, criminal investigation is launched!
Craig, the scandalous overreaching of the IRS into the private lives of American citizens makes them incapable of administering ObamaCare. They cannot be trusted, and patriots must speak up!
Grassfire has launched a new petition demanding a full, criminal investigation into the IRS’ harassment of conservatives and no additional funding or staffing for the IRS as it relates to ObamaCare.
+ + Senate And House Hearings Set For This Week
Following the insulting and arrogant testimony given by outgoing acting IRS commissioner Steve Miller last week, the Senate Finance Committee and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will continue the investigation into whocalled for the targeting of Tea Party, conservative, evangelical and pro-Israel groups.
Hearings are a start, but they simply aren’t enough. As this investigation widens, grassroots Americans have an unprecedented opportunity to rise up and hold the IRS and the Obama administration responsible and accountable for this scandal.
But it all starts with you!
During his radio show today, not only did Rush Limbaugh suggest that the White House knew what was going on, he also said the IRS’ targeting effort was part of a plan to frighten Americans from financially supporting conservative causes — not just leading up to Obama’s 2012 re-election, but also for 2014!
This is YOUR opportunity to speak up!
Thank you, in advance, for taking a stand.
