This is how corruption works in DC on both sides. The D and R monopoly is maintained this way.
The problem is that the rank and file congressman in DC seems to take orders from the party higher ups and ignores what his constituents really want. Unless they really screw up, most voters say "well he's a pretty good guy" and keep re-electing them, so the cycle continues. We need to start demanding that our "representatives" do more representing of OUR views, starting with getting rid of Boehner!
This is why I believe there’s no concerted effort to get to the bottom of the IRS criminal activities in concert with the White House. Boehner, McConnell and the establishment Republicans want the Tea Party to go away. The Democraps and their media water carriers have succeeded in killing the story (does Fox News even cover it anymore?). The IRS unions saw the goal of the Tea Party to get rid of it as a threat and were more than willing to jump in bed with Obama. Corruption everywhere. This is the story that should bring down a lot of the political class, and it gets no coverage. If the courts kill off the civil suits, the destruction of the Constitution is complete.
