Miller and his friends in the IRSS are the pinnacle of arrogant big government corrupt liars..
That hearing was an incredible conga-line of lies...
No you a-wipe. It is a violation of federal law, the Hatch Act, to do what Obama had you do.
So who will apologize to Nixon?
when you could wind up doing some serious time,
it is usually better to keep QUIET (and let your lawyer talk for you)
Let's see what the Lawyers say.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Miller, who was forced to resign this week by President Obama
HE was THROWN UNDER THE OBAMA BLAME BUS!
It’s called “DISCRIMINATION”.
And last time i checked, it IS illegal.
Steven Miller wasn’t even acting commissioner during the time the targeting took place. He was in charge of big business division and then “services and enforcement.”
A guy named Shulman was in charge at the time. So Obama’s firing of a guy who wasn’t even there, and who is able to retire, is an in-your-face.
What do I think?
What I know is Miller and his corrupt IRS sidekick were lying nearly every time they spoke.
These people have no respect for freedom, the American people or the Constitution...Of course laws were breached.
The House needs to hold a vote to Abolish the IRS with a Flat tax. Let the Democrats vote for the corrupt IRS now.
Who gives a damn? Is he not just another brick in the corrupt biggov wall?
Did you not hear his lying evasive, deceitful responses?
Was it not obvious to you he's part of this choreographed corrupt government cover up?
I guess that now we taxpayers can refuse to pay our federal taxes, and we can argue that our refusal to pay our taxes is merely "obnoxious" and not "illegal." Too funny.
I would like to know if all the applications from tea party groups for tax-exempt status are now being fast-tracked at the IRS.
And I would like to see what the new questionnaire looks like.
I think you, like other members who will post violations of ‘law’, show, again, that the Law is not made for those in D.C., but for We the People, whom they attempt to bleed ($$) dry.
There is no longer Equal Protection under the Law, there is no Constitution; we are a lawless Democracy on the way down to revolt, upheaval and despair. We are certainly over the ~200 yr run of those in the past.
Forced to resign my ass. He had already put in his papers, and now Obama wants to play hard ass by saying he forced it.
Lying sacks of crap, just can’t help it they have to lie.
