Posted on 05/18/2013 9:40:55 PM PDT by grundle
WASHINGTON (KMOX) Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-MO, issued a video statement Friday in response to reports that the Internal Revenue Service unfairly targeted conservative nonprofit groups.
Im mad. It is un-American, it is wrong, and we have to make sure that this gets fixed, Missouris senior senator said. Theres a reason Lady Justice wears a blindfold in America. That is because in America, we dont apply the law based on who you are, who you know, or what you believe. We apply the law equally.
McCaskill went on to say that the targeting of one group based on political beliefs infuriates her.
We should not only fire the head of the IRS, which has occurred, but weve got to go down the line and find every single person who had anything to do with this and make sure that they are removed from the IRS and the word goes out that this is unacceptable, she said. It is un-American, it is wrong, and it cannot occur again.

The federal government does need to keep a flow of funds coming in until things are addressed. Other than that, I’m all for defunding in principle and when it’s facilitate properly.
Sound like legalese for I don’t want it to happen. Not really. I just don’t want full-on chaos to ensue. When that happens, the Leftists exploit it.
I don’t want that.
Just following the rat talking point response. If you say it long enough people will believe it. Firing the scapegoats will take the heat off the real perpetrators
He wasn't fired. He was due to leave the job in June, and that's when he will leave. He will collect the same pension that he would have received if he hadn't been "fired". This is just another lie from the Lyin' King himself (peace be upon him).
The only thing that will begin to fix this problem is to fire the ENTIRE chain of command, top to bottom.
there will be more talk than ACCOUNTABILITY.
Congress will do nothing that does not make THEM
and their families RICHER.
Bingo! Probably tied to a well-rehearsed agenda to humanize a bunch of Dims so they can build a wall of protection around the absolute worst of them.
She obviously has never tried firing a federal employee
She has never tried to fire a federal Affirmative Action employee.
Fire EVERYONE involved, from the top all the way down to the lowliest worm squirming in the bowels of the IRS. Claw back their bonuses. Cancel their pensions. Make sure they ALL do some prison time—90 days for the lowly worms, up to 25 years for the ringleaders.
DOWN the line, really????How about we go up the line and find out who let loose the dogs.
Nice dodge she’s trying here. Show trials, scapegoats...look! we fixed it.
No, put em under oath, under penalty of perjury, and see how up this goes.
I want my tax dollars back that paid their salary. I don’t care if they go to jail, their problem, but my money was given to them, that’s MY problem...give it back...take it out of their 40-k and give it back to ME!
Of course, they did their job in suppressing free speech, intimidating conservatives and reelecting Obama. Now, let them earn a private bonus somewhere.
Firings too good for them. How about a decade’s worth of federal imprisonment?
time to delete the present tax laws and implement the fair tax Neal Bortz promotes - I like it!
Palpable fear expressed as “we gotta do something......quick”
“Missouris senior senator said, Theres a reason Lady Justice wears a blindfold in America. That is because in America, we dont apply the law based on who you are, who you know, or what you believe. We apply the law equally.
Maybe she should ask that Zimmerman fellow in Florida if that has been his experience.
Do you mean this Claire McCaskill?
Town Hall To Claire McCaskill: We Don’t Trust You
Yeah isn’t that rich, “appy the law equally”.
Coming from a democrat.
Guess she hasn’t heard about all the cases where her president supresses the Constitutionally guaranteed rights of her constituants.
If I lived in her district, I would ask her such a question.
After I made my preparations for an assault by the democrat party’s IRS.
Have you ever wondered if ‘certain individuals’, republican or democrat, who have been given a pass on taxes to support 0’s agenda?
I agree. If we just fire them, they are unemployed and will probably get $50k of assistance.
Let’s have them “breakin rocks in the hot sun.” At least we’ll have some broken rocks we didn’t have before. That’s what should happen to those who “fought the law and the law won.”
This would make some great public service announcements, too.
“Breakin rocks” music quietly plays. Opening shot of Sarah Hall Ingram swinging her sledge hammer, breaking rocks. She turns to face the camera with a grim look on her face, wipes sweat from her eyes with the back of her hand. “Hi. I’m Sarah Hall Ingram. I screwed over American tax payers for president obama. I knew it was not only wrong, but illegal. I’m paying for my crime and will continue paying for the next 20 years. I fought the law and the law won.” Volume comes up, camera zooms out and shows a bunch of former IRS and obama henchmen and women breaking rocks.
Racist! Black unemployment will skyrocket.
