I can accept fired. I had better get a big dose of prison time in addition. This was a complete breach of the law. Hang em high...

Uh...more than that, how about some time. And will those Senators be booted from office and jailed, too?

How can we even feel good about the investigations because these people compromised the elections. That means that we are not be legally represented in these investigations, because of illegal and unconstitutional acts.

“We should not only fire the head of the IRS, which has occurred, but we’ve got to go down the line and find every single person who had anything to do with this

How about up the line too?

Umm, Clare, you are the one that sponsored the bill concerning MCcain and his citizenship, know that Obama was ineligible. And umm, Clare, you were the deciding vote for Obamacare that the IRS will oversee. I am thinking you should just fire yourself for these goofups that have put AMerica in this turmoil.

Otherwise, they will end up somewhere else in Zeros administration!

She’s just pissed that she didn’t think of the idea herself..its so funny hearing from Dems supposedly outraged by this, the same ones who trashed the Tea Party, compared us to members of the Taliban, accused us of everything under the sun and now they are supposedly outraged by the IRS targeting us when it was many Dems who demanded that the Tea Party be targeted

Not impeached, fired. Called into Mr. Soros’ office and fired. I hope they give him two weeks severance.

McCaskill said very few people who are, “legitimately fired,” actually lose their jobs. Or wait, maybe that was Todd Akin.,

McCaskill, where you you back in June 2012 when the Treasury was alerted of an inquiry of these very mishandling of applications and the abuse from the IRS. You seemed to know when to say something; you phony. You probably knew what your boss was doing. You knew about your democratic colleagues writing letters to the IRS demanding those officials there to watch specific groups as the Tea Party etc, didn't you.

She wants them fired so they can be replaced with people who are equally corrupt.

I stand with McCaskil that everyone in the ‘line’ needs to be fired and for my intentions of remedy sent to prison. I generally am very leery of anything she talks about but on this one point I can go with her.

No, Claire.

Prison.

And no more IRS.

The us government has proven itself untrustworthy to wield power, so it is time to remove their power.

Obama is the one behind the IRS rigging the election for Obama ( by suppressing tea party groups).

Yeah this democrat fails to mention the moron behind the IRS riggging the election for it.

I’m detecting the start of a trend wherein both electionwise vulnerable Democrats and those under scrutiny for their votes in vulnerable states (re turning conservative from Democratic control), are beginning to shout loudly about the various scandals (except Fast and Furious, which they have covered up so far).

This is a “panic” diversionary attack, aimed at Democrat liberal government employees who will either fall on their sword for “The Messiah”, or who can retire because they’ve made their pension’s highest payout rates.

Only when people like this leftist Ahole McCaskill demand the resignation of Holder, Jarrett, Donilon, Dempsey, Brennan, Axelrod, Pfoulfe, Carney, Kerry, Perez the racist, the heads of the IRS units involved in this scandal, those in State,CIA and/or Military who told our forces to “stand-down” instead of going to the aid of our diplomats in Libya, and all those in the White House inner circle (including those listed above), who knew about Fast & Furious, the Benghazi coverup, the IRS coverup, and the restrictions placed on our troops in Afghanistan (ROE), will I believe her and others like her (Sen. Carl Levin, a leftist in sheeps clothing; Boxer the fruitcake, Reid the liar, Pelosi the psychopath, etc).

How ‘bout we just fire the entire IRS, the tax code, and go to a simplified national sales tax?

Let everyone put some skin in the game for a change, and remove Washington’s ability to reward and punish Americans with this heinous tool.

You want to get the IRS under control Sen. McCaskill? Remove all funding to run the IRS and pay its 110,000 thug employees. I do not think they will work for free. When you've got ‘em by the balls, their hearts and minds will follow.

I say defund it, shut it down and imprison those involved. No one will ever make me believe this was just a couple of low level employees. This administration sure can fool some of those who believe their intellect is superior to everyone elses.

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.

“We should not only fire the head of the IRS, which has occurred..."

B******t!

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.

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.
