Posted on 05/23/2013 11:57:48 AM PDT by Laissez-faire capitalist
Starting in the fall of 2010, ten leading Democrats - including Max Baucus, Chuck Schumer, and Al Franken - wrote the IRS demanding that the agency crack down on conservative groups.
500 conservative and Christian groups were illegally targeted by the Obama IRS starting in 2010. For twenty-seven months the Obama IRS refused to approve any Tea Party applications for tax-exempt status while at the same time the Obama IRS approved dozens of progressive applications.
Now these same top Democrats are feigning outrage.

IRS Agency on Crack?
Everyone has been asking about impeaching the Prezidente but here are a couple more very very very prime candidates for quick attention!
Drag them in front of the House Committee and get them to testify about their conspiracy to violate the Hatch Act.
10 Democrats? How many of them have Republican Governors who can replace them with Republican senators?
I see a palace coup brewing.
and that is why Obama made this rambling speech, he has to get these investigations off the headlines.
He knows damn well the house won’t closed Gitmo and have them come here and so he looks for the straw man again.
Now the headlines will be about Gitmo and not him taking peoples rights away and targeting them
And they say we’re paranoid and that there isn’t any coordinated conspiracy.
All I could get from the video:
1. Sen Levin
2. Sen Schumer
3. Sen Baucus
4. Rep Welsh (Vt)
5. Al Franken
Anyone know who the other 5 are?
Nope. Not gonna move the needle a single hair.
All they need is a brown uniform and a little Hitler mustache....
I worked in a government agency in the late 70's. Even then liberals were in charge, and IF a republican asked for an accounting the walls around the agency went up. These agencies are reelection tools for liberals. Generally speaking republicans are 'law and order'!!!!
Baucus has really turned out to be a bastard. And now he is running for the exits.
That’s the thing: everyone wants to know if Obama told them to do it, but several Democrat Senators actually put it in writing.
Those Senators need to testify. Questions should be asked.
This really involves the entire Democrat party.
Is Sherrod Brown on that list?
Unionism is a religion, and that is the entity that hands out the blessings to majority. There is a draw to liberal minded peoples to work for US. Why like I have heard from some on the state welfare they got rights. Never mind somebody else is paying the bill.
Of all people many on the list are Jews. Have they not learned anything about the past in regards to cracking down on a group?
Treason! When are we going to get a REAL president that will prosecute these monsters and TRULY stop federal bureaucrats from their lawlessness?
I’m tired of cowards and RINO’s playing the DC two-step with us and will NEVER vote again for thier lies. This includes people like Rubio and Paul Ryan. Both got DC-itis so fast I’m surprised they aren’t hospitalized.
The feckless GOP plays the same games as the Dems. No accountability, no realism in budgeting and spending, etc.
Only in lame stream media that no one reads any longer.
Well then, we'll just have to make sure they stay in the headlines, won't we.....
damn right pal

Amazing that douche bag is a Senator.
Democrat and the IRS = the Tax and Spend Axis
If nothing else, every one of them up for re-election in 2014 should be, MUST BE, defeated!
In the meantime, criminal charges must be brought against all ten!
