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.

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.

and that is why Obama made this rambling speech, he has to get these investigations off the headlines.

Well then, we'll just have to make sure they stay in the headlines, won't we.....

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!
