Skip to comments.Embattled IRS makes debut in House GOP attack ads
Posted on 05/27/2013 2:04:18 PM PDT by neverdem
A House Republican group is launching an ad campaign against four incumbent Democrats this week that aims to tie the lawmakers to the Internal Revenue Service, a government agency under scrutiny after officials admitted earlier this month to targeting conservative groups applying for nonprofit status.
The National Republican Congressional Committee will dispatch thousands of trucks to drive around the districts of Democratic Reps. Ann Kirkpatrick and Ron Barber of Arizona, Collin Peterson of Minnesota and John Barrow of Georgia on Tuesday with versions of this billboard:

Obama care is the signature achievement of the one term former congressman democrat running for governor of Michigan. It should be a real treat watching him run on that record.
Hopefully, the GOOBers will run somebody against Kirkpatrick next time. They had some guy on the ballot but Kirkpatrick was running some vicious ads against him 24/7. And I mean 24/7. She even had one goofy ad with a bunch of Brokeback Mountain style “cowboys” sitting around a campfire drinking latte and laughing at the GOP candidate. The GOP never put out one ad to respond.
More like 'Criminal IRS'... What the IRS did was criminal ...
Not to mention the FBI.
Great ads. I would donate to have those run on billboards across the country.
The point that is germane is one the media seem to be assiduously avoiding: will the political abuse of tax policy become the political abuse of healthcare policy? Given that the same organization and the same people are involved? I'd love to hear someone in the media even take that question seriously. It shouldn't be only in partisan political advertisements that the issue is brought up.
Obamacare will be in “full bloom” for the 2014 mid term elections.
I’m quietly optimistic.
Lets see how this unfolds...question is: can the media continue to cover for these crooks? Or will Lois Lerner or Doug Shulman turn into this year’s John Dean?
The repubs wouldn’t want to do that! It would be tasteless! Better to reach across the Isle and shake hands. Let by-gones be by-gones.
After all, we are the party of “class” and we don’t “stoop to their level”
We are gentlemen.

How’s that been working out?
Ann had that race won when they redistricted the state (a “nonpartisan” group did it, yeah right). The new-look district is gerrymandered to include all the Indians in the world (as Bill Cosby once put it), and they all vote the same, you know, tribal.
Still, like you say, the pubes should have at least fought her. She is a disaster.
It’s a start boys! Proud of you!!!
She had some state representative who is a Navajo doing campaign ads for her that were full of nothing but lies. Lies that made Obama look like the most truthful person on the planet. They were played every 10 minutes on the talk radio station here. No return fire from Paton. On the day following the election, I realized that Paton wasn’t just keeping his powder dry. He didn’t have any powder.
Finally the national GOP are doing something right.
I know people audited by the IRS. They are obots but this IRS scandal has them saying the IRS is reaping what it sowed.. They have no sympathy for these IRS officials.
On which? The Dem Libs or the Lesser Evil Republican libs?
Both I think.
"This could be a threat to our phoney-baloney jobs!"
Holy cow, you mean to tell me there is an actual Republican running?
Harumph! Hey I didn’t get a Harumph outta Bhoner and McConnel...
ABOLISH THE INCOME TAX!
ABOLISH THE IRS!
YES! I AM YELLING!
WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR?
They’re not stupid. Watch for ridiculously low teaser rates and a backloaded cost structure.
