Tom Reed - R - NY
IRS has lost trust.
Obama made statement in interview about “no corruption”.
Yet you stated there are 6 investigations, is that a responsible statement by the President about the status of IRS.
Response: statements in face of open investigation, which draw conclusions when it is still ongoing.

Reed: what I just heard was you don’t want to answer the question.

Answer: it is not my role to respond in a debate about perceptions.

Reed: there is no way to come to a conclusion at this time.

Response: evidence is unfolding.
I won’t second guess comments by anyone.

Reed: restates comment - no conclusion?
Response: yes

Reed: How do you know there is under-staffing issue and how will you measure the fulfillment of actions taken?

Response: how many phone calls go unanswered. that is a measure of lack of staff.

Reed: how do you know that people are not doing their job?

Response: I have been to call centers - and calls not getting answered has nothing to do with “not doing their job”.

Kelly - R - PA

Kelly - restore public trust - people come and say use my story but don’t use my name.
how will you turn this around? This is a trust issue.
Make a million 1 in ten chance to be audited?
Response: yes

Kelly: employees of IRS - income amounts

Response: looked into that employee income
employees under critical pay

Kelly: because of your background - called to turn around companies
you are drawing a conclusion - based on facts not being revealed
the truth is we don’t know do we?
Response: No
Kelly: No one can say there is no evidence, because it is not done - those types of answers add to the gap - public trust issue

Kelly: when I am home, they ask how do we know we can trust the government
we give them reasons not to trust us - hearings like this are important
You can’t use my name is chilling
when people say nothing to see here - that’s a clue there is a cover up
