Follow me here for just a second. First Lois Lerner responds to a planted question yielding her off the cuff apology for the IRS unfairly targeting (is there a justification for any targeting by the IRS?), Tea Party & conservative groups.
Next we learn the broad in charge on the division go after tax exempt organizations doesn’t get fired (“acting” IRS Commissioner Steven Miller, due to retire in 2 weeks instead, took the fall), she gets huge bonuses & a promotion and will now become the IRS Obamacare muscle.
Then, even though he’s resigned, fired -whatever, Steven Miller goes in front of the committee day after day, and “can’t recall”, “doesn’t remember”, “didn’t know anything” and didn’t lie”. Bull-crap. It just doesn’t pass any smell test. He lied his arse off!
Next NTEU, the union which represents the National Treasury Employees (IRS) have asked to be exempted from Obamacare. How cheeky is this?? Pretty damn is how cheeky it is. They lobbied for Obamacare, they were in his corner all the way with Obama’s massive takeover of one-fifth of the economy. Then they harassed and delayed tea party and conservative groups’ tax exempt status ensuring Obama’s re-election and success, and NOW they want to be exempt from Obamacare!
But that’s all past history “it happened so long ago” as Jay Carney said of Benghazi. Today, the Internal Revenue Service has decided to thumb their noses at us once again according to this announcement on the IRS Website,
“Due to the current budget situation, all IRS offices will be closed on May 24, June 14, July 5, July 22 and August 30.”
“Up yours Mr. & Mrs. Public, we’ll take as many 3-day weekends as we can possibly get away with”.
Oh, and one more thing, Lois-baby has been put on administrative leave. That means a free, paid vacation for who knows how long, courtesy of the US taxpayer. Like I said, there is NO measure of the gall these people have.
