See what did I tell you. Big Government types think knowing to see here, nobody did anything wrong.
So we blocked the TEa Party from getting what was rightfully their right to have. In the rule book… But nobody did anything illegal.
So we cut off your fundraising ability. TOUGH… The Government is after you. They will only find new ways to accomplishing the same thing. Eliminate the opposition, it’s been the Obama way since he began his political career.
This is your warning …
The outgoing leader of the Internal Revenue Service drew audible “wows” from Republicans on the House Ways and Means Committee on Friday for saying he doesn’t think what the agency did to tea party groups was illegal.
“It is absolutely not illegal,” Steve Miller, the acting commissioner of the IRS who resigned this week because of the scandal, said while being questioned by Georgia Rep. Tom Price.
A number of legislators let out bursts of “wow” at his answer.
Here’s their exchange:
Price: Is it illegal what they’ve done?
Miller: It is absolutely not illegal.
Price: It is not illegal what the IRS has done?
Miller: So let me understand the question. What is your statement as to what is illegal?
Price: Do you believe that it is illegal for employees of the IRS to create lists, to target individual groups and citizens in this country?
Miller: I think the [Department of] Treasury inspector general indicated it might not be, but others will be able to tell that.
Price: What do you believe?
Miller: I don’t believe it is. I don’t believe it should happen.
Price: Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
Miller: Please don’t get me wrong. It should not happen.
