One more time: It’s important to clarify to those who miss the point more often than not, that this isn’t about defending the IRS. It’s about the hypocrisy of some on the right.
And there’s a whole lot of hypocrisy on the right to draw from; this is only the latest. The Hill, April 2011:
Republicans on the House Ways and Means Committee asked federal tax authorities Friday to look into AARP’s finances. [...] Democrats say Republicans are simply trying to punish the seniors’ lobby for putting its considerable weight behind healthcare reform.
Above are screen shots of two letters, one from April 2011, one from December 2011, from Republicans requesting the audit.
To repeat, House Republicans called for an IRS probe into AARP when it supported passage of the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare. So who’s going to jail for that scandal?
“The IRS admitted to targeting conservatives, even if the White House continues to be stuck on the word ‘if.’ My question isn’t about who is going to resign. My question is who’s going to jail over this scandal?”
