The left is doing their best to convince the country that there’s nothing to this IRS scandal.
It’s a non-issue. It’s a manufactured scandal.
But conservatives are convinced there is more to this than we already know. Tea Parties were definitely targeted by the IRS. It started around 2010.
We know this.
Which makes this even more damning:
As the Washington Examiner noted last weekend, ex-commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service Douglas Shulman went to the White House some 118 times in 2010 and 2011, while Steven Miller, the acting director who took over from Shulman last November, himself made numerous trips there, White House visitor logs show.
Business as usual for one of the most powerful arms of the federal government, you might think. Not so.
Mark Everson, who ran the IRS during most of the George W. Bush administration, from 2003 to 2007, apparently visited a single time, grousing that he felt like he had “moved to Siberia” because the tax collection agency was so out of the policy loop.
The alibi the White House has wedded itself to is that it had to work closely with the IRS to implement ObamaCare. But House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., says “it’s hard to believe” the IRS’ abusive targeting of Tea Party and other conservative groups did not enter into the conversations that took place at these meetings, at least “in passing.”
We are to believe that the 118 visits to the White House were all about Obamacare, or Easter Egg rolls, but they never talked about the harassment of the Tea Party.
No one in the White House ever said anything about it.
Yeah, I’m not buying it either.
