Texas Rep To IRS: Is This Still America?

05.17.13 01:36 PM

During Congressional questioning of Steven Miller, the former Internal Revenue Service acting*commissioner, Representative Kevin Brady (R-Texas) had a simple question for the taxman: Is this still America?

“Is this still America?” asked Brady. “Is this government so drunk on power that it would turn its full force, full might, to harm, intimidate, and threat an average American that only wants her voice and their voices heard?”

Here’s the video:



The IRS hearings took a similar direction as hearings earlier in the week with high ranking officials involved in the scandals that have come to light deflecting blame and uttering “I don’t know” a number of times in response to lawmaker questions.

For his part, Miller denied any partisan motivation in the IRS actions on Friday.

“I do not believe that partisanship motivated the people who engaged in the practices described in the treasury inspector general’s report,” Miller said. “I think that what happened here was that foolish mistakes were made by people trying to be more efficient in their workload selection. The listing described in the report, while intolerable was a mistake and not an act of partisanship.”
