Did not update.
Members of congress when they learned that this was going wrong.
Well lots of questions clearly and we have no answers.
On why they did this -- set this in motion in the first place but I have to ask you.
A couple of senators wrote letters to the IRS Democrats.
Asking them to go after these -- do you think it's possible that that was the impetus for all of this chasing down -- Tea Party years.
Was funny you and -- that I'm holding one of those letters right here.
Yes -- need it if you look at what the IRS was doing.
It was responding it appears and we want to get the facts but it looks like they were doing exactly what senator Levin asked them -- it right.
Exactly what senator Schumer.
Asked them to do.
In you know I just cannot say this.
This is another reason why we need tax reform if you take the complexity out of the tax code.
You will -- remove power from the IRS.
I have guest hit it now before you go here.
You know Steve Miller acting commissioner has now resigned to under pressure he was -- -- in June anyway I mean it's not like it's a big deal.
But does that take some of the wind out of the sails out of this hearing because he's going to be testifying but at the end of the day he's not still on on.
Well look ultimately we've got to get to the facts whether he's an office or not.
Apparently there -- others still working at the IRS who were engaged in this.
And I was just reading a breaking story.
Apparently the individual that was in charge of the tax exempt.
Is now running the Obama -- section of the IRS.
