And when you say in essence what do you mean.
Well Lou -- first well thanks for having this is you know this is such an outrage what's going on in Washington.
You know the American people are rightly upset about it.
First of all this the president of the United States whoever that is sets the tone for the federal government and when the United States president -- -- to the State of the Union Address.
And denounces this the the United States Supreme Court and our decision Citizens United -- of the Federal Election Commission which really was a First Amendment case first and foremost.
-- that's where did it rip it allowed more people to participate in the process the Democrats didn't like it.
And what they did was they wanted the IRS and the FEC to calm down on 501 -- forced to the president in his attack at the state of the union.
Really set the stage for -- and then within weeks.
Chuck Schumer and a list of left wing senators sent a letter to the IRS.
Demanding that the IRS do just that really look closely.
All of the conservative groups and so this the IRS is not out -- doing things that.
The powers that be don't want them to do that's what the American people have to focus on its not about incompetence.
At the IRS I can assure you that.

Let's not let a crisis go to waste so I say let's focus on abolishing the IRS and replacing it.

Really holding them hostage to paying their taxes I think those 90000 people to be may be used on the border.
Well that's uninteresting concept that it whatever I think we can all agree right now.

He did you need to have Lerner come back immediately.
She waived her right to the Fifth Amendment.
A good defense and I can tell -- as a former chief investigator of that committee of the committee on government reform and oversight.
I do help people in contempt we did it both in the senate and in the house and what you have to do is go to the full house get a vote.
Of the full House of Representatives and hold them in contempt of congress and that's the only way you're gonna get -- testimony out of her.
