Collins says IRS revelations will fuel government distrust
(CNN) – President Barack Obama should personally condemn the Internal Revenue Service for putting extra scrutiny on conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status, Sen. Susan Collins said Sunday.
The Maine Republican said the disclosure that a government agency would go after groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names would only add to a growing sense of mistrust Americans have in their government. She was one of a number of Republicans who blasted the IRS on Sunday’s talk shows.
Obama is the one who put the IRS up to these shenanigans in the first place, so why would he condemn them for following orders? Get Real!
