The recent comments of Obama on the IRS scandal rank up there with the most ignorant comments of a President in modern history. The President had denied the scandal and then tries to blame any issues on Republicans for lack of funding. The IRS is not nor has it ever been underfunded. Look at the bonuses awarded Lerner and the travel and training budgets that put any other agency to shame.
There is ample evidence Lerner conspired with outside agencies. In this case, we are facing the Federal equivalent of the Blue Wall of silence. Congress should place an immediate pay and hiring freeze on the IRS until the workers step forward and testify against Lerner. If Lerner thought she was hated before let her coworkers feel it in their pay checks. If Lerner had an ounce of ethics, she would spare her coworkers. She has no ethics and continues to play victim. Her actions are a text book example of abuse of power and violate every ethics law on the book. Lerner as a lawyer should be held to a higher standard and should spend the rest of her life in jail with violent criminals.
