Leader of targeted pro-life group, Sue Martinez: “Work until it is done, to secure our 1st Amendment freedoms.”
Tea Party vs. government is Shire vs. Mordor. Right on, Becky Gerritson.
Brent Bozell just stepped up to speak. Asks if we think the IRS scandal is “an abuse” of our freedom, and then told us to tell Congress to tell the IRS our opinion!!!!
Beck is right on — he pointed out that even during the Revolution, it was only a small percent of the populace actually fighting.
Glenn Beck is really doing a great job of talking about history, bravery, and patriotism. “Freedom comes at a profound price.” Right on.
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA) followed Rep. Jim Jordan (R-IA). Two great fiscal conservatives defending the Constitution.
Heritage Action’s Mike Needham is speaking about how “it’s not surprising” this scandal happened. “It won’t stop at the IRS.”
It would have been the DOJ, HHS, and other agencies.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) is on stage now, talking about how the people are saying they don’t trust the government.
Nor should they, eh, Patriots? “A majority” of Americans have “the mindset of the Founders.”
Eric Holder should not handle the IRS investigation, says Rep. Salmon. He is exactly right.
Independent counsel “not influenced by this Administration” should investigate. “We’re gonna get the job done.”
“Now is the time for tax reform.” Correct.
Jenny Beth is now introducing Rep. Matt Salmon (R-AZ). He has a bill for constitutional term limits.
He says the Tea Party is “the heartbeat of America.”
Jenny Beth is introducing Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC), who is taking on the IRS with a bill.
“I work for you.” Right on, Congressman.
Over 100 criminal probes for stimulus spending, and the head of the EPA used a fake alias. The fake alias got an AWARD from the EPA.
And now the IRS is targeting conservatives.
Rep. Steve King (R-IA) says we should abolish the IRS. “None of the IRS’ business how much money you make.”
Right on Congressman — if the NSA is spying on us, to intimidate us, it’s “freakier” than George Orwell ever envisioned.
Chairman Camp says his committee has fought for answers from the IRS for two years. Systemic targeting of Tea Party groups happened.
“We will get the answers. It will take time.”
We will restore freedom, and we will restore the Constitution. The goals of the Tea Party since its inception 4.5 years ago.
Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI), Chairman of the Ways & Means Committee, is leading the fight against the IRS scandal. He is speaking now.
“We will not be intimidated.” Right on, Jenny Beth. We DO live in a republic, and the law should be applied equal. “Government bullying” will not be allowed.
We’ll “stand up, speak out, and shine a light” on their corruption. Exactly.
National Coordinator Jenny Beth Martin just pointed out that the IRS was turned into a weapon against the people — even beyond its 73,000 pages of tax code.
