Karen Kenney - On IRS Abuses of Power-Breathtaking Testimony
Many of the witnesses who were heard weren't new to the public eye. Belsom appeared previously on CNN, discussing the same issues. Three of the witnesses (Eastman, Gerritson, and Kookogey) previously appeared on Fox News, which both previewed and covered the hearing today. But the breakout star was Kenney. In her opening statement, she outlined what she considered was at stake. I think the IRS needs to fix its labeling machine: We're the San Fernando Valley Patriots, not Occupy Oakland. I stopped the costly and exhausting IRS process in July 2012. We survive on my credit card and donations in our cake tin. Like patriots before us, we persevere. The voice of this Republic resides in our citizens, not in the tongue of government. More must grasp that self-evident truth. This dialogue is about the jackboot of tyranny upon the field of our Founding documents. To whisper the letters I-R-S strikes a shrill note on Main St., USA, but when this behemoth tramples upon America's grassroots, few hear the snapping sounds.
There's value in understanding the effect that the IRS' actions had on the organizations that weren't able to get the tax status they sought. Kenney had some serious rhetoric. How much she told us about the IRS is debatable.
The Republicans on the committee were impressed. "The testimony has been breathtaking," said Rep. Pat Tiberi of Ohio. Rep. Tom Price of Georgia called Eastman's testimony, "absolutely chilling."
