GOP Congressman Mike Kelly Receives Standing Ovation After He Rips IRS Commissioner

REP. MIKE KELLY (R-PA): This has nothing to do with political parties.
This has to do with highly targeted groups. This reconfirms everything
the American public believes. This is a huge blow to the faith and
trust that the American people have in their government. Is there any
limit to the scope where you folks can go? Is there anything at all?
Is there any way that we could ask you is there any question that you
should have asked?

My goodness. How much money do you have in your wallet? Who do you get
emails from? Whose sign do you put up in your front yard? This is a
tax question? And you don't think that's intimidating? It's sure as
hell intimidating. And I don't know that I got any answers from you
today. And I don't know that -- what Mr. George said is great work --
but you know what? There's a heck of a lot more that has to come out
in this. Any anybody that sat here today and listened to what you had
to say, I am more concerned today than I was before, and the fact that
you all can do just about anything you want to anybody?

You know, you can put anybody out of business that you want. Any time
you want. I gotta tell you. You could talk about how you're a horribly
run organization, if you're on the other side of the fence, you're not
giving that excuse. And the IRS comes in, you're not allowed to be
shoddy, you're not allowed to be run horribly, you're not allowed to
make mistakes, you're not allowed to do one damn thing that doesn't
come in compliance, and if you do, you're held responsible right then.
I just think the American people have seen what's going on right now
in their government. This is absolutely an overreach and this is an
outrage for all Americans.
