    You really are a vampire. If you lived up here, you wouldn’t have to hide from the sun.

  2. myiq2xu says:

    Good, they started on time.

  3. myiq2xu says:

    “This is not a personnel problem”

    Levin looks like he was badly embalmed.

  6. swanspirit says:

    I think the Republicans should remain on every scandal until this Liar In Chief is out of office , or until the men in white coats come and drag him out of fetal position from under the desk in the oval office .

  7. foxyladi14 says:

    I doubt they will find him under the desk in the oval office .Allergies ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. myiq2xu says:

    Opening speechifying.

  9. DeniseVB says:

    Miller: I’m sorry.

  10. DeniseVB says:

    Miller: We made mistakes, really, really sorry.

  11. myiq2xu says:

    Steven Miller: “Our bad, all fixed now.”

  12. myiq2xu says:

    “I probably read it in the paper.”

  13. Lulu says:

    Miller is wiggling. Wearing two hats. I report to myself. He is still acting Commissioner and Obama is a liar. I don’t understand if I have to report violations of law or not. I am a vegetable.

  14. myiq2xu says:

    The Know Nothing Administration.

  15. Lulu says:

    We had a meeting I don’t remember. Then we looked and I wrote a memo. Let’s talk about it to be fair to ourselves. Then we forgot about it. “We” is the IRS.

  16. swanspirit says:

    I don’t know .. I will have to get back to you I don’t remember ..
    he is stealing all of Eric Holders lines

  17. Somebody says:

    My understanding is that the higher ups at IRS have regular, I believe weekly meetings. The meetings are with the commissioner and the deputy commissioners and the general counsel where hot button issues and policy matters are discussed. Surely there is some kind of record of those meetings. Surely Congress could access what records they have of those meetings. There should also be a trail of emails and memos.

    Some of this could have been conversations in the hallway, but you could even kind of figure that out from official records. Like if there was a question and then all of the sudden there is an understood answer or way to deal with it……somebody, somewhere discussed it.

  18. votermom says:

    Miller looks like the dad in American Pie.

  19. myiq2xu says:
  20. Somebody says:

    BTW Lulu did you see my question was answered about Joseph Grant. He worked for Dan Rostenkowski… can’t make this shit up!

  21. myiq2xu says:

    Miller’s memory improves when a Democrat asks the questions.

  22. votermom says:

    I wish Miller would say to Levin – We were just doing what you wrote us to do!

  23. votermom says:

  24. myiq2xu says:
  25. myiq2xu says:

    “A mix of folks”

  26. Lulu says:

    My understanding is that their organizationally chart is incomplete and leaves out the Obamacare unit. This Miller keeps talking about grouping cases for efficiency. They started this before the numbers of applications grew but the Dems in Congress were complaining because they were looking at them probably campaigning against them. He just lied about how many came in to be processed. No way that many can come in at once in 2009 or 2010.

    • Somebody says:

      Obamacare is or has been sort of an after thought. It’s difficult to work something like that into a big bureaucracy. I don’t believe the law really specifically addressed how it was to be worked into the agency. I think it’s been sort of moved around starting with a small team which has grown but is still rather small……..or so I’ve heard.

      • Lulu says:

        Then you draw a little bubble on the chart. Or make it a sub-group of a big group. You do not leave it out. It has been actively hidden so no one would inquire what the devil they were doing.

  27. Lulu says:

    IRS commissioners are supposed to be non-partisan for 5 year terms. This congresscritter does not seem to know this.

  28. myiq2xu says:
  29. DeniseVB says:

    Crowley(D) – Obama mad about this scandal, so there.

  30. myiq2xu says:
  31. DeniseVB says:

    Brady(R) – applicant visited by FBI terrorism, OSHA, IRS .Whoa!

  32. myiq2xu says:
  33. DeniseVB says:

    Brady – who sent them, I want a name.

  34. myiq2xu says:

    “I would be shocked, shocked.”

  35. Somebody says:

    Holy crap the story the Tx congressman told about the business owner can you imagine

  36. myiq2xu says:
  37. DeniseVB says:

    Rangel – Bush, Bush, Bush, all appointees. Wait, maybe an Obama one or two ?

  38. votermom says:

  39. DeniseVB says:

    If only the IRS scrutinized Obama’s donors like this. No way he raised another billion legally. Sigh.

  40. DeniseVB says:

    PAUL RYAN ….. swooooooooooooon. This should be a fun dissection.

  41. myiq2xu says:

    Vice President Ryan asking questions now.

  42. DeniseVB says:

    Ryan – reading off approved liberal groups to Miller, what were you’re code words for them?

  43. DeniseVB says:

    McDermott (D) – tea party is a far right group ??? ” I dislike the right” It’s Citizen United’s fault ! Opened the flood gates to far right wingnut groups.

  44. swanspirit says:

    Awww the IRS just made a boo boo

  45. DeniseVB says:

    Are the D’s getting more time or does it just seem that way ? LOL.

  46. votermom says:

    I like these yes or no questions from Nunes.

    Shorter Becerra (Dem-CA), sorry #IRS, our glorious leader threw you under the bus yesterday and so will I.

  51. myiq2xu says:
  52. myiq2xu says:
  53. DeniseVB says:

    Reichert (R) – I’m hearing a lot of I don’t knows.

  54. DeniseVB says:

    Miller must need a potty break by now, I’m having empathy cramps for him ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Lulu says:

      I’m not. I like the old “bad cop” ex-cop Republican guy. Who, who!!! told you? Nancy. What did Nancy say? I don’t remember.

      You can’t make this shit up.

  55. myiq2xu says:
  56. votermom says:

  57. swanspirit says:

    Miller cannot answer whether Congress deserves to know what he knows …. …..whew !

  58. swanspirit says:

    Miller should be held in contempt of congress , and the Democrats on the committee held as contemptible in Congress .

  59. DeniseVB says:

    Cspan’s monitering the #IRS and reading some of the tweets.

  60. HELENK says:


    David Burge โ€@iowahawkblog 22m

    If the IRS asks why you haven’t paid for the last 5 years, tell them “I was streamlining for efficiency.” #DavesTaxTips

  61. votermom says:

    dammit, got twitmo’d

    This Doggett guy seems ready to give Miller a Medal of Honor
