Marco Rubio Not Really Paying Attention

May 13, 2013

Marco Rubio is so upset about this whole IRS scandal that he has penned a strongly worded letter to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew. He of course also put out a press release about his letter, he is so very concerned. Rubio is demanding that the President ask for the IRS Commissioner’s head resignation.

it is clear the IRS cannot operate with even a shred of the American people’s confidence under the current leadership. Therefore, I strongly urge that you and President Obama demand the IRS Commissioner’s resignation, effectively immediately. No government agency that has behaved in such a manner can possibly instill any faith and respect from the American public. 

There’s just one problem: there currently is no IRS Commissioner. Daniel Shulman, a Bush appointee by the way, resigned in November. Just another example of how it’s sometimes better to be accurate, rather than first.

    Let’s see…

    I’m an official in the IRS who decides which groups get scrutinized…

    A veritable flood of applications for tax-exempt status are coming in from organizations whose very raison d’être is opposition to paying taxes…

    Do I just just let them slide or do I treat them with some suspicion?

    It should be a no-brainer.

    Speaking of no-brainers, this is Marco Rubio we’re talking about.

      P.S.: This reminds me of the time all those federal prosecutors were fired…
