You can’t deny that Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Washington, has a point regarding the so-called IRS-Tea Party ‘scandal.’ Why did these overtly political outfits believe they were deserving of government subsidies? I would note again that the Roanoke Tea Party has deliberately avoided seeking 501(c)4 status. Could it be that they’re smarter than some other Tea Party groups?
And then watch how Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., responded. Does it strike you as grandstanding?
