Key lawmaker says IRS problems go beyond embattled chief

Washington (CNN) –– Internal Revenue Service chief Steven Miller may have been among the first people to be blamed for a scandal now consuming the agency and buffeting the Obama administration, but at least one powerful House Republican is confident he won't be the last.

"This isn't just going to end up being just one person's responsibility," House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp told CNN on Thursday in an exclusive interview.

    Surprise, surprise, another Republican attacking Obama for not firing the Bush appointee Shulman......maybe a Bush appointee wanted Obama to get elected...................NOT...................probably more a case of individuals slowing up questionable "Human Services" applicants to get tax exempt status....Remember for every phony organization that gets tax exempt status, it just adds more to the pot necessary for those who actually pay taxes.....Much ado about nothing.

    From Clinton on Benghazi to Miller at the IRS, how many people are going to take the fall for this failed and utterly corrupt president before they start telling about his involvement? Worst president ever. Most corrupt president ever.

    I hope this committee checks into all mail, e-mail and phone calls received by the IRS, from both Democrats and Republican and let see who is really behind these actions, place those at fault in jail for breaking the law.

    Instead of fixing the economy and reducing unemployment, Congress is distracted by political witch hunts.

    Absolutely. It shows that the administration can get away with politicizing things that should not be politicized, in order to win elections.

    Camp sounds like the conservatives who post here: a lot of assertions with no actual proof. All this is not merely a distasteful abuse of free speech, but it's starting to resemble an attempt at a media-fueled coup detat.

    Congressional Democrats: PUSH BACK!

    IMO, Prosident Obama kept too many bush appointees around and they stuck it to him. The people who have retired/are retiring – Schulman included – should be made aware that they're not off the hook and they should expect to be subpoenaed sometime in the near future.
