Rep. Paul Ryan: We're not getting straight answers on IRS

(CNN) - One flashpoint at Friday’s House hearing on IRS targeting of conservative political groups seeking tax-exempt status occurred between acting agency chief Steven Miller and Republican Rep. Paul Ryan.

The Wisconsin Republican and former vice presidential nominee was frustrated that Miller, who was briefed on the controversial IRS practices last May, failed to mention it in subsequent letters to Congress and in hearing testimony just two months later.

    This would be funny if it wasn't coming from one od the BIGGEST BADDEST liars in congress.
    Where do I begin. Oh yes, the ryan budget, the marathon time, the wash pots at a homeless shelter that are clean, getting rid of welfare but your family used it after your fathef's death. So many lies so little time I want to spend writing about them and you, you piece of slime!

    All I can say is that it is a damned good thing we have the press, because without it, no one in THIS "administration" would never know ANYTHING about what is going on under their "leadership." Everyone, including Obama, first learn of what is happening when the PRESS tells them it is happening... before that date is established by the record, they don't seem to know ANYTHING!!

    If Miller wants to take responsibility, and he has, send him to prison.

    Don't worry about it Ryan, we couldn't get any straight answers out of you and MittWitt either.

    The President has almost single-handedly fixed the economy with no help from the GOP, so creating scandals is their only means of justifying their pay checks. "Don't create jobs create scandals" is their new motto.
