Sen. Paul Proposes Resolution Condemning IRS

May 14, 2013

Sen. Rand Paul today proposed a resolution condemning the targeting of Tea Party groups by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and calling for an investigation. 

"The IRS has been using taxing power as a political tool to bully these conservative groups and this type of intimidation is a major violation of our U.S. Constitution," Sen. Paul said. "This act of discrimination should not be tolerated and I demand a formal investigation seeking criminal charges against any individuals who authorized or were involved in targeting people of the United States based on their political views."

"The president has deemed this inexcusable, yet actions speak louder than words. It is time for President Obama and his Administration to act and it is our duty as Americans to hold them accountable," he continued.

A copy of the resolution can be found HERE. Below is an appearance by Sen. Paul on Fox News last night, discussing the resolution.
