It’s time to take the gloves off.
House GOP leadership is either powerless, gutless, or an accomplice to Democrats.
Two excellent articles lay it out: this administration is hell-bent on using the IRS, EPA, and other federal agencies to neutralize/eliminate groups fighting for American ideals.
And many articles have laid out Obama’s willingness to twist or ignore existing law.
The Wall Street Journal article focuses on illegal IRS activities against conservative groups, and the proof? It’s in this enlightening pull-quote…
“The current rules governing 501(c)(4)s have existed, unchanged, since 1959. Prior to 2010 the IRS processed and approved tax-exempt applications in fewer than three months with no apparent befuddlement.”
What changed in 2010? The midterm election beating Democrats took, powered by Tea Party groups, who fought back against the Big-Government abuse headed your way.
McCarthy’s NRO article makes a definitive case, with one simple question: “Why is the (GOP) House (of Representatives) underwriting all this suffocating government about which members of the House (GOP) incessantly complain?” (emphasis added)
He argues that – Constitutionally – the House controls funding, thus, can halt abuse.
“Under the Constitution, the House must initiate any spending the government does. All of the agencies on which President Obama must depend to push through his agenda depend on the House to underwrite their operations. If the House dramatically reduces their budgets, they lose much of their capacity not only to harass Obama’s critics but to facilitate his imperial presidency.“
If so, the House Republicans and their leadership ARE.NOT.POWERLESS.
Which leaves Gutless…or ACCOMPLICE…on the table.
They continually mouth ‘destroying America’ and ‘trampling our Constitution’ platitudes…
…but, if such dire consequences are imminent, yet refuse to use their Constitutionally given ‘check-&-balance’ powers to halt such a disaster…we’re left with this:
If they’re gutless…who needs them?
And, if they’re an ACCOMPLICE…
…they don’t need you.
