Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) took to the House floor, Thursday for a one minute rapid-fire speech that gave the IRS the tongue-lashing of a lifetime.
He started out by saying that “there’s a hunger in this country for things that binds us together,” for instance; “Americans agree that the IRS should never target citizens. Americans agree that the government should tell us the truth.”
He continued, “the IRS has offered eight different explanations for targeting our fellow citizens.
If we, Madam Speaker, changed our story to the government eight different times, we would be called – inmates. We can’t lie to government, therefore the government shouldn’t lie to us.”
Obama didn’t escape his wrath, either: “No president should ever say there’s not a smidgen of corruption while an investigation is ongoing!” Gowdy exclaimed.
