The hard working IRS bureaucrats then lied to Congress about a whole series of mysterious server crashes while they ignored back up records. When the records were recovered, official emails revealed a deep seated hatred for the Right animated the conspiracy of political repression. After the hearings the House committee sent 3 criminal referrals to Obama's DOJ which simply ignored them.
I read and watched the hearings including the original investigator's testimony.
It was as I said. The fact you think it was something else testifies to your own fantasy world where a propaganda machine fills in for the ...real ...news.

Lois Lerner came out HERSELF and admitted they were targeting conservative groups that were applying for non-profit status.

Salty probably never saw that on YouTube, therefore it didn't happen.

I asked if you could show me where the gov't is giving money to corporations. These are articles about a tax cut.

A tax cut by definition is the gov't demanding less of your money than prior to the cut. This is not giving money to anyone, it is demanding less that they demanded prior.

So again, please show where the gov't gave money to big corporations.

Apparently the courts saw it differently.

They were targeting them, then auditing them, based only on names that might be ring wing.

You don't see a problem with the federal government doing this? Even the left wing courts saw a problem with it.

What's next? Should the IRS target people of different race and gender next?

How about progressives? can we get the IRS to target them like the Tea Party? I'm sure you don't see a problem with that, right?

Maybe they will find some problems with the progressives bookkeeping.
