Susan Jones at CNSNews.com noted that on Monday night, conservative lawyer and radio host Mark Levin told Fox News's Sean Hannity that the emerging scandal over politics at the IRS exposes "the passivity and timidity of Congress."
"The fact is, a year ago Congress should have been calling witnesses before their committees, should have placed them under oath, should have been pursuing possible perjury claims and should have gotten to the bottom of this before the election cycle ran out." Levin has routinely found House Speaker John Boehner to be too passive with Team Obama.
"Why, for the life of me, these committee chairman now are beating their chests and they're talking about their hearings they will conduct, why for the life of me they didn't do this a year ago is very troubling."
Levin denounced the entire Obama adminstration: "Folks, it's real world. The IRS is out of control, the Department of HHS with Obamacare is out of control. The Agriculture Department with the scandal, with the payoffs to different groups, is completely out of control. The Interior Department and oil drilling -- the government is big, it's bloated, it's getting more and more powerful -- and if you believe in liberty, you better start paying attention."
On his radio show Monday night, Levin explained how his Landmark Legal Foundation has worked over the past year to expose the IRS and pushed for action with the Inspector General inside the Treasury Department for tax administration. The IG's report on the IRS spurred the scandal to be leaked out, he's guessing.
