"...But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security..."

Rep. Mike Kelly, R-Pa., questions ousted IRS Chief Steve Miller, shredding his "testimony" to smithereens.  Then he makes an impassioned speech that garners applause and cheers form the gallery.

Among the comments he made:

  • “I have a grandson who’s afraid to get out of bed at night because he thinks there’s someone under the bed that’s going to grab him. And I think most Americans feel that way about the IRS.”

• “This kind of reconfirms that, you know what, they [the IRS] can do almost anything they want to anybody they want, anytime they want. This is very chilling for the American people.”

• “This is a Pandora’s Box that has been opened and I don’t think we can get the lid back on it.”

• “I don’t believe the White House just found out about this in a news report.”

• “I got to tell you, where you’re sitting, you should be outraged — and you’re not. The American people should be outraged, and they are.”

• “This reconfirms everything the American public believes! This is a huge blow to the faith and trust the American people have in their government!”

• “Is there any limit to the scope of where you folks can go?”
• “It’s sure as hell intimidating. And I don’t’ know that I got any answers from you today.”

• “I am more concerned today than I was before. The fact that you all can do just about anything you want to anybody. You know, you can put anybody out of business that you want anytime you want.”

• “And when the IRS comes in, you’re not allowed to be shoddy, you’re not allowed to be run horribly, you’re not allowed to make mistakes, you’re not allowed to do one damn thing that doesn’t come in compliance. If you do, you’re held responsible right then.”
