Thanks very much -- first they -- targeting conservative groups looking to become tax exempt now.
The IRS is ready a -- seventy million dollars worth of bonuses to employees.
But where are they getting that kind of money whatever happened to the sequester remember that -- now with his reaction -- -- Chair of the House Budget Committee.
Paul Ryan of Wisconsin couldn't congressman -- -- good morning Gretchen I don't that's fantastic.
Thanks for being our guest all right so you know all about budgets and -- in the numbers of what you make of these bonuses that are gonna go to the iris union implement what.
Look what we're seeing is the arrogance and abuses of big government we are seeing big government in practice.
We know from our IRS investigation already from the Ways and Means Committee that this wasn't a few.
Rogue agents in Cincinnati this is a systemic pattern of abuse of power directed from Washington by the I arrest targeting people based upon their political and religious beliefs.
And now they're gonna get 78 million dollars in bonuses.
At a time when government agencies are getting cuts -- at a time when we're doing furloughs at the Pentagon and other places.
It's outrageous hardworking taxpayers deserve better than this.
Unfortunately as I mentioned this what big government looks like in practice yet but I'm pet and now they're gonna get our health care records now -- arrests come October is going to be in charge more in charge of our health care system.
Yeah I was just gonna say that but also is gonna say do you think congressman.
That we will ever get the answers as to where that information and directive came from with regard to targeting those groups because that's what the American people really want to know him.
I do think we will get the answer to that I'm part of that investigation is a member of the Ways and Means Committee it's going to take months to get through all of this.
We're getting lots of data that we have required that the -- send to us.
-- our investigators are in the midst of interviewing -- employees up and down the food chain we have a hearing next Thursday in the Ways and Means Committee where we -- -- acting deputy commissioner -- he's not the acting commissioner anymore because they haven't had a full time -- -- for such a long time.
And we're also getting lots of data that we're gonna -- through this we'll take us months to figure this out to see just how systemic it is and who ordered all of this targeting.
All right let's move on to.
Another controversial topic which is the immigration reform bill in the house we know that the senate has been working on something brings up to date on what the house is doing.
House is working on -- legislation as well the house is not going to bring up the senate legislation we're taking a different approach.
Hubble we want to make sure in the house is that we have real border security real traitors to make sure that we actually secure the border.
That we know who's coming and going in this country we have a broken legal immigration system that we have to fix.
We want people were coming his country to come in contribute to our economy contribute to society.
And -- so we think we can get this right having a system that honors the rule of law.
Having a system that rewards people who Obey the law.
Arm and hold people accountable who don't that's the kind of immigration system we need to have -- we try to -- -- an 86 didn't get it right that would try to fix -- in 96 we didn't get a right.
We want efficient effective immigration opponents actually lasting some ten years from now we don't have the same problem and that's why we're gonna slowly methodically in the house to trying get it right.
Right another a startling development yesterday when FBI director Mueller was asked by senator Grassley whether -- not drones are actually patrolling.
And flying around American soil and he emphatically said.
Yes it almost -- -- as though the senator was stunned by that answer what do you make of this new government surveillance revelation.
Well I don't know specifically where that is for instance in the immigration bill what we're looking at on the border is to put him drones in the border right.
And so you -- to police the southern border with with respect to the interior of the country.
That's an entirely different proposition so I would really like to know the specifics of this look in this 21 century -- We're going to see on some tension.
Between our civil liberties and national security -- and when that tension arises in my opinion you always have to air in the side of civil liberties.
That's with the NSA surveillance debates all -- -- of the patriot debate is all about.
Which is we believe in limited effective government in equality before the law -- -- is a good example.
Of people not being treated equally before the law and we want to make sure.
There with limited government you have equality before the law and with big government in the air music comes with -- we're not seeing that these days.
All right congressman all right and it's good to see you again off the campaign trail and and moving forward into the summer we'll see again sometime soon thanks much encrypt and take care.
