Party activists descending on Washington denouncing the IRS is targeting of them and other conservative groups senator can.
Kentucky senator Rand Paul he said founder of the -- Tea Party caucus was there -- us.
Unlike most Americans horrified.
That my government has gotten out of control and -- persecuting people for their religious.
And their political beliefs and it needs to end and it needs to end now.
It turns out that the government employee at the IRS who will not testify who will not help with the hearings.
It turns out she's been doing this for decades.
She was at the FDC -- Republican candidates.
That you need to quit and we'll leave you alone but you need to never run for office again she's been using this bullying nature of government.
And were sick and tired of government -- and we need to send them home.
That was yesterday now this morning senator Paul with -- announcer good morning you would welcome back warning bell you're talking about Louis -- -- do you think it stops with her.
Well you know what I'm worried about is that their media culture of corruption within this.
You know you have government unions which have gotten so large and they give all of their money to Democrats.
And so my question is are they not only politically active but are they using their day job to go after people that they disagree with politically.
And this is very troublesome you know about a year ago we had the EPA official who said well.
We should do like the Romans did we need to crucify five or six businessman when -- go to town to make sure there duly afraid of their government.
If that's what's going on within -- several million person government we need to be worried so you're saying this is institutional within the IRS.
I don't know but not only -- the people need to be fired there needs to be a special investigation from top to bottom.
And finding out RP.
People using their personal political beliefs to go after their enemies and this may originate at the top of the White House but it also may just be a culture.
Where you have union employees that are.
Traditionally giving their money to Democrats.
Who are also going to work and saying.
Hey what are not trying to get Republicans today wanna work as well yesterday you said anyone -- -- fire so -- S agents who should be higher.
Well I'd start by not hiring the 161000.
New agents that they're gonna hire to enforce Obama care.
If we had a much simpler tax code we would need many RS agents in fact.
If we had a flat income tax we just multiplied your income by 17%.
And you wrote down a number and that was -- your income tax return.
You would need agents because I think everybody would comply.
What do you think about the seventy million dollars announced -- -- reasons.
For employees of the IRS they say they're the required by law to give it because there union workers.
You know we would like to see the the opposite you know we would like to see people let go -- the RS a smaller workforce.
And I think dom the people who are in charge of doing their conferences I think -- -- there was over clothes and a hundred million dollar spent conference's the last two or three years.
That person ought to be getting a demotion.
And money taken away from them and not a rainbow you that you just mentioned a moment ago you don't -- starts of the bomber starts at the top of the White House -- your -- You know I think it's a culture of that may be the White House either explicitly or implicitly.
Is complicit in basically that there's a wink and a nod but there may not have been direct orders from the White House.
But I do know that something has to change that whether you're a Republican and a Democrat or independent.
Nobody wants a government that when your party loses an election.
That the other party uses government to target.
And maliciously go after their political opponents.
No American wants that another topic now immigration there's word that there could be another amendment on the senate side your side of congress.
That will complete 700 miles of border fencing.
They're double the amount of amount of border guards at 40000 new border agents.
It is that a -- you could support senator.
I'm for immigration reform what we have is broken and I've said repeatedly.
That I want to see border security.
First and that the immigration reform which I'm in favor of is dependent on border security.
So my man that would say to congress you get to vote each year and that reform progresses slowly.
This event but I don't think we'll do that I don't think it will stop the reform waiting on border security.
It allows the reforms to go ahead.
And tries to get border security -- I think they should be dependent upon each other so -- -- that happens I'm not sure I can support I'm gonna put you down as a no unless we hear otherwise.
We'll -- senator thank you Rand Paul from the -- and have.
