May 15, 2013 - 7:26 am
This morning, House GOP leadership held a press event to discuss their agenda. A vote to repeal ObamaCare is once again on the table.
At the end of his remarks, Speaker of the House John Boehner briefly addressed the IRS scandal. Boeher said that he isn’t interested in seeing IRS officials resign over the agency’s deliberate targeting of conservative and Tea Party groups.
“There are laws in place to prevent this type of abuse,” Beohner said, adding that someone made a “conscious choice” to target these groups in violation of the law. The Speaker insisted that Americans need to know who those people are.
“My question is, who’s going to jail over this scandal?” a visibly angry Boehner asked, before turning the podium over to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.
