From Senator Rand Paul:

Today, Senate Democrats placed a hold on Sen. Rand Paul’s recent resolution that condemns the targeting of Tea Party groups by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and calls for an investigation into this practice.

“This resolution is not about Republican vs. Democrat or conservative vs. liberal. It is about arrogant and unrestrained government vs. the rule of law. The First Amendment cannot and should not be renegotiated depending on which party holds power,” Sen. Paul said. “Each senator took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, yet Senate Democrats chose to block my resolution and thus refused to condemn the IRS for trampling on our First Amendment rights. I am incredibly disappointed in Washington’s party politics and I am determined to hold the IRS accountable for these unjust acts.”

The problem is exactly that it’s about an “arrogant and unrestrained government vs. the rule of law.” Unrestrained government doesn’t take kindly even to modest critiques, and Harry Reid is one of its most arrogant enforcers.

But, but, two days ago, Reid was condemning the IRS in his speech to the Senate! He doesn't want to make it official?
