Victims of IRS: You Asked For It

So says Democrat Rep. Jim McDermott of Washington.  Apparently not only did the Tea Party and other conservative groups that were victims of the IRS's over-reaching probe deserve the it, but that the IRS was justified in targeting the groups if the IRS did so based on what the groups stood for instead of on the words in their names.   McDermott told the witnesses, "the "mistake here was the staff used the names of the organizatiions instead of the work they do."

Rep. Paul Ryan wasn't having any of it and called out McDermott's ploy by saying to the witnesses, "So you're to blame...I guess that's the message."
