Resolution condemning the IRS actions submitted by Rand Paul is blocked by Senate Democrats

A resolution submitted by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) condemning the targeting of Tea Party groups by the Internal Revenue Service and calling for an investigation, was placed on hold by Senate Democrats Wednesday.

Dr. Paul responded in a press release, “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.”

In addition, Paul responded on his official Facebook page saying, “It is amazing that anyone, Democrat or Republican, would not want to investigate how the IRS targeted American citizens for their political beliefs. Something the IRS has even admitted. A direct violation of the 1st Amendment.”
