Intimidation and threats allegedly carried out by the Internal Revenue Service on Tea Party members is the latest black eye for a federal agency that is known for its harsh behavior. Pennsylvania Senator, Pat Toomey says, someone must be held accountable.
“Somebody needs to be fired there. This is totally beyond anything that’s acceptable.”
Toomey says, This episode certainly doesn’t seem like the kindlier and gentler I.R.S.
“I would find it disturbing if the I.R.S. were singling out liberal political organizations or any organizations based on what they believe or their political philosophy. Singling them out for extra scrutiny and punishment in the form of delayed recognition of their tax status. This is very, very disturbing.”
Toomey was a guest on the WNPV’s AM-Edition Tuesday morning with Darryl Berger

“They deserve protection of the Child Welfare System, not to be re-victimized by incarceration in the juvenile justice system.”
Leach adds, over the last 18 years 12-hundred to 16-hundred children have been arrested per year on prostitution crimes.
Montgomery County Commissioner Chairman, Josh Shapiro says, the county continues to look for ways to streamline it’s operation.
“We have 19 fewer departments today then when we took office about 15 or 16 months ago, not ask people for more tax revenue, but instead create efficiencies from the back end that don’t have a negative impact on people’s lives.”
Shapiro was a guest on Comment Please By Univest Monday afternoon. He says, the county is now projecting a budget surplus, is making pension contributions for the first time in five years and is addressing long term infrastructure issues that has been neglected for a decade.
