In the past few weeks, it seems as if you can't turn on the news without hearing about another drama in Washington. Much attention has been focused on the IRS' discrimination of specific groups, the attack on the United States consulate in Benghazi, and the Department of Justice's seizure of the phone records of Associated Press editors and reporters.
Earlier this week, I went on a Lincoln radio station to discuss these important issues. A well-functioning government must ensure that those in positions of influence are committed to serving with impartiality and fairness. Recent revelations that the IRS is targeting groups based on their religious or political affiliation have done much to undermine public trust. I discussed this, as well as the situation in Benghazi and the Department of Justice's seizing of reporter's phone records. I invite you to listen to the full interview here.
I also gave a speech before the House of Representatives about these issues as well as the seemingly forgotten Department of Health and Human Services' discrimination against religious freedom and rights of conscience. I invite you to watch my speech below. Many of these concerns cross the political aisle. It is important that in each instance the truth is uncovered, and swift and appropriate actions are taken to help restore confidence in the impartiality, fairness, and competence of the federal government.
