Congressman Tim Ryan Issued the following statement in response to allegations that the IRS has targeted and investigated Republican and other Conservative non-profit organizations:
"The credibility of our government, especially among those who collect our revenues, must be above political considerations. The targeting of Republican non-profit groups by the IRS is simply an outrageous act, and those responsible must be held accountable. This is the kind of behavior that undermines the credibility of the entire system. I believe that government can and should make the lives of our citizens better--and there is no place for an agency that should be non-partisan to act any other way. Any act by the IRS that erodes public confidence needs the closest of scrutiny."
