U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) released the following statement regarding the President's announcement of the resignation of Acting Internal Revenue Service commissioner Steven Miller.
"Tonight's announcement was a necessary first step. However, it remains clear that the President has not fully grasped the wide-ranging effects of the IRS scandal as it took nearly a week for him to act. This is not something that can be swept under the rug -- we need permanent, systematic fixes to ensure that it does not happen again. The American people deserve better than what they have seen from the White House over the past week, and the President has a responsibility to cooperate with Congressional investigations as we work to get to the bottom of this."
