Rep. Cummings and the IRS: Washington politics to the core

June 12, 2013

Baltimore Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings says the investigation of the IRS has been concluded ("Cummings calls for end to IRS probe," June 9).

Yet only last week Congressman Cummings was outraged because the people on his street were struggling while money was being wasted by the IRS. He sounded like he wanted to learn who was responsible.

This week he has decided his people in Baltimore don't need to know who was responsible. Did someone tell him to back off?

This is typical Washington politics. Screw the people and protect those responsible for wasting our tax dollars.
