If you watched Paul Ryan or any of the other House Republicans grilling IRS Commissioner Koskinen on Friday, you might have started to feel sorry for the embattled public servant. Perhaps that is what the Democratic members of the House Budget Committee were feeling.
That would explain the endless love doled out by Reps. Earl Blumenauer (Oregon), Xavier Bercerra (California), Jim McDermott (Washington), Mike Thompson (Maryland.), Lloyd Doggett (Texas), Ron Kind (Wisconsin), Richard Neal (Massachusetts) and Joe Crowley (New York) — all Democrats who chose not to investigate the missing emails, but instead to spend their time saluting the hard working men and women of the Internal Revenue Service.
The folks at Grabien Media took note of this and assembled the following IRS Love Fest.
(Note: This post was edited to correct the identity of a Rep. from Texas. Lloyd Doggett is seen, not Rep. Kenny Marchant. We apologize for this error.)
