The real scandal in the IRS debacle is that rich donors are being shielded from taxes for giving to Charity that isn't charity. None of these groups that use large amount of funds on political lobbying should get tax exemptions.
They shouldn't have targeted the Republicans they should have targeted all of them. The President clearly isn't involved since the IRS is independent. Lets see if Congress has the balls to fix the law. I doubt it as incumbents have a real personal interest in shielding their donors.
The Republican tactic of paralyzing the President is going to leave the entitlement and tax code unchanged as the likelihood of any deal falls apart. It's even questionable if we will need to raise the debt ceiling this year. The stalemate on entitlement reform is a huge win for liberal Democrats.
Nicely done Republicans!
