Another “trust in government” issue
I continue to hear politicians try to dismiss the IRS scandal as “not about Republicans or Democrats, but about trust in government”. Well as I said then, it is Republicans and Democrats who govern, so excuse me if I don’t share their “differentiation.” The IRS scandal is all about politics, and in this case, the misuse of the agency by a Democratic administration.
The administration that promised to be the most transparent in history uses covert government accounts to keep electronic mail from becoming public, according to a national news conglomerate that reports “the scope of using the secret accounts across government remains a mystery.”
And yes, this trust in government issue is again as political as the IRS. If your government won’t abide by its own rules, then there’s no basis for trust is there? Who or what is the agency in question in this particlar government trust issue? Why the Executive agency. Not some nameless bureaucrat in some faceless bureaucracy. Nope. Mr. “Most Transparant Administration Ever” – caught cheating.
