Shocking, but not surprising: “The House Ways and Means Committee [yesterday] released emails from Lois Lerner, former head of the Internal Revenue Service’s tax-exempt organizations division, in which she uses a vulgar anatomical expletive to refer to conservatives and says ‘it’s our own crazies that will take us down,'” Heritage reports. You can read the emails in question, dated 2012, via the Ways and Means committee. Lerner criticized, among others, people claiming “we’ve bankrupted ourselves” and “we’ll never be able to pay off our debt and are going down the tubes.” Memo to Lerner: It is out-of-control government bureaucrats and the politicians who enable them who threaten to take us down.
