Tea Party Protest Against IRS

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The Tea Party branch in Billings joined other Tea Partiers across the country Tuesday to protest the extra scrutiny given to conservative groups by the Internal Revenue Service, or IRS.

The Federal tax authority has been under criticism recently for scrutinizing groups with words such as "Tea Party" or "Patriots" in their name, as well as groups advocating various conservative causes. People at the protest said they simply want the federal government to treat them fairly.

"The governor always talk about fairness, especially in this current administration, so we'd like them to be fair to the Tea Party." said Eric Olsen.

Steven Miller, the acting IRS Commissioner, has already resigned from his position because of the scandal.

    Susanne Rodell faced a difficult situation. Hail storm damage to her roof led to an insurance claim being filed. Rodell picked a local contractor to fix her roof, but mother nature did not cooperate. While the roofing company was in the middle of fixing her roof, a weekend of rain caused water damage to dry wall and ceilings within the house.
