We wrote Tuesday about Senator Rand Paul’s resolution condemning the IRS for attacking tea party groups. In a not so shocking partisan move, Senate Democrats have blocked Sen. Paul’s resolution. Apparently Senate Democrats do not feel that the IRS’ actions are concerning enough for the resolution.

Paul is quoted as saying “This resolution is not about Republican vs. Democrat or conservative vs. liberal. It is about arrogant and unrestrained government vs. the rule of law. The First Amendment cannot and should not be renegotiated depending on which party holds power,” Sen. Paul said. “Each senator took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, yet Senate Democrats chose to block my resolution and thus refused to condemn the IRS for trampling on our First Amendment rights. I am incredibly disappointed in Washington’s party politics and I am determined to hold the IRS accountable for these unjust acts.”
