Nebraska’s United States Senators see a disturbing pattern emerging from the Obama Administration.
A series of revelations have rocked the administration. The Environmental Protection Agency released the personal information of 80,000 livestock producers, 3,500 from Nebraska. The Internal Revenue Service put conservative groups applying for tax exempt status under extra scrutiny, often delaying approval for months. The Department of Justice seized both the corporate and personal telephone records of nearly 100 reporters for the Associated Press.
All of that comes after more emerges on the administration’s response to the deadly attacks on a United State compound in Benghazi, Libya. The attack left four dead, including United States Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
All of it leaves Sen. Mike Johanns asking questions.
“What more is going on and what don’t we know about?”
Johanns tells Nebraska reporters during a conference call that he sees a pattern.
“Well, what we have here is clearly a culture of disregard for rule of law, stated policy and it appears to be plaguing all corners of the Obama Administration,” Johanns states.
Sen. Deb Fischer says President Barack Obama needs to step forward and be engaged. She says he must take responsibility for the action of this administration.
“This isn’t how government of a true democracy should be acting,” Fischer tells Nebraska reporters during her conference call. “It certainly is not how the United States government should be acting,”
