Watch Rep. Paul Ryan Question NOM's Chairman About The IRS Scandal!

 

Dear Marriage Supporter,

"Welcome to Washington."

That's how Rep. Paul Ryan begins his statements in last week's hearing about the ongoing IRS Scandal.

His comments followed Rep. McDermott's, who incredibly claimed that marriage supporters shouldn't be allowed to participate in the public square because (unlike the Human Rights Campaign, Freedom to Marry and Planned Parenthood, I suppose) we were "highly political" and "entrenched in some of the most controversial political issues in the country."

Thankfully, Rep. Ryan cut through the political gamesmanship and got to the heart of the issue: the IRS is claiming the power to determine which ideologies are in the public interest!

What's more — NOM's story, presented by our Chairman, John Eastman, has become, in the words of Gov. Mike Huckabee on his radio show recently, "the smoking gun" in the IRS scandal.

Please take a moment to listen to Rep. Ryan's questions and comments during last week's incredible hearing:

It's always disappointing to see some representatives like McDermott attempt to make marriage partisan when it is not. We proudly collaborate with many democrats who support marriage. In fact, during the same hearing Rep. Rangel (D-NY) proposed working together with Eastman to help make sure the mess at the IRS is cleaned up.

And make no mistake — Dr. Eastman's testimony about NOM's story is our best chance yet to get to the bottom of what happened inside the IRS — and to find out who may have known about it outside the IRS and was an accomplice to the crime.

Please watch this brief video of Rep. Paul Ryan's questions to NOM's Chairman, Dr. John Eastman, and listen to the incredibly powerful responses he gives.

And then, please consider making a generous contribution to support our work to defend marriage and the rights of ordinary Americans like you to speak and organize freely and participate in the political life of our great nation.

For marriage and freedom.

    Government run a muck. We have gotten what we voted for over and over again. Shame on this administration and any administration who perpetrates this heavy handed injustice on the people of the USA. And shame on the main stream media who has crawled into bed with corrupt politicians to further their cause. Germany (just to name one) never thought fascism would happen there, but as soon as politicians, media, and military got in step - boom, murder, mayhem, genocide, rape, destruction, confiscation of goods, property and human, ghettos, concentration camps, extermination camps, work camps, etc. Think it can't happen here??? It can and it will if we don't stop it now!

    God is sovereign. The IRS is not. Thank you NOM for keeping us educated and sending out these emails, thank you Brian Brown for appearing in the media and being a voice for those of us who believe in marriage as defined by God.
    I highly recommend the new book "Leadershift" by Orrin Woodward and Oliver DeMille. The US Government must be limited.

    God bless Sen Ryan and all those standing for the truth these days, where 80% of the people look the other way and don't get involved according to Glenn Beck and other sourses, 10% are attempting to do something good to expose the 10% doing evil. When good people say nothing evil florishes and the darkness continues. Mary Ellen's comments where right on and then some. The light exposes darkness and it is happening little by little, thank God but we need to keep aware and alert at all times. Takes focus focus and more focus.

    I watched the hearings and could not believe what I heard from McDermott. Thank you Congressman Ryan for setting that cockroach straight. Hope he is sent back to Seattle!
