As Congress tries to get to the bottom of the IRS scandal involving the targeting of Tea Party and conservative groups, New York Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley, a member of the Ways and Means Committee, is accusing Republicans of playing politics.

“Unfortunately what you’re seeing is a breakdown in the process. It’s about partisanship once again and trying to somehow link this to the White House,” he said on Jansing & Co. “It’s the same old, same old—exactly what people are really angry about what’s happening in Washington today.”

Crowley says there should be as many hearings as it takes to learn the truth about the IRS abuse. But he’s urging Republicans to put politics aside.

“We need to stop the political gamesmanship and ask the questions, get the answers and then fix the system.”
