(AURN) -- A partisan group of House lawmakers says the IRS should face more consequences for giving tougher treatment to conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status. Republican Dave Camp, who chairs the House Ways and Means Committee, says the ''agency has become too big, too powerful and too intrusive.''
At a committee hearing into the targeting today, Democrat Sander Levin said the head of the IRS division that makes decisions about tax-exempt groups should be "relieved of her duties.''
Comments came during a grilling of the ousted acting IRS commissioner Steven Miller.
