SEN. TED CRUZ (R-TX): I want common sense immigration reform to pass. Our immigration system is broken and I think there are large bipartisan majorities that want it to pass, but this bill has two major problems. Number one, it doesn’t stop illegal immigration. If anything it makes the problem worse by not securing the border and by incentivizing
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Here's why this has legs: Number one, as Kirsten says, everybody is outraged. Everybody knows what the IRA can do, and everybody's afraid of it. Second, because you now have somebody that's going to plead the Fifth, in a court of law, the jury is not supposed to interpret that as hiding something, but this isn't a court of law,
"This is probably the worst possible outcome from the White House point of view," CNBC's John Harwood said on Lois Lerner's decision to plead the Fifth at Wdnesday's House Oversight hearing on the IRS probe.

JAY CARNEY: What is it that you're trying [to do]? HANS NICHOLS: I'm trying to figure out how people in this building knew what they knew and when they knew it. And we seem -- CARNEY: Let's step back. NICHOLS: You just dinged us for not asking precise questions. Here I am asking precise questions and you’re acting like I’m petulant.
BILL O'REILLY: I want you to weigh in on James Rosen. Rosen investigating a story about North Korea retaliating to U.N. sanctions by testing missiles. Alright? That's what he was doing.

GUTFELD: "This administration is as transparent as a burqa. Right now, the whole IRS story was supposed to 'gee whiz we didn't know anything about it.' Now, we find out that it's more chorographed than Cats. That question was planted. They had a discussion before they planted that question. It's incredible and everybody keeps saying how they
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I just think it's incredible that he can stand up there and say that, he's a fierce defender of the First Amendment which he's said before as the press secretary of an administration that's spying on reporters. And if he's so offended by this, who has been fired? Why are heads not rolling over this? I actually haven't seen
LAURA INGRAHAM: So, your prediction or your advice to Marco Rubio given everything you've seen in Washington. What should he do now? BILL KRISTOL: He should walk away from it. He should say, I've made a good-faith effort, but you know what, this is not a piece of legislation. INGRAHAM: They're not operating in good faith on the other side. He
MAJOR GARRETT, CBS NEWS: On Sunday, Dan Pfeiffer said that one thing Republicans do when they lack an agenda is try -- I’m quoting him directly -- “try to drag Washington into a swamp of partisan fishing expeditions, trumped-up hearings and false allegations.” Can you describe what he’s talking about?

SEN. SHELDON WHITEHOUSE (D-RI): So, you may have a question for me: Why do you care? Why do you, Sheldon Whitehouse, Democrat of Rhode Island, care if we Republicans run off the climate cliff like a bunch of proverbial lemmings and disgrace ourselves? I’ll tell you why. We’re stuck in this together. We are stuck in this together. When cyclones
Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) says the IRS should not be in charge of implementing or enforcing the Affordable Care Act.
BRIT HUME: In the matter of Fox News correspondent James Rosen, the Justice Department has gone where federal prosecutors have rarely, if ever, gone before.
