Acting director of IRS resigns

President Obama announced Wednesday that Steve T. Miller, the acting commissioner of the IRS, had resigned in the wake of the controversy over the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups. In an angry statement in the White House, Obama said the IRS’s actions were “inexcusable and Americans are right to be angry about it and I’m angry about it.” He added, “I will not tolerate this type of behavior in any agency but especially the IRS given the power it has and the reach it has.”

OBAMA’S CHARM OFFENSIVE AT WINNING OVER WHITEHOUSE PRESS


NBC NEWS

By Jessica Taylor

Official Washington waits all year for this moment – the White House correspondents’ dinner – where journalists, politicians and celebrities rub elbows and party.

The decades-long ritual also presents a chance for a president to charm the media and the nation.

And President Barack Obama did not abandon the tradition at Saturday night’s dinner. But he delivered both praise and criticism of the media’s response to the terrorist attacks in Boston and the explosion at a fertilizer plant in Texas.

Addressing journalists and Hollywood elites in attendance alongside comedian Conan O’Brien, the president praised not just law enforcement in Boston and responders in the Texas explosion, but also print and broadcast reporters who took the time to get the story right.  FULL  ARTICLE

THIS JUST IN… $$$ AGREEMENT $$$


National News Alert

Congress approves spending measure to avert government shutdown

Congress has approved a short-term spending measure that averts the chances of government shutdown next month, locks in the across-the-board sequester cuts but blunts its impact for certain key agencies.

The House gave final approval Thursday on a broad bipartisan 318 to 109 vote to a continuing funding resolution that outlines spending through the Sept. 30 conclusion of the fiscal year.

The bill now goes to President Obama for his signature, ending a relatively smooth and drama-free process for a Congress that has repeatedly deadlocked on spending issues.
