Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — Members of the Tea Party Patriots say the IRS needs to be shut down.
A handful of people protested outside of the local IRS office.
They said it's shameful that the IRS-targeted groups like theirs, which is made up of middle-class Americans.
Some of them placed the blame on government in general, while others said President Obama should never have let this scandal happen.
The local Tea Party group pointed out that the country survived for more than a century without the Internal Revenue Service, and it could survive without it again.
