Rep. Tammy Duckworth is my hero

In a House Oversight Committee hearing on June 26th, badass Illinois Democrat Tammy Duckworth spent 8 glorious minutes tearing IRS contractor Braulio Castillo a new one for taking advantage of government disabled veteran benefits. Apparently he broke his foot 30 years ago in military prep school and has been taking IRS contracts under “Disabled Veteran” status. The whole thing is fantastic, but if you’re short on time, start at the 5:15 mark. Big ups also to Chairman Darrell Issa for that “time well spent” quip there at the end.
