    Think Progress caught up with Iowa Congressman Steve King at CPAC, where King took credit for being at the forefront of the anti-IRS movement and seemed to give some justification to the actions of Suicide pilot Joseph Stack TP : Do you think this attack, this terrorist attack, was motivated at all by a lot of the anti-tax rhetoric that's popular in America right now?

    Just because the Republicans and the terrorists both want to bring down the president and both seem to be working against the best interests of the country doesn't mean they are actually working together. That would be a scandal.
