During a House Ways and Means Committee hearing Tuesday, six witnesses were called to testify about their groups being targeted by the Internal Revenue Service.

The witnesses were from various conservative, Tea Party, pro-life, pro-marriage, and other patriotic groups.

Although the Democrats on the committee were given the opportunity to call up a witness from a liberal group targeted by the IRS, they declined, according to Ways and Means Chairman David Camp, R-Mich.

“I do want to note that the minority was given the opportunity to call up a witness but did not present a witness that had been affected by taxpayer activity, by IRS activity, so that’s why there is no minority witness at the table today,” Camp explained during the hearing.
