Some Republicans believe it's going to take more than the resignation of the Internal Revenue Service's acting director to rebuild trust between the agency and the people.

That's after the IRS admitted some low-level employees may have unfairly targeted certain conservative groups, particulary those with the words "Tea Party" or "Patriots" in their names.

In a news release Wednesday night, senior Republican Georgia U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss said,

"Despite the resignation of the acting IRS administrator, President Obama continues to search for a scapegoat for his own administration's misdeeds.  This insufficient action comes more than two years after this offensive abuse of power. Meanwhile, the American public continues to lose trust in a government that this president seeks to give even more power."

The statement came Wednesday after the president addressed the nation, officially announcing the resignation of acting IRS head Steven Miller.
