IRS Official in Charge During Tea Party Targeting Now Runs Health Care Office
ABC News ^ | May 17, 2013 | John Parkinson, John Portnoy

Posted on 05/17/2013 2:54:16 AM PDT by Makana

The Internal Revenue Service official in charge of the tax-exempt organizations at the time when the unit targeted tea party groups now runs the IRS office responsible for the health care legislation. Sarah Hall Ingram served as commissioner of the office responsible for tax-exempt organizations between 2009 and 2012. But Ingram has since left that part of the IRS and is now the director of the IRS’ Affordable Care Act office, the IRS confirmed to ABC News today. Her successor, Joseph Grant, is taking the fall for misdeeds at the scandal-plagued unit between 2010 and 2012. During at least part of that time, Grant served as deputy commissioner of the tax-exempt unit.

“Don't fall for the misdirection of “firing” John Grant from the IRS. The true villain has already been rewarded.”

Absolutely correct. My guess is that they knew something was coming at them regarding the IRS, and they just wanted to get their ducks in a row preemptively. So, you take your IRS ‘enforcer’, Ingram, out of the line of fire and into a job where she can continue to do your bidding. Concomitantly you appoint into her vacated position a guy who you consider expendable, so that you can sack him as a sacrificial lamb when things heat up.

The GOP doesn't deserve to exist anymore if they don't shine a very bright light on this woman and this bait and switch. They should be screaming that she is not to be trusted with control of American healthcare, and that Obama is completely insincere with his outrage if he keeps this woman in government in any capacity.

Everybody knows this is a promotion except the media. I just shake my head when I hear so called conservative talkies get excited about the media “going bad on Obama”. It’s time for a reality check.

See ! See what happens when our fearless leader goes golfing and forgets his Blackberry ? Well now that he’s back on the job we won’t have to worry anymore. Shame on those nasty people who took advantage of his absence by crushing groups critical of our great and fearless one. We know if he was there he would have nothing to do with their nefarious and illegal activities. He said so and we believe everything he says and does.

As the House goes hunting for bare using 410 shotguns leaving the 12 gauge (Select Committee) at home.

Sarah Hall Ingram is working in the Health Care office because that is the next Nexus point in which fascism will increase upon the US public through Obama care.

She should be interrogated,arrested, charged and tried.

Sarah Hall Ingram, the IRS executive in charge of the tax exempt division in 2010 when it began targeting conservative Tea Party, evangelical and pro-Israel groups for harrassment, got more than $100,000 in bonuses between 2009 and 2012.

More recently, Ingram was promoted to serve as director of the tax agency’s Obamacare program office

Here's a little about Ms Ingram ". . . began her career with the IRS in the former Tax Litigation Division in 1982."

1982? Graduated college late 1970s? I think she has a law degree from Georgetown after that.

That puts her into this group of whom I love to post pictures. Ladies and Gentlemen, the New Normal:

the ideological parents of this guy:

Armed with arbitrary power to take your wealth and your life, Sarah Hall Ingram is the most powerful person in the world.

We still have the form of a constitutional republic, though it is but a hollow shell. In America, no judge, congressman, senator or president could assume the mantle of despot; it could only be assumed someone outside the limits of the Constitution.

Oh great. So guess which groups, and which members of said groups, will get preferential treatment at the one-size-fits-all ObamaCare state exchanges you'll have to go to?

I haven’t seen or heard this - but it needs to be out there. If this problem isn’t resolved to our satisfaction...

When the other political party takes charge, there will be hell to pay.

Liberal individuals will be audited, harassed and jailed by IRS. It will take years to overturn it - if it ever is. Loved ones will be audited, harassed, and jailed too.

Members of liberal/democrat groups will have their health care stalled and their private information shared. Their loved ones will have their information released and problems will arise with their health insurance.

This will not end well for them.

There are only two talkers that have brains - Levin and Rush.

Here is exactly what is wrong with the gutless, spineless, gonadless, futile GOP-e. They have had how many opportunities to DEFUND OBAMACARE since their takeover of the House in Nov 2010? What have they done? Continue to hold kabuki theater votes on REPEALING Obamacare when they openly admit it doesn't stand a snowball's chance of every becoming law. What happened to the real plan to disrupt OBAMACARE? Gutless is all I can say - and then they reelect the Weeper in Jan 2013. GUTLESS

Published on Mar 11, 2011 House Switchboard 202-224-3121 Vote NO on the continuing resolution that WILL NOT DEFUND OBAMACARE. Official Levin Surge.
