IRS Official in Charge During Tea Party Targeting Now Runs Health Care Office
abcnews.com ^ | 5.15.13 | John Parkinson

Posted on 05/16/2013 4:20:49 PM PDT by Lou Budvis

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.

Great. Can you see it now....you've been diagnosed with a major illness and while doing the mountains of paperwork now required for treatment, you get a nasty-gram from the IRS demanding to know your political affiliation, who you've voted for since you first registered, who you associate with, how much money you have contributed to political organizations and to whom, and whether or not you ever intend to run for office. Of course permission for treatment will depend upon these answers you provide to the IRS.

Just great.

Go to the original page. The first comment (flagged as needing moderation) is “Obama needs to be impeached. Up vote if you agree.” The up ticker is rising like those debt clocks.

This woman should immediately fired, brought before a court of law, found guilty by a jury of her peers and sentanced to 15 years hard labor at a federal prison.

The remaining bureaucrats would notice something like that.

This story currently has huge headlines on Drudge—and deservedly so. It’s big news. The connection needs emphasizing.

I think this belongs in the Breaking News column, if the Moderators agree.

This is the same kind of chit that goes on at the Treasury dept.

New admin comes in, buncha big-wig bankers from Wall Street get cushy jobs.

Buncha people who used to work at Treasury go over to Goldman Sachs Morgan Chase wherever they end up.

It’s just wash, rinse, and repeat till you’re blue in the face and totally sick of it!

That would be a start. There is no way to undo the politicization of gov't agencies. Unionization of gov't employees started the slide, and now there is no way to put the toothpaste back in the tube. This is going to get messy.

Hahaha - when I did a web search for "Sarah Hall Ingram" I immediately turned up an obvious "wrong person", but, somehow... her apparel DOES make sense in this situation.

I suspect we have a few unmarried male Freepers who would be happy to assist in her "rehabilitation".

More seriously, the hubris of this Administration is just amazing. Did they really think they could “fire” the acting IRS commissioner (who won’t actually depart before he was going to leave anyway), and this guy Joseph Grant (appointed just 8 days ago(!!!) on May 8, 2013), and the veil would not be totally transparent to even the most dimwitted?

Did they think that no one would turn up this Ingram woman? It’s mind-boggling.

Pubs & conservatives in general need to pounce on this “connection” with Ms. Ingram, HARD, before the weekend, so it can stick in people’s minds for a few days.

A few days ago as the IRS scandal was unfolding I posted the following reply to an article that described the breathtakingly expensive computer sleuthing eqwhich caused the IRS officials brag that they could now literally conduct millions of profiles and dragnet the population to uncover people were presumably tax cheats because they were interested in horse racing. The potential danger of coupling the IRS with its tax powers to an expanded IRS with powers over healthcare, the most intimate affairs of our citizens, was becoming more actual than potential. The recent news of this appointment leads one to be even more suspicious of a conspiracy. The computer power installed in the bowels of the IRS makes potential all the more frightening. But we need not go there yet, the facts of the matter are damning enough. Here is the reply:

Obamacare Funded IRS Big Data

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3019590/posts

The left has contrived to install control over perhaps the two most intimate and vulnerable parts of life in the hands of an agency which is now known to be politically corrupt.

The IRS has been put in charge of policing Obama care and in the process it has evidently been equipped with all the cyborg tools it needs to monitor not just the payments, the insurance policies, but also treatment. At the same time the award of funding which was justified as the cost of policing Obama care has created an Orwellian digital Big Brother with the capacity to monitor not just our expenses but our hobbies and our preoccupations.

The intersection of these twin capacities to snoop is frightening in the potential but we now have real-time evidence that the IRS has already been exploited by leftists to intimidate the public and deny them their constitutional rights. The news tells us that the arch leftist Senator Chuck Schumer and other leftist senators, together apparently with some Democrat Congressman, have pressed the IRS in writing to be aggressive in reviewing conservative applications for 501(c)(3) status. Worse, the evidence is that the IRS has been targeting audits against individual newscasters who confront Obama with unwelcome questions. Allegations are now servicing that groups that do not conform to the administration's line on Israel are being similarly prejudiced.

Clearly, the computing power handed over to the IRS is awesome but entirely unregulated:

Privacy watchdogs and tax lawyers have voiced alarm that the Obama Administration empowering the IRS with the predictive power of “Big Data” was implemented without public hearings or publishing any privacy safeguards. They have warned that the Service is now engaging in “social audits,” signaling out horse-racing enthusiasts or sailboaters for special audits based solely on their lifestyles. By screening existing data for one million unique attributes, the IRS can develop profiles and target certain types of individuals by their behaviors.

Most American citizens react with fear that the mere mention of initials "IRS" because they are terrified that an arbitrary, unelected, but manipulable agency can and destroy their lives. Our Founding Fathers would no doubt worry that, beyond the price in individual anguish such an agency can cost us, it presents a real and present danger to our constitutional Republic because these powers vested in an agency which has shown itself to willing to break the law on behalf of one political party is inherently an instrument of oppression and tyranny.

The people will react because this can personally affect them but we patriots should be concerned for the survival of our constitutional democracy. It is difficult to avoid the temptation to see a conspiracy in all of this. Whether a conspiracy contrived to load all of this power into one agency and then have it subject to the manipulation of Democrats is not yet clear but there can be no question the Democrats in the Congress and in the White House have created a culture which permitted all this to occur. The outrageous statements of Julian Bond of the NAA CP serve to alert us that Democrats are circling the wagons by lining up their most reliable core constituency, African-Americans, and telling them the party line on this issue.

Whether this scandal touches Obama personally, I have no doubt that this is a scandal of corruption of the Democrat party. The scandal is cultural-we already know enough to know that. The suburban voters who are acutely concerned about the IRS should be made to understand that this is what you get when you vote Democrat. They should be made to understand that if they are to save their lifestyles, their homes, their doctors of their own choice, they must vote Republican.
