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.

the guy that wouldn’t give out permits due to his dislike of your political views...
will now determine whether or not you receive health care
yea... it’s getting close to that time
“Job well done, now make sure those tea-partiers get no healthcare.”
Its the Chicago way!
"Happier than the IRS running health care".
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.
Corrupt to the top, this rotting fish administration.
The remaining bureaucrats would notice something like that.
Must be a “politically reliable” employee.
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.
My mother lost her job because she would not join the party. The NAZI party. The tales she tells.
I never thought I would even have to imagine such scenarios in this country in my lifetime.
You are correct! It's smokin'
This is the quote getting all the thumbs up: Dennis Miller, "The difference between Obama and Nixon is that Obama will require "I am not a crook" on a prompter."
Has anybody checked the logs to see when/if this lady got face time with Barry? Seems like she would in a role that critical to his agenda.
“I see here you’re a Tea Party activist. How bout that.
Oh by the way, your wife does not qualify for that heart operation.”
Looks like the original post was deleted, but first sub comment is seeing a fast uptick.
It was deleted (censored by ABC).
Liberal filth with more excuses for their thuggish behavior than Carter has liver pills...
Well, that’ll larn him! Down to a mid-six-figure salary for you, buddy! Five-martini lunches. Privation.
I changed my party affiliation to Independent on Arsebook. Will soon change it at the Town Hall.
Drag this bitch out by her hair and pUt her in jail NOW!!!
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!
The first comment has been deleted.
“Toe the line, peasant, or die of a disease we won’t cure you of”
Stalin lives again
There is a photo of her on Drudge right now. She looks like Emily Littela ... or the Church Lady.
She looks the part
A drab, aging Baby Boomer Bolshevik, with that hard look of the deranged apparatchik
Waterboard this perfumed pig. All of nobama’s commie minions need to be given the “what for”. Maybe time in a prison would rid her of her pomposity. Subhumans like her are wastes of good air.
you’re right, and this was predictable from the day Obama Care was announced....
She seems to have lots of 2012 WH Visitor check-ins to see a Jeanne Lambrew -
Under an executive order on April 11, 2009, Jeanne Lambrew was subsequently appointed the Director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Health Reform,
Maybe now America will come to understand how the death panels are intended to operate.
Right you are. It can now be measured in hours and days - we are there!
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.
Nurse Ratched was an evil witch but she was a woman.
That weird sexless bowser beast is the perfect image of Brave New Bureaucrat.
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.
Ms. Ingram also got BIG bonuses, which should be a scandal all on it’s own, considering the debt problem this country has!
Dang! It’s a guy!
of course ~ gaydar is going off all over America ~ this is the apparatchik obamugabe wants to put in charge of your health care ~
I am deleting my comment before it gets deleted.
Yeeeah, about that cataract surgery, we checked your voter registration.....
I cannot decide if this is Jimmy Fallon or Russell Crowe in drag???
Obamacare Funded IRS Big Data
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.
