IRS Official In Charge During Tea Party Targeting Now Runs Health Care Office

Submitted by Michael Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

I’d like to say that the following is unbelievable, but it’s not. Unfortunately, it is all too believable.

From ABC:

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.
USA! USA!

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.

Grant announced today that he would retire June 3, despite being appointed as commissioner of the tax-exempt office May 8, a week ago.

“Obamacare empowers the agency that just violated the public’s trust by secretly targeting conservative groups,” Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind., added. “Even by Washington’s standards, that’s unacceptable.”

Sen. John Cornyn even introduced a bill, the “Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act of 2013,” which would prohibit the Secretary of the Treasury, or any delegate, including the IRS, from enforcing the Affordable Care Act.

“Now more than ever, we need to prevent the IRS from having any role in Americans’ health care,” Cornyn, R-Texas, stated. “I do not support Obamacare, and after the events of last week, I cannot support giving the IRS any more responsibility or taxpayer dollars to implement a broken law.”

Pure 100% unadulterated Banana Republic.

Is the author of that blog completely ignorant as to the origins of the term blitzkrieg?

Ahh, the Banana Republic of Barack Obama...

Where crony capitalism, nepotism, targeting your 'enemies' are the modus operandi. The fascist will have eliminated 'liberty and justice for all', if we let them.'

An upward demotion?

Resignation or redeployment?

Whatever. These days at a certain level you screw up and you get rewarded.

IT'S A GOOD THING SO MANY COLLEGE STUDENTS ARE MAJORING IN INCOMPETENCE. THEY HAVE GREAT CAREERS IN GOVERNMENT WAITING FOR THEM.

Most of those who think so actually don't and most of those who think sew actually rip.

identifying positively, the person responsible, in any situation, should be the very first thing, before reaching the stage of reprimand

i.e. due process

Hope that person is positively identified
