    Cant see how this could go wrong.....

    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.

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

    This is how.

    PS: I know you're being cynical. Just think this needs extra play.

    So now only democrats will get health care?

    And the republicans will pay for it?
  4. That was the plan all along.
  5. Clearly this woman was put in both jobs for a reason. My assumption is that she is a typical Bob Beckel-type democrat thug and that her bosses knew it. She apparently received extraordinary bonuses that were large enough to require presidential approval.
  6. Nothing pleases me more that tax authorities, the scum of the earth, are getting into trouble.

    The IRS chief was just grilled by Congress. He couldn't even give a yes or no answer asking if he is required to provide truthful answers to Congress.

    He couldn't say who gave the orders to target conservative and religious groups. Then he used the Holder lie when asked specifics, "I don't know", "I don't remember".

    When asked for his emails, he said, "I'll have to talk to my lawyer."

    It's the same old stonewalling and lies from the Obama Administration - top to bottom.
