Did Any Of You Still Need Convincing That The ACA Was A Terrible Idea?

Funny thing about this recent IRS scandal: the guy taking the fall wasn't really in charge while the problem was at its height. No, the person in charge was a woman, and she now has a new job. That job is overseeing Obamacare implementation.
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.
That's perfect. Really, it couldn't be better.

UPDATE: Yes, it could.

Those who underestimate the Left do so at humanity's peril.

Their organization is a lot more robust and powerful than people like to give them credit for.

Such weak things as democratic elections, republic based constitutions, are nothing but fuel for the fire. Those that do not wish to suppress the Left's insurgency will find themselves on the other side of COIN.

The US cannot change the world when it cannot even change itself for the better. On the other hand, if the US could change Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, and Korea for the better, it would be absolute proof that it has and could change itself as well. But that's all in the past.

Sarah Hall Ingram should be prosecuted. She should testify in a criminal trial.

Our rules are very clear, and her tenure has the whiff of not just serious misconduct but also bribery. Those bonuses, for example, had to have approval by a person with a name.

Government employee bonuses up to 35% of base salary? No, you wouldn't have to worry about that being used for a political spoils system, right?

A very important point about those bonuses -- only with the personal approval of the President.
