Rep. Jim Jordan grills IRS Obamacare director on Capitol Hill

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

There was showdown on Capitol Hill yesterday when Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) ripped into Sarah Hall Ingram, the former head of the IRS division that targeted conservative groups and the current director of the Affordable Care Act Office at the IRS, for waiting five months to come before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

As TheBlaze reported earlier Wednesday, the Oversight Committee hearing focused on emails between Ingram and top
White House officials that allegedly contained confidential tax information, a violation of IRS code.

Section 6103 of the IRS code prohibits federal employees from “disclos[ing] any return or return information obtained by him in any manner in connection with his service as such an officer or an employee.” Disclosing any such information is punishable by up to five years in prison.

“Jim Jordan interrogates the IRS Affordable Care Act head. And this is Sarah Hall Ingram,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “She’s, remember, most people haven’t connected these dots yet, the IRS is in charge of your healthcare. And here’s the head of it yesterday in front of Congress:”

“Unbelievable,” Pat said. “It truly is. She can’t speak to what’s been redacted even though she wrote it.”

“And gang, it’s not about money. It’s not about the President’s color. It’s not about the party. It’s about control. These people will have your personal information. They have your personal health information. Are you telling me you don’t think it’s getting worse from here,” Glenn asked. “[The IRS] oversees your entire life now. And if that’s not enough, throw in the NSA that can track you, listen to you, read everything that you write, know every purchase you made. Are you out of your mind? America, I ask you sincerely: Are you out of your mind?”

    So how much more information has the arrogant and hubris filled government shared illegally on each of us? How long until the information is used for full-scale political, social, and economic oppression?

    Information is power, and whomever controls the information has the power.

    The government not only must be brought back under control, it must be dismantled and completely cleaned out from top to bottom.

    So how can anyone trust the government unless you are a complete madman?

    Today I am still being called a Conspiracy Theorist, because I have been trying to wake people up for years.  Many people who see the light ask me how did I know years ago what is happening today.  I tell them all the same thing, I Do My Own Research, I have worked for the US Gov’t via the Army and seen how they can be, I keep on top of issues because they are that Important…

    But, I still wonder when people are going to come to the light (hopefully before it is too late)!!!

    Does no one have a problem with the IRS, along with 16,000 new agents under obamascam, being involved in our health care in any way, shape or form?  To have someone so corrupt in charge of said scheme is beyond comprehension.   Our government has been taken over by thugs, bullies and leftists and obamascam has zero to do with health or your family’s well being and everything to do with control of the masses.  The final nail in the coffin of our beloved country if we don’t resist and tell them to, well, go pound sand.

    Especially when people do the research and find that the IRS IS NOT A BRANCH OF The Federal Government… They are actually a Private Corporation If One Digs Deep Enough!!!

    Obamacare has noting to do with our health but with power greed and control.

    Here is a idea. Give her till 6pm to hand over all pages she has on everything the commi. wants or prepare a very long time sitting in jail. And if any of these pages have any blacked out parts. You will retire in jail.   Get your ass moving. Now

    She looks at the commi. Like they are beneath her.  I don’t care what they want from me, what are they going to do.   Maybe someone could slap those glasses back on place properly.  She is pathetic.  Throw her jail.
    If it was anyone on this board, they would have us in jail.

    Ms. Ingram committed a felony wiith our tax information that would normally require up to 5 years in prison.  Some people are more equal than others.

    Cummings: Uh, I don’t know nothing. Uh, I didn’t say nothing. Uh, I didn’t do nothing. This guy has never taken the credit or blame for anything as long as he has been in office. How can he possibly be the lead Dem on this committee? Based on what? Old age and looking stupid? Then, yeah, he belongs. And this Ingram broad looks like she could be the roommate of that commie Pivens.

    The IRS has no share holders, is non profit, it’s leader is
    appointed by the President of the United States, it’s entire workforce are
    federal employees and is a bureau of the U.S. Department of the Treasury but it’s
    secretly a private corporation. Draxx, maybe you shouldn’t be doing your own
    research because you really suck at it.

    Once again Glen is getting you people all worked up over nothing.
    The IRS is not taking over your health care;  they do have a limited interest in it just as
    they always have. Certain health care expenses are tax deductable so they need to
    ensure that people claiming these deductions are actually entitled to them. They’re
    not looking at health care details like that Draxx received treatment for his
    erectile dysfunction; they have no need for that information so why would they
    burden themselves with collecting it? Even if they did what could they possibly
    do with it except sit around the office ripping on Draxx and his penis problems.

    On Tribal Lands the Employees Are Federal Workers whether Native Americans Or Not…  I didn’t say it was Secret!!! I said you have to dig deep enough, I had your argument until a Tax Attorney actually showed me more about the IRS…  But, Brian you are welcome to live in your own ignorance!  You don’t really know what legal standings the IRS has or doesn’t have against any of us, your argument is lame.  I purposely left it vague enough to intrigue others to do their own investigation!

    Sure is generous of a private company to do all that
    collection work for the government at no charge. Come on dude, you make an extraordinary claim which if to be taken seriously demands extraordinary evidence and yet you don’t even include a single link or reference other than hearsay from some unnamed tax attorney. Very Glenn Beckish of you.

    Seriously dude?  I was in a quick stop gas station a while back and an obviously elderly gentleman was purchasing a pack of cigarettes.  Even with his gray hair and wrinkled skin he was asked for an ID.  This may not sound like much but it was then scanned.  A few days later I was in a grocery store and a similar thing occured except the guy was buyng some beer.  Again his ID was scanned.  Surely they weren’t making sure they were old enough, no I think they were scanning the ID’s so if these gentlemen came down with any, I mean ANY ailment that could possibly be attributed to their use of tobacco or alcohol, they will be rejected medical treatment or payment of the treatment.  I seriously believe this is the direction we are headed with this Obamacare thing.  The Feds need to get the hell out of our lives!!

    No, I was joking. Of course I know that the IRS is gathering
    our medical histories and data mining our children just so they can take away
    our guns and turn us into atheist.

    The Feds don’t own gas stations or grocery stores and if you’re smoking while claiming a reduced insurance rate for being a non-smoker it’s the private insurance company that you’re defrauding. The Feds aren’t enforcing compliance; they got enough problems just getting people to pay their taxes. But everyone loves a great conspiracy story.

     That must be what he meant.

  • Draxx

    Actually I meant a Bureau… I should have proof read better late at night!

    At no charge who ever said that, they rake in money for the government and the administrators that are assigned by the gov’t…  I will get you links later, I have to work for a living now!

    Good for Jordan!
    Now, the lady in question needs a makeover, badly.  My mother would drop dead if she saw the lady representing a high level in the IRS.  Not even healthy looking.  Dear God!
