Despite Obama’s attempts to paint the IRS scandal which illegally targeted Tea Party and other conservative groups as a phony scandal that was isolated among a few overzealous IRS employees, we are now discovering that the White House was, indeed, at the center of the IRS scandal.
Longtime Obama advisor and progressive activist Jeanne Lambrew, who is Deputy Assistant to the President for Health Policy, is the White House official complicit in the IRS Tea Party scandal. The Obama Deputy exchanged confidential taxpayer information with the IRS and steered policy in the IRS Tea Party scandal. Lambrew is the most powerful Obama administration official involved in ObamaCare implementation within the White House.
The Deputy Assistant to the President was a health-policy adviser to then-Senator Obama’s presidential campaign in 2008. She was subsequently named deputy director and then director of the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) now-defunct Office of Health Reform, where she reported directly to Kathleen Sebelius.
Lambrew’s current position as Deputy Assistant to the President gives her widespread centralized power over the implementation of ObamaCare.
Lambrew exchanged confidential taxpayer information about Tea Party and other conservative organizations with IRS official Sarah Hall Ingram and White House health policy advisor Ellen Montz, according to 2012 emails obtained by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and provided to The Daily Caller last week. Ingram attempted to counsel Lambrew and the White House on a lawsuit brought by religious organizations who oppose ObamaCare on the basis of it’s contraception mandate.
Lambrew also hosted 155 of Ingram’s 165 White House visits, according to White House visitor logs that were recently taken offline during the government shutdown. The IRS illegally targeted conservative and Tea Party groups denying tax-exempt applications in order to keep Tea Party groups on the sidelines for the 2012 election in what amounts to the most egregious and massive case of voter fraud in history.
The IRS scandal also involves illegal, abusive audits of Tea Party and conservative organizations between 2010 and 2012.
Lambrew previously served as a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, a left-wing Washington think tank headed by former Clinton chief of staff John Podesta. Podesta credited Lambrew with helping to shape the foundation of the progressive health care reform push beginning in 2005, which was eventually realized via ObamaCare despite attempts to demagogue the issue by conservatives who believe that health is a privilege, not a right, according to Podesta.
Lambrew is unabashedly liberal, serving as a driving force behind many of the Democratic Party’s most progressive ideas on healthcare reform.
Despite the economic implications of ObamaCare, which effects one-sixth of the US economy, it is not Obama’s economic advisors who are advising when it come to the implementation of ObamaCare, it is Lambrew. It is Lambrew who is in charge of developing regulations for ObamaCare and it is Lambrew who is at the center of the IRS Tea Party scandal.
