On Tuesday, U.S. Senator John Thune (R-SD) sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew questioning the wisdom of placing Sarah Hall Ingram, the embattled former Internal Revenue Service (IRS) commissioner for tax-exempt groups, in charge of Obamacare.
“Given Ms. Hall Ingram’s position as commissioner of the IRS Tax Exempt and Government Entities Division when the targeting of certain groups began, please confirm whether Ms. Hall Ingram is a subject of the Department of Justice’s investigation into whether IRS employees broke criminal laws by singling out conservative groups for special review and inappropriate questions,” wrote Thune.
The South Dakota senator also requested that the IRS halt the implementation or enforcement of any regulations that may have been drafted under Ingram.
“Until there are sufficient answers as to her involvement, I request that the IRS refrain from issuing or enforcing any regulations that have been drafted under the supervision of Ms. Hall Ingram in her current capacity as director of the IRS’s Affordable Care Act office, which is responsible for implementing the health care law,” Thune said.
He added: “The IRS should also immediately cease work on additional Affordable Care Act regulations until the Department of Justice confirms that Ms. Hall Ingram is not a subject of the criminal investigation, Ms. Hall Ingram is removed from this office, or Ms. Hall Ingram is exonerated by an investigation by the Department of Justice.”
On May 13, the New York Times continued their campaign against Sen. Ted Cruz by misrepresenting his opposition to the Marketplace Fairness Act. Over the past few months, the Times has published numerous pieces blasting the Texas senator, which is the price you pay in the liberal press for having a backbone concerning defending your conservative beliefs.
As the conservative-leaning nonpartisan Tax Foundation noticed in this instance, the Times's Timothy Egan erroneously charged the following:
Too many times, our teachers are called upon to be heroes. And every time, they deliver:
[Rhonda Crosswhite], a sixth-grade teacher at the Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore, Okla. — a building that took a powerful hit from the storm — covered six students with her body, lying on top of them in one of the school’s bathroom stalls when the building, a she put it, “just started coming down.”
The walls started falling in on them, so she jumped on top of them, shielding them with her body. After the storm had passed, Evans pulled children from the destroyed building. But she still doesn’t know how many of them survived.
As students emerged from hiding, many were stunned by what they saw. Teachers carried the children away from the worst of the wreckage, comforting them until thankful parents took over.
If America’s political leaders could spend a little less time trying to break their unions, cut their pay, and demean their very profession, perhaps they would see how integral to the fabric of the country our public teachers really are.
