IRS commissioner for tax-exempt organizations now in charge of Obamacare enforcement???

The current administration fails to profile terrorists, while the IRS has been profiling patriot, liberty groups, and other related tea party organizations. It is not going to be enough to call for a few token resignations, such as interim personnel whose days were numbered anyway, such as IRS Acting Commissioner Steven Miller. 
This is this same IRS that will be in charge of enforcing key elements of Obamacare. And it just got worse. According to ABC News [emphasis added]:
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.
As bad as the appointment of Sarah Hall Ingram is, does anyone really think it’s a good idea for the beloved IRS to dictate to citizens on health care matters? (Postscript: Not that it will eliminate nationalized healthcare, but The House of Representatives voted again today to repeal Obamacare, mostly along  party lines in a 229-195 vote. There is no chance it will pass in the Senate.)
