The IRS insists that Ingram has not actually been responsible for the day-to-day operations of the tax-exempt office since late 2010, when she moved over to the Affordable Care Act Office. But she held the title of commissioner until 2012, according to testimony she made to Congress.
Republicans, who have sought to link this IRS scandal with the Affordable Care Act for days, will continue to ask whether the agency can be entrusted with fairly implementing the law in light of this scandal.
"It is also worth noting that the IRS is one of the lead federal agencies in charge of implementing Obamacare," Sen. Deb Fischer, R-Neb., said Tuesday. "It does not appear that the IRS is in any position to implement this highly controversial law, particularly as public trust in this agency continues to plummet."
Ingram was mentioned several times during Friday's House proceedings, and Miller defended her performance as a "superb civil servant."
