Recent press reports focused on the 157 visits to the White House by former IRS Commissioner Douglas H. Shulman, but there’s been little scrutiny of IRS Obamacare official Sarah Hall Ingram‘s 165 White House visits.

According to White House visitor data, Shulman never attended any of Ingram’s meetings, and Ingram never attended a White House meeting with Shulman.

All of Ingram’s 165 meetings were with White House staff, while only 151 of Shulman’s visits were with staff.  Shulman attended six meetings with President Barack Obama.

Ingram attended 62 White House meetings in 2011, 90 in 2012 and 13 this year (though February).

Most of Ingram’s visits were hosted by Jeanne Lambrew, who according to the Washington Post is Deputy Assistant to the President for Health Policy.

 

Most of Sarah Hall Ingram's visits to the White House were at meetings hosted by Jeanne Lambrew, Deputy Director of the White House Office of Health Reform.

53 people attended White House Meetings with Shulman or Ingram

Raw numbers show about 230 people attended meetings with Ingram at the White House. (Some of these names could possibly be combined because of multiple spellings.)

Similar raw numbers show about 270 people attended White House staff meetings with Shulman.

A number of the visitors met only with Shulman or only with Ingram. But a total of 53 people attended at least one of the White House staff meetings with both Shulman and Ingram.

The table below shows the top 20 names that attended both sets of meetings:

People at White House staff meetings with Douglas Shulman or Sarah Hall Ingram. (Note: Shulman's 151 White House staff visits must be combined from three different name variations.)

See the complete list of names of attendees listed for all Shulman and Ingram meetings in this Excel file.

The people on the list above should be quite knowledgeable about what happened in the White House meetings with Shulman and Ingram.  The top three on this list are:

  • Richard Kronick, HHS Deputy Assistant Secretary, Office of Health Policy
  • Catherine E Livingston, Healthcare Counsel, IRS Office of Chief Counsel
  • Kenneth Y Choe, HHS Deputy General Counsel
