Skip to comments.Sibelius defends the indefensible

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius writes an utterly unconvincing retort to charges of thuggery in her threats to health insurance companies, in today's Wall Street Journal. What is amazing about this display is that she doesn't use the space provided to defend her actions, but to attack and demonize the private health care insurance industry. Sebelius's writing is entirely unconvincing and riddled with faulty logic.
Sebelius: "Over the past decade, Americans have seen what happens when insurance companies have free rein"
Currently insurance companies are regulated by both state and federal agencies. Nearly 50% of every healthcare dollar that is spent is controlled by the federal government. What Sebelius calls "free rein" is in truth attempting to compete in a partially socialized and one of the most heavily regulated industries in America.. . . . . .

Kathleen Sebelius should be dragged through the streets and then tarred and feathered.
Then, the agency she heads should be completely dismantled.
Kathleen Sebelius is an enemy of the people.
I just got my notice that my insurance is going up 70% per month starting in January. My agent said that they were not supposed to say that it was because of Obamacare, the the notice spelled out the changes that the insurance company must make to the policies because of the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act”.
It has gotten to the point that I can’t pay this insurance. It was bad enough before, but with the $200 increase, my premiums are neck and neck with my house payment now. And I don’t blame the Health Insurance Company.
We are only starting to see the horrors of this bill. I can only hope that there will be others like me getting these notices and bills BEFORE November 2nd. Enough that a tidal wave of voter fury will rain down on the authors of this evil.
As Al Jolson would say.. Brother, you aint seen nothing yet.
