Behind every powerful health care mandate under Obamacare is a power-hungry woman named Kathleen Sebelius. As the Health and Human Services Secretary, she has unprecedented power under Obamacare to control health care decisions, the approval of medical products and the national biomedical research agenda. The Secretary is not only the key player; she is the only one on the field. "The Secretary shall " is mentioned more than 1000 times in the new health care law. Sebelius is using that power to promote a liberal agenda and Obama's re-election.
She pushed the contraception edict. Her staff wrote the rules that decided Catholic hospitals and charities are not religious institutions. And she was the one who came up the with the "accommodation" in response to resistance to the mandate: just make the health plans pay for it even if the customers of the plan don't want it.
It is clear Sebelius cares only about imposing a worldview and policies to win support for Obamacare. A reporter asked Sebelius: "If a Catholic nonprofit is paying for your insurance coverage, isn't it paying for contraception if you are getting the coverage through that same insurer?" Sebelius: "The federal employees health plan costed this as no cost, free, no cost, because adding contraception and having some employees take advantage of that coverage lowers the overall cost of the health plan."
Free? She will tell insurers to suck up the cost and still force religious organization to offer the benefit. Or else.
This is not an aberration. It is quintessential Kathy: She rules by fiat and if you cross her she will crush you. And when she rebukes and bullies, Sebelius, like Nurse Ratched, claims she is doing so for our own good. As the Big Nurse said:

Tiller the baby killer, the notorious late term abortionist who was shot, was a big contributor to the Sebelius campaign.
She is vile.
Who is more dispicable, Sebelius or Pelosi?
"Health". Yeah. Spitting in the face of God and sanity.
A hard choice, but my choice is Sebelius. She is a few degrees more ugly and vicious than Pelosi.
She is trying to fill the shoes of Josef Mengele, the Angel of Death in Auschwitz.
There's gotta be a punch line somewhere...
You didn't excerpt it did you?
Too much power in D.C. already.
Need to be devolved in a mojor way.
Sebelius. She has more power, and exercises it from the shadows.
There was no need for for the USA to nationalize health care. Obamacare is not about helping sick people, but removing enterprise from the hands of business and replacing it with the steel boot of an uber powerful government agency that is given authority to operate without due process.
National Healthcare will quickly become malignant.
Sebelius, Pelosi, Napolitano,... No wonder our country is so Balkanized.
