Kathleen, Iíve got a feeling youíre still in Kansas (Health insurance)
Washington Times ^ | April 2012 | Dr. Milton R. Wolf

Posted on 04/20/2012 6:30:45 PM PDT by jazusamo

Republicans embrace big-government health care Sebelius left behind

Liberals are a curious breed. They actually believe the government can mandate you into prosperity. They wave a magic wand, and the universe bends to their whim. At the end of each day, they rest their weary heads blissfully - willfully - unaware of the damage they cause.

Witness Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Before she was wielding the iron fist of power granted to her by Obamacare, she was the Kansas’ governor and, before that, the Kansas insurance commissioner. Health insurance mandates were her stock in trade, and with each new government dictate, Kansans saw their premiums increase. No matter how well-intentioned, the very nature of a mandate is that it forces consumers to buy something they don’t want, or why the need for a mandate? It’s unavoidable, then, that Kansas families’ costs increased and many simply could no longer afford insurance.

The net result? Mrs. Sebelius chased nearly a dozen health insurance companies out of the state, leaving behind 40,000 Kansans who no longer had health insurance. That President Obama would choose her to head HHS and implement Obamacare is telling and terrifying.

I reject the demonstrably destructive government-mandate approach to health care. Unfortunately, Mrs. Sebelius‘ ghost still haunts Kansas, and it’s the Republicans who are giving it life.

The Republican-dominated Kansas House of Representatives recently passed yet another Sebelius-style health insurance mandate, by an overwhelming margin, 92-30. The party that claims to stand against government-run health care is nonetheless voting for the government to run health care. The Republican-controlled Senate will take up the issue and, presumably, send it to Republican Gov. (and former presidential aspirant) Sam Brownback.

Sebelius was the first Governor to sign the Uniform Child Abduction Prevention Act (UCAPA)

This act is much worse than Obama care.

Simply meeting any item on a long list allows the government to label you as a potential felon (child abductor)

Horrible acts such as picking up your child’s school records.

Horrible acts such as having the wrong skin color.

Horrible acts such as being poor.

Why does nobody care?

Of all Obama’s goons I personally think Sebelius is the sorriest. She strikes me as beyond normal evil probably comic book evil yet for real.

I have to agree though she and Holder are competing for it.

It ain't the I pad.....it's FR, struggling to make the big leagues; and it just ain't happening yet.

I kick in quarterly, with the hopes of seeing some improvement....but have seen nary-a-nary so far.

Now if Rush Limbo would spend thirty seconds on supporting his main source, Jim could get this house in order straightaway.

I spent 5 years in Western Kansas. I liked the state and liked the people who were basically conservative.

One thing I never understood is how they kept electing such radicals as Glickmann. At least they got rid of him in 94.

I have heard the illegals have about taken over Dodge City tho Garden City is still free.

It's a disgrace that a Republican House, Senate and Gov. are passing this junk.

What in the world is wrong with Kansas?

I’ve no idea but it sounds like RINOs are running things there. Really sad this is happening!

Glad they are not using a MaxiPad. It would be internet devastation on a scale not seen since LAZ got on to it.

No, it was clearly my fat finger on the iPad.

It did not give the indication that it was posting. So I pressed the button more than once.

J. runs a great site.

It may be dangerous, but it is simply fantastic. Much better than my old PC

Oooh bad... Can’t you just see them coming out with a ‘Maxi’ iPad one day and not remembering the connotation?
