Sebelius Tries To Blame GOP For Coming ObamaCare Failures
IBD ^ | 4/11/13 | Editorial

Posted on 04/11/2013 4:53:30 PM PDT by Nachum

Health Care: As Democrats grow increasingly worried that ObamaCare will explode on the launch pad just as midterm elections get going, the Obama administration seeks to pin blame on Republicans. Good luck with that.

Earlier this week, Health and Human Services head Kathleen Sebelius admitted that she didn't realize how complicated getting ObamaCare off the ground would be.

Sebelius complained that "no one fully anticipated" the difficulties involved in implementing ObamaCare, or how confusing it would be with the public.

She wasn't talking about the massive and impossible task of imposing central planning on one-sixth of the nation's economy.

Instead, she was trying to find a way to blame Republicans for ObamaCare's failures when the inevitable problems start emerging.

Rather than say "let's get on board, let's make this work," recalcitrant Republicans have forced her to engage in "state-by-state political battles," Sebelius said at a Harvard School of Public Health forum. "The politics has been relentless."

These people have no shame and no soul. I pity them when they meet their Maker.

Had a Managers Meeting today. Our owner is mad as HELL over 0bamacare. He’s hired a lawyer and is doing all he can to circumvent the monstrosity that is coming our way. He is one of those White Evil Capitalists who employs hundreds of people in a very depressed part of our state.

I love that guy. :)

Unfortunately, while our wonderful Gov. did the right thing by handing the Wisconsin exchange right back to the Feds, I fear the ensuing cluster that it will become will cause many to wrongly blame him for the problem.

Oh, there’s no doubt in my military mind that the WRONG people will be blamed for this mess.

That’s the MO of the LibTards...but our GOP just continues to roll over.

Such opportunities to to call them on this at EVERY turn since it’s ill-conceived conception - and all we get are *Crickets Chirping*

I’m kinda thinking they’re ALL in on this...

we all stated the problems before it passed. we all stated the problems after nobody read it but passed it. we’ve been stating all the problems all along.

democrats refused to listen to anything. at any time. and they still are refusing to listen.

What’s truly frightening is that there are these insurmountable problems and budget over-runs and the stupid thing is not even up and running. Just think how bad it will be when they do get it up and “running”. Everyone ought to make a point reminding them that this is their pig and it’s their responsibility to put the lipstick on it and make it beautiful.

Hmmmmmmmm . . . . . . . . she's starting too high. She's supposed to blame Bush first then, when that doesn't fly, blame the GOP.

Apparently, she's not getting Dear Leader's memos!!

“I’m kinda thinking they’re ALL in on this...”

If we can see, and WE most certainly do as we discuss it everyday, and every night at FR then they most certainly see as well. Yeah. It’s very difficult to believe they aren’t in on this.
