Sebelius will be a no-show at Obamacare hearing (is the end near?)
NBC News ^ | 10/19/13 | Kristen Welker

Posted on 10/19/2013 2:21:38 PM PDT by Libloather

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will not testify at a congressional hearing Thursday into breakdowns in the rollout of the federal Affordable Care Act, drawing more heat from House Republicans.

An HHS official confirmed Saturday that the secretary would not attend, citing a conflict in her schedule.

"We are in close communication with the committee and have expressed our desire to be responsive to their request,” the official said.

She'll probably be teaching a class about how to sneeze into your armpit so you won't spread the flu.

Subpoena her! This is another SCANDAL! The King isn't held to account for anything in his 'post-coup' Amerika.

A total lack of accountability to the people is a sure sign we're under dictatorship. They do what they want and don't give a CRAP what we think. The King answers to no one.

Why go through the charade of pretending to be concerned or that something will be done about it?

The end is near for Obamacare, PERIOD. No young people are signing up for this crap.

The people who are waiting for the errors to diappear are the old people who need it. Young people have zero patience for such things, and realize they are better off paying the fine.

DIE Dahmer-care, DIE!

You have to define your “old”. Ages 65 and up are already in Medicare.

Kathleen Sebelius is demonstrating the usual leftist refusal to (a) have any accountability for their actions and, (b) respect congressional authority, which they obviously do not recognize. This is an out-of-control government and unless the congress can grow enough gonads to rein it in, even if only by standing up this kind of ‘FU’ attitude by the haughty HHS Secretary. Issue a congressional subpena to Her Majesty. Oh, wait, the establishment Republicans won’t ever do something as non ‘bi-partisan’ as that. Throw them out next November!

My question is, what is Obama going to do Thursday so the media pays attention to him and not the hearing?

Big immigration announcement??????

Going after Sebelius is a waste of time and a diversion from the GOPe to us bubbas. Once she's gone, Obamacare will still exist. Who cares?

Stick to the goal.

Issue a subpoena. Put her under oath. If Congress won't do that, they might as well strike the tents and go home now. The coup d'etat is complete.

Congress should send her an “invitation” to a
fake TV show.

Want to bet she will show up?

Something much more important than a Congressional Committee chaired by a Republican, she has a standing appointment to have her nails done.

Let her stay in there, she’s incompetent. She’s damaged goods, a great reminder of the problem at hand. Did you see that pic of the Obozo facepalm with Sebelius after she gave him the bad news.

If Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius had a molecule of honor, she would commit Seppuku (ritual suicide or “Hara Kiri”). However, Sebelius wouldn't recognize honor if she tripped on it. The woman is without any vestige of honor.

I don't blame Sebelius. I blame all of congress. Oversight is their job. For years the DHHS Secretary has been giving briefings on Obamacare with assurances of the status of the law. Not one legislator ever asked for results of beta testing, or a verifiable demonstration of how it all worked.

If my own child gets to grade his or her own school work and issue their own report card, then why all the shock when they can't pass the SAT test when it's time to go to college?

“Sebelius will not testify at a congressional hearing Thursday into breakdowns in the rollout of the federal Affordable Care Act,”

Sparing her the embarrassment of taking the fifth.

Well heck, that saves her the trouble of playing dumb or out and out lying for the day.

The process is now streamlined.
