HHS Secretary: I Don't Work for Those Calling for Me to Resign
Posted on 10/25/2013 9:24:43 AM PDT by Impala64ssa
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Thursday rejected the onslaught of demands -- leveled most prominently by Republican lawmakers -- for her to resign over the botched rollout of the new Obamacare website.
The majority of people calling for me to resign, I would say, are people who I dont work for and who do not want this program to work in the first place, Sebelius said during an appearance at a Phoenix HHS call center. I have had frequent conversations with the president and I have committed to him that my role is to get the program up and running and we will do just that.
When asked if any heads have rolled in the administration over the problem-plagued website, she responded: No one -- no one has been fired.
It is amazing that the Obama administration doesnt understand that their bosses are the American people. Maybe that is why the administration continues to push this train wreck of a healthcare law and refused to heed years of warning signs that Obamacare was the wrong prescription to fix Americas healthcare problems, Republican National Committee spokesperson Kirsten Kukowski said. Its time for President Obama to do what he should have done weeks ago and fire Secretary Sebelius.
HHS issued a clarification on Friday, saying the secretarys remarks were aimed at reminding people of the longstanding political opposition to the law.
The secretary serves at the pleasure of the president and for the American people, many of whom desperately need affordable health care. She is committed to getting this right and ensuring that HealthCare.gov is working smoothly, spokeswoman Joanne Peters said.
Sebelius comments came on the same day that several dozen members of Congress -- all Republicans -- sent a letter to President Obama urging him to fire Sebelius.
By calling for the resignation of Secretary Sebelius, you can send a powerful signal that the American people will not be held responsible for her departments failures, the lawmakers wrote Thursday.
The White House continues to stand by the secretary and says she has the full confidence of the president.

Barry has made a critical error.
He thought that Sebelius had at least a scintilla of competence.

Barry didn't hire her because he thought she was competent. He hired her because she was a loyal party member and a member of a preferred class.
Funny that women (51% of America) are thought to be a minority and in need of protections from the men (49%).

Political opposition to the law.
They see the country as those against us and those for us.
They don’t work for the entire country.
Forget the constitution completely.
They know enough to put this thing together but not enough to read and understand a two page job description/mission.

Apparently you don’t work either.
You are a cheap imitation of an American, manufactured in China.

Unfortunately she works for Americans who are largely ignorant of civics.
Michele Bachmann said this on Twitter:
Out of touch statement of the day goes to Secretary Sebelius.
And was immediately hit with attacks from the genius left.
@MicheleBachmann Incorrect as usual. The Secretary serves at the desecration of the President. More Bachmann stupidity
@MicheleBachmann Shelly, everything that comes out of your mouth is an out of touch statement. By the way, do you buy Girl Scout Cookies?
.@MicheleBachmann Just a pawn to make #Repubs look bad by picking on a woman ala #SusanRice- they'd send her out in blackface if they could!

Again, our attention is being mis-directed. Whether the site works or not NOW, it WILL eventually. We need to show that Obamacare itself is flawed!!

Clue for Sebelius: you work for the people paying your salary.
The people paying your salary are the American taxpayers.
That means you work for us.
Based on your gross incompetence and insufferable arrogance We The People demand your immediate resignation.
Capiche, you profoundly ignorant ditz?
