What Do We Know About Obama’s HHS Nominee, Sylvia Mathews Burwell (Left-wing looney bird)
http://www.patheos.com ^ | April 12, 2014 | Kathy Schiffer

Pro-lifers and conservatives are cheering the news that Kathleen Sebelius has resigned her post as Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. Sebelius, whose reputation was sullied following the massive network problems which crippled the rollout of the Obamacare website, resigned April 11 after five years at HHS.

But wait: Aren’t the celebrations perhaps a little premature? What do we really know about President Obama’s nominee to replace Sebelius in the post, Sylvia Mathews Burwell?

She comes from a left-leaning organization. Before her current position as director of the Office of Management and Budget, Ms. Burwell was Chief Operating Officer and Executive Director of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. During her ten-year stint there, she focused on poverty through agricultural development, financial services for the poor, and global libraries. Not to be overlooked, though, is the Gates Foundation’s support for easily accessed contraception and abortion. Although Melinda Gates has stated publicly that her foundation will not provide support for abortion, the Foundation’s third international family planning conference, held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, offered six roundtable discussions promoting abortion.

No experience whatsover in healthcare and she worked for years for pro-abortion Bill Gates and the pro-abortion Clintons. Just another left-wing flunkie that will bow down to the Abortionist-in-chief.

Snip

She’s not afraid to take decisive action. But critics have criticized her policy implementation when the Congress failed to approve a budget in 2013. It was Burwell who initiated the process that closed national parks, visitors’ centers and even the “panda-cam” at the National Zoo. In an email to executive departments and agencies, she wrote: “Agencies should now execute plans for an orderly shutdown due to the absence of appropriations.”

It is my understanding that this included the shut-down or barricading of the WWII Memorial in Washington DC.

You know the American people are in deep trouble when Barry’s toads in his state controlled “media” get down on their knees and start worshipping and singing praises to one of Barry’s political nominees. It’s called the commie ‘RAT political BS syndrome. Worse than being just mentally challenged.

Meet Sylvia Burwell, the woman who ordered the government shutdown

A single person shut down the entire U.S. government for the first time in 17 years.

Not a congressman, but an unelected woman named Sylvia Burwell who, as the relatively new director of the Office of Management and Budget, sent the email that initiated the process that has closed national parks, visitors’ centers and even the “panda-cam” at the National Zoo.

I'm irritated by stories with unnecessary introductory fluff, like this one. "Conservatives and pro-lifers are cheering..." the exit of Sebelius, etc.

I wasn't. I always look ahead to the devil I don't know, regardless of the devil I know when this administration plays Musical Chairs. He should get to the point, remembering presumption is a sin.

And how much do we need to know about any of this administration's officials. They each reflect one or more of the erroneous Old New Left worldviews shared by El Jefe.

If she is Obama’s choice, you know she is worthless and not qualified to do anything worthwhile. That is the fact and the truth.

Wow, yet another OES female Leftist totalitarian with deep connections to Hillary and Gates who’s entire philosophy boils down to “obey or be crushed.”

What a surprise.

That's one thing you can count on from the Left. No compromise.

That's one thing the RINOs should learn from them.

To be fair, haven’t we all gone through the trash of a deceased person during a police investigation? Seriously, that right there should have stopped her career, except in fast food.
