Kathleen Sebelius' Reign Of Error
Investor's Business Daily ^ | April 14, 2014 | IBD EDITORIALS

Posted on 04/14/2014 9:05:36 AM PDT by raptor22

Health Overhaul: The midwife of ObamaCare exits stage left, leaving behind wreckage that once was the finest health care system in the world, less affordable health insurance and patients unable to find doctors and hospitals.

Kathleen Sebelius, the secretary of Health and Human Services — referred to in the increasingly un-Affordable Care Act's iconic use of the phrase "the Secretary shall determine," which appears in ObamaCare's guiding document no fewer than 1,005 times — has determined that it's time to go.

Or rather it's been determined for her by a White House in whose parallel universe ObamaCare's current alleged enrollment numbers represent an imagined triumph of a law illegally and unconstitutionally altered on the fly to meet number-goals she once denied having set and deadlines that became movable goal posts.

In fact, she had become the poster child for the ObamaCare disaster and, politically, had to go.

Proof that you can be a total f-up in government and still keep your job well beyond when you should have been fired.

Personally, I think her goose was cooked when she made the callous comment "Some Live, Some Die" about the young girl who as denied life saving cancer treatment.

The fact that she remained in office so long after that comment shows the power of the enemedia. If this wasn't a mid-term election year, I have no doubt that the witch would still be in office.

In May 2008, Kansas City Archbishop Joseph Naumann said that Kathleen Sebelius should stop receiving communion because of her support for abortion rights, and that she should not again take it unless she publicly stated that she opposed abortion rights.[24][25][26]

Syphilius said "I wasn’t pushed out — staying just “wasn’t an option” kinda like I didn’t get a divorce, staying married just wasn’t an option…

remember, one just wanted to kill puppies...

A bumbling, Know-Nothing, leftist idealogue President staffs his cabinet with people even more incompetent and stupid than himself.

What could possibly go wrong?

Look at some of his choices:

Sebelius
Napolitano
Hillary
Hagel
Timothy Geithner (Mr. Turbo-Tax-Tim himself)
Jeh Johnson
John Kerry
Samantha Power

There are just too many to list them all

Was there ever a bigger bunch of leftoid ignoramuses in any administration?

I don’t understand why anyone thinks Sebelius screwed up anything. She did exactly what she was supposed to do under supreme orders from the FU-in-Chief. No one was supposed to like what resulted from implementing Obamacare. The reasons for passing the law were bogus from the beginning. Soetoro and Sebelius trashed the best (with flaws) medical care available in the world all so the Marxist manifesto could be realized- total chaos will be upon us. This is just the first step to separate the sheep from the guard dogs.

You could be right because no one is that stupid and incompetent. Then again, it is government bureaucrats that we are talking about here.

We need only go by Soeotoro’s own statements about the goal of Single Payer and the total lack of caring about any negative repercussions falling on We the Peasants. Just take an aspirin and wait for the Employer mandate to kick in - that’s when the real fun begins if you are an Alinskyite.

Pretty evil and devious.

They create a real mess and then act like heroes when they “clean it up.” And zombie electorate have not clue that they have been duped.

We got a close-up view of her stupidity when she was governor here. Our leftist newspaper editors and poly-sci profs loved her.

If she had been fired after the “Some live. Some die.” comment the media would have been forced to talk about it more and admit she was telling the truth. As it was, she made the statement then everyone moved on.

Good point. Still, I can't believe her handlers let her blurt out the truth.

Maybe they have the election fraud machine so finely tuned they can afford to be honest on occasion.

Holder... ya.

I am very thankful that people are keeping an eye on this. We certainly can't trust the MSM to do their job.

This election cycle will be telling. The Obamacare failure has been painful and blatantly obvious. Will voters continue to love Obama or will they start to turn on him.

True, but it’s all in plain sight. We no longer have an excuse for being poorly informed. Unfortunately, about 75-80% fit into that category, but thankfully it is easier to get some attention these days than it was during Waco times.
