Skip to comments.Sebelius Now Refusing To Testify Before Senate Pane (A mockery of our Republic)

Outgoing Health and Human Services Sec. Kathleen Sebelius is now refusing to testify before the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies, a Senate aide told The Daily Caller Tuesday.
Sebelius had originally been set to testify before the subcommittee about the departments 2015 $70 billion budget request on April 2.
According to another aide, however, several weeks after confirming the hearing date, she requested a date switch with the National Institutes of Health budget hearing on May 7. The committee accommodated her request.
Now, after announcing her resignation on April 11, she is refusing to testify according to the two aides, even though she is still the sitting secretary remaining at the post until her successor, OMB Director Sylvia Mathews Burwell is confirmed.
It appears that Sec. Sebelius has unilaterally decided that she is no longer accountable to Congress, the first aide said.
The other aide explained that HHS has not given the committee any reason for her refusal and that Sebelius has not suggested anyone to testify in her place.
That same aide noted subcommittee Chairman Tom Harkin planned to call Sebelius Tuesday about the hearing.

She stayed on the federal payroll just long enough to collect a lifetime paycheck.
Give her a break.
This news of the LA Clippers owner, whoever he is (heck, whoever the heck the LA Clippers are) has hit all of us very deeply.
She’s probably very busy keeping up with that, as we all are.
“Sebelius had originally been set to testify before the subcommittee about the departments 2015 $70 billion budget request on April 2. “
Cut off the money then.
The EXEMPT, treasonous, hated Congress
will continue to DO NOTHING
except enrich itself,
enrich their EXEMPT families,
and enrich their EXEMPT Staff.
Sibelius KNOWS she can do this
because the corrupt docile enabling EXEMPT ISSA
and the criminal EXEMPT CUMMINGS
did NOTHING previously.
Turns out Obamacare is a vehicle for consolidating Dummycrat power.....w/ a multi-billion dollar slush fund.
Q. Why all those O/Care delays and the recent enrolloment extension?
A. Because Sibelius is aiding and abetting Scumocrats to register enrollees as Democrats.....and helping Obama to wire- transfer tax dollars billions. And remember, taxpayers....once in the hands of the Dummycrat criminal hordes, the tax billions are untraceable.

This congress is as ball-less as Obama.
The O administration has taken the stand, “We are above the law.” enough times and had Congress do nothing just as O has done on the world scene - and O’s appointees are just as afraid of Congress as Putin is afraid of Obama.......NOT!
The nutless wonders in Congress will do nothing.
Obama has usurped both the Legislative and the Judicial branches, he has both issued “laws” and decided what laws are void.
Welcome to the Gray Bar Hotel, Klueless Kathy.
Didn’t she resign just after her pension eligibility kicked in? Revoke it.
Our corrupt Congress needs to offer her a better bribe to testify. And who would know better about the giving and taking of bribes than Congress. They should make her an offer she can’t refuse. She obviously craves power, money, and the finer things of life that only the government can offer. Congress needs to share. /s
Put the piece of trash in jail.
The decay of Congress has been going on for a long time, probably since 1913 or so. But the Obama presidency has accelerated matters, as he promised it would.
Just as LBJ/Nixon ended the role of Congress in war matters, the role of Congress in Executive Branch oversight is being ended right before our eyes.
And nobody knows, or cares to know.
The lawless henchmen of the 0bama Regime will do what they want and get away with it. The fundamental transformation to a banana republic proceeds apace.
A party to plunder and death (socialist’s totalitarian care) refuses to testify? Waterboard her. Elite economic terrorist. Oh, she was just taking orders from like-minded national socialists? Well, okay then.
See something, say something ALERT!
And the republicans will just bend over and say...thank you ma’am, may I have another?
Jail the bitch.
The legislative only because they have let him......
“And nobody knows, or cares to know.”
That is a stupid statement.
What do you thinnk the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, Mike Lee or Ted Cruz are all about?
It seems we now have bureaucrats whose motto when questioned is”FU”. Does this offend anyone in congress?
