Obama, Sebelius Blame ‘Right-Wing Media,’ ‘Billionaires’ For Obamacare Failures
The Daily Caller ^ | June 17, 2014 | by Sarah Hurtubise

Former Secretary of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius took aim at her “hostile” right-wing opponents Tuesday, in her first speech after resigning her top post.

“We had right-wing media, leadership in Congress who was determined on the House side to stop this law at any cost, shadow political organizations, hostile governors, hostile legislators, all working to make sure you couldn’t do the job that was so important,” Sebelius gushed, only once mentioning “our well-known issues with the website” putting a damper on customers getting coverage.

She wasn’t alone. President Obama pre-taped a message for the conference, taking the opportunity to snipe at those who continue to oppose the health-care law in a short video.

“We cannot let up now,” Obama said. “As we look towards 2015, we need you to keep telling your stories, keep spreading the word, keep standing up for folks trying to get coverage — because the other side has billionaires funding campaigns to scare the very people the Affordable Care Act would help.”

Obama and his entire cohort of criminal con-men should decorate lampposts someday.

I can think of millions of “opponents” who lost perfectly good insurance because of Obamacare.

I guess it’s too much to expect any of them to fess up and tell the American people the truth - party power is more important than the betterment of the country, plus - they are in it so deep, only death will alleviate their guilt.

They must have some powers I am unaware of.

If it was a good policy, it would soar.

The only people the "Affordable Care Act" helps are Obama and his cronies... but clearly, they are scared by those campaigns.

fewer available doctors, higher deductibles and much higher premiums that obozocare mandates had nothing to do with obozocare failing? Pretty soon the lies become the truth, especially to the utopian idiots who support the criminal in the WH and the other commie democrats of whom all have their heel on the throat of this nation

I saw a Prius near Harvard Square a few days ago (yah,*that* Harvard Square) sporting a bumper sticker “I Heart Symbol Obama Care”.I walked by her as she was stopped at a light and said “so you love Obama Care? You must be exempt”.She snarled and drove away as the light changed.

As if the code worked before, and is working now.

Syphillius is an idiot.

The unfiltered fart gas that comes out of her pie hole should be regulated by the EPA.
