Skip to comments.CNN: Sebelius Falsely Claimed She's Not Eligible for ObamaCare
Posted on 10/30/2013 12:06:00 PM PDT by ColdOne
As CNN points out, that is simply false:
Sebelius is actually legally allowed to get insurance over the exchange but she would have to forego the employer contribution to her premiums.
In the Federal Employee Health Benefits Plan, that employer contribution accounts for a majority of her premiums. In order to get a private health insurance plan through Obamacare, Sebelius would have to pass up what surely amounts to more than $10,000 in annual compensation.

The Obmommys are going to wish they’d exempted the MSM.
What? Someone in the Obama Administration not telling the truth? How shocking!
Shocking, and I checked, it really is on the cnn.com.
The world is imploding...OMG !!!!
Lies coming from the regime: not shocking.
CNN reporting it as lies: absolutely astounding. Somebody needs to be sent back to “camp” for a little “re-thinking.”
Is the administration losing their iron-gripped control over the media? I guess time will tell.
Would be nice if the reporters would ask Senate and House Dems if they are going to opt out of their Federal Health Benefits Plan and sign on to ObamaCare, since they think it is the greatest thing since slice bread.
This story will be re-written and the link changed, in 10, 9, 8,
They are merely getting ready to dump Obama and start bolstering up Her Thighness. They know Obama is done. You watch, Mrs. Clinton will start talking about fixing things. She will act more moderate, even though we know she is not.
One suspects some enlightened self-interest.
At some point, even the obediently serving, fourth-estate, fifth-column, lock-step Marxist (and alleged) "news" peeps will realize that before long...
...THEY and their families will be forced into the exchanges, spending weeks on phone hold to get a med appointment (in 4 months) with an overworked and disinterested nurse practitioner apprentice trainee.

We teach our children not to lie.
Every lie is a sin against God.
Breaking oaths to God is no problem within the beltway.
There will be a special place in Hell for Obama.
Cruella Sebelius lies. Again.
If she was really very, very sorry, wouldn’t she stop all the damned lying?
In the Federal Employee Health Benefits Plan, that employer contribution accounts for a majority of her premiums.
Of course all of us here at FR are jumping up & down for joy that we provide her Excellency, Miss Sebelius, with such a generous contribution to her health insurance premiums that otherwise would make it impossible for her to participate in the high premium cost of the ACA exchanges. It wouldn't be right for her to turn down such heartfelt employer gratitude. Such a HUGE and selfless sacrifice she made by accepting those contributions we forced upon her. She is such an inspiration to all of us little people. And I will feel proud of my own personal sacrifice when I might one day be clinging onto life inside a Hospital and have to accept the Obamacare Death Panel decision to be terminated so that Miss Sebelius will never have to face such a fate.
I'm ready! Sign me up!
I think it was required that she receive a letter from her employer that informed her that she has the right/option to get her own health insurance instead of getting it through her employer. I think that is part of the ACA.
Under regular circumstances somebody in private enterprise working at a company that offers health insurance can’t use the exchange unless the cost to the employee is more than 9.5% of their pay. If it is a firm over 50 FTE’s they get fined $3K if the employee goes to the exchange.
Maybe the media wants Joe to take over knowing if he gets to be president for at least one day, he won’t run against Hillary.
