HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius taken aback by ‘relentless’ ‘Obamacare’ politics

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said that she has been taken off guard by the concerted and continuing opposition to “Obamacare” and that her office has been pushed into public relations mode to persuade states to join the exchange.

The White House by and large thought the Supreme Court’s favorable ruling would have squashed all debate, she said, as The Hill reported.

“The politics has been relentless and that continues,” she said in a Reuters report. “There was some hope that once the Supreme Court ruled in July, and then once an election occurred there would be a sense that, ‘This is the law of the land, let’s get on board, let’s make this work.’”

But states are still battling — and that’s a surprise, she said.

She sucked as Govenor of Kansas what would make anyone think she could do better here?

Yes, she was terrible and because of her Kansas became known as the baby killer state. We had one of the most ruthless of the 3 late tri-mester Abortion Doctors in the USA, George Tiller, in Wichita, Kansas. People came from all over to have this serial killer abort their babies up to the 36th week! Sebellius allowed Tiller to continue murdering babies and never opposed this practice or had him arrested.  She continues to support Dr. Carhart in MD who is a late term abortion doctor. It was like having Heinrich Himmler as your neighbor! The only reason she was re-elected was her daddy's money and because she was the 1st Woman as KS Governor and idiots thought that was great. Normally, we are a RED state, primarily, thank God. She was an embarrassment to our state.

Why do you think Obama appointed her in charge of Human Health Services? Because he is just like her and drools over the thought of mass-murdering babies!

"Enter Kathleen Sebelius. When she was governor of Tiller’s home state of Kansas, Sebelius hosted Tiller and Carhart for dinner at the governor’s mansion. She wanted to honor them for the work they were doing, which largely consisted of late-term abortions on children who could all survive outside their mothers’ wombs, killed by a procedure so gruesome that the late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan—a pro-choice Democrat representing New York—condemned it as “infanticide.” This is the same Sebelius who now, as secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is the lead federal official for taking over the U.S. healthcare system with Obamacare. She is also the official who issued the HHS Mandate—the federal regulation requiring almost all employers in America with 50+ employees to cover abortion-related services, which is now slowly heading toward the Supreme Court for violating the religious freedoms of people of faith."

BREAKING: Hillary Admits She Was Wrong About ‘Deplorables,’
White Nationalists Only ‘0.15%’ Of U.S. Population

(TeaParty.org) – Hillary Clinton, the failed liberal presidential candidate who sealed her fate by slamming half of U.S. voters as a load of racist, sexist, xenophobic “deplorables,” just came out and admitted she was wrong, Breitbart reports.

Speaking with Hugh Hewitt on his radio show about her book “What Happened,” he asked her if she actually believes that half of the American population are white nationalists and racists.

“Of the 62.9 million people who voted for President Trump, do you have a number in your mind that you think are actually white nationalist racists of that 62.9 million, a real number?” he asked.

“No, I don’t,” she said.

Still have any doubts? Later in the conversation, Hewitt asked the same question again. “Do you think there are more than a half million, you know, honest-to-God white nationalists running around the United States?”

Clinton: “Probably not, no.”

A white nationalist would like to establish a sovereign country for people of white European heritage, an idea everyone across the political spectrum finds unspeakably intolerable and offensive. Now, the woman who declared that this was the desire of more than half of Americans is saying that virtually nobody wants it. On both counts, she’s completely wrong.

There’s no doubt that Clinton is probably going to try running again for president in 2020 – if she’s even alive that long – and might be trying to absolve her guilt and pander to all those “undecideds” who instantly went MAGA the second she blasted them as no-good racist deplorables for not voting Democrat.

However, Clinton did later admit that there were more white nationalists in America than she had thought. Expressing her worries that the internet and the presidency of Trump is giving them a voice and a platform, she hinted that under her iron scepter, she will attempt to silence them.

“Unfortunately, their views, which used to be quite beyond the mainstream, you know, have a much broader audience now, because you know, of being online and having outlets and media presence that can promote those attitudes,” she said.

How many white nationalists are there in the United States? That’s a question with troublingly few answers, since for some mysterious reason the liberal mainstream media – even though it claims all the time that white supremacy is on the rise – hasn’t actually bothered to take polls and just ask people whether they are white nationalists.

Actually, there’s a simple answer to that. If such a poll were to be taken, our bet is that liberals would be very disappointed to discover that almost nobody is actually a white nationalist, and so there would be no way they could continue scaring people with those fears. A tactic Clinton has apparently given up on.

Left-wingers are entirely convinced that some vague but large majority of people who say they aren’t racists or white nationalists, actually share a lot of views with them – which is why Nazi and white supremacist have become interchangeable with Republican and libertarian.

An article by Newsweek, which polled around 5,000 in order address this very question, came up with this response:

About 70 percent of respondents strongly agreed that people of different races should be “free to live wherever they choose” and that “all races are equal,” and 89 percent agreed that all races should be treated equally. At the same time, 31 percent of respondents said they strongly or somewhat agreed that the country needs to “protect and preserve its White European heritage,” while 34 percent strongly or somewhat disagreed and 29 percent said they neither agreed nor disagreed.

Reality is, it’s a little true that some Americans do have overlapping views with white nationalists, but the overwhelming majority of respondents STRONGLY believe that the races should be free, are equal, and should be treated equally. Sounds like none of these respondents would be joining a lynch mob or waging a second Holocaust any time soon – trying to equate the preservation of white heritage with support for slavery and genocide is obviously one of the Left’s biggest lies, and the very reason why 39 percent of people in this same survey believe white people are under attack.

So Clinton changes her mind, and now says she believes less than one percent of the American population are white nationalists – did she believe there were even LESS than that during the campaign trail? Either way, she’s either just lying or plain stupid.
