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."

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Bill and Hillary Clinton Brutally
Mocked After Defending

View image on Twitter

Crooked Bill and Hillary Clinton were brutally mocked Monday after defending the Clinton Foundation on social media.

The Clinton Foundation’s official Twitter account tweeted Saturday, “ICYMI: President @BillClinton wrote on Facebook this week about our work improving lives in the United States and around the world, from fighting climate change to combating the opioid crisis.”

Former President Bill Clinton’s Facebook post served to correct the record about so called fake news smearing the Clinton Foundation. Naturally, he linked to far left sites such as Snopes and Politifact to debunk the smears.

After touting all the charity the Clinton Foundation brings to hurricane victims, farmers in East Africa and combating Climate Change, Bill Clinton unleashed on Breitbart News for spreading conspiracy theories and false information about the Foundation.

Nevertheless, spreading false information about the Foundation continues, apparently as part of an ongoing strategy to distract attention from real problems and, over the long run, to completely erase the line between fact and fiction.

For example, just a few weeks ago on MSNBC, during a discussion of the President’s disparaging remarks about Haiti, his designated defender repeated the ridiculous assertion that I had taken money raised for Haiti for personal use and was responsible for the apparent suicide of a Haitian who knew all about it. Thankfully, the host cut her off, refusing to provide a forum for known false conspiracy theories. I’m proud of the work the Foundation and I have done in Haiti and will give you a more detailed report on that soon.

These attacks on the Foundation began in earnest with the 2015 publication of the Breitbart-inspired book, Clinton Cash. I thought the Foundation staff did a good job debunking the book’s charges, but they were published as written even in “mainstream” outlets, and even now the charges continue to be repeated online and in forums favorable to those who make them.

I have never responded personally to these charges, but out of respect for our donors, partners, and those who work at the Foundation, I think I should—because as we see, attacks, no matter how outrageous, can have a long life.

Bill Clinton also argued Chelsea’s wedding wasn’t paid for by Clinton Foundation donations nor do any of them receive salaries.

No, Foundation funds were not used to pay for Chelsea’s wedding. It’s not only untrue, it’s a personal insult to me, to Hillary, and to Chelsea and Marc. It was a wonderful day that Hillary and I were grateful to be able to pay for.

Clinton also argued the foundation was given 4 out 4 stars from Charity Navigator, Platinum from GuideStar, A from Charity Watch, and a 20 out of 20 score for meeting all of the Better Business Bureau’s good practice standards.

Hillary Clinton tweeted: Want to hear the real story of the @ClintonFdn? Read this: 

 Trump supporters savaged the Clintons.

How about when Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Oman donated MILLIONS to your foundation when you were Secretary of State and then you conducted official US business with them? 

What about how Haitian villages that you raised money for are STILL without the homes, schools and infrastructure you promised for them? Where did it go Hillary? Where's that money? Why did you plunder the great people of Haiti? 

  

Unless it explains

Benghazi 33,000 missing emails  Haiti  Destroyed electronics  Missing money
Uranium One Etc

Then no. Nope.  
Not on Presidents day.  

Care to tell us how much the Foundation pays out in salaries each year? 

 

Slush fund? Pay-to-play? Salaries for Sid Blumenthal?
Fraud in Haiti?  The vast majority of funds don't reach people in need?
That's the real story, right?
