Sebelius blames Texas for low Obamacare enrollments

Political opposition in Texas to the federal health care overhaul hasn't helped enrollment numbers that lag behind expectations as next week's deadline to sign up looms, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Friday.

Texas has the highest rate of uninsured residents in the nation. As of March 1, about 295,000 people in Texas had signed up for coverage — less than half of the target of 629,000 enrollees originally set by the federal Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Gov. Rick Perry and Republican leaders have consistently slammed the health overhaul while simultaneously refusing Medicaid expansion in a state where nearly 1 out of every 4 residents is uninsured.

FIRE/ REMOVE / ARREST  /JAIL Kathleen Sebelius NOW for PERJURY!!!!

Couldn't say it any better!

Being a Democrat is a mental illness....

Texas may hold the key to undoing all of Obamacare.  Dr. Steven Hotze's case coming from Texas challenging Obamacare on the way it was unconstitutionally passed may be the best chance to undo the entire law.  Listen to Constitutionally Speaking Origination & Takings Clauses w/Andre... who is Dr. Hotze's attorney.

Listen to the discussion with Attorney Andrew Schlafly about Hotze v. Sebelius & the Origination Clause and Fifth Amendment Takings Clause challenge in United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. If this case is successful all of Obamacare is unconstitutional in violation of the Origination Clause. For more on the Origination Clause see: www.shestokas.com/?p=2216 and Three Cases that Should Doom Obamacare at: www.shestokas.com/?p=2374

All I will say to this one is tough turkey Dems...........! P.S

If it's not conservatives, it's Texas.

...as if choosing to be 'uninsured' is somehow an atrocity.

I know many people here in my state of West Virginia who can not afford the insurance.... When one has to decide whether to eat, buy meds and pay the necessary bills. Which would you all choose???

My state got Aetna Insurance for seniors so they could skip O-care  It pays well,serves the purpose

most of all, we can afford it.  Best thing to do with Obamacare-Total REPEAL!!  Changing your country is not the same as buying insurance. P.S.

I do not know many folks here in Texas that give a rats behind what sebelius thinks.  Well, there may be a group in the Socialist Republic of Austin.

SEBELIUS,  YOU ARE AS ROTTEN AS THEY COME!  WHEN ARE "YOU GOING TO TAKE RESPONSIBILTY FOR THE FAILURE OF OBAMARATCARE?  YOU ARE AS A DISGRACE TO THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT, AS MUCH AS YOUR FAVORABLE POSITION ON ABORTION!  JUST THINK IF "YOUR PARENTS HAD AN ABORTION", YOU WOULDN'T BE HERE TO SCREW THINGS UP AND KISS OBAMARATS ASS!

thank god for texas.....great and growing economy, low taxes, and lots of jobs, with a booming oil drilling program on private land, with people getting jobs that pay 80 to 1 hundred thou a year....if you want to drive yourself into a shithole...go live in Chicago or California, if you want to live free and become financially better...then go to texas.

ALERT ALERT

 President Trump Threatens To Close Southern Border 

President Trump issued a blunt warning to Mexico and other Central American nations over their failure to stop illegal migrants and criminal cartels targeting the U.S. southern border, saying he would send the military and shut down the southern border. Trump made his threat in tweet storm Thursday morning in which he said the newly negotiated trade deal with Mexico would take second place to border security.

Over 4,000 migrants are now reported to be in the caravan headed to the U.S.

A horde of thousands migrants from Honduras and other Central American countries on an organized to the U.S. are approaching the Mexican border. Mexico is reportedly sending federal police to stop them.

Over 16,000 illegal alien migrant family units were arrested at the southern border in September.

“I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S…..

….In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!..

….The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!”
