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.

CONFUSION:   Pelosi Says Constitution Spells Out ‘Two Co-Equal Branches’ Of Government

No Nancy. No.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi must be taking night classes at the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez School of Government.

Pelosi, the 79-year-old third-highest ranking official in the U.S. government, was speaking to the Center for American Progress today when she mistakenly said there are “two co-equal branches” of government, before correcting herself to say there are three.

Watch:

“First of all, let me just say, we take an oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” Pelosi said.

“Democrats take that oath seriously, and we are committed to honoring our oath of office. I’m not sure that our Republican colleagues share that commitment, and I’m not sure that the president of the United States does, too,” she claimed.

“So, in light of the fact that the beauty of the Constitution is a system of checks and balances— two co-equal branches— three co-equal branches of government,” she corrected with a laugh.

“A check and balance on each other,” she continued. “Con— Constitution spells out the pri— pa, uh, the duties of Congress and one of them is oversight of the president of the United States, another one of them is to impeach the president of the United States,” Pelosi said.

In November, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rallied supporters on Facebook to pitch in and help Democrats take back “all three chambers of Congress.”

“…the Progressive movement works and it wins in all districts…If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress– three chambers of government…,” she said during the virtual appearance.

She clarified that she meant the “presidency, the Senate and the House.”

According to the Constitution, the three branches of government are the legislative, executive and judicial.
