Sebelius ejected, Obama announces replacement
« on: April 11, 2014, 05:43:09 AM »
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

OK, all together now-----  "It's about Time"

But more heads need to roll. Like every law maker who voted for it.

I hope the rats are abandoning this sinking ship and will turn on Obama and his sociopathic administration. :0001:

In fairness, Sebilius was handed an impossible task: implementation of Obamacare as written by Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and a whole bunch of other Congressional Dhimmies and Staffers who found it easy to whip out high handed mandates, because they knew they would not be around to try and make any of it work.  She may be a casualty of Obamacare's implementation, but she is no victim.

Obama was true to type on this.  During the 2008 campaign he said repeatedly that he didn't need to have detailed plans on how to implement his ideas, he was going to put people in place that would do it all for him.  Lois Lerner is a sterling example of that, and so is Kathleen Sibelius.  She took the job precisely because she was a Democrat who was asked to do it by a Democrat President, not because she was some kind of health care or intarwebs expert.  She walked into this with her eyes wide open, and stuck to it through a disastrous roll out tied in with a presidential reelection campaign.  I'm not surprized she is tired.

Sibelius has made it reasonably clear that she would not be around at the end of the second term, and close of open enrollment is a logical time for her to pull the plug.  She has been able to stall Congress for years, but that time is now past.  Her relief is going to be facing one of the most brutal confirmation hearings since Robert Bork.  Sylvia Burwell has even less experience with health care and insurance than Sibelius does, and while she may have sterling qualifications from her service at OMB, HHS is a whole different kettle of rotting fish, and she is in for one hell of a time getting confirmed.  I would not be surprized if her confirmation hearings end up being delayed until after the elections, in which case she may well remover herself from the running.

No telling how this is all going to go, but it will certainly be interesting to watch....
