Kathleen Sebelius: Secretary of Health and Human Services
Hailed by Democratic supporters as the czar of the Health Care industry, hand picked by Barack Obama – despite the opposition protests and controversy shrouding Sebelius.
Sebelius has been one of the vehement supporters of the Affordable Healthcare Act, and the one who directly had over-sight of the Healthcare.gov website creation – and it’s Titanic failure. She is also in charge of the of the healthcare of every American.
Big deal, huh? Sure it is. Sebelius, while governor of Kansas had been involved in shady, and highly controversial actions with the support and her involvement with less that favorable abortion doctors and abortion clinics. Her friendship and supporter of Late-Term Abortionist George Tiller lead to the protests of Republican officials. In addition, she had been criticized while Kansas governor for exponentially growing government.
Lest I remind the reader, that Barack Obama has been criticized for the same ideologies. Late-term and post-birth abortions, growing government and careless government spending. All of which connect to the ideologies of the Director of Office of Science and Technology Policy John P. Holdren. (click here for more on Holdren).
While Sebelius entertained Tiller and the entire staff of his abortion clinic, Women’s Health Care Services, TIller was under criminal investigation by the Attorney General’s office, which led to the filing of 19 criminal charges against him for committing illegal late term abortions. Also at that time, the Legislature was considering a resolution forcing the Attorney General to charge Tiller, amid intense public pressure.
Kansans have long recognized that Kathleen Sebelius is an unmitigated disaster. As Kansas governor and, before that as insurance commissioner, Ms. Sebelius unleashed a fury of government mandates that ultimately served to chase several insurance companies out of the state and left tens of thousands of Kansans without insurance.
In 2009, the executive director of Kansans For Life declared that there was “no real excuse” for Senator Roberts’ support of Sebelius, adding that it was “wrong” and “regrettable.”
“We sincerely believe that today’s vote is one that Americans will come to grievously regret as they meet up with Ms. Sebelius’ policies in their hospital rooms or, more to the point, denial of those rooms and essential health services”.
If anyone should recognize that the Kathleen Sebelius version of government-knows-best is a betrayal of Kansas values, it should be Senator Roberts. After all, before his three-decade tenure in Congress, Pat Roberts spent another decade on Capitol Hill working for Kathleen Sebelius’ father-in-law.
Once she was in Washington, the Sebelius disaster continued. On the eve of the health care vote in 2010, Kathleen Sebelius buried her own report that gave cover to President Obama’s false promises. Her report exposed the reality that ObamaCare would increase the cost of health care by $400 billion over a decade and cause 14 million Americans to lose their insurance policies. By withholding this critical information, she assured ObamaCare would be passed by Congress.
In 2012, investigators announced Kathleen Sebelius was in violation of federal law when she campaigned for Barack Obama’s re-election. Soon thereafter it was discovered that Ms. Sebelius was shaking down private companies in the health care sector in hopes of propping up the president’s already crumbling health care law.
Earlier this year, Kathleen Sebelius sat in judgment of 11-year old Sarah Murnaghan, whose tender life depended on a lung transplant denied to her not by her doctors but by untouchable bureaucrats. After rejecting Sarah’s desperate pleas, Kathleen Sebelius–herself the consummate bureaucrat–coldly stated: “Someone lives and someone dies.”
Kathleen Sebelius is an unmitigated disaster. The untold misery left in her wake as Kansas insurance commissioner and governor and now head of HHS is breathtaking and heartbreaking.
This is the human-being hand picked by president Barack Obama to over-see yours, mine and every American healthcare – our very lives are in her hands. And it isn’t good!
Sebelius has a well-documented history of blocking legislations and laws that would have regulated abortion clinics and doctors performing abortions; protecting women and providing better, humane methods of the procedures – but not shocking, considering her “someone lives and someone dies” attitude.
