Let the #obamacare internal purges begin!
Contra @BrianFaughnan, only one so far: The [exquisitely painful Senate] hearing [for HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius] came on the same day that the Obama administration announced that the chief information officer at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, whose office supervised the creation of the troubled federal website, was retiring. The official, Tony Trenkle, will step down on Nov. 15 “to take a position | Read More »
For all of your “Explain to folks how bad Sebelius was today” needs. #obamacare
The NRCC went ahead and created a useful list called the “7 Most Ridiculous Things Kathleen Sebelius Said At Today’s Hearing:” there were more than seven, of course, but these were particularly… well, ‘good’ is not really the right term, eh? Anyway, this one’s my favorite: 2. “The website never crashed.” “We were anxious to get the website up and running and functional, which we | Read More »

On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Avik Roy to discuss another delay in the implementation of Obamacare, how the partisanship of Kathleen Sebelius is making Obamacare even worse and Harry Reid’s claim that this policy eventually leads to a single-payer health system.

Sebelius and the ObamaCare shakedown
In the small, cold hours of a dreary Washington night, the Washington Post finds a poor little waif named Kathleen Sebelius trotting from the door of one luxurious health-care mansion to the next, begging for a crust of bread or half-eaten apple to help her sickly little brother, Boondoggle O’care, make it through the night after his evil Republican stepfather left him to die: Health | Read More »
Court Defies HHS on Plan B
To be to the left of President Obama on the issue of abortion seemed an impossible task, until Friday’s ruling by Federal Judge Edward Korman. Defying Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, with whom the president sided on the issue, Korman ruled that the FDA may not stand in the way of the emergency contraceptive, Plan B, being sold over-the-counter with no restrictions on age. | Read More »
Sect. of Interior Ken Salazar May Have Violated Hatch Act
Former White House counsel associate Scott Coffina accused U.S. Secretary of Interior Ken Salazar of violating the Hatch Act during a recent campaign trip to Colorado. The Colorado Observer broke the story of the possible Hatch Act violation today. Salazar, along with Sen. Udall, Sen. Bennet, and Gov.

How Dumb Do You Think I Am?
From the diaries by Erick We don’t have all the specifics. But it is pretty apparent that Obama’s “deal” on contraceptives is a trick. As to Catholic institutions, Catholic hospitals and universities would pay insurance companies premiums, which would pay for contraceptives and abortifacients. Evil doesn’t become good because it’s laundered through a third party. But, says HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, premiums would go down | Read More »
Lame Duck II: The Sequel
From the diaries by Erick A lot can happen between now and November, 2012. But let me make a prediction: The next month will either set Barack Obama on a “glide path” toward electoral victory -– or a glide path toward electoral defeat. The Obama-generated narrative is that the next 30 days will be spent trying to come up with a “magic number” (between $10 | Read More »
How Obama Can Double His Budget Cuts By Doing His Job
Earlier today, Moe Lane documented the monumental *cough* $775 Million budget cut the White House has recommended. This figure struck me as an interesting one when compared with a certain report the Obama Administration has been dodging since November — Ernst & Young’s comprehensive examination of the Dept. of Health and Human Services’ budgetary lapses. According to the 3 MB report available for download at | Read More »

Sebelius counsels… ‘Reeducation’ for Obamacare.
“Reeducation.” Reeducation. Yeah, sure, using that term will save at-risk Democrats in swing seats and states. Now, it’s important to note here that HHS Secretary Sebelius was being inarticulate and stupidly insensitive here, not threatening. She didn’t mean to evoke the Cold War era specter of Communist concentration camps where enemies of the State were systematically tortured into reflexively supporting whatever Dear Leader was in | Read More »
