March 13th, 2020 11:07 AM
Even the left now admits that Obamacare failed. The former Health and Human Services (HHS) secretary who helped oversee implementation of the disastrous Obamacare law just argued that “27-28 million” Americans have no health insurance. And that’s about 10 years after the Affordable Care Act, also known as “Obamacare,” was enacted in 2010.
Better Late Than Never: Really?
November 28th, 2017 1:25 PM
The English poet of the Middle Ages, Geoffrey Chaucer, is generally credited with coining the phrase that has been updated in modern English to read, "better late than never." It means to do something or to arrive later than expected may not be good, but it is better than not at all. That may not be true in the case of former President Bill Clinton's enablers and apologists for his sexual…

November 1st, 2017 9:41 AM
Hollywood will do anything to clutch onto the last shreds of the Obama administration. Just ask Alyssa Milano. Newsweek reported that actress Alyssa Milano, former HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius, and actor Bradley Whitford are out to sell Obamacare.

Nets Skip Gruber, ObamaCare, Hong Kong During Year in Review Roundups
December 31st, 2014 11:33 AM
Each of the network morning shows devoted some time on Wednesday to looking back at the biggest news stories of year and, while they certainly could not have included every story in the allotted time, they all failed to spend even a few seconds on topics such as Jonathan Gruber, pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, President Obama’s unpopularity, and the Hobby Lobby case to name a few.

In an interview with USA Today published on its website Tuesday, former Obama administration Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius tried to distance herself from the numerous comments by ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber, but still found a way to sound like Gruber when explaining why Americans oppose the health care law.

Column: Kathleen Sebelius, Scapegoat
April 16th, 2014 5:56 PM
Dictionary.com offers two definitions for scapegoat: "1. A person or group made to bear the blame for others or to suffer in their place; 2. Chiefly biblical. A goat let loose in the wilderness on Yom Kippur after the high priest symbolically laid the sins of the people on its head. Lev. 16:8,10,26."
Both definitions seem to fit last week's announcement of the "resignation" of Kathleen…

Univisión y Telemundo se apuntaron una a su favor en la batalla por el periodismo honesto.

Andrea Mitchell Fails to Ask Kathleen Sebelius Obvious (HuffPost) Ques
April 13th, 2014 6:14 PM
Andrea Mitchell needs to turn in her journalism card...now!
She completely blew the opportunity to ask outgoing Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius a question that would have shed light on whether she voluntarily resigned or, as many have speculated, she was fired by the White House. Despite interviewing Sebelius for over five minutes on Meet The Press (video after the jump…

April 12th, 2014 9:13 AM
While HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius was getting a polite shove out the door, PBS NewsHour analyst Mark Shields offered a note of disclosure: “Well, first of all, let me just admit up front, Kathleen Sebelius has been a personal friend. For 46 years, I have known her.” He even oddly said she “stepped up manfully, to use a bad adverb” in taking the blame for Obamacare.
But Shields and his…

April 11th, 2014 10:25 PM
White House spokesman Jay Carney was sneering at reporters again Friday.
The Washington Free Beacon reports that Jared Rizzi, a reporter with Sirius XM Radio, was accused of being “pretty lame” by Carney in questioning how resigning HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was absent from the podium and went unmentioned in the president’s April 1 “victory lap” for Obamacare signups.
