Posted on 10/17/2013 10:03:42 AM PDT by Morgana
The White House is standing by pro-abortion HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, saying there are no plans to fire her despite the abject failure that is Obamacare. A campaign to fire Sebelius has been growing since the abortive launch of the Obamacare exchange web sites.
From a report in The Hill:
The White House stood by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Tuesday, as Republicans called for her resignation over the botched rollout of ObamaCare.
The primary website for consumers to sign up for insurance is still not functioning as promised, two weeks since its launch.
White House press secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday that President Obama still trusts Sebeliuss stewardship of his signature legislative achievement.The secretary does have the full confidence of the president, Carney said during his daily press briefing.
Republicans have said Sebelius should resign or be fired over the problems facing healthcare.gov the portal for consumers in 36 states to shop for and buy insurance.
The site was unusable when it came online, and is still not fully functional two weeks later.
If this were a company and not the government, shed already be gone. She should be fired, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement Tuesday.
Carney conceded that there had been challenges within the website, but said officials were working 24/7″ to fix the portal.
Guy Benson, a conservative writer at Town Hall, laughed at the White House response: Anyone surprised? I mean, this guy still has his job, as does everyone who dropped the ball over Benghazi. Not to worry, Kathleen the program youre overseeing may be a trainwreck of epic proportions, but your job is safe. One veteran Congressional Democrat has been even more generous, opining that absolutely no one should be fired over the healthcare meltdown. Ah, the fringe benefits of government work. The laws technical snafus continue to pile up, and may be months away from operating somewhat adequately.
CLICK LIKE IF YOURE PRO-LIFE!
With Obamacare leading to taxpayer funding of abortions, massive layoffs at hospitals and medical centers and a botched system few seem to be able to sign up on, calls to fire pro-abortion HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius are growing.
Senate Republicans are already calling for Kathleen Sebelius to resign her post. And these voices of public disapproval will only grow louder in the days ahead, I can assure you, Town Hall reports.
Sebelius has been President Barack Obamas main organizer and cheerleader for Obamacare since its inception. But you know the government-run health care plan is bad when the Secretary of the Health and Human Services Department cant get anyone from her own state to sign up for it.
I wonder if she’s still claiming all the problems are due to the “overwhelming response”
Is it still a “nice problem to have” Kathleen?
Taking responsibility is so, like, private sector.
Why would they fire her? She’s doing exactly what they want her to do!
Probably a good decision. She can keep the failure going and create a lot more problems.
Fire her? Heck, they’ll be giving her a bonus. She has turned a 2,700 page ObamaCare bill into an 80,000 page monstrosity of regulation. Sebilius will be the one who ensures that every insurance policy in America covers abortion. There is no way this woman gets fired.
Keep her! There are more kids needing lung transplants to be denied.
Failure is a resume enhancement...................
Obama does not care that this is a fiasco in its implementation. If it feels right, (wanting everyone to have affordable health care) that is what matters. It might someday be fixed, which would be fine, but the main thing is getting to pat himself on the back for “caring”.
‘Heck of a job’ ... Sebi.
If Sebelius were Repbulican and this were a Republican Admin. she would have been long gone...
the democrats would have to seen to that...
the GOP needs to grow a pair or get out and put in a new Party...
She has the right amount of EVIL.
So does her boss, the evil muslim Barack Hussein obama!!!!
Of course she won’t be fired.
It’s like when Barney Frank nearly destroyed the economy and was rewarded by the Dems with a chairmanship.
And the GOP opposition is headed up by McCains Grahams & Jebs.
We’re presently living under a:
n. Government by the least qualified or most unprincipled people.
`Since it takes the worst type of person to become a successful politician, all democracies will eventually become kakistocracies.’
The founders would be appalled, and the resentment and anger continues to build in the People.
“The White House is standing by pro-abortion HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, saying there are no plans to fire her despite the abject failure that is Obamacare.”
Everything is going as planned.
Dems don’t fire dems. they dig in until the media forgets, and then we forget.
Obama compared the “glitches” with the website with the glitches of launching a new iPhone. If Apple had launched a product this bad, the person in charge of it would have been fired.
Feh. She’ll step down saying she needs more time with her ‘family’. (As if the Dalmations want HER) It’s coming. The Lefties are having the same problems with the system that everybody else is.
This code is so bad it may NEVER work!!!
