Skip to comments.Sebelius: Thanks to Obamacare, Law Student Can 'Devote Her Career' to Social Justice
Posted on 04/15/2012 2:10:17 PM PDT by Nachum
(CNSNews.com) Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said on Thursday that Obamacare had made it possible for a 25-year-old law student to devote her career to working on social justice issues instead of working for a big law firm.
At Rev. Al Sharptons 14th annual NAN conference, Sebelius touted the Administrations health care overhaul, which she also said was responsible for helping close racial and ethnic health gaps in the country.
Because of the steps weve taken there are 410,000 African American young adults across the country who were uninsured but now have insurance coverage under their parents health plan, thanks to the new law, Sebelius said.
Now one of them was with me in Miami a couple of weeks ago a 25-year-old law student named Ashley, she said, highlighting the student as a success story for the Affordable Care Acts policy that allows children to stay on their parents health care plans until they are 26.

No justice, no peace, kathleen.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Oh the horror of having to go out and make a lot of money.
...highlighting the student as a success story for the Affordable Care Acts policy that allows children to stay on their parents health care plans until they are 26.
So her "career" lasts from 25 years old to 26?
Thanks to the fall of man, Sebelius won’t live forever.
Hell ... she even delivered the pizza !!
Another activist “social justice” whiner. America already has too many of those. They need to throw her ass out of “law school”.
CNSNews.com) ”Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said on Thursday that Obamacare had made it possible for a 25-year-old law student to devote her career to working on social justice issues instead of working for a big law firm.”
This really means she has rich parents, and no student loan debt : )
Because of Obama's policies, there are five MILLION fewer jobs than there were three years ago. If those jobs came back, those 410,000 AA young adults could get jobs that include health insurance. If they really wanted to work, of course.
That's exactly what I was thinking. OK, but she still needs to find a real job when she turns 26!
Unfortunately, the number of lawyers society needs working on “social justice” issues is zero. So Obamacare has already resulted in a gross misallocation of human resources, in this instance.
It could also mean that she graduated in the bottom half of her class from a second or third tier law school, and it was that or flipping burgers at Mickey D's for a little more money.
IOW, be a Marxist community organizing rabblerouser rather than possibly doing productive and useful work. Got it.
Social justice is code for Marxism.
I didn’t think of that : )
HHS Sec. Kathleen SebeliusHOLY .... SHEET!

I’m willing to bet that this law student has access to extremely inexpensive health insurance through her law school.
Restated in more accurate terms: ObamaCare has made it possible for another aspiring anti-American lawyer to use her law career to become a leech on American society.
Oh well, this makes up for everything that’s wrong with 0bamaoscare.
Good to see Kathleen out there...engaged...mixing it up.I admire that she’s finally gotten over the *tragic* assassination of her very close friend and ally,Tiller The Killer.
“At Rev. Al Sharptons 14th annual NAN conference..”
So we now have high administration officials attending a racial huckster’s conference. Good Heaven’s this nation is in serious trouble and we still have people who want to sit out this election if Romney were the nominee.
My feeling is that the next time Obama voters need good medical care they can go to a law student or a lawyer, or a liberal Congressperson or Senator, or a liberal journalist, or even Obama to get it. These are the people who think they're smarter than anyone else in the world, and who have been perfectly happy to screw over the public and those of us who actually studied and practice medicine.
I doubt most of them would be capable of making it through medical school, or getting an engineering degree etc., but since liberal voters have been perfectly happy to anoint them as the enlightened elite, let the liberal voters have Obama diagnose their illness. Let them have Nancy Pelosi look over their blood work and their imaging studies. Let them go to this aspiring social justice law student for their cancer treatment.
So the government pays lawyers to work against the interests of the taxpayers who provide the freebies that make it possible for her to work against the interests of the taxpayers who provide the freebies that make it possible for her to work against the interests of the taxpayers who provide the freebies that make it possible for her to work against the interests of the taxpayers who provide the freebies that make it possible for her to work against the interests of the taxpayers who provide the freebies that make it possible for her to...
“Social justice is code for Marxism.”
Exactly. Isn’t that one of Alinsky’s semantic tricks?
Similar to `community organizers’ = communists.
Never call what you are or what you’re doing by its real name.
All those justice seekers will be very busy trying to figure out how to get the producers to work harder for the looters and moochers.
People do not work against their own best interest.
Social justice is theft.
Social Justice: “Gimme everything you got, Whitey”.
Amazing how the Nation's vernacular has evolved into full Communist-speak.
The sooner this election fully solidifies the new age of Communism in the U.S. the better...Then the only realistic process to restore the former Republic and it's Constitution can begin in earnest...
Did you ever read a bigger crock?
If the 25 y/o is about to graduate from law school, that means she’s been there 3 years, since before O’care was passed. Not having coverage thru her parents didn’t keep her from attending law school. Not sure who paid her $3K ‘contraception’ tho.
Is Kathleen saying Ashley got thru law school without student loans? OR does Ashley have $150K in student loans but no doctor’s bills (which for the typical 22-25 y/o aren’t much? What, exactly, is her message here?
Oh, yeah, Kathleen, today most law students, even many from Top Tier schools, are graduating with debt only, no job offers even from Big Law, because your boss has made the economy worse than he found it.
Basic health care coverage is usually included in a student’s tuition fees, she doesn’t need her parent’s coverage.. The whole thing is just a show for election time.
Scotus - if you get rid of Obama are you’re racist.
