Skip to comments.America's Most Powerful Woman (As The Overseer Of ObamaCare)
Posted on 06/08/2010 4:30:02 PM PDT by Kaslin
She's the most powerful woman in the country, exercising enormous control over the life of every American.
Not First Lady Michelle Obama or House Speaker Nancy Pelosi or even Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, though they have a lot of power. No, I'm referring to Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Ms. Sebelius was handed one of the biggest jobs in Washington when she left the Kansas governor's office to run HHS. She oversees about 70,000 employees (full-time equivalents), manages a budget of about $860 billion (for 2010) and runs the largest health insurance programs in the world, Medicare and Medicaid.
And now Congress has handed Ms. Sebelius the authority to implement the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (aka, ObamaCare).
A quick search of the legislation reveals that the word "Secretary" appears nearly 3,000 times in the 2,700-page legislation. And the vast majority of those references are to the secretary of HHS.
Over and over again we see: "the Secretary shall establish"; "the Secretary shall promulgate regulations"; "the Secretary shall develop standards"; "the Secretary shall periodically review"; "as the Secretary deems are important"; "the Secretary may develop and impose appropriate penalties"; "the Secretary may adjust the rates"; "if the Secretary determines necessary"; and "the Secretary has the authority."

Perfect ... George Tiller’s sweetie-pie running everyone’s medical care. The icon of the “punished with a baby” presidency.
They were only kidding.
Jack Kevorkian wasn’t available. Sebelius was the next best choice. From Barry0’s POV.
Pardon me? Didn’t she lose her law license over some financial junk due to a hospital or maybe covering up by marrying Obama to cover up he may not belong in America?
Hardly someone we could trust.
Hillary makes me gag. Sebelius sends an ice-cold shiver up my spine.
Yes, Sebelius is hands-on evil. Hillary might be but just hasn’t had the chance ... hard to tell.
I couldn’t find anything that she had been a lawyer. I found that she used to be executive director and chief lobbyist for the Kansas Trial Associaton. Also her husband is a federal magistrate judge. Neverthe less I would not trust her either
In fact Hillary even voted against that new-born protection bill that Barry0 supported twice. Even if that was just political strategy at least she could see that much.
Sebelius gave a shout out to the SEIU purpleshirts for their support - right after some of them beat up that conservative black guy. She should have been canned.
First governor to sign the unconstitutional Uniform Child Abduction Prevention Act (UCAPA)...
And America’s conservatives are silent as it becomes law in the tenth state this month.
It is now at the 25% mark.
Gee, what other laws should we pass to treat Americans as guilty for engaging normal, ordinary acts.
It’s for the kids you know.
Their about to get a size 15 boot up their rear ends in November.
another reprobate Catholic proving just dangerous such are.
She and Obama met at a law firm where she was working as a lawyer. Both do not have law licenses anymore and it’s anybody’s guess as to why.
I’ve always had the feeling that the Clintons wanted us all dead - any of us that opposed them in any way. They all wish they were Stalin or Castro, able to kill their opponents at will.
Yes, I think so too. It drives me nuts when people say “at least they’re American, they wouldn’t be so bad.” BS! They would just be better at camouflaging their agenda. The same agenda as Barry0’s.
