VIDEO: Sebelius Questioned On Why She Still Has A Job

Accountability

http://youtu.be/blETvpds2j0

Kathleen Sebelius is somehow still employed by the taxpayer, despite the rolling, continuous disaster that is Obamacare.

But what if Sebelius were employed in the private sector and not government?

Would she have been fired by now?

Our camera caught up with the secretary of Health and Human Services to ask her just that.

Sebelius, however, wasn’t too keen on answering the question, as you’ll see above. And it’s of little surprise why. In the private sector — where profit, loss, efficiency, deadlines, and benchmarks actually mean something — Sebelius wouldn’t stand a chance. Heck, it was just two weeks ago that she told Congress the individual mandate to purchase health insurance and the open enrollment period wouldn’t be delayed. And then days before the March 31 deadline, Sebelius’s department delayed both by another two weeks at least —  the 17th Obamacare delay in last year alone — and inextricably claimed that it wasn’t, in fact, an extension, but was like keeping the polls open on Election Day.

Such word games aren’t recommended in the employment world outside of Washington, D.C.

But Sebelius’s “boss” is Barack Obama, and how many people off the top of your head can you name that he’s held accountable?

We also asked Sebelius if she’d resign if the White House fails to hit the enrollment target for Obamacare.

Recall that the original goal was seven million people. As we moved closer to the March 31, that number was revised downward to six million. And now, with the latest delay, the White House is giving itself even more time to hit the mark.

So what if Sebelius misses six million enrollees after arbitrarily allotting herself an extra two weeks? Will she offer her resignation then?

She was unresponsive to that query, too, and it could be because she knows that getting a total of six million to sign up at this point is unlikely. As of mid March, sixty percent of uninsured Americans weren’t aware of even the original March 31 deadline, the Washington Post reported.

Sixty percent!

When her department wasted hundreds of millions of dollars on a deeply flawed website, Secretary Sebelius said, “You deserve better, I apologize,” adding that she’s “accountable to you” the taxpayer.

But is she really?

Update: Laughably, the administration is touting that they’ve enrolled six million individuals days before the March 31 deadline. And, without any scrutiny, the media are “reporting” that number like good sycophants. Forget for a moment that White House’s original goal was seven million, here are the questions that remain: 1) How many of these so-called “enrollees” actually paid their first month’s premium, you know, how the word “enroll” or “buy” means in virtually every other context? 2) How many of those out of the six million previously had insurance and only “enrolled” on an exchange because their insurance was cancelled due to Obamacare?

But don’t hold your breath too long expecting answers.

I leave you with this:
