Sebelius Resigns, But Obamacare's Failures Remain

Because Mr. Obama Won't
Take the Responsibility!
Today In Washington, D.C. - April 11, 2014 :
“Kathleen Sebelius, the health and human services secretary, is resigning, ending a stormy five-year tenure marred by the disastrous rollout of President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act. . . . The departure comes as the Obama administration tries to move beyond its early stumbles in carrying out the law, convince a still-skeptical public of its lasting benefits, and help Democratic incumbents, who face blistering attack ads after supporting the legislation, survive the midterm elections this fall." ~ The New York Times

The Senate will reconvene at 4 PM today. It’s expected that a unanimous consent agreement will be offered to postpone until April 28th votes on the nomination of Michelle Friedland to be a United States Circuit Judge for the 9th Circuit and the controversial nomination of David Weil to be the administrator of the wage and hour division at the Department of Labor.

The House is not in session today.   They will return at 2 PM on April 28, 2014.
Yesterday the House passed:
H. Con. Res. 96 — "Establishing the budget for the United States Government for fiscal year 2015 and setting forth appropriate budgetary levels for fiscal years 2016 through 2024" by a vote of 219-205 - 219 Republicans for the budget plan and 193 Democrats voted against the plan.   Twelve Republicans also voted against the Ryan measure because the didn't believe it was not conservative enough.
S. 2195 (unanimous consent) — "To deny admission to the United States to any representative to the United Nations who has engaged in espionage activities against the United States, poses a threat to United States national security interests, or has engaged in a terrorist activity against the United States."

Back to Seblius' departure:
Unfortunately Secretary Sebelius’ departure won’t mean the well documented and continuing failures of Obamacare will depart with her. Americans are still experiencing higher premiums and higher deductibles, “bureaucratic nightmares,” Medicare cuts, the inability to access doctors and hospitals of their choice, and canceled insurance plans. All of these, of course, show that Obamacare remains the “train wreck” former Senator and Obamacare architect Max Baucus described a year ago, but they also show that this law continues to break the explicit promises made by President Obama and Democrats that “all this is going to lower premiums,” and that “if you have health insurance and you like it, and you have a doctor that you like, then you can keep it.”

And as has been the case for years, Americans continue to disapprove of Obamacare. A USA Today/Pew poll earlier this week found Americans disapproving by 50%-37%, and today a new Gallup poll confirms, “Americans' views on the broader healthcare law remain more negative than positive. Currently, 43% approve and 54% disapprove of the law . . . .”

In his statement on Sebelius’ resignation, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said, “It’s fitting that nearly one year after the primary legislative architect of Obamacare predicted it would be a train wreck that the government official most responsible for overseeing it reportedly is resigning.  Regardless of the administration’s public explanation for the Secretary’s exit, Obamacare has been a rolling disaster and her resignation is cold comfort to the millions of Americans who were deceived about what it would mean for them and their families. Countless Americans have unexpectedly been forced out of the plans they had and liked, are now shouldering dramatically higher premiums, and can no longer use the doctors and hospitals they choose. Beyond that, virtually everyone who has come into contact with this law has had new reason to worry about what it means for the government to control their health care. Secretary Sebelius may be leaving, but the problems with this law and the impact it’s having on our constituents aren’t. Obamacare has to go, too.”

It failed because it hurts more Americans than helps. Unless you are a insurance company.

She isn't at fault. It's a poorly written law and the company which was chosen to design the enrollment web site has very close ties with Obama's wife. She had no choice which company to pick for that.

Not that I support her, but in all fairness she had both hands tied behind her back. No one could have implemented it successfully.
