Secretary Sebelius Should Be FIRED

About two years ago, this Blogger happened to be on a train going from Washington DC to New York City with my wife.   Sitting in First Class, just a few seats up in front of us, with her Security Guards, was Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sibelius.   As you might imagine, since this was just a year or so after the enactment of ObamaCare, I really wanted to give this woman my harshest verbal assault.   However, my wife convinced me to shut up because I probably would have ended up arrested and in jail.   Well the chickens have come home to roost. 

After Sibelius and her department developed more than 23,000 pages of regulations to implement the 2,700 page monstrosity that is ObamaCare,  this train wreck went live on October 1, 2013.   Guess what, the website that Sibelius spent more than three years and $600 million developing crashed.  What a surprise.   More than 30 states declined to develop their own ObamaCare Exchanges, which means that millions of interested Americans, if nothing else than to look, went on the Federal Health Care Exchange.   Keep in mind that employees who get medical insurance from their employers are not eligible to buy coverage on the ObamaCare Federal Exchange; but there is so much confusion that many may not know that to be the case.  As such, the 80 - 90% of Americans that have medical insurance from their employers may very well be bogging down the website as looky lou's, who are actually ineligible, just play around to see pricing.  

It doesn't matter.   After spending more than $600 million to get this website up and running, it is inoperative.  And, the whole premise of ObamaCare is that young people would pay more for medical insurance so that older people, who actually use more medical services, would pay less.   This makes no economic sense.  Further, all the "free mandates" in ObamaCare have actually raised the cost of medical insurance.  All of Obama's promises were lies.  The cost is not less.  People will lose their current benefits as companies are cutting benefits because ObamaCare did not bend the cost curve.   More employees will be made 29 hour part time staff members to avoid ObamaCare entirely.   Somebody's head needs to roll for this failure. 

It would be great if we could get rid of Obama now for this failure; but short of Impeachment, or pre-mature death, which are both highly unlikely, Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sibelius has to go.   Sibelius should be FIRED.  Of course, that will never happen because no one in the Obama Administration takes responsibility for anything.  They can't blame Bush II for this one, or anyone else.  Sibelius had the money to make it work.  ObamaCare is a train wreck.  She has to go.
