HHS Sec Kathleen Sebelius will not testify at congressional hearing on Obamacare


She cites a "conflict" in her schedule."

Can you believe this?

quote:

By Kristen Welker, NBC News White House Correspondent

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will not testify at a congressional hearing Thursday into breakdowns in the rollout of the federal Affordable Care Act, drawing more heat from House Republicans.

An HHS official confirmed Saturday that the secretary would not attend, citing a conflict in her schedule.

"We are in close communication with the committee and have expressed our desire to be responsive to their request,” the official said.

The hearing, before the House Energy and Commerce Committee, was scheduled this week to address glitches in the Obamacare website. Chairman Fred Upton, R-Mich., ripped Sebelius when initial reports indicated she would not attend.

"Secretary Sebelius had time for Jon Stewart, and we expect her to have time for Congress," he said in a statement, referring to her appearance last week on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show."

But L.A., Obamacare is law and we have to get over it. That's what the dems said and they include with the "get over it" that they aren't to even be questioned about anything. Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS, AP journalist and Rosen at Fox, the sequester bull shite of no white house tours which are now coming back (just in time for the holidays). This is what they do and they aren't held accountable because the people's watchdog has turned on the people and has been a watchdog for the democratic party for quite a while.

I don't see any reason for her testifying. that won't solve anything. I think that would be overreaching by the GOP. They don't get called in for hearings when they fail. I doubt she wanted to be responsible for that awful monstrosity. There is nothing Sebelius can do to make Obamacare a good thing, so why question her. Blame Bush for screwing up Iraq which led to the GOP losing control of congress. If GOP would get out of the way, Obamacare will help in the midterm election. You can't cure stupid though.

My take is that she, and Obama, owe it to the American people to give an account of why things are going so bad on this.

It's cute some people would think politicians would be mature enough to have this thought cross their mind.

Not directed at you BTW.

Where were you when Congress was holding hearings after Katrina? FEMA was called before Congress less than one month after the storm. And Michael Brown had already been fired as head of FEMA when he appeared before Congress. Kathleen Sebelius has not been fired for her organization's failure, and she can't find the time to make herself available to answer why her organization failed.

There is nothing to defend on ObamaCare. Congress needs to call in the web designers, software engineers, insurance companies, and Sebelius staff to get answers.

So, everyone but the boss should be required to give answers?

I would suspect that Sebelius would have the most knowledge pertaining to the current situation considering that she oversaw its production and release.

Agree, but if she won't testify then lay the fire around her. Find employees that will lay the blame at her feet.

I can believe it. I can also believe she doesn't know a thing about running HHS. She's just odumbo's HHS 'yes man' and head cheerleader.

If you want to know what really is going on you have to bring in the 2nd level of management. They are going to say, "Well, we told them this is the way it needs to be done, but our bosses, who got to the top by kissing ass, said no, it has to be this way, because our boss said that's the way it has to be."

Conflict of Interest or just conflict? Those are two different things.


Secondly, if its a conflict with her scheduling, is it the same as our UN Rep being "Unreachable" during the Syria hearings because she was vacationing in Europe?
