HHS Sebelius tries to scrape smidgen of corruption off her shoe

President Obama maintains there’s not a “smidgen of corruption” in the IRS — and Lois Lerner doesn’t have a single thing to say about it — at least nothing she’s willing to say under oath.

Now there’s not a “smidgen of corruption” in another Obama administration department: Heath and Human Services under the astute direction of one Kathleen Sebeluis.

According to the Washington Examiner, “Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has stopped fundraising for an outside group working to promote Obamacare called Enroll America. Funny, I seem to recall Secretary Sebelius initially saying that she was not fundraising with any non-government entities whom she regulates for Obamacare — ahh, maybe an old volleyball head injury.

The Examiner has posted a series of stories about Sebelius’ fundraising based on emails received in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.

Sebelius has argued that her fundraising activity has been legal and proper and that she did not target groups her department regulates. But according to the Washington Examiner report, there seems to be an issue of conflict of interest.

H&R Block, one of the private entities Sebelius admits to soliciting, had pledged $500,000 to Enroll America but a company spokesman says that H&R Block ultimately decided against making the donation. H&R Block, the largest tax preparation service in the country, stands to reap a windfall in new business by determining whether clients qualify for Obamacare subsidies.

Then there is the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, a nonprofit that supports anti-obesity efforts and other health outreach campaigns, last year said it had contributed $14 million to Enroll America. It owns more than $1 billion worth of stock in Johnson & Johnson, which HHS regulates. Kaiser Permanente, also regulated by HHS which gave an unspecified sum, was one of several private entities that donated a combined $27 million to Enroll America.

Of course liberal progressives will find a way to say, well, Bush did this too. After all, Rachel Maddow just blamed the invasion into Ukraine by Vladimir Putin on President George W. Bush — doggone five years and they are still riding that dead horse.

But if Obamacare is soooo good, why does the President keep delaying portions of it –unconstitutionally I might add? And why does the HHS Secretary need to extort money from groups she regulates in order to fund advertisement for Obamacare?

Just simple questions, and perhaps some of you very astute liberal progressive trolls can enlighten us? Heck, there’s no need to repeal Obamacare — Obama is doing a fine job of dismantling it himself. Unfortunately, this tyrannical corrupt incompetence only hastens the demise of the American healthcare system. And don’t tell me it’ll get better if we just wait. Exactly when does that happen, after the 50th delay?

Every time I see her picture, I think of the Evil Fairy Godmother in Snow White.

She is the daughter of John Gilligan, once the governor of Ohio.
He was one of the most liberal governors Ohio has ever had.
She also served as the governor of Kansas.
Ask them about her.

Why should we be surprised by any corruption with this administration? Even the good ole mafia couldn’t hold a candle to the current Administration!

She like her Master, bho, if her mouth is moving she is lying. Breaking laws by these liberals seems to be common place. Acceptable by their own standards.
As far as Rachel Madcow is concerned, bho made a deal with the ukraine if the disarmed their nuke and weapons and got rid of their ammo we would protect them. If this is not the biggest case against gun control I do not know what is. If the Ukraine still had their weapons Do you believe Russia would have gone in so boldly? I think not

The Obamacare spin is in full effect. Couldn’t keep your plan? The greedy insurance companies cancelled it of their own accord. Couldn’t keep your doctor? You’re a liar. Can’t afford your premiums? You must have the wrong plan. Don’t think the law is working? It’s working, we just need flexibility to change it whenever we want. Don’t have the signup numbers that were expected? People are just slow to catch on, that’s all. Lost your employer-provided plan? It’s not because the employer’s costs went up, they are just greedy. The spin is endless!

When will it all stop? The lies, the blatant violations of law, the destruction of our constitution, the taking from veterans and giving to illegals. How can you justify what these democrats have done to destroy our once great republic? Now they want to disarm the adults and dumb down the next generation with “Common Core Math.” Are you all so blinded by celebrity and social media, so caught up in consumerism, to pay attention to what this administration is doing? Am I the crazy old man shaking his fist at the world screaming “Get off my lawn.” Or am… Read more »

I’m trying to understand that myself. I’m guessing the majority doesn’t want to deal with it until they lose their homes, their cars, the food they eat. Then maybe..

He’s just trying to win the election for the Dems in 2014 and for the dumb blond Hillary in 2016. And if she wins that election,,,,she’ll be the owner of Obamacare and all the mess. But the Dems don’t care about that….they just care about how much they can play the American people. Or if she should get in then she will make it a “One Payer Insurance” which may have been their plan all along. And after the weak and liar is out of office I’m willing to bet 2017 & 2018 we will see an economical disaster. And… Read more »

I promise you, all of these individuals that are heading up the Government Offices were handpicked. They have the same mind set as the Administration along with their own ideas. Someone above has directed them each step of the way and that is where we need to find the proof. They will never get fired because they are doing what they are told to do. None of them have a soul or conscious, just an Agenda.

Reba,,,I totally agree with you. Right now,,,,nobody will answer for it. We need to fight for change and not give up. November we have to take over the Senate,,,just maybe we finally can make them accountable. This goes all the way to the top. The one thing we do have going for us is we can see they are scared of November. In our state we are now fighting to make a change in our government. Our governor needs to go or he’ll drain this state dry. We have the highest taxes in the nation, our unemployment rate is high,… Read more »

IF we get to a 2016 election

I’m going to stay positive,,,we will take the 2014 and we are going to take the 2016. In order to fight forward,,,we can never give up.

And ALL will be ok.

your mouth to God’s ears. I however remain vigilant and fight the good fight. You are right about one thing and that’s never give up!

I think we will be lucky to see 2014 elections.

I want “The People” to start demanding from their Elected Officials that they want Paper Ballots. Get the electronics out of elections. We are 8 months away and there is time to implement it.

The_Patriot

I live in an area in Massachusetts where it is paper ballot. I have no proof, but if it isn’t rigged I would be very surprised. It is just as easy to fix paper ballots as it is electronics.
In 2008 my paper ballot got stuck in the machine that takes the ballots. Police said don’t worry about it we’ll take care of it.
Yeah right and my name is George Washington

Paper ballots can be ‘lost’.
It’s the integrity of the the people that count the votes that is important.

Reba

That’s why I keep saying, volunteer with your Supervisor of Elections and help them monitor the Poll’s and counting ballots.

I trust them as far as I can throw them and that’s not far. On a side note thanks for your service

Reba

You are in the thick of it. Yes, nothing is 100% safe, but it’s traceable on paper and harder to commit fraud. I would have said, no, I want a new ballot. That’s why I keep asking people to volunteer to help out their Supervisor of Elections.
How’s your weather?

Spring is on it’s way! It’s around the corner. It is still in the teens for temps but the snow falls lighter (no accumulation when it snows) then it disappears fast. It has been known to snow into April here quite often , however it never stays long

We are also still cold and rainy, so tired of it! Sunday we get to Spring Forward, yea!!

I have a few emails from her and Obama soliciting donations for the very same thing. want copies? Doesn’t every American have these? Or only those of us they have on their list?

I don’t know how G. W. Bush being also blamed became a carte blanche for bad behavior. The Liberals seem to think guilt and penalties can be immediately and permanently deleted by using that simple accusation.
How they are getting away with it is a problem that I hope Judge Jeanine on Fox News will handle in the near future. The dear, sweet, lady judge might just puree it, spread it on a frisbee, and toss it into the nearest garbage can.

We all know, Sebeluis, is when you lie you need to remember your lie. Even my children know when you tell the truth you don’t have to remember what you said.

Sounds like “smidgeon” is the new buzzword for the Obama administration – not a smidgeon of anything nasty in the IRS and HHS….from a president who has a “smidgeon” of ethics, truth, responsibility and experience.

The whole Obummer administration must use Xanax to assist in turning off their conscience. They don’t seem to have that little voice in the back of their head that tells them somebody is watching.

It’s easy to get a smidgeon off your shoe…but for Sebelius, she is covered up and over with lies and corruption.

Paul Singh

Well once the whole thing collapses in on itself, Obama will blame Bush and then we can move on.

Supercilious Kathleen Sebelius, who exclaimed to the American people prior to her many 5th amendment pleas – “I don’t work for you!” That says it all, doesn’t it?

Supercilious Kathleen Sebelius, who boasted to the American people – “I don’t work for you!” And that my friend, says it all.
