RON HART: Obama's late in term abortion

Published: Monday, April 21, 2014 at 08:33 AM.

Chattanooga , TN — Outgoing HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius hopes ObamaCare covers injuries sustained from being shoved out a door.

After magically manufacturing her own low-ball projections of 7 million-plus signups for ObamaCare, she high fives herself, then exits stage far left.

She leaves the smoldering ruins of a poorly thought out commandeering of one seventh of our economy by a bumbling group of ineffective ideologues.

The media coverage was what you would imagine. CBS called her "heroic." Fox asked for details and accountability. MSNBC called Fox "racist and sexist" for wanting details. CNN built a paper airplane, tossed it around the studio, and interviewed experts on Sebelius’ projected flight pattern back to Kansas .

The fact that most mainstream media applauded her tenure expected. It’s like Cat Fancy Magazine declaring kittens cuter than puppies. Nancy Pelosi called Sebelius “effective.” By government standards, she probably was.

Sebelius was a dutiful liberal foot soldier for Obama. When the website rollout proved to be a debacle, she supported Obama’s story that he knew nothing about it. Our president was too busy knowing nothing about the IRS targeting his political opponents, NSA spying on us, and Benghazi .

As a reminder of how ObamaCare came about, Democrats crafted this disastrous bill in 2009 when they owned both houses of Congress and the White House. The bill was so bad that they even had to pay off members of their own party to vote for it. Remember the “Cornhusker Kickback” and the " Louisiana Purchase ?”
