November 6, 2013 HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius testified in front of the Senate Finance Committee. Below is a portion of an article from dallasnews(online).
With many people unable to obtain coverage through the website, lawmakers in both parties have suggested extending the open enrollment period or delaying the financial penalties for people who go without insurance. Sebelius refused to consider those proposals.
“Delaying the Affordable Care Act would not delay people’s cancer or diabetes or Parkinson’s disease,” she said. “It would not delay the need for mental health services or cholesterol screenings or prenatal care.”
“For millions of Americans, delay is not an option,” Sebelius said. “People’s lives depend on this.”
I am sick and tired of the emotionalism and hyperbole coming from Washington D.C. about ‘healthcare.’
I am appalled and angry that this type of tactic is the norm for this administration.
I have a real piece of news for you Resident, Ms. Sebelius and all democrats out there — PEOPLE’S LIVES DEPEND ON OBAMACARE BEING DUMPED. But you don’t care about us, do you? And you really don’t care about those whom you claim to champion, do you?
NO … you ONLY CARE about taking control and crippling the private insurance industry such that the national government has the most control over the greatest number of citizens as possible. Guess what that’s called? You won’t testify to that will you? And you won’t even utter the word, will you? And you exempt yourselves from this legislation from hell itself, don’t you?
I won’t fall for your attempt to put a guilt trip on me for not caring about my fellow citizens who don’t have insurance. You know bloody well there are other ways to solve these types of issues. Again, YOU DON’T CARE about anyone’s health and well-being. This is all a gigantic ruse to put the final blow to this Republic. But you won’t admit that will you?
Your words and proclamations of compassion ring hollow. Pushing forward with this horrid law PROVES you don’t give diddly squat about anyone or anything but your own dastardly agenda PERIOD
I will stop now. Your turn.
