Does any member in the Obama administration think they owe an explanation of anything to anyone?
This time it is the thoroughly incompetent Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) Kathleen Sebelius. It seems that she is pulling a “lois lerner” and refusing to testify before a congressional committee – a senate committee, which is chaired by a Democrat.
Excerpted from Caroline May\’s article at dailycaller.com:
OutgoingHealth and Human Services Sec. Kathleen Sebelius is now refusing totestify before the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor,Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies, a Senateaide told The Daily Caller Tuesday.
Sebeliushad originally been set to testify before the subcommittee about thedepartment\’s 2015 $70 billion budget request on April 2.
Accordingto another aide, however, several weeks after confirming the hearingdate, she requested a date switchwith the National Institutes of Health budget hearing on May 7. Thecommittee accommodated her request.
Now,after announcing her resignation on April 11, she is refusing totestify according to the two aides, even though she is still thesitting secretary – remaining at the post until her successor, OMBDirector Sylvia Mathews Burwell is confirmed.
“Itappears that Sec. Sebelius has unilaterally decided that she is nolonger accountable to Congress,” the first aide said.
Theother aide explained that HHS has not given the committee any reasonfor her refusal and that Sebelius has not suggested anyone to testifyin her place.
Who does Kathleen Sebelius think she is? Why does she think she is above explaining her actions to congress and the public? What is she afraid of? That we will find out she is even more incompetent, more inept, more dishonest than we already know she is?
And when do mainstream media start demanding accountability from her, and the rest of this administration?
They sure as hell demanded it from the previous one.
