Sec. Sebelius Fails to Give Confidence

By Jay Sekulow1383167716000

Today’s testimony by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius before a House Committee will not reassure the American people about ObamaCare.

Secretary Sebelius failed to provide any reason why the American people should have confidence in ObamaCare and a website that failed to operate even during her testimony. Unfortunately, what we heard from Secretary Sebelius was nothing new - more excuses for the disastrous rollout and more promises to fix the problems. Today's hearing reinforces what's become standard operating procedure for the Obama Administration when facing a crisis: issue an apology, pledge to do better, and move on.

The American people won't be fooled by this performance. As millions lose health insurance coverage because of ObamaCare and as the deadline approaches for Americans to sign-up for a system that doesn't work or face financial penalties, one thing is clear - Secretary Sebelius and her team are not capable of implementing ObamaCare. An apology without accountability is meaningless.

The hearing did reveal new and important information, raising significant questions about whether the ObamaCare website has been thoroughly subjected to security testing - to ensure that the confidential information provided by Americans is adequately protected.

Americans deserve more than an apology and more promises. They deserve more than a government-mandated program that doesn't work, millions losing coverage, exploding health care costs, and a system that puts the private information of Americans at risk. That is exactly why the individual mandate must be delayed for one year.

At the ACLJ, we represent numerous businesses challenging the HHS mandate in federal court. And, now with Americans facing financial penalties early next year for a product that they can’t obtain, we are exploring a litigation strategy that will seek to protect Americans from unconstitutional penalties imposed by the Obama Administration.

“Pure Applesauce”

By Matthew Clark1456416575920

One of Justice Scalia’s most memorable moments came in a compelling dissent to one of the recent ObamaCare cases.
