Sebelius Blows Off Congress To Hang At Call Center And CNN

Kathleen Sebelius apparently shares the same above-accountability attitude as every other failure or scandalous administration member has, including President Obama. In the midst of both failure and scandal, the Health and Human Services Secretary has time to travel and chat with CNN, but does not time to testify to Congress.

HHS Sec. Kathleen Sebelius has plans to travel to Phoenix, Arizona, on Thursday to take a tour of an ObamaCare call center. That would be a fitting duty — arguably one that should have been carried out before the failure — but she plans to do so just after telling Republicans in Congress she was unable to testify that very same day.

An Obama administration official confirmed that Sec. Sebelius plans to visit the call center and meet with community leaders on outreach to those currently uninsured. As People’s Pundit Daily previously reported, the political arm of the Obama administration — Organizing for America — is currently fundraising and doing the very same outreach as Kathleen Sebelius. In order to compensate — or, pick up the slack for the failure of HealthCare.gov. — the administration obviously plans to beat the concrete to enroll as many people as possible before the insurance death spiral begins.

The Department of Health and Human Services had previously claimed that she was unable to make a Thursday hearing on the failed ObamaCare rollout before the House Energy and Commerce Committee due to a “scheduling conflict.”

And, of course, the department did not specify what that conflict was.

Kathleen Sebelius had already been taking heat for bucking the House committee, while at the same time planning to attend a health care gala in Boston on Wednesday night. She also found time to sit down with friendly liberal-leaning network CNN, who gave a cushy interview.

It’s unclear whether Sebelius’ “scheduling conflict” was the gala, the Phoenix event, a future cushy interview with another liberal news outfit, or neither.

The House Energy and Commerce Committee says Sebelius is now expected to testify next Wednesday on the health care law. We shall see next week, though the American people should not have to wait when so much money, waste, and a failure of epic proportions is on the line.
