Arrogance

Ok, I can't let the fact that Kathleen Sebelius won't testify before congress go yet.

I know that Obama is super arrogant.  He just doesn't care, he thinks that all of us are beneath him.  He loves spending our money, hanging out with stars, riding in the jet, fancy vacations.  But, the rest of the president stuff, not so much.  He doesn't like going to security briefings, he isn't crazy about the situation room and he really doesn't like icky stuff like talking to political opponents.  Ewwww!

So, that has kinda rubbed off on his staff.  It's the tone at the top.  The tone at the top currently is, "Hey, guys, let's do whatever we want, run the country into the ground and we don't have to answer to anybody.  Hurry, they may catch on."

Nope, nobody is catching on.  Take all the time you need.

So, Lois Lerner destroyed political opponents using her power at the IRS.  She didn't have to testify before congress, she plead the fifth.  Now, she is retired and collecting her large government pension.

Eric Holder is in contempt of congress, twice, for lying.  He still has his job, still pulling down that huge government salary.

And, now Kathleen Sebelius, the head of health and human services, won't testify before congress.  Congress wants to know why the website is a complete failure, what it will take to fix it, how much it will cost, etc.  These are perfectly reasonable things that any employer should know about an employee.  They are also perfectly reasonable questions.  Congress and the American people deserve the answers.

Imagine if this were the real world.  You know the world where you have to make things and produce things and provide goods and services.  If you don't, you go out of business, that world.  Let's visit that world for a moment.

Imagine an employee was given a huge project.  The project not only went over budget, it is going to cost triple the initial cost estimates.  And, the project doesn't actually do what it is supposed to do.

The person in charge of that project would be FIRED.  Not sent home to keep collecting a fat paycheck.  Not sent home to apply for unemployment and collect 2 fat paychecks and not even sent home to collect a pension.  FIRED.  You leave the building and you don't get anything.

That isn't what is happening.  That arrogance is coming through again.  She refuses to testify before congress.

It makes me think that, possibly, she doesn't care that the website doesn't work.  Shouldn't she be reassuring everybody, working to get to the bottom of it and letting us know that she will fix it?  No.  Does she care that all of those people she is supposed to care about so much STILL don't have health insurance?

The website cost millions and it is going to cost millions more.  Doesn't she care that all of that money from hard working taxpayers was wasted?  Don't the people who paid for it deserve to know what is happening?

Doesn't she want to help all of those people who don't have it, get insurance?

So arrogant.
