Speaking of shenanigans… Healthcare!

Courtesy of A Conservative Shemale, we find this gem:

The economic report released last week by Health and Human Services, which indicated that President Barack Obama’s health care “reform” law would actually increase the cost of health care and impose higher costs on consumers, had been submitted to the office of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius more than a week before the Congressional votes on the bill, according to career HHS sources, who added that Sebelius’s staff refused to review the document before the vote was taken.

“The reason we were given was that they did not want to influence the vote,” says an HHS source. “Which is actually the point of having a review like this, you would think.”

[emphasis mine]

The “HHS source” is exactly right. The entire point of reviews like that are to give legislators the information they need to make an informed decision (assuming they bother to actually read the bill in the first place, but that’s a whole ‘nother topic). To withhold it from Congress when it presents new information was a deliberate attempt to influence the vote, no matter what she says. This should be grounds for Congress and Obama to demand her immediate resignation.
