But what if Sebelius were employed in the private sector and not government?
Would she have been fired by now?
Our camera caught up with the secretary of Health and Human Services to ask her just that.
Sebelius, however, wasn’t too keen on answering the question, as you’ll see above. And it’s of little surprise why. In the private sector — where profit, loss, efficiency, deadlines, and benchmarks actually mean something — Sebelius wouldn’t stand a chance. Heck, it was just two weeks ago that she told Congress the individual mandate to purchase health insurance and the open enrollment period wouldn’t be delayed. And then days before the March 31 deadline, Sebelius’s department delayed both by another two weeks at least — the 17th Obamacare delay in last year alone — and inexplicably claimed that it wasn’t, in fact, an extension, but was like keeping the polls open on Election Day.
Such word games aren’t recommended in the employment world outside of Washington, D.C.
But Sebelius’s “boss” is Barack Obama, and how many people off the top of your head can you name that he’s held accountable?
We also asked Sebelius if she’d resign if the White House fails to hit the enrollment target for Obamacare.
Recall that the original goal was seven million people. As we moved closer to the March 31, that number was revised downward to six million. And now, with the latest delay, the White House is giving itself even more time to hit the mark.
