Sebelius refuses to testify before congress about Obamacare disaster?

The shit being pulled by the Obozo crew just gets funnier--that is to say, crazier and more outrageous--with each passing day.

Really, I'm laughing so hard I can barely see to type.

The House Energy and Commerce Committee has announced that it'll hold a hearing this Thursday to examine the...shall we say "interesting"...rollout of Obamacare on October 1st.  This is not the crazy part, inasmuch as one of the most crucial functions of congress is government oversight.

As one would absolutely expect, the committee sent a letter to Obozo's secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, asking her to appear and answer questions.  And no, this isn't the crazy or funny part either.

One of the things the committee planned to ask was how many people have actually, literally, signed up for Obamacare as of today.  That's the number of Americans who *actually signed up* for a plan, not the number who visited the site and tried to navigate the thing for a few hours before giving up in frustration.

As you might guess, revealing that top-secret number would probably have been a huge embarrassment to the Obozo crew, as they have doggedly refused to divulge that number to anyone outside the Chosen Circle.

Ooooohh, what to do, what to do?

You'll never guess what happened.

Obie's department head told the committee to go pound sand.

That's the spirit, Obie!  "This will be the 'most transparent administration evah!'"  Provided one defines "transparency" as "refusing to answer questions or explain your actions."  Good show, Barry!

And I'm just kidding about that being a hard decision for Barry's crew.  After all, they pulled the same bullshit with your lying, lawbreaking attorney-general:  After he said he had NOT briefed Obie on the operation that was selling guns to Mexican drug gangs (Fast and Furious), the House asked Holder to appear and testify about the op.  At which point Holder made an instantaneous, breathtaking pivot and asked Obie to shield him from having to testify--by invoking "executive privilege"--a legal theory similar to the "attorney-client privilege."

But as he'd just gotten through saying he'd never briefed Obama on the op, it would seem kinda impossible to claim executive privilege, eh?

In my humble opinion this kind of in-your-face bullshit should be a capital crime.  For those of you younger than 35 or so that means one that has execution as a penalty if guilty.  But when congress did nothing at all--probably in fear of being called raaacists--Obie knew he could make 'em back down every time.  

Now, there's still a chance Obama may reverse himself and allow Sebelius to appear before the committee--but only after making the committee agree that they won't ask her certain questions, and agreeing that she can't be given immunity (a tactic used to get witnesses to testify more honestly).

Oh, and if you think Sebelius herself made the decision not to testify, you're so dumb you probably vote Democrat.
