HHS Sec Sebelius says "I don't work for the people who are calling for my resignation." Doesn't she work for WeThePeople? Her statement is:
She just knows she is untouchable like Eric holder. The president will protect her. The administration will protect everyone unless they say something negative or tweet something negative bad about the administration.
I think it would be great for Sebelius to wake up next week and finally realize who she used to work for.
And the president is supposed to work for ...
The people. She is appointed, like judges.
Politico had an interesting article about this (kinda) a few days ago. They made a good point that she won't be asked to resign bc a Senate confirmation for a new HHS Sec would be TERRIBLE for the administration. She's arrogant but will sadly stay.
*This*, among other related issues, is why she'll stay until there is no other choice.
Judges don't work for you even though we pay them, they are appointed. The president is the person who works for us, the people we elect to Congress is the people who work for us.
The well has been poisoned: who wants yet another gridlocking issue in DC. Let's let them TRY to get some f¥€king work done. We are paying them, after all.
She works at the pleasure of the President
So. Why hasn't HE fired her? Because he's been saying, & continues to say, same things she says. For same reasons. If he's as upset as he says he is, there would be a number of ppl putting out resumes.
You and Shelly say the exact same thing. Taking points issued today?
@Late: you clearly are misreading &/or misunderstanding one of us then. Cuz Shelley & I *rarely* say same thing. :-)
Eliana, theavgguy and Shelly both said "the pleasure of the president." Odd coincidence to me.
Well you need to read the link. All people appointed by the President work there at his pleasure. I would have fired her for her 1/2 a billion dollar screw up. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powers_of_the_President_of_the_United_States
Okay, I misapplied your comment to what I've said. Apologies. Yes. I've noticed the recurring comment as well.
Wow someone else said the same thing? I didn't read the prior posts.
Obama doesn't pay her, we do. They waste millions on this crap and it's our money.
Wow that is weird since I have been away all day and haven't watch any news. Chopped is on.
Must have been a headline on huff post. :/
See above for replay.
I don't read huff post so I wouldn't know.
I watch committees on C SPAN, I get it 1st hand.
Lategreat I am a conservative libertarian. What I express are my ideas, and from no one else. I wouldn’t even know were to get talking points from.
Arrogant but consistent with the lies of her master.
Yes an arrogant b***h
obama and his liberal cronies think they are above the American people.
She serves at the pleasure if the President
I believe that is probably what she meant. She is under his prerogative. She will wait for him to ask for her resignation - that's how it works with cabinet members and Presidential advisors
I'm glad you're looking out for her good spin. But she works for the people. She is arrogant the whole administration is arrogant.
That is such BS
And if she had any dignity she would resign.
Take a Poly Sci class or simply watch the West Wing
Therefore, the reason she still has a job is because POTUS hasn't fired her. That's better.
I just watched a video clip of her saying those words, so I'm satisfied that she did say it and that it was not taken out of context. (She said they were people who *wanted* her to fail, but hey, those are American citizens too.)
I think she just sealed her own fate with those words.
If someone wanted you to fail, would you make d sure you didn't. She could have easily said yes, we need a delay.
My correction to her comment would be, "no one wants you to fail because your failure impacts our life in profound & costly ways. But you *have* failed. Furthermore, it isn't only your "enemies" who are calling for your dismissal.
Finally, whether you stay/go, we're left with this steaming pile while we're being summarily dropped from insurance plans &/or facing increased costs & decreased services."
Sounds like a tyrant.
I change my mind, impeach her
There's hope for you yet
What you think I'm a fan of Obamacare?
It's big government, so naturally yes
It may not seem like it to a minarchist like you but I'm actually for small government just not as small as you seek.
Small government is defined differently in Massachusetts.
Please, really, are you asking me that? Come on really!?
Well I'm genuinely interested. I'm speaking about national politics not state politics so I don't see how my views would be correlated to my states politics
How many of your representatives or senators are Republican or Independent?
Name one that breaks from the progressive movement. You may have a couple of small towns that are centered but over all Massachusetts is a progressive state. Sorry.
They are all Democrats but like I said I don't see how my states politics influences my opinion on the national political level.
I never said your view was defined by your state. No more than mine was. I have always pointed to the state as a whole.
What a prick.
p r i c k is censored? Really?
