Hilarious: Clueless Sebelius Demands Investigation Into Screwed-Up ObamaCare Website

Why, what a novel idea. Let’s spend some money investigating why Obama and Sebelius completely botched the largest government program in history due to their sheer incompetence. While we’re at it, let’s investigate why Obama and Sebelius never once met to go over the details. But now she’s all about accountability or something.

 Recognizing that deeper problems may lurk behind the botched rollout of the health care website, President Barack Obama’s top health official Wednesday called for an investigation into management and contracting decisions.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said in a blog post early Wednesday that she is asking the department’s inspector general to investigate the contracting process, management, performance and payment issues that may have contributed to the flawed launch of HealthCare.gov.

The website was supposed to have been the online portal to coverage under the new health care law, but technical problems turned it into a frustrating bottleneck for millions of consumers. It’s working better now after two months of repairs.

Where is the evidence of that? The administration claiming it’s so?

The announcement comes as Sebelius heads to Capitol Hill for another round of grilling Wednesday before the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Lawmakers want explanations for dozens of questions about the website’s design, workability and security. They also want to know why Sebelius and other top officials repeatedly assured them everything was on track.

A little pre-emptive ass covering here, obviously.

I believe strongly in the need for accountability, and in the importance of being good stewards of taxpayer dollars,” Sebelius said in her announcement. The website has cost taxpayers more than $600 million so far, according to the congressional Government Accountability Office.

These buffoons love to talk about accountability, yet nobody is ever held accountable.

    In other news: Zombie Stalin demands investigation into all those people who disappeared from his official photos. “I remember Yvgeny standing right there beside me! He’s seared, seared into my memory, I tell you.”

    I thought this was already figured out: It was the Republican Congress that screwed up the website.

    Nice stalling tactic. When questioned now all she has to say is, “I cannot answer that, we are still investigating it.”

    Uhhh the final report findings are: “the website failed because government was involved”

    We can’t have that outcome. KS

    Just blame it on a couple of private companies and I’ll give you an unlimited Government P Card. KS

    if they want to know the problem, just hand Obama and Seb a mirror.

    no wait, don’t hand obama a mirror.

    “While we’re at it, let’s investigate why Obama and Sebelius never once met to go over the details.”

    I’m absolutely no fan of either the administration nor Sebelius, but isn’t this particular sentence inaccurate? Wasn’t the story that they had only met, one-on-one, once? Supposedly there were dozens of meetings that had Obama and Sebelius in attendance, but not the one-on-one the story seemed to grow from.

    This is the most inept crew I’ve ever seen at the helm, but let’s not give them or their supporters any unnecessary ammo.

    “I take full responsibility. But its not my fault.”
    -Everyone in this administration, always.

    At last Sec. Sebelius will have the answer to those burning questions, “What did I know and when did I know it?”

  9. SomethingWicked on 11/11/13 at 10:52 am

    If she truly wants accountability then she should resign. She was in charge, it was an undeniable failure, she should take responsibility and do the responsibly thing….she should lose her job

    The meeting was very early on, in March 2010, and Timothy Geithner was also there. So, no, she never had a one-on-one with Obumbles, especially when you would think she would need to have one as the go-live date got nearer.

    Idiots and morons from top down.

    She’d better watch out investigating the contracting procedures. She might uncover a little contract awarding favoritism vis a vis Michelle O’s college roommate and ValJar’s daughter.

    Oooops, KS found today apparently run over by a bus.

    In other news, John Wilkes Booth calls for an investigation into the death of Abraham Lincoln.

    Even if it weren’t her fault directly, how can she not know what went wrong? Wasn’t she there? Didn’t she think it was important? And how can her A/G do the job? Isn’t that what McKinsey is for? Not that this lot couldn’t intimidate them, too.

    You’re correct. Which, when you think about it, actually makes this entire SNAFU worse for both of them, since the “I wasn’t in the loop on the details” excuse is, as the Clintonistas used to say, “no longer operable” for either of them.

    As the Secretary of Health and Human Services, what could possibly have been a higher priority than the roll-out of ObamaCare? Yet she’s claiming she has no idea how it got so screwed up? Here’s a clue Kathy, if you don’t know what the problem is *You’re The Problem*.

    The problems with the website were caused by some lower-level employees in the Cincinnati office and an amateur video which disparaged the Prophet Mohammed.

    I thought we all knew this already?

  19. vrytix on 11/11/13 at 7:35 pm

    But, WH spokesman Jay Carney said Sebelius met often with the President even though their meetings were not announced. He wouldn’t lie – would he?

    As for the website problems, a low-information worker at Home Depot insisted that “they” (Republicans) wouldn’t allow the website to be tested first.

    Oh right, the Republicans, who didn’t vote for the legislation which passed and was implemented somehow managed to prevent any testing?
