Shameless: Sebelius Pimps ObamaCare for MLK Day

I had a dream Team Obama would avoid pimping Obamacare for at least one holiday, but sadly that dream refuses to come true.

Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius took advantage of Martin Luther King Jr. Day to promote ObamaCare’s insurance exchanges, linking insurance coverage to opportunity and equality.

In a statement released Friday as the holiday weekend began, Sebelius referenced King’s 1966 statement that “Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.”

“A child who can’t focus in school because of untreated asthma or a painful cavity is denied the opportunity to learn and realize his or her full potential. A parent who is unable to work because of untreated high blood pressure, diabetes or kidney disease is denied the opportunity to provide for his or her family,” Sebelius said. “Because of the Affordable Care Act, it’s a new day in health care that is bringing new security and opening new doors of opportunity.”

The dream of equality among cancer patients unfortunately has proven elusive. Sadly, under ObamaCare, some people are more equal than others.
