Not as easy as it looked.

From the Topeka Capital-Journal:

Republicans put the brakes Thursday on Senate confirmation of Gov. Kathleen Sebelius as secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s objections could push to next week a vote by the full Senate on President Barack Obama’s choice for HHS. The Kentucky Republican said senators needed more time to consider her “fairly contentious” selection.

The action by GOP senators will require Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., to invoke Senate procedures requiring 60 votes to break the filibuster. Democrats say they have the necessary votes to force a final vote and confirm Sebelius. Roberts and fellow Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback, also a Republican, endorsed Sebelius’ nomination for the Cabinet post at HHS. Both have been under pressure from anti-abortion organizations to drop their support for the governor.

Oh, the comments! (this is the fun part)

“The flip side is if they defeat her she stays in Kansas. What a choice.”

“We have already started a fund to help her move…”

“You got what you wanted, an abortion loving Christian bashing tax and spend president who hates the rich and never met a tinhorn dictator he didn’t want to bow down to. You should be happy. It’s our turn to be the outraged displaced disenfranchised political minority.”

“Thank heavens! Why in the world would anyone want a woman who clearly has an ABORTION agenda and cannot tell the truth about who contributes to her war chest in charge of anything anyway! Oh right – I forgot – those are required traits if you are an Obama dem! That and “forgetting” to pay your taxes!!”

“Just because she has been around, like a bad rash, does not make her a sensible choice to head HHS.”

“How is it when you are a Christan and have an opinion, it’s shoving “religion” down everyone’s throats? Even if you never bring God up-oh-and you must automatically be a Republican, and bomb abortion clinics on the weekends?”

The people of Kansas have spoken.

This is kind of a lynching to get her out of Kansas and down our throats. Nice….real nice. She’s not out of Kansas yet! Click your heels three times and say….’There’s no place like home…there’s no place like home…”

Just watch out for the house…it’s about to fall ya…

Aren’t we the stand-up gal.

This bit of ‘measure’ for late-term abortion means nothing.

Topeka, Kansas– A spokeswoman for Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius says she is still reviewing a bill dealing with late-term abortions. Sebelius has until Thursday to deal with the measure. She has a strong record of supporting abortion rights.

The measure is described by anti-abortion members as an attempt to strengthen enforcement of existing restrictions on late-term procedures. Critics say the bill is really an attempt to restrict access to abortion. Sebelius spokeswoman Beth Martino said the governor is reviewing the bill thoroughly.

The bill imposes more detailed reporting requirements on doctors who perform late-term abortions. Also, if a woman or girl came to believe her late-term abortion was illegal, then she, her husband or parents could sue the doctor for damages.

Of course I have two cents….

This pathetic bill means NOTHING to the lives of babies that hang in the balance in the state of Kansas and/or regarding late-term abortion and the ‘doctor’ that performs them. All that it will do is protect the ‘doctor’. Nice job protecting your friend Dr. Tiller.


Then there’s the Obama ‘Death-Machine’…

From  Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius won a divided Senate panel’s approval Tuesday to be confirmed as secretary of health and human services in the Obama administration.

The Finance Committee voted 15 to 8 to send the Sebelius nomination to the full Senate for a final vote.

The committee vote came after several Republicans voiced concerns about Sebelius’ ties to a late-term abortion doctor in her home state. The GOP also questioned her commitment to ensuring that the government doesn’t try to interfere with the doctor-patient relationship.

Too bad…that’s just too bad.  Now I know she’s not nominated YET, however this proves what a dangerous administration we have….this is just the tip of the iceberg.

You really can’t fix stupid.

Stupider? YEP.

From Washington:  A Senate committee has scheduled a vote for Tuesday on President Barack Obama’s nominee for health and human services secretary, Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius….The Senate Finance Committee will vote on sending Sebelius’ nomination to the full Senate. She’s expected to win confirmation despite concerns raised by anti-abortion activists in recent days over campaign money she got from a Kansas abortion doctor.

Lawmakers want Sebelius in place quickly as they get to work on legislation overhauling the nation’s costly health care system….Sebelius is Obama’s second choice for health secretary after former Senate Democratic leader Tom Daschle withdrew in a tax controversy.

Well then. Apparently the cost of human lives really does mean nothing to the Government.

Obama, Pelosi & Biden

Oklahoma is OK; Sebelius won’t go away.

This is an interesting turn on injury or death to the unborn…read on from

‘Oklahoma state lawmakers passed the Use of Force for the Protection of the Unborn Act this week and if the Senate approves it in a final vote, as expected, it will be sent to the governor’s desk. This bill allows pregnant women to use deadly force to protect their unborn children.’

The article goes on to say – ‘Pregnant women who refuse to abort their child are too often attacked by their partner in an effort to force a miscarriage,” said state Rep. Mike Thompson, who co-authored the bill after Americans United for Life asked him. “Women put in this position should have the legal right to defend themselves, with lethal force if necessary.”

The bill came about after a Michigan woman who was carrying quads stabbed and killed her boyfriend after he hit her in the stomach. The woman lost the babies and was convicted of manslaughter.

“Unfortunately, the unborn child is often the primary target of domestic violence,” State Senator Glenn Coffee said in a statement. “Domestic violence has been acknowledged as a primary cause of stillbirths and miscarriages.”

And then there’s Kathleen Sebelius…again.

From the AP:  Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius stepped around potential land mines on abortion and her own tax errors Thursday as she testified at a hearing en route to her expected confirmation as health and human services secretary….Sebelius was not asked any questions about abortion, an issue that’s caused loud complaints from conservative groups angered about her vetoes of some abortion restrictions and the presence of a prominent abortion doctor, Dr. Tiller, at a reception at the governor’s residence.

kathleen-sebeliusNor was Sebelius asked about what she has called “unintentional errors” related to charitable deductions, mortgage interest and business expenses on her most recent tax returns. She has paid nearly $8,000 in taxes and penalties.

Sebelius had the backing of both of Kansas’ Republican senators, Pat Roberts and Sam Brownback – the latter a strong anti-abortion figure – and no senator raised abortion on Thursday or during a hearing Tuesday before the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.

How can any republican back an extreme EMILY’s List Democrat? Can you say ‘personal gain’?

And the winner for HHS Secretary is…

…a democrat that actually paid their taxes!

Is there a Democrat, in these United States, that actually pays the taxes they owe? On time? Anyone? Anyone?

Regardless that Mr. & Mrs. Sebelius knew that they would be found out trying to take deductions that they knew were incorrect. Such as:

  • Charitable contributions over $250 are supposed to include an acknowledgment letter from the charity in order for a deduction to be taken. Out of 49 charitable contributions made, three letters couldn’t be found.
  • Sebelius and her husband sold their home in 2006 and then took a mistaken deduction for mortgage interest.
  • Insufficient documentation was found for some business expense deductions.

I am not a rocket scientist…but I do know how to hire an accountant to prepare taxes. So, what genius prepared their taxes in the first place? Apparently they knew they were in hot water or they would not have hired someone to check on the last three years returns:   ‘In her letter to Baucus and the top Finance Committee Republican, Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, Sebelius wrote that the errors were discovered after she and her husband, Gary, a federal magistrate judge in Kansas, hired an accountant to review her returns in preparation for her confirmation hearing.’  Read the article here.

People that want to run our country can’t run their own home or take care of their own finances.

My head hurts.
