HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius Won’t Waive Transplant Regulation For 10 Year Old of Sarah Murnaghan With Five Weeks To Live, Says “Someone Lives And Someone Dies”
No Death Panels eh, looks like we already have them … How insensitive and inhumane could one possibly be? Welcome to government, bureaucratic, regulation healthcare murder … Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius refused to get involved and save a 10 year old girl who unless she has a lung transplant will die in 5 weeks. UNREAL. What kind of human being refuses to step in and help a 10 year old child from dying? Why Obama’s Health and Human Secretary of course. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius refuses to get involved to save Sarah Murnaghan … “Someone Lives And Someone Dies …. “ Far be it from the individual in charge of Health and Human services in the United States be concerned of the health of 10 year old Sarah Murnaghan or for that fact, acting human. What is preventing Sarah Murnaghan from getting a lung transplant? Murnaghan, who is suffering from a terminal case of cystic fibrosis, is ineligible for the lung she needs to survive because she is not yet 12 years old, the minimum age to be defined as an adult. Instead, Kathleen Sebelius is more interested in implementing the “train wreck” that is Obamacare, rather than actually helping a child who is dying. It simply took her signature to allow this child to have a chance at living and she refused. Sebelius refuses to make an exception and suspend the rules and review the policy. Sebelius is the face of evil. It is beyond words how this woman would not step in. SICK, JUST SICK.
“I would suggest, sir, that, again, this is an incredibly agonizing situation where someone lives and someone dies,” Sebelius replied.
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius rebuffed an appeal from Rep. Lou Barletta on behalf of a girl who needs a lung transplant but can’t get one because of a federal regulation that prevents her from qualifying for a transplant.
“Please, suspend the rules until we look at this policy,” Barletta, a Pennsylvania Republican, asked Sebelius during a House hearing Tuesday on behalf of Sarah Murnaghan, a 10-year-old girl who needs a lung transplant. She can’t qualify for an adult lung transplant until the age of 12, according to federal regulations, but Sebelius has the authority to waive that rule on her behalf. The pediatric lungs for which she currently qualifies aren’t available.
Weasel Zippers is 100% correct when they say, “Heartless doesn’t even begin to describe Sebelius.” More from Ed Driscol, Remember when PolitiFact named “death panels” the “Lie of the Year”? Turns out they were dead right. After all, Kathleen Sebelius isn’t a panel. Hmm, and I thoutt liberals were supposed to care about people and be so compassionate. Guess Not! Statement from Sarah’s family:
“Secretary Sebelius’ decision to not exercise her very clear authority under the law to intervene and mandate a variance that would help save Sarah’s life is devastating,” they said in a statement. “Essentially, Sarah has been left to die.”
On a personal note, I have been the advocates of children and teens with cystic fibrosis as I have worked with respiratory therapists whose sole purpose was to help families provide care and chest and respiratory therapy to their patients. The battles that I had with health insurance carriers and guilt them into providing care and honor their policies were legendary. I had to actually threaten some carriers with brings families on TV and provide the social shame of denying a child care, let alone a lung transplant like in this case. My heart goes out to this family as I can empathize to exactly what they are going through. I have seen it first hand. It is shameful, simply shameful that this child is being denied, simply because of her age. Take a good look America at what is going on in this country. I am sure we could find a liver for a drunken politician or individual of means, couldn’t we? But some how there is no leadership in Washington, DC. The individual in charge of health in the United States is abdicating her authority and refusing to save an American citizen. It tells me all I need to know about the Obama administration, Obamacare and health care under this president.
IRS Says Cheapest Obamacare Plan Will Be $20,000 Per Family … Two-Thirds of Americans Don’t Know If They Will Insure Under Obamacare
Welcome to the Barack Obama Health “UN”affordability Act of 2010 …
Free health care eh? I guess Nancy Pelosi was correct when she said, ”We Have to Pass Our Bill So That You Can Find Out What Is In It.” From CNS News, now we learn that the cheapest Obamacare plan will cost $20,000 per family. And guess who comes after you and tracks whether you have purchased the mandatory insurance, the IRS, that same organization that has shown all of America that they cannot be trusted.
In the examples, the IRS assumes that families of five who are uninsured would need to pay an average of $20,000 per year to purchase a Bronze plan in 2016.
Using the conditions laid out in the regulations, the IRS calculates that a family earning $120,000 per year that did not buy insurance would need to pay a “penalty” (a word the IRS still uses despite the Supreme Court ruling that it is in fact a “tax”) of $2,400 in 2016.
In a final regulation issued Wednesday, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) assumed that under Obamacare the cheapest health insurance plan available in 2016 for a family will cost $20,000 for the year.
Under Obamacare, Americans will be required to buy health insurance or pay a penalty to the IRS.
The IRS’s assumption that the cheapest plan for a family will cost $20,000 per year is found in examples the IRS gives to help people understand how to calculate the penalty they will need to pay the government if they do not buy a mandated health plan.
The examples point to families of four and families of five, both of which the IRS expects in its assumptions to pay a minimum of $20,000 per year for a bronze plan.
From CNBC News, Two-Thirds of Americans Don’t Know If They Will Insure Under Obamacare
There’s no assurance folks will be buying insurance under Obamacare, and that could spell trouble for the Affordable Care Act.
Nearly two-thirds of Americans who currently lack health insurance don’t know yet if they will purchase that coverage by the Jan. 1 deadline set by the ACA, a new survey revealed Monday.
And less than half of those in the survey released by InsuranceQuotes.com think they’ll get better health care after Obamacare takes full effect. Nearly 50 percent believe the ACA will make it more difficult for them to get tests and procedures done in a timely manner, according to the phone survey of 1,001 adult Americans conducted in early May.
And a whopping 68 percent of low-income Americans aren’t sure they qualify for tax credits that would subsidize their purchase of health insurance—despite they fact that they almost invariably will qualify, the survey found. That population is most likely to benefit from government subsidies under the health-care reform law.
A new Quinnipiac poll shows that the scandals are starting to take an affect on Barack Obama’s job approval rating.
Drip, drip, drip. President Barack Obama is taking a hit in his job approval rating as a result of the multiply scandals that are taking place in his administration in what was supposed to be the most transparent presidency ever. Obama does not face one scandal, not two scandals, but three scandals at the same time. That is correct, Obama is not facing just one Watergate, he is facing Benghazi-gate, IRS-gate and Media-gate. Of which the scandal with the media has a part A and part B with the AP and the Fox News James Rosen scandals. Also, have we forgot Fast & Furious, how’s that Obama scandal going? According to the most recent Quinnipiac Poll, Obama’s approval rating is down to 45% approval, 49% disapproval. That is down from May when he was at 48% approval and 45% disapproval.
American voters say 76 – 17 percent, including 63 – 30 percent among Democrats, that a special prosecutor should be appointed to investigate charges the Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative groups, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today. President Barack Obama gets a negative 45 – 49 percent job approval rating, compared to 48 – 45 percent positive in a May 1 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University, conducted before the IRS allegations surfaced.
The president’s biggest drop is among independent voters, who give him a negative 37 – 57 percent score, compared to a negative 42 – 48 percent May 1. He gets a negative 9 – 86 percent from Republicans and a positive 87 – 8 percent from Democrats, both virtually unchanged. Women approve 49 – 45 percent while men give a negative 40 – 54 percent score. Americans are divided 49 – 47 percent on whether Obama is honest and trustworthy, down from 58 – 37 percent, the last time Quinnipiac University asked the question September 1, 2011.
With all that has happened with this president and the scandals that has further made “We the People” trust our government even less, Democrats still support this president in lock-step. I wonder how they would feel if it were they who were targeted? It is truly sad that they cannot see the bigger picture and just follow Obama blindly and drink the Kool-Aid. However, what should be eye opening to Obama and Democrats is that Independents disapprove of Obama’s job by 20%. The most damning scandal for Americans is the IRS scandal. No one likes the IRS and the fact that a government agency has such power with no oversight to destroy Americans, no matter what their political beliefs and opinions may be, is frightening.
Support for an independent prosecutor to probe the IRS issue is 88 – 6 percent among Republicans and 78 – 17 percent among independent voters, 78 – 17 percent among men and 74 – 18 percent among women.
FOX News latest poll has Obama at 45% approval and 51% disapproval.
Reuters/Ipsos latest poll has Obama at 45% approval and 50% disapproval.
Still to come … the pounding that Barack Obama is going to take on the unpopular Obamacare and the IRS’s roll in establishing and enforcing it as the IRS scandal gets deeper and deeper.
Don’t look now but there is yet another poll with a majority against Obamacare.
A new CNN/ORC International poll shows that 54% of Americans oppose President Barack Obama’s signature domestic policy achievement. This is about the same number of people who opposed the law back when it was first forced down the throats of Americans in 2010 by a partisan Democrat vote. Companies are already reducing workers hours and scaling back the number of workers to meet the exceptions to have to implement Obamacare. Now suddenly Democrats want to delay the medical device tax. What, Democrats want to repeal parts of Obamacare? So they want to repeal a tax within a tax, eh? So how does Obamacare pay for itself? However, the full damaging effects of Obamacare have not even been experienced yet.
According to the poll, 43% of the public says it supports the health care law, a figure that’s mostly unchanged in CNN polling since the measure was passed in 2010 by a Congress then controlled by Democrats and signed into law by President Barack Obama. Fifty-four percent of those questioned say they oppose the law, also relatively unchanged since 2010.
The survey indicates that 35% oppose the health care law because it’s too liberal, with 16% saying they oppose the measure because it isn’t liberal enough.
The wide partisan divide over the law remains. Nearly three quarters of Democrats say they favor the Affordable Care Act. That number drops to 16% among Republicans.
RCP: Tracking the approval/disapproval of Obamacare.
Nancy Pelosi has never been more right in her life and will forever be known for her comment on Obamacare, that “we have to pass it in order to find out what’s in it”. No truer words were ever spoken and this is not for the good. Wake Up America reminds us that things are completely unraveling for Obamacare as Democrats are distancing themselves from Obama’s signature domestic legislation, referring to it as a train wreck. Also, Unions are now souring on Obamacare as well.
With even Democrats that voted for Obamacare attempting to distance themselves from their vote, expressing concerns and publicly making statements calling the implementation a potential “train wreck,” with unions who supported Obama and Obamacare now coming out against it and some calling for repeal, as well as reports showing premiums spiking and a seven foot high stack of Obamacare regulations, not to mention the taxes associated with the mammoth law, there is not much chance the polling numbers are going to improve in the near future.
THIS LAW NEEDS TO BE REPEALED, AND THE SOONER THE BETTER. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HEALTHCARE REFORM.
WTF … Sarah Hall Ingram , IRS Official in Charge of Tax-Exempt Organizations During Tea Party Targeting Now Runs IRS Obamacare Office
Barack Obama has just given the “Lying King” a whole new name … Can “We the People” collectively give one big WTF!!!
Could the news out of Washington, DC and the IRS scandal possible get any worse? President Barack Obama told us the other night, see VIDEO below, that the misconduct at the IRS was inexcusable and Americans had a right to be angry. Obama stated the he was angry. Barack Obama told us that he would not tolerate this type of behavior in any agency, but especially in the IRS. Given the power that it has and the reach that it has in all of our lives. Obama went on to say that the IRS has to operate with absolute integrity. President Obama told “We the People” that we were going to hold the responsible parties accountable. Sorry, I am going to have to call “BULL$IT” on this president. As reported by ABC News, Sarah Hall Ingram, who served as commissioner of the office responsible for tax-exempt organizations between 2009 and 2012, the very time that Tea Party, Conservative and pro-Israel organizations were targeted, is now in charge of … hold it … hold it … IRS’ Affordable Care Act office. That is correct, the very individual who was in charge of the tax-exempt organizations at the very time that the IRS scandal is all about has moved on and now runs the IRS Obamacare office. ARE YOU FRIGGIN KIDDING ME!!! So the good little soldier who willfully and purposely targeted Conservative groups for political purposes and at the very same time fast-tarcked liberal tax-emplt organizations in the run up to the 2012 election was rewarded with the Obamacare IRS gig. As stated at Town Hall, you just can’t make this stuff up. WHY HASN’T THIS WOMAN BEEN FIRED???!!! Didn’t Obama say that those responsible parties shall be held accountable? How the hell much more responsible could one be that the very person who was in charge when the illegal acts took place? Instead, her successor, Joseph Grant, is taking the fall for her misdeeds. The Lonely Conservative has a recap of Obama’s faux-outrage and his lame response of tossing underlings under the bus and faux-firings/resignations of nobodies to such a horrific scandal as the vey individual in charge during the scandal uses it as a spring board for career advancement.
The Internal Revenue Service official in charge of the tax-exempt organizations at the time when the unit targeted tea party groups now runs the IRS office responsible for the health care legislation.
Sarah Hall Ingram served as commissioner of the office responsible for tax-exempt organizations between 2009 and 2012. But Ingram has since left that part of the IRS and is now the director of the IRS’ Affordable Care Act office, the IRS confirmed to ABC News today.
Her successor, Joseph Grant, is taking the fall for misdeeds at the scandal-plagued unit between 2010 and 2012. During at least part of that time, Grant served as deputy commissioner of the tax-exempt unit.
Grant announced today that he would retire June 3, despite being appointed as commissioner of the tax-exempt office May 8, a week ago.
As the House voted to fully repeal the Affordable Care Act Thursday evening, House Speaker John Boehner expressed “serious concerns” that the IRS is empowered as the law’s chief enforcer.
How is it possible that Barack Obama does not ask for this woman’s resignation? How can a person who headed the department that targeted Conservatives and the Tea Party be allowed to run the IRS Obamacare office? Fantastic, let’s have this same woman targeting Conservatives on their insurance and healthcare. Instead of being reprimanded or fired for her actions … IRS tax exemption/Obamacare exec got $103,390 in bonuses. They knew what she was doing and she was rewarded for her actions against Conservatives. Then given such a seal of approval, she was made head of the Obamacare implementation department. UNREAL!!! Under Sarah Hall Ingram, the IRS was asking for Conservative organizations donors, emails, postings and anyone involved with the non-profits. Now match that up with your healthcare records. Every American should not only be outraged, you should be afraid.
The IRS not only needs to be stripped of its power as an enforcer within Obamacare … We really need to take a good look once and for all to defund the IRS and abolish it.

IRS Admits Trageting Conservatives for Extra Tax Scrutiny in 2012 Election … Claimed there was No Political Bias Behind the Alinsky Targeting Tactics
ADD ANOTHER SCANDAL TO THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION … MORE CHICAGO STYLE, SAUL ALINSKY POLITICS … WHEN IS AMERICA GOING TO ADMIT THAT OBAMA IS NIXONESQUE?
The IRS apologizes for targeting Conservatives and Tea Party groups … apology not accepted! Should this be considered a “hate crime”? The IRS was obviously only targeting a certain element of society. Of course the IRS did not target Conservative groups to retaliate against Obama enemies list. That could never happen.
What a shock that the Obama IRS would act as his henchman to go after Conservatives and Tea Party groups. All the IRS has to offer is an apology? This is simply unacceptable and all involved need to be fired, without pensions immediately! As reported at the WAPO, IRS officials claimed that there was no political bias behind the targeting of these conservative groups, but they failed to produce any examples of similar targeting of groups with non-conservative-sounding names. MY BUTT!!! What a joke this is, of course it was politically motivated. It was just a coincidence that it was only Conservative Tea Party orgs that were targeted. If you believe that I have a bridge to sell you. Talk about abuse of power. This admissions from the IRS is exactly what Conservatives have been accusing them of years and now “We the People” know its true. How can anyone have faith in this “Gestapo” organization ever again?
1. IRS officials claimed that there was no political bias behind the targeting of these conservative groups, but they failed to produce any examples of similar targeting of groups with non-conservative-sounding names. Initially, they suggested that other non-conservative-sounding names might have been targeted. By the end of the call, though, Lerner acknowledged: “I only said that because I never like to say ‘absolutely not.’ I don’t have any information on that.”
2. Lerner wouldn’t say whether anyone is being disciplined, then appeared to say there was no disciplinary action, then went back to saying she wouldn’t comment. (more)
This is the tip of the iceberg and follows the “cockroach” principle … this is what they have admitted to, what else are they guilty of like who they audit, hmm? Obviously, the Obama administration used Alinsky tactics & IRS to ensure Tea Party would not be a factor in 2012.
The Internal Revenue Service on Friday apologized for targeting groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names, confirming long-standing accusations by some conservatives that their applications for tax-exempt status were being improperly delayed and scrutinized.
Lois G. Lerner, the IRS official who oversees tax-exempt groups, said the “absolutely inappropriate” actions by “front-line people” were not driven by partisan motives.
Rather, Lerner said, they were a misguided effort to come up with an efficient means of dealing with a flood of applications from organizations seeking tax-exempt status between 2010 and 2012.
During that period, about 75 groups were selected for extra inquiry — including burdensome questionnaires and, in some cases, improper requests for the names of their donors — simply because of the words in their names, she said in a conference call with reporters.
The Gateway Pundit reminds us of the when in 2012, conservative groups complained that the IRS was targeting them for audits. IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman told Congress that the IRS was not targeting groups based on their political views.
UPDATE I: From the Committee on Oversight & Government Reform: Issa and Jordan: IRS Political Retaliation Tactics “Unconscionable”.
As Weasel Zippers stated, “heads should roll”. As we stated above, there is not one person who should be spared … ALL SHOULD GO, WITHOUT PENSIONS AND CRIMINAL CHARGES SHOULD BE MADE.
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and Subcommittee Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio., requested the IG look into allegations of political retaliation last June. In response to the today’s disclosure and apology by IRS, Issa and Jordan issued the following statement: “The fact that Americans were targeted by the IRS because of their political beliefs is unconscionable. The Committee will aggressively follow up on the IG report and hold responsible officials accountable for this political retaliation.”
UPDATE II: A Public Service Announcement to the American People via Legal Insurrection … As IRS admits it targeted Tea Party groups, remember IRS is Obamacare enforcer.
UPDATE II: From The Weekly Standard - The Times & the IRS Story … It’s not front page news, apparently. Think the same would hold true under a GOP presidency?
Not front page material in the Grey Lady’s news judgment. But good enough for page A-11. With the third paragraph reassuring readers that an agency spokesperson had insisted
… that the move was not driven by politics, but she added, “We made some mistakes; some people didn’t use good judgment.”
But of course. One does wonder, though, how the Times would have played the news if, a few years back, it had come to light that the IRS had been auditing Valerie Plame.
But … then, perhaps in the Times’s lofty judgment, the IRS was merely doing what it should do. This, anyway, was how the Times editorial page saw it last year:

HYPOCRITS!!! Washington Lawmakers May Get Obamacare Exemption … UNREAL, These People Inflict it Upon Us and Want Different Rules for Themselves
Every wonder why politician now have low ratings than used car salesmen and pond scum … Obamacare for Thee, not for me.
The Politico is reporting that hypocrite Congressional leaders are meeting to change the Obamacare rules for them and their staff and aids as compared to the nightmare healthcare program they have inflicted upon “We the People”. As reported, “The problem stems from whether members and aides set to enter the exchanges would have their health insurance premiums subsidized by their employer, in this case, the federal government. If not, aides and lawmakers in both parties fear that staffers, especially low-paid junior aides, could be hit with thousands of dollars in new health care costs, prompting them to seek jobs elsewhere.” CRY ME A RIVER!!! What a joke, we are supposed to suffer under this provisions of this ridiculous and unpopular piece of legislation, yet Congress looks to get an exemption from the very crap they passed!
Congressional leaders in both parties are engaged in high-level, confidential talks about exempting lawmakers and Capitol Hill aides from the insurance exchanges they are mandated to join as part of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, sources in both parties said.
The talks — which involve Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), the Obama administration and other top lawmakers — are extraordinarily sensitive, with both sides acutely aware of the potential for political fallout from giving carve-outs from the hugely controversial law to 535 lawmakers and thousands of their aides. Discussions have stretched out for months, sources said.
Another one bites the dust at the hands of Obamacare … Another opening for the GOP in 2014. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, the Democrat Senator from Montana announced that he will not run for reelection in 2014 and instead retire. According to the Washington Post, rather than face a tough election, Baucus would rather retire. The six term Senator obviously sees the handwriting on the wall. Obamacare is still unpopular and going to get worse as America wakes up and realizes the expensive boongoogle that it is. Baucus was a key player and played a critical role in writing President Obama’s national health-care plan, Obamacare. However, last week Baucus referred to the Obamacare as a train wreck. Think the conservative state of Montana was not going to hold that against him in 2014? Also, just last week he also voted the expand back ground checks on the purchase of guns. Don’t worry Max, not like Montana is one of the states with the highest gun ownership at 57.7%. Oh wait, it is.
Baucus, 71, first elected in 1978,has been the top Democrat on the powerful committee since 2001. At times infuriating his Democratic colleagues, Baucus worked with Republicans to co-write the Bush-era tax cuts and the Medicare prescription drug plan, but he also served as the lead defender against George W. Bush’s 2005 effort to partially privatize Social Security and played a critical role in writing President Obama’s national health-care plan. Baucus, from conservative-leaning Montana, has voted against Democratic initiatives on some social issues, most recently last week’s effort to create an expanded background check system for gun purchases. Republicans have been trying to land a top recruit to challenge Baucus, who despite his unpolished public image has been one of the savviest political operators among Mountain West Democrats.
As Weasel Zippers stated, it was obvious that Baucus’s polling showed that because of his liberal ways, he was going to get crushed. According to PPP polling, Baucus was already running 5 points behind hypothetical Republican candidates, although he may never have made it out of the Democrat primary. This does not bode well for Democrats in the Senate. If the GOP could actually get their collective heads out of their RINO, establishment butts, they should take this seat. According to Charlie Cook this moves the seat into the toss-up category. Democrats, so far, have to defend 21 seats, while Republicans have to defend 14. The GOP needs a net gain of 6 seats to regain the Senate. Although, Wake Up America opines that out of the 21 Democratically held seats, seven of them are in states carried by the former Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, while just one of the Republican seats is in a state won by President Obama. Are they just getting old or has the Obama bloom truly come off the rose? Baucus joins five other committee chairmen who have decided to retire rather than run for reelection, including Sens. John D. “Jay” Rockefeller (D-W.Va.), 75, chairman of the commerce committee, and Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), 73, chairman of the health committee. In the 2010 and 2012 election seasons, several other chairmen, including Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) and Kent Conrad (D-N.D.), opted to retire.
Paul Ryan: GOP Budget Blueprint Includes Repeal of Obamacare (Obamatax Job Killing, Budget Increasing) Disaster
This weekend on FOX News Sunday, Rep. Paul Ryan (WI-R) stated that the budget blueprint he plans to unveil on Tuesday will promote repealing Obamacare. Let’s hope that both Ryan and the GOP are sincere and have a spin and the conviction to go through with this. As we continue to learn every day, Obamacare will bankrupt the United States and destroy jobs. We need healthcare reform in the US, Obamacare is not it. Obamacare is not providing any of its promises, in fact it is doing just the opposite.
Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, chairman of the House Budget Committee, said Sunday that his new budget includes the repeal of President Obama’s health-care reform law known as ObamaCare.
Ryan told “Fox News Sunday” that the new proposal will make enough cuts to balance the federal budget in 10 years, compared to his previous one that tried to achieve that goal in 25 years.
“We think we owe the American people a balanced budget,” the Republican congressman said.
Ryan said the focus of the ObamaCare repeal would be to stop the expansion of Medicaid, the federal program that provides medical services to low-income U.S. families.
“Our budget does promote repealing ObamaCare and replacing it with a better system,” said Ryan, who did not say whether his 2014 budget is based on a full repeal.
