Congressman Huelskamp Challenges Secretary Sebelius to sign up for ObamaCare

Press Release

WASHINGTON – Just one day before Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius testifies before the House Energy and Commerce Committee, Representative Tim Huelskamp (KS-01) issued the following statement:

“Secretary Sebelius’ testimony tomorrow is and should be beyond just the failed ObamaCare website. The bigger picture is the arrogance of the Obama Administration and other liberals in Washington who think they can successfully manage this massive government expansion opposed by a majority of Americans. The website is just a symptom of that problem. Secretary Sebelius likely will, just like her boss President Obama, blame everyone else for her own lack of leadership and direction. We saw this in Kansas during her tenures as Insurance Commissioner and as Governor.

"My biggest question for her is, if ObamaCare is so great then why won’t she get rid of her gold-plated, Cadillac insurance plan and sign up for it? I issue that direct challenge to her.  Kansans, indeed nearly all Americans, get this – if it’s not good enough for Washington, why should they have to live under ObamaCare?  It is so typical for government insiders – one set of rules for them, another set of rules for the rest of us.”
