Congress readies hot seat for Sebelius

They want her fired and the health care reforms she champions dismantled, and now Republicans will finally get their chance to question Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

She will appear before a House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing on Wednesday called to examine the rocky rollout of the Obamacare website.

In an advance copy of her testimony, Sebelius says it's frustrating and unacceptable that the site has not lived up to its expectations.

However, she said Obamacare has delivered on its central promise to provide affordable healthcare.

    Congress redies hotseat for Sebelius? Or Just warming the bed. This federal project is costing the nation 30% of our GDP....it better be good. You know already how I feel about something that will cave in on itself.

      Source? All other figures have been 1/6th of our GDP. Far lower than 30%. The GOP needs to come up with a replacement that they promised. I'm open to ideas; obviously the Heritage plan isn't feasible anymore since Obama passed it.

    obamacare is a bailout, ponzi scheme where legislators will make off with millions as "silent partners" in the healthcare industry...national security need to investigate purchases and stock in nusing homes, home health, clinics, hospitals, pharmacies...major conflict of interest...wonder how many govenors gonna personally profit...putting a sebelius face onnit was a dead givaway!

    Well of course it is @ Rascal! I didnt think of that name for it but yep for all intents and purposes, ponzi scheme is pretty accurate! And as soon as congress added 161 amendments to benefit themselves and their special interest groups, which you listed several, thats what it became! But....when the POTUS first presented it, the purpose was meant to regulate insurance companies, big Pharma and corporate medical! And to make healthcare AFFORDABLE! But im not understanding the reference you made about the "face of Sebelius" on it?
