Kathleen Sebelius gets embarrassing gift at Memphis event

Web sites for DummiesWhile Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was in Memphis, Tenn., for an education and outreach session about Obamacare on Friday, a state senator presented her with a gift she didn’t seem happy to receive.

Tennessee Sen. Brian Kelsey gave Sebelius a copy of “Web Sites for Dummies,” with a photographer from the local newspaper, The Daily News, snapping a shot of her disapproving expression:

Sebelius says people are unhappy about Obamacare because they have been misinformed, telling the Sun Herald:

“There is no question there is still an extraordinary amount of misinformation. If 55 percent of the people understand a little more about how it affects them and their families, that means that 45 percent of the people still don’t have any idea, and may have believed that there is anything from death panels for Medicare constituents or something will happen to their health benefits or any number of things that continue to be said over and over again.”

Sebelius’ visit Friday was criticized by U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., who has introduced legislation that would require the administration to provide weekly reports on the progress of Obamacare enrollment.

“The secretary is always welcome in Tennessee, but her time would be better spent in Washington fixing the Obamacare website so that millions of Americans won’t find themselves without health insurance starting January 1st,” Alexander said in a news release given to the Herald on Thursday.

    She looks as though she is about to hisss and curl her fingers at someone. But that would be an insult to Wiccan’s.

    All the demoncrats have drank the Kool (fool) aid and let Obama piss in their ear, and now they are Obamatrons. They tell us they are the saviors of the dumb citizens but they are actually doing the devils bidding. I hope to move somewhere far from this country b4 2015. Cuz it won’t be what I’ve enjoyed for the last 65 years! At least not unless the conservatives take back our country and instill honesty, integrity, hard work and Godliness to the nation once again! We don’t want the moochers and the liars on the dole, we want to keep what we’ve work hard for and expect others, if they are healthy, to do the same!
