Catron: Kathleen the Terrible

David Catron's latest piece for American Spectator discusses the arrogance and corruption of HHS secretary Sebelius.

From his piece, "Kathleen the Terrible":
Even as her Hatch Act violation came to light, she launched a program that illegally postponed Obamacare’s cuts to Medicare Advantage until after the recent election. And it hardly needs to be said that her behavior since November 6 contains no hint of moderation. Since then, Sebelius has put in place a legally dubious pay-to-play program for selecting which health carriers can ply their wares in Obamacare’s insurance exchanges, and it has been discovered that a crucial contract involving the exchanges was awarded to a company that employs a former Sebelius underling who ran the very agency that awarded the contract.
Such cronyism is a predictable result of the ObamaCare law, which gives the Secretary enormous "discretion" in implementing the law.
