Major news outlets in recent days have reported that U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is raising money from the private sector—including from health-care executives—for use by a private entity that is helping to implement ObamaCare. The entity, Enroll America, is run by a former White House aide.
The Washington Post quoted an HHS spokesman last week saying, “We requested additional money [from Congress] . . . but we didn’t receive any additional funding for the exchanges. So we had to come up with Plan B.”
My immediate thought was: Isn’t “Plan B” what got Oliver North in trouble during the 1980s?
PS: Lama… Senator Alexander is correct, by the way.
*That’s some Old School snark there, ya, you betcha. So Old School that I don’t even remember what it was originally about. Suffice it to say that pretty much every person I know who has been doing this for a… geez, a decade now… more or less automatically will go “Lamar!” when prompted.
