FRC Action Asks President Obama to Stop Treating Taxpayers Like Fools

/PRNewswire/ -- Last night it was reported that President Obama's nominee to be the next Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius, had failed to pay back taxes. She now joins a growing list of current and failed Administration nominees who think they are above the law.

Tom McClusky, Senior Vice President of Family Research Council Action, had this to say:

"It is ironic that today is April Fool's Day, for the Obama Administration seems to think that American taxpayers can be so easily duped. By failing to pay her taxes, Kathleen Sebelius joins Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, House Ways and Means Chairman Charlie Rangel and others in the Democratic leadership who appear to think they are above the very laws they create and are supposed to protect.

"As the House and Senate continue to debate President Obama's budget, which seeks to raise taxes on all Americans to the tune of $700 for every household in the U.S., they should perhaps start reading and obeying the laws they already have passed.

"Kathleen Sebelius's fealty toward abortion-on-demand and government run health care clearly shows she is unfit to have control of the American health care system. If she refuses to do the honorable thing as former nominee Tom Daschle did, and remove her name from consideration, the U.S. Senate needs to reject her nomination and stop treating the American people as fools."
