LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Relieve Sebelius of HHS post

- - Sunday, November 10, 2013

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has been under withering fire for the debacle with the Obamacare website and the crisis wherein hundreds of thousands of Americans have had their private health insurance policies canceled because of HHS regulations for Obamacare. Many are calling for Mrs. Sebelius' resignation for the crisis her incompetence has created and the damage the fiasco has done to the affected Americans. Yet President Obama has yet to show any inclination to fire her.

In the fall of 1968, one of the companies in my infantry battalion became engaged in a firefight with enemy forces. Our battalion commander could not be located. The following morning, he was relieved of his command at a change-of-command ceremony that was held behind a tent and with no troop formations to witness it.

Mr. President, if you cannot find a tent to use when you fire Mrs. Sebelius, I will buy one of suitable size for you. By the way, Mr. President, where were you when four Americans, including our ambassador, were killed in a terrorist attack on our diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya?
