Kathleen Sebelius, Meet Oliver North


Recommended Posts


Is the Department of Health and Human Services engaged in a domestic Iran-Contra?




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 sectorincluding from health-care executivesfor 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?


While working in the Reagan administration, Col. North was accused of using money raised in an arms-for-hostages swap with Iran to fund and work with private organizations providing military support to rebel armies in Nicaragua. North was found to have done this even though Congress had refused to provide funding and prohibited spending any available funds for such purposes
