Kathleen Sebelius fumbles for ObamaCare excuses | New York Post

By S.A. Miller

WASHINGTON — Embattled Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius fumbled for an excuse Wednesday to get out of enrolling in ObamaCare herself — falsely declaring that it would be “illegal.” Pressed to voluntarily sign up by Republican lawmakers at a confrontational congressional hearing, Sebelius offered up the excuse that it was against the law for her to give up her employer-sponsored federal insurance plan.

“It’s illegal,” insisted Sebelius, who is President Obama’s point person on implementing the national health-care law and answering for the defective ObamaCare Web site. Legal experts contradict Sebelius’ claim, which she made under oath. “She could legally do so,” Tim Jost, a law professor at Washington and Lee University in Virginia, told The Post. “Anyone who is a resident of a state, lawfully present in the US and not incarcerated can purchase insurance through an exchange.”
