HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius had no understanding of the Constitution and the law before "balancing" the Constitution with Obamacare's command for contraception coverage.
“So when you say you 'balanced' things,” Gowdy said, “can you see why I might be seeking a constitutional balancing, instead of any other kind?”
“I do,” Sebelius said, “and I defer to our lawyers to give me good advice on the Constitution. I do not pretend to be a constitutional lawyer.”
“Is there a legal memo that you relied on?” Gowdy asked. “At least when Attorney General Holder made his recess appointments, there was a legal memo that he relied on. Is there one that you can share with us?”
“Attorney General Holder clearly runs the Justice Department and lives in a world of legal memos,” Sebelius responded, saying she “relied on discussions.”
Memos from lawyers can be so tedious, with all those footnotes and citations. And her ignorance and indifference saves us from having to read the advice she received!
