Rand Paul: We know government is inept, but ObamaCare is bringing it to a whole other level of incompetence

Sen. Paul, as you might have guessed, was distinctly not impressed with Secretary Sebelius’s testimony in front of the House Energy and Commerce Committee today, from which, apparently, we were meant to accept that just saying ‘I am accountable’ is the same thing as actually being held accountable.
I think government is inherently inept, but this brings it to a new level of incompetence. I can’t imagine how she could continue in her job, she should resign really from mere embarrassment. I’ve never seen anything this bad and here’s the thing when the president said you could keep your doctor and now we find out 2 million people are going to lose their doctor and lose their insurance, I just can’t imagine how they can be proud of what they’re doing and how he can’t say that’s going to hold someone responsible. …
Yes, but an appropriate sense of humility and/or shame isn’t really a thing with this administration, is it?
The point here, as many writers have been pointing out lately, is that the “glitches” and unpleasant surprises many Americans are now experiencing are hardly helping to advance Obama’s progressive message about big government as an effective rather than an encumbering means to help people and “fairly” organize society — and as ObamaCare’s detrimental effects continue their inevitable march, the president is going to have a lot of ‘splaining to do.
