Sebelius Pegs the Irony Meter

Guest Post by Jeff Perren

Commissar Kathleen is at it again. (For my friends nearer the top of the world, she's the Secretary of Health and Human Services, a Cabinet position, and now public enemy #2 on my list.)

Rushing to rationalize her decision to let McDonald's opt out of certain ObamaCare-required actions — violating the U.S. Constitution's Equal Protection clause in the process — she had this to say: "This is a health care model built around the private market," she said. "It might be the salvation of the private market."

I guess she's now joined the George Bush school of capitalism, where you violate it in order to save it.
If nothing else, it demonstrates that Progressives are so far gone, they can't even recognize the distinction between the free market and a fascist one.
