In direct defiance of a federal court order, Kathleen Sebelius and the Obama Administration continue to both fund and implement ObamaCare.  As part of an "educational outreach", because we are just too stupid to understand how wonderful ObamaCare is, HHS would increase its budget by $15.1M, over quadrupling its current budget, while increasing staffing by just under 50%.  This works out ot over $636,000 per new hire.  Ladies and gentlemen, your Obama administration looking after your money.  The arrogance, not to mention the criminal behavior, of this bunch is unbelievable.  Combined with Obama's new $3.7T budget proposal, the answer that we are getting from this administration in regards to the message sent by the American people on November 2nd, is "Screw You! We do what we want."  Are you pissed off yet?!

HHS looks to boost messaging efforts

The Obama administration health department office tasked with selling the healthcare reform law is looking to quadruple its budget while almost doubling the size of its staff.

Under the Department of Health and Human Services’ fiscal 2012 budget request, the assistant secretary for public affairs' office would get a bump from $4.8 million to $19.9 million in fiscal 2012. Meanwhile, the office would grow from 24 to 46 full-time equivalent employees.

Almost all of the new funding would be used to improve healthcare.gov and to conduct an educational outreach campaign “designed to help Americans understand and access their benefits and information under the law,” HHS wrote in its budget justification. The efforts were funded in fiscal 2010 and 2011 under the reform law, according to the budget document.
