It's Not a "Government Takeover" or Anything...

Mentioned at Legal Insurrection:

Not satisfied with the colossal amounts of power that she would acquire under Obamacare if it isn't repealed, Health and Human Services (HHS) secretary Kathleen Sebelius has issued a 136-page "rule" that will now give her (and her subordinates) largely unchecked power to pass judgment on the prices of health insurance throughout the United States. Notwithstanding the fact that 43 states already regulate and approve health insurance premiums, Sebelius claims that we need an additional, more centralized, protection against insurers' unseemly 'profit motive.' But a far greater threat to the future of American republicanism is posed by the impulse that animates Sebelius and the bulk of the Obama administration: the power motive.

Another reason to cut HHS' budget by.... say.... 20% or so, Congressman Ryan.

And yet another reason that PolitiFart seems more like "SibeliusSpinner".

20% is being generous... with the exception of the NIH and CDC the whole department budget should drop to zero. Let Sebilius even try to write a rule with zero flunkies.
