NOW you tell us.

You may remember former HHS Secretary Kathleen Sibelius as an ardent ObamaCare supporter who never missed an opportunity to remind an angry nation of the wonders of Obama's "signature law." You may also remember her as a the woman who (along with Harry Reid) valued federal regulation above all and wanted to let a 10 year old girl die because, hey, "rules are rules."

She ignored higher premiums and deductibles, instead focusing on the nebulous "cost saving" aspects of ObamaCare. Her love, and overzealous protection, of the law became something of a joke - especially when she initially tried to defend the disastrous ACA website launch, only to apologize for it a few weeks later.

Now, suddenly, she agrees with a man who ebraced GOP claims that ObamaCare is a "crazy system" that "killed" small business owners and destroyed choice in rural America.

That man's name?  Bill Clinton.

She made the following comments during a Sunday segment with Chuck Todd:

Obviously, Sebelius is still trying to spin the ACA's failures into an attack on Republicans.  That's no surprise.  It's what Democrats do.  She's also trying to pretend that the law can be fixed.

It can't, because it's not broken.  It's functioning exactly as intended.

Conservatives always knew that the passage of ObamaCare had nothing to do with affordability. It's was the left-wing's dream legislation, written and passed without any GOP involvement. If you look at it from the Democrats' point of view, they absolutely nailed it.

The law is doing precisely what it was designed to do: create and unsustainable market and destroy choice as it marches the United States over the single-payer cliff. That was the plan from day one, and - if it hadn't been for Hillary Clinton's staggering defeat - it would have worked perfectly.

However, if you weren't a conservative, you might not have known that. You live in the bubble, and you get your news from NPR, CNN, or MSNBC.  You probably thought the "A" in "ACA" was supposed to stand for "affordable."

If that's the case, it might surprise you to learn that one of its biggest boosters, Kathleen Sebelius, just admitted that Republicans were right all along.
