    I just learned an interesting fact. Swbelius is such a darling of Planned Parenthood that the Kansas City Chapter of PP threw her a big Birthday Party when she was Kansas Governor in 2007. They bragged about dancing in a conga line inside while the protesters were carrying on outside!
    “…in May 2007, Planned Parenthood held a gala fundraiser in Kansas City, in Missouri’s historic jazz district.
    The two featured guests were Planned Parenthood’s national presidentm Cecile Richardsm and Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, whose birthday was the rationale for the party.
    By the end of the evening, according to the local Planned Parenthood newsletter, “Hundreds of PPKM supporters were dancing in a conga line around the concert hall.”

  5. It is a little hard to get the thread of the dialogue since the Republican Congressman gives Ms. Sibelius so little time to respond and cuts her off, but she appears to be saying that reductions in the growth of the wasteful Medicare Advantage program cut the Medicare growth rate and thus extend the solvency of the fund. It is true that as an accounting matter under unified government accounting the full amount of trust fund savings cannot be counted towards the cost of funding healthreform. That is why the official CBO cost estimates for healthreform do no such thing. They don’t engage in any “double counting.” Even Representative Paul Ryan admits that:
    So the accusation about “double counting” goes to past Democratic political rhetoric, but has nothing to do with the official cost scoring of the healthcare reform law.
    Perhaps if the Congressman had given Ms. Sibelius enough time to explain that would have come out in the testimony. But getting the soundbite for use in the echo chamber was too important for that.
