Because of course it isn’t.
In testimony before the Senate Finance Committee on Wednesday, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said delaying Obamacare implementation is not an option.
Why not? Cancer.
Sebelius: "Delaying the Affordable Care Act wouldn't delay people's cancer or diabetes or Parkinson's."

Sebelius on ppl who say ACA implementation should be delayed: That wouldn't delay people's cancer, diabetes, prenatal services, etc.

Sebelius says if the website is delayed people with diseases will get worse.. The website that doesn't work.These people think you're stupid
— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) November 6, 2013
Someone ask Sebelius why delaying the mandate means ppl cannot buy coverage. That’s asinine.

What about people like stage IV gallbladder cancer survivor Edie Littlefield Sundby who can’t keep the doctors who saved her life thanks to Obamacare?
Tell that to Edie Littlefield Sundby RT @philipaklein Sebelius: "Delaying the Affordable Care Act wouldn't delay people's cancer."

The administration is too busy smearing Ms. Sundby to worry about how Obamacare implementation is interfering with her cancer treatment.
@Sebelius people losing ins DOES delay them getting Tx for diabetes, parkinsons, cancer, Ocare has caused many to lose Doctors, treatment

Shorter Sebelius: delaying ACA will *KILL* people. Canceled cancer patient Edie Sundby is unavailable for comment.

We know the feeling:
The lady sitting in front me at this hearing looks like she may stroke out, or laugh out loud, every time @sebelius starts talking.

So, no delay. Forward!
