    Today: Sebelius in the hot seat

    And not just because, like almost every Obama nominee (it seems) - she owes back taxes.

    Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of the Susan B. Anthony list, has some tougher questions for Sebelius:

    Earlier this week, Sebelius faced questioning by the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions. Unfortunately, during Tuesday’s hearing, Sebelius was not pressed for detailed answers about her ties to the abortion industry.

    Sebelius has a long record as Kansas governor, and she should be held to account for it. Now is the time to ask the tough questions about whether her record of support for the abortion industry will continue in earnest at the Department of Health and Human Services. Seblius should be required to answer the following questions in tomorrow’s Senate Finance Committee hearing.

    [Read them here.]

    From an inside source, Republicans do intend to ask Sebelius questions about her abortion record.

    I'll post an update as soon as I hear how it goes down.

    update: "Gov. Sebelius May Not Pay Her Own Taxes, but Has no Qualms about Using Tax Dollars to Pay for Others’ Abortions"

    update 2: the early word I'm hearing is that Sebelius got a complete pass on her abortion record during today's hearing. How deeply disappointing. update 3:

    “This is why Americans lose faith in their elected officials. They elect candidates who share and articulate well their ‘deeply held’ beliefs. Then when the candidate becomes an incumbent, he or she fails to effectively act upon those beliefs when given a chance to do so.”

    “Fortunately, pro-life Senators have one last chance. They can raise the issue of Governor Sebelius’ blind eye toward women’s health tonight when her nomination comes to the Senate floor for her final confirmation vote. I remind these Senators, millions of pro-life Americans are watching and waiting, and they strongly urge you to fulfill your duty to thorough public debate over the Sebelius nomination.”
