Rep. Bill Johnson on ObamaCare: Sebelius Must Testify — and Get Fired

‘She has to come before the American people and help the American people understand what happened’

DOOCY: “Look, she doesn't want to show up in front of that House committee because there are a number of Republicans who have the majority in the House who want her fired.”
JOHNSON: “Well, Steve, I can certainly understand why she doesn't want to testify, because this is a disaster, but she has to come before the American people, uh, and help the American people understand what’s happened here. Uh, this is an absolute disaster. This is, you know, it's not rocket science, but an implementation of this size and magnitude takes a great deal of discipline. And it's very, very clear the Administration has not exercised that kind of discipline.”
DOOCY: “Sure.”
JOHNSON: “You and I -- go ahead.”
DOOCY: “Well I was going to say, are you one of the Republicans who says she could, she should get canned?”
JOHNSON: “Absolutely. You know, it starts at the top. You know, she went on, she went on Jon Stewart's show and he asked her repeatedly, ‘Look, the president has given a break to big business for a year. This thing is not ready. Why don't you give all Americans in the individual mandate a year break?’ and she couldn't respond to why they weren't willing to do that.”
