Sebelius vs. Wall Street Journal continues

The Wall Street Journal editorial board's war of words with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius continues to escalate. A Wednesday editorial challenged the former Kansas governor's account of how Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina decided to refund $155.8 million to policy holders to offset premium increases, saying that "if Ms. Sebelius is going to speak purported truth to power, she's going to need more respect for the facts." The editorial concluded: "Obamacare is laying waste to many reputations, and Ms. Sebelius won't enhance hers by turning HHS into the Department of Disinformation."
