Brace for impact: HHS secretary salutes Al Sharpton for a ‘life fighting for what’s right’

The IRS Commissioner keeps whining that his department needs more funding, so the Obama administration should have sent him to meet with Al Sharpton for collection purposes and told Koskinen his department gets to keep whatever he brings in.

Instead, HHS Secretary Sylvia Burwell was with Sharpton yesterday and delivered the verbal equivalent of the launch of HealthCare.gov:

Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Burwell on Monday morning praised Al Sharpton in a breakfast speech before his National Action Network.

“I’ve had the pleasure of knowing the Reverend for many years, and have worked with him from my time in the Clinton administration to my time at Walmart to now,” Burwell said, according to her prepared remarks.

After quoting Martin Luther King Jr., Burwell added, “Reverend Sharpton has spent his life fighting for what’s right, no matter how challenging. I want to thank you for your courage, tenacity and persistence.”

In a truly transparent and responsible federal government this would be a clarion call for daily mandatory drug testing.
