Sylvia Burwell, Obama's Nominee for Head of HHS, Had Responsibility of Vetting Presidential Speeches for Accuracy; Apparently Gave the Blessing to Obama's "If you Like Your Doctor" Lie Dozens of Times

I guess her previous background lying on behalf of Obamacare well-qualifies her for the job.

The agency Burwell heads, the Office of Management and Budget, is responsible for the president’s budget. But OMB also has another, lesser-known responsibility: fact-checking presidential speeches. Every proposed presidential utterance is scrubbed for accuracy by OMB.

When speechwriters finish a draft presidential address, it is circulated to the White House senior staff and top cabinet officials in what is known as the “staffing process.” As part of that process, nonpartisan career policy experts at OMB review the speech and are responsible for attesting to the factual accuracy of everything the president says.

So thanks to Burwell’s nomination, Americans may finally get to the bottom of how the biggest presidential lie in recent memory made it though OMB’s fact-checking process — not once but dozens of times.

...

Burwell should explain to Congress and the American people how her office allowed blatant falsehoods to get into presidential speeches, including whether political aides overruled career policy advisers who warned that the president’s claims were untrue.

So, she ordered Shutdown Theater to punish American citizens, and approved of Obama's oft-told lie.

These hearings will be epic.
