Yet another czar

with one comment

There seems to be no end to the number of “czars” Obama will appoint. (For the record, the official title is “Senior Policy Advisor”.)

The latest comes to light in recent news, although the appointment was made last June.

Washington — President Obama has appointed Kimberley Teehee as his chief adviser on Native American issues. The president says he has appointed Teehee, who is a member of the Cherokee Nation, to fill the newly created position of senior policy adviser for Native American affairs.

American Indians exempt from the Health Care bill

Exempting Native Americans From Mandate

Speaking at the National Indian Health Board Consumer Conference here, Health and Human Service Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said the president supports an exemption from that mandate for individual American Indians and Alaskan Natives. “I’m going to make it very clear,” she said, “the administration strongly believes that the individual mandate and the subsequent penalties don’t apply to American Indians or Alaska Natives.”

  1. “the administration strongly believes that the individual mandate and the subsequent penalties don’t apply to American Indians or Alaska Natives.”

    Native Americans have heard this kind of blanket statement before.

    But as they are nations themselves, such an approach would make sense – unlike most of what BO does. Left unsaid is that administrative belief, however, is irrelevant. What matters is what is in the bills that the legislators cram through.
