Sebelius and the Arrogance of the Ruling Class

In the private sector if an employer has a an employee who is not responsive to their customers then it's a wise employer who fires the one and hires another that will actually take responsibility for the job they're hired to do. (with the possible exception of single franchised utilities, try reasoning with an electric utility worker)
That's because the salaries are derived from the voluntary use or purchases of what that private business offers.
However when government confiscates revenue at will from earners and uses it to pay the salaries of arrogant, self-important, appointed civil servants their salaries aren't dependent on a customers good will.
What happens then is the arrogance of unaccountability.
Sebelius thinks she doesn't have to answer to congress, sort of like Lois Lerner.
Looking down at the little people.
They're civil servants and the government has mandated that we use their services so we have no choice but to pay their salaries and take it when they tell us to pound sand.
This ain't a new thing but it has come into full display because of the current occupant of the White House who's basically set the tone for open disdain of the citizens of this country.

What they're saying to us is we have to take their mediocrity and incompetence and there ain't a damn thing we can do about it.
Elections do have consequences you know.
