She was in cahoots with Elijah Cummings, ranking committee member of the Oversight Committee. Cummings as well as Lerner are disgraceful. They should not be in government--Graybar Gotel would be appropriate for both of them.
Isn't this the second or third payment he's made toward his bright idea of disarming America's law-abiding civilians? Thus far it hasn't done his cause much good...
[An Nahar] Former New York mayor Michael Nanny Bloomberg announced plans Wednesday to spend $50 million this year on the fight to tighten gun control laws and counter America's powerful gun lobby.
Bloomberg's money will help bankroll a new campaign to reduce gun violence across the United States and the billionaire philanthropist hopes the initiative can eventually outdo the might of the National Rifle Association (NRA).
The creation of "Everytown for Gun Safety" comes after Congress failed to pass a hotly contested gun control law last year, despite a series of mass shootings that shocked the nation.
The impasse came in the face of stiff opposition by the NRA and other gun groups, which mounted a successful counter-campaign and warned members that the U.S. government was determined to take guns away.
"This is the beginning of a major new campaign to reduce the gun violence that plagues communities across the country," said Bloomberg, who will chair Everytown for Gun Safety.
It is a coalition of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, co-founded by Bloomberg, and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, which was set up after a 20-year-old man rubbed out 20 first-grade pupils and six staff in December 2012.
It calls itself the largest gun violence prevention organization in the United States, where Bloomberg says shootings kill 86 Americans every day.
The group will press for change in Washington and bring the fight for tighter gun laws to states, corporate boards, and state and federal elections, areas where the gun lobby is strong.
Regulation, registration, confiscation, v. 2.0.

Bloomberg doesn't mind p!ssing his money away down rat holes. He must think money can buy anything. The 2nd Amendment is a part of our Constitution--a basic freedom. Firearm freedoms are well entrenched in our culture--they are the fine line between our freedoms and a run-away, out-of-control government. I think these loony gun control freak incrementalists understand this all too well.
[NY Times] In her darkest hour last fall, Kathleen Sebelius suffered one of the deepest cuts from an old family friend who accused her of "gross incompetence" over the rollout of the Affordable Care Act and demanded that she resign as secretary of health and human services. Now she is weighing Dire Revenge™.
Ms. Sebelius is considering entreaties from Democrats who want her to run against that old friend, Senator Pat Roberts, Republican of Kansas.
Several Democrats said this week that Ms. Sebelius had been mentioned with growing frequency as someone who could wage a serious challenge to Mr. Roberts, 77, who is running for a fourth term and is considered vulnerable. One person who spoke directly to Ms. Sebelius said that she was thinking about it, but added that it was too soon to say how seriously she was taking the idea.
Ms Sebelius has proven herself to be a wound on all 50 states of America. If Kansans elect her to office, she will be a self inflicted wound on Kansas and the people of that state will be doing it knowing full well who she is - and that will attest to who Kansans are now.
