In response to a question from Congressman Trey Gowdy regarding the contraception mandate in the new health insurance legislation, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius admitted that she had not taken into account any of the Supreme Court's standard tests for balancing religious liberties against government power, nor could she cite any legal memo written by her lawyers that shows that HHS or the Obama administration considered the constitutionality of the mandate. Sebelius starts her answer with "I'm not a lawyer," and proceeds over the span of about four minutes to display an utter lack of knowledge and disregard for constitutional law.
