404ward is among the mock slogans shared on social media as rumors start to swirl that the former embattled Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius is thinking of a possible Senate run in the State of Kansas.
Kathleen Sebelius, who resigned from her post last week, is now rumored to be eyeing a run for Kansas Senate.
Sebelius, who was in charge of implementing the affordable care actalong with its controversial and shoddy implementation of the health insurance marketplace websiteis weighing in on whether she should run for Senate in Kansas, at the urging of some key figures of the Democratic party.
Whether you think she should bow her head in shame, or proudly stand up with her head high as she announces a potential Senate bid against three-term Senator Pat Roberts, might depend on youre your view of health care reform. While Republicans have been looking for any excuse to derail the healthcare mandate, those who support the plan commonly referred to as Obamacare might simply be frustrated at the way the website has been working. The naysayers just might be those who think she’s a scapegoat who made it despite all odds. In the end, the Affordable Care Act managed to get more than 7 million subscribers in the health insurance marketplace by the March 31, 2014 deadline.
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, reported the New York Times Jeremy Peters.
The Twitterverse has already made its opinions known on her possible Senate race, and well, it hasnt been kind: Some even went as far as to create the tag #SebeliusCampaignSlogans.

At VOXXI we felt it was only fair to avoid the nasty or disrespectful comments on Twitter, but we couldn’t help but share those funny, albeit poignant Tweets that call out Sebelius on the error-prone rollout of the healthcare.gov website.

At least #SNL already does a good impression of me. Tweeted Caleb Hays and SpaceRacer423 tweeted, because I cant get a real job! (seriously, this is all I know & the market is terrible.)

The 404 reference refers to the dreaded error message web pages display on a browser along with the words “Page Not Found” for a website that either doesn’t exist, is down or is malfunctioning.
But as far-fetched as a senate campaign for Kathleen Sebelius might sound, the reason for her doing so is hope: In a state so prone to voting for Republican senatorial candidates, Democrats think Sebelius is the only one with a shot of defeating Republicans, especially if Tea Party backed Milton Wolf wins the primary election against Roberts. Sebelius was the governor of Kansas from 2003 to 2009.
It’s important to note that she has not officially come out saying if she will run or not, and some close to her highly doubt she will decide to.
