Nothing changes . . .

Outgoing Health and Human Services Sec. Kathleen Sebelius is now refusing to testify before the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies, a Senate aide told The Daily Caller Tuesday.
 Sebelius had originally been set to testify before the subcommittee about the department’s 2015 $70 billion budget request on April 2.
According to another aide, however, several weeks after confirming the hearing date, she requested a date switch with the National Institutes of Health budget hearing on May 7. The committee accommodated her request.
Now, after announcing her resignation on April 11, she is refusing to testify according to the two aides, even though she is still the sitting secretary — remaining at the post until her successor, OMB Director Sylvia Mathews Burwell is confirmed.

ADDENDUM [HGS]: One wonders if this news may have something to do with Ms Kathy's reluctance to perjure herself testify:

"The contractor hired to fix the ObamaCare exchange website announced Tuesday that it would cost $121 million to get the site ready for a second open enrollment period in 2015"

That's a cool $30 million more than CGI's deal. Nice.
I'm a little confused, though:

"... second open enrollment period in 2015"

The second Open Enrollment period begins in the fall of 2014, so wouldn't the 2015 season be the third?
Or am I missing something?
