Watch: The question that left Kathleen Sebelius speechless at hearing

sebelius

Wednesday was a bad day for Kathleen Sebelius, especially when she met up with a Georgia congressman who left the normally cool and collected Health and Human Services secretary stammering at the end of their exchange.

U.S. Rep. Phil Gingrey asked Sebelius at the House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing about the frequency of meetings she had with President Obama during the development of the much-maligned HealthCare.gov website, according to a C-SPAN video.

“A lot,” Sebelius quickly answered.

“Can you verify that?” Gingrey asked, throwing Sebelius completely off her game. All she could manage was,
“I … I … ” while waving her hands in the air.

The meetings became a significant focal point last week when Politico reported there was just one meeting recorded between Sebelius and the president from July 12, 2010, to Nov. 30, 2013.

Following the Politico article, NBC’s Peter Alexander and ABC’s Jonathan Karl questioned White House press secretary Jay Carney extensively on this point. Carney claimed that the White House visitor logs aren’t necessarily accurate and that the president and Sebelius had, in fact, met frequently, according to NBC.

Gingrey spoke to Breitbart News in an exclusive interview following the committee hearing.

“Today we witnessed more evasiveness from Secretary Sebelius as she bobbed and weaved her way through this morning’s hearing,” Gingrey said. “Whether she was unable to answer basic questions or simply refused to do so, it has to stop. She has been tasked with overhauling one-sixth of the economy and so far, Obamacare has been one disaster after another.”

“Patients and taxpayers deserve better,” he added. 

If it’s true that the two only met once, that bolsters the belief Obama is disengaged from his duties and responsibilities as chief executive.

    Jay Carney….’the White House visitor logs aren’t necessarily accurate.’ Isn’t it amazing at how there is always an excuse to attempt to justify their position?

    (Question) It’s been reported that BO the dog took a dump on the WH lawn 48 times this year. Mr. Carney, can you elaborate on that?
    (Carney) “Well, first of all, that question is crap. Secondly, it is our position that he may or may not have done it. At this point we have to say that we have no record of anyone actually ‘seeing’ him do it, so we can’t substantiate that claim at this time. However, if he in fact did dump on the law, which I am not saying is true, I’m sure there was someone there to clean it up. Next question….”

      apparently they are not asking the right person about the crap on the WH lawn, or the crap IN the WH.

    When you consider the lies starting with Benghazi and then this fiasco of a healthcare for Americans – Obama and his bunch should be jailed. If someone started a business here in the U.S. and did 1/10th of what this bunch of lawless people in Washington had done he would probably end up in jail for 60 years…. for Obama and his bunch I’d settle for hugh fines and 10 years.

    REALLY? The logs are not that accurate?

    “Following the Politico article, NBC’s Peter Alexander and ABC’s Jonathan Karl questioned White House press secretary Jay Carney extensively on this point. Carney claimed that the White House visitor logs aren’t necessarily accurate and that the president and Sebelius had, in fact, met frequently, according to NBC.”

    “Carney claimed that the White House visitor logs aren’t necessarily accurate and that the president and Sebelius had, in fact, met frequently, according to NBC.”

    Okay…if the White House visitor logs aren’t accurate, especially with top officials like the head of Health and Human Services visiting with the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, then what the hell does the WH have logs for?!? What an asinine response.

  • Rob

    I can tell you one thing. If the WH visitor logs aren’t accurate then we have a huuuuuge issue. Ohhh wait, we do have a huge issue. This administration can’t even manage a logbook. Oh wait, yes they can. They just can’t stop lying.
