Kathleen Sebelius literally speechless when reporter tells her Oklahomans hate Obamacare

Sebelius

A local Oklahoma News 9 reporter’s interview with Kathleen Sebelius ended sooner than expected when he told the Health and Human Services Secretary how unhappy people in his state were with Obamacare.

“At last check, 64 percent of Oklahomans aren’t buying into the health care plan, they don’t like Obamacare, and they’ve been pretty vocal about it,” the reporter said. “Now that’s going to be — still continue to be — a tough sell, but we’ll see how that plays out over the coming months.”

After waiting several seconds for a response he tried to explain away the dead air time:

“Alright, Secretary Sebelius, thank you so much for being with us this morning. I think we’ve probably lost sound here or something.”

But that wasn’t the case. “I can hear you,” Sebelius said, and she thanked him for having her.

    The excuse bucket is running on empty.

      We can now take those empty buckets and use them to catch heads at the end of Madame Guillotine.

        From the article: ““I can hear you,” Sebelius said”

        It seeems that Sebelius can often hearm, but does not respond. She has for many years heard reports of corruption at her agency.

        I would love for Sebelius to address the appearance of systematic violations of the rights of children and parents by HHS funded Title IV-D and IV-E agencies. In Michigan, major news outlets reported that at least two children were improperly removed from their parents care by so called “orders” which appear to have been created by social workers wielding rubber stamps. In Kentucky, major news outlets reported that children were found with foster parents with criminal records. In Connecticut, an HHS Inspector’s General report found that federal laws requiring background checks were ignored. Sebelius’s Inspector General relies on “annual self assessments” rather than meaningful audits of these programs, which appears to violate the Single Audit Act and the government auditing standards. (More information is available in the reddit men’s rights FAQ)

        Caring for these children requires the effective administration and faithfully and auditing of HHS funded programs, and I hope that Sebelius will reform her agency to protect vulnerable Americans, but, for now, those children and parents must hope for justice and persevere.

    It has always been a piece of crap; Bee n talking about this phony Affordable Healthcare Act. from day one; This was Hillary Clinton’s baby from the get go; then funny man had to jump on her ship boasting he could sell the people on the UNIVERSAL Health Care; Not all of us AMERICANS are as dumb as the foreigners they have on the hill.

    • (CofC) Cult of Cannibals

      Yes, keep calling it Hillary/Obama care. We need to repeat that billions of times everywhere

      • moafu

        yes, yes,
        or Obillary Care….or HillamaCare. Will join in the “repeats”.

      • Ronald Hunt

        Why don`t you just swallow your pride and admit this thing is a fiasco and move on?? You`ll be much more relieved if you do. We`ll actually forgive you for being wrong all this time.

        • (CofC) Cult of Cannibals

          I signed my wife and myself up for Affordable Healthcare yesterday. We are both 50 and I smoke on occasions. It was inexpensive and did not have freakishly high deductibles. It was also safe Ron; it did not compromise my personal financial information like I thought. Best yet it only took 15 minutes. Guess you were right.

          April fool

          • LittleRoot_48

            Get back with us when you’ve had your first doctor/hospital visit and let us know how it’s going.

    • Alex Avedikian

      Would you even admit it if your next Health Insurance policy was better and cheaper?

      • Mo86

        It’s not been.

        Now, anything to say on the story?

      • jimbobbi

        My healthcare is schedule to go up 40 percent this year. I know it cant be that much better, I don’t know how you measure cheaper but for me, that’s not it.

        What? cat got your tongue, guess you better see a doctor about that. Oh yea, good luck on that one

      • Viva la Revolucion

        No, I’d be embarrassed and thank the people who are subsidizing me like any decent person would. Instead, those being subsidized now view it as a right, demand more, and become violent when told their handouts are unsustainable.

        • apricered

          Which is the ‘whole’ point of this exercise; and other BO stuff he’s pulled’ on the country!! To know what that means, take a look at Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules For Radicals’!!!

      • Herman Vogel

        It won’t be better OR cheaper,,we haven’t seen the REAL carnage yet,,,remember, employer mandate hasn’t hit, nor has this Albatross run as full speed. This could have all been averted by demanding insurance campanies sell across state lines. That would encourage competition and competition ALWAYS lowers prices. And for they one that SAY they can’t afford it,,,after a LONG investigation, we could have given the TRULY needy a subsidy at MUCH less then the $1 trillion this mess is going to cost us, U.S., tax payers a year. And, Illegals would have been omitted from receiving a Tax Paid For insurance. Illegals right now are being processed into the plan,,,in the Mexican Consulate.

        • Eric G

          I was engaged in a “debate” with someone on here who was defending the law. When I asked him what is so great about it, he threw out points such as not being denied coverage because of previous medical conditions, ability to stay on parents’ insurance until 26, no maximum cap on benefits. I suggested all of these issues could have been addressed with a one page bill for each, instead of the 7 foot high pile of paper that keeps growing with each new “adjustment” by the president. Also, selling across state lines could have dealt with these issues anyway, since true competition lowers prices and gets better product. They will just never, ever admit this whole thing has been a disaster.

          • Herman Vogel

            Little a suckling child will NOT turn away from the Mother’s milk of Freebees. sad, huh

            As long as the food supply remains open, there is no reason to look elsewhere.

          • Herman Vogel

            It’s like the story about the lady that felt sorry for the wild birds and put several bird feeders on her back porch so she could watch them and they could eat even when it was raining. Well, after a while she notice that they had crapped all over her outdoor furniture, porch and sidewalk and starting building nests in every nock and cranny. The ONLY thing she could do was to remove the feeders and now she has a clean porch and her grocery bill doesn’t have “Bird Seed” on it . Same with the Leaches and Illegals,,,if we Don’t feed them,,,they leave. Or become productive…six of one.

          Illegal immigrants do not qualify for ACA insurance. How can people still not know this?

          • Herman Vogel

            They are NOT supposed to be able to get EBT, Sec-8, Medicaid AND Vote either,,,but they do. Disgusting,,,Remember in Nov. and make sure your friends know the FACTS.

          • http://google.com/ obadiahlynch

            My friends do know the facts, but then, they’re better informed than the folks over here, some of whom still seem to think illegal immigrants are eligible for ACA.

          • Herman Vogel

            Dang,,,You friends with Obama…LMAO..sorry, had too. ;)

          • http://google.com/ obadiahlynch

            We’re like this, yo..

          • sc

            they may not qualify but there was a article a few days ago that said 3.5 million had signed up and that barry would not pass on the information to the I.N.S.

          • http://google.com/ obadiahlynch

            Didn’t see it. It sounds dubious. But regardless, if they are illegal they don’t qualify for ACA. That’s all I’m trying to get across.

        • curmudgeon

          Herman, we both know this has little or nothing to do with affordable healthcare, but is all about controlling more of everyone’s lives with government control.

        My admission: My family, now, pays more for less, but, there will always be fools who think themselves more knowledgeable about others lives than the ones living them.

      • psychosally

        it wont happen-wasnt designed to happen-its only about control-not healthcare

  • The_Questman

    Democrats really, really, really, really hate facts. But usually they go off the deep end screaming and talking over people instead of being silent.

    • lilylongflower1

      republicans never utter facts, it’s against their religious belief of willfull ignorance.

      • Anthony

        Wtf are you talking about?

        • Alex Avedikian

          She’s talking about the “facts” conservatives use. Mostly regurgitated from Fox…

          • Julie forrest

            The number 1 news media in america! Research and you’ll see for yourself!

          • MinistryofFear

            No we get our facts off the internet. You know the gadget Al Gore “invented”

          • Burn_the_Witch

            Oh look, yet another troll talking about FOX when no one else is.

            I think FOX is quoted by more angry lefties than by conservatives.

          • Anthony

            Oh, you mean the “facts” that “news” outlets like MSNBC and CNN use… What a libtard response.

          • Anthony

            I got it! You mean things like Harry Reid’s facts that the Obamacare horror stories were lies promoted by Republicans, and then his statement that he never called those people liars a month later. Or maybe Lerner’s “facts” that IRS targeting wasn’t politically motivated and she didn’t do anything wrong. Those facts right??

          • Eric G

            Please provide us with evidence to back up your statement. Just sayin…

          • sfcmac

            As opposed to the hacks at MSNBC.

          • mac12sam12

            Fox had the facts about obamacare years ago while other state run media sources were touting this disastrous bill. You must be one of the subsidized, or more likely, a free rider. The costs to the middle class are outrageous.

          • Anthony

            Here’s another fun liberal “fact”. Wasserman Schultz accused a conservative media outlet of misquoting her over something she said in relation to what a Republican supposedly said about Israel. She even said “And unfortunately, that comment was reported by a conservative newspaper. It’s not surprising that they would deliberately misquote me.” She was quoted quite accurately, and never apologized for her accusation. None of this came from Fox, except where she blatantly lied. She is a turd, just like the rest of the Democratic party.

          • curmudgeon

            No one can argue with your analysis. They are all living proof that turds cannot be picked up by the clean end.

          • LittleRoot_48

            Well, you just keep on regurgitating your talking points from MSNBC.

      • ron

        Lily, were you born stupid or did you grow up to become that way.

      • MrJay1

        Maybe but conservatives do. And you are an idiot.

      • (CofC) Cult of Cannibals

        RINO’s? Agreed

      • Mo86

        No, that would be liberals.

        Speaking of facts, what evidence do you have that all Republicans are “religious”? You mean Muslim? Hindu? Buddhist?

        What religious belief of willful ignorance are you referring to? Show it to me in their religious text.

      • dynamitewoman

        i DEFY YOU TO GIVE ME ONE FACT,JUST ONE, THAT IS RELATED TO THE TRUTH THAT HAS BEEN UTTERED BY THE SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS IN THE LAST 5 YEARS? THE UTUBE VIDEO THAT CAUSED BENGHAZI WOULD BE A GOOD PLACE TO START. THE WORKPLACE INCIDENT (OR TERRORIST ATTACK”) AT FORT HOOD? THE FAKE BIRTH CERTIFICATE OF THE FAKE POTUS? GO FOR IT LILYLONGFLOWER? DONT FORGET THE MUSLIM INVASION AND THE FUNDING OF TERRORISTS BY HUSSEIN. WAITING…

      Never been there have you? People there are so much better in character than those from liberal armpits and cesspools like NY, Massachusetts and Kalifornia. They can actually think for themselves.

    • LittleRoot_48

      Better Oklahoma than any one of the elitist cesspools in the Northeast.

  • lilylongflower1

    there are no nice words for people that stupid. ms. sebelius did well to hold her tongue.

      she was fed facts and had no reply cause the truth hurts

        How do you know they were “facts” what source did the “reporter” cite?

        • MinistryofFear

          Obozo and his gang change the numbers daily on who’s enrolled. Didn’t he tell O’Reilly before the Super Bowl that there were 9 million already enrolled?

  • Candace Zingg

    Need to go over to Ted Cruz’s FB page and post this….. Seems Mediaite is proclaiming people are ” happy” and better off, on Cruz’s unofficial pole. All the liberals have to do is ” like”, and the more ” likes”, it goes to the top of the poll.. We all know they are paid!!!!

    • Alex Avedikian

      Sure…whenever the liberals win it’s because they cheat, and whenever conservatives win it’s because they are “great Americans on the side of righteousness”… Vomit

      • Eric G

        Internet polls are in no way a reliable measure of true public opinion, since there is no way to regulate who or how many participate for no reason but to tilt the scale one way or another. This is true for both sides.

    • Ed Richardson

      Looked at the page,nothing but trolls spewing talking points.
