Fox News producer waylays Sebelius on eve of Obamacare launch

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius had a chipper outlook on the eve of the official Obamacare launch and offered her living in la-la land New Year’s resolution to Fox News Tuesday: “Lots of people getting good healthcare in 2014.”

A tenacious Fox News producer waylaid Sebelius as she left a Washington, D.C. restaurant to ask about the imminent launch of portions of Obamacare going into effect on Wednesday.

“I’m thrilled that we’re going to have millions of people for the first time that have health security,” she said, pausing on her way out. “It should be a great new year for lots of families across the country.”

When asked if she anticipated any “hiccups,” Sebelius said, “You know, I’m sure there will be some issues, there always are, people change plans every year,” but added, “we’ve done a lot of outreach with pharmacies and doctors and hospitals and consumers and helped to make the transition as smooth as possible.”

“Do you anticipate more delays?” the producer asked.

“Uh, no,” Sebelius curtly responded as she got in a waiting SUV.

“Well, she’s optimistic,” a skeptical Gregg Jarrett told viewers as the segment cut back inside to the Fox News studio.
