Trainwreck: Kathleen Sebelius’ Top Ten Testimony Fails
Trainwrecks look better than what is going on with ObamaCare.
Check it out:
HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius “totally blew it,” during today’s testimony, in Buzzfeed’s estimation. We agree. Here are ten reasons why: (1) Despite calling Obamacare’s roll-out a “debacle” (over which she’s presided), Sebelius still attempted happy talk:
“The Affordable Care Act, by any fair measure, is working for millions of Americans.” – Sebelius
(2) She actually said Obamacare’s disastrous website “has never crashed,” (!) adding that it is “functional.” That claim requires some hardcore parsing to even remotely justify, and regardless, it’s insanely terrible messaging. As if on cue, Healthcare.gov…crashed this morning and remained down throughout her testimony. This dichotomy produced several awkward (and priceless) visuals:
Rep. Olson holds up iPad with http://healthcare.gov on it, tells Sibelius “The exchange has been down during your entire testimony.”
