WATCH: HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius outright ignores reporter’s question

In a last ditch effort to get Americans signed up for Obamacare ahead of Monday’s deadline, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was on a media blitz during which she continued her habit of pleading the Fifth by outright ignoring a reporter’s question about the unpopularity of the law.

“Sebelius was on a television station in Oklahoma, and the way I’m hearing this reported – even on The Blaze – is she was dumbfounded, just stunned. She didn’t know what to say,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “I don’t think so. I think it’s much worse than that. She wasn’t dumbfounded like this. She heard the question, [but] she’s not going to respond to it, period. She’s like, ‘Screw you. I’m not even going to dignify that.’”

Below is a clip of Sebelius’ appearance on KWTV-TV:

“Just shows how arrogant these people. They don’t feel like they have to answer,” Pat said. “She didn’t even have to say, ‘I’m not going to dignify that with an answer.’ She didn’t say that. She just clammed up.”

The lack of transparency from the Obama Administration – especially in relation to Obamacare – doesn’t stop there. While the White House it touting 7 million people have signed up for coverage, a closer look at those figures paints a slightly different picture.

Forbes’ Avik Roy took a look two recent studies that don’t reflect well on President Obama’s signature healthcare law:

A new study from the RAND Corporation indicates that only one-third of exchange sign-ups were previously uninsured.

The RAND study hasn’t yet been published, but its contents were made available to Noam Levey of the Los Angeles Times. RAND also estimates that 9 million individuals have purchased health plans directly from insurers, outside of the exchanges, but that “the vast majority of these people were previously insured.”

The RAND report appears to corroborate the work of other surveys. Earlier this month, McKinsey reported that 27 percent of those signing up for coverage on the individual market were previously uninsured.

Furthermore, when you consider who has actually paid for coverage, the number of people truly ‘signed up’ for Obamacare shrinks even further:

One important finding of the McKinsey survey was that the proportion of those who had formally enrolled in coverage, by paying their first month’s premium, was considerably lower among the previously uninsured, relative to the previously insured. 86 percent of those who were previously insured who had “selected a marketplace plan” on the exchanges had paid, whereas only 53 percent of the previously uninsured had.

If you apply that math to the RAND figures, you get this: of the people who have paid their first month’s premium on the Obamacare exchanges, and are thereby enrolled in coverage, 76 percent were previously insured, and 24 percent were previously uninsured.

Read the entire Forbes article HERE.

“So what you find is somewhere between 12% and 24% of the people signing up for Obamacare are both previously uninsured and currently paying,” Stu surmised. “So your top number there – if the studies are accurate – would be 1.7 million signups, not 7 million signups.”

While the Obama Administration as refined and redefined its enrollment ‘goals’ many times over the years, these studies show the number of previously uninsured Americans signing up is simply not up to snuff.

“It’s becoming like Common Core math,” Glenn concluded. “So crazy. Congratulations, America. This is what we have.”

    They don’t care how many people sign up. They care about having this law on the books long enough that no one would dare repeal it. It’s all about control. And it worked.

  • Daniel Spickard

    I’m telling you, Obama-care was never meant to work. The democrats knew thay the people of this country would never accept the single payer system, so they cooked up Obama-care to destroy the whole healthcare system. Then they were going to push the single payer system as the only way to recover the healthcare industry. We need to put a stop to this, and the only way to stop this evil plan is to vote Republican in this up coming mid term elections, and regain control of the senate. We need to regain the senate by a 2/3 majority to repeal, and replace this screwed up train wreck before they have the chance to make it happen.

    As painful as it is or me to say it, I agree with Irish Pepper in saying that a question wasn’t really posed to her before the ackward pause. As a matter of fact, it almost sounded to me like the reporter was closing out the interview with a final statement before thanking her for joining them.
    The last thing I would ever want to do is defend that numbskull, but I suppose the last thing a democrat like her would do is come to the defense of a conservative, which I guess makes me the bigger person, so I’ll deal with the pain hahaha

    I don’t know why Obama didn’t just order each state to balance their budget. When you do that, every state can set up its own customary exchange and then in places like California and Nevada where nobody works, it’s THEIR problem on how to insure the unfortunate. There’s nothing wrong with the goal of insuring as many people as possible, but how many people don’t want insurance? The party of pro-choice seems to not recognize this particular choice. So Obama takes control of the entire health care industry and penalizes people who don’t go along with the program. I for one got pissed when my health rates went up and the memo actually said explicitly that it was to fund the 26 year old losers who won’t find a job. So I decided not to be insured, they can’t have any of my money. But now I have to pay a penalty. This truly is not the land of the free anymore, this is the land of the enslaved.

    It should be clear, to any rational minded person, those claimed to have signed up for Obama-care are imaginary, fictional & made up. Curiously, Obama claims 7.1 million signed up. Call me skeptical, but numbers provided by this deceitful administration are likely to be untrue. Are Obama’s FALSEHOODS not limitless? Is his rhetoric not contaminated with troubling, partisan, perversions? In short, Obama’s endless, charismatic rhetoric is NOT to be trusted!

    Of course she is going to ignore it. They haven’t been honest about one single thing with ACA, implementation or failure rates. Yes, ACA. Are you really going to keep defending it Mr. Progressive? Here are the facts. I know the modern liberal
    hates facts but here they are.

    Barry said if you like your plan you can keep it. Flat out lie. A lie. On video of him saying it. No argument. He didn’t misspeak, he didn’t state a remark taken out of context. He lied. Americans lost their plans. Period.

    Barry said premiums would go down. Another lie. Anyone who is remotely
    successful and many just making average wages—their premiums went up. Now the extremely unsuccessful are happy. Because people like me are supposed to
    compensate their payments through our taxes. Oh and the expansion of Medicaid
    for many who will not pay at all. Again off the backs of the producers. But the
    selling point of cheaper insurance was a lie. Premiums went up. No defense of
    Barry.

    And the rollout is a disaster. That’s what you can expect from government running
    healthcare. Look at the U.S Post office as Barry gave example. It is going
    bankrupt as well.

    And of course the largest contention is one man pays so another does not. Each
    premium according to need. The majority pay more so others can pay less. That
    “according to need.” It comes from a certain Manifesto if you remember—by Karl
    Marx. But no ACA isn’t really Marxism. My mistake entirely.

    And ACA threatens our economy which was already in trouble. Deep trouble. Because people like me refuse to comply with ACA. Law of the land? If is a law that
    defies my natural rights as a free man. I will not be ordered to pay higher
    premiums so another may pay less. And now ACA will not sustain itself. The
    result? The collapse I predict in fiction. I don’t need to predict it in my own
    writings. History predicts it for me. So does third grade math. So if you would
    really like to see the United States fall then keep supporting these lunatics
    that are implementing the policies which have caused the fall of other empires
    in the past.

    In all fairness, I did not hear a question but a statement from the reporter. She looked like she was waiting for the follow-up question to his statement.

    Remember, Democrats and only Democrats gave you ObamaCare. Repeal ObamaCare and throw out every idiot Democrat who voted for ObamaCare.

    Vote for the most Constitutional, Conservative, Christian candidate with American Values and who has a chance of winning in all elections – Federal, State and Local – That pretty much rules out Democrats, and third-party candidates don’t have a chance at winning elections.

    On the contrary, the entire administration and this monstrous law are questionable, and today when Obama went on the south lawn to gloat about the numbers (which are notably inaccurate) he surrounded himself with sycophants that did nothing but cheer and applaud his lies.

    There is no real reason to believe anything that comes from this administration. They have zero credibility and are not above lying about everything they do, or everything that is done by those who oppose them.

  • Bill Tilghman

    Does it matter? Every claim these people make regarding this law is questionable and they did that themselves by lying to us so often and to such a ridiculous degree. They know two percent of the population have signed up for this farce of a program, big whoop. There is no reason to praise this law or the people behind it. It is compulsory participation by force of the IRS. I do not find that cause to celebrate about anything, especially in the one nation that was founded on individual liberty.

    We can look at people like Sebelius in different ways. It is the American way to follow political correctness, whether in government or even in business. How many times have I seen the top management in a company completely out of whack with the needs of the business to the point of bankruptcy? Yet, the ones who objected or tried to do the right thing got fired! I can’t believe that Sebelius is plain dumb, but has to defend her position and preserve her status. That’s why she blurts out the bamacare agenda while ignoring any oposition or questions that she is not prepared to answer. I feel sorry for the ardent libturds who follow this Idealism, as I have them in my own family too.

    WRONG! She, Sebilius was NOT asked a question. I do not like her beause she is another of b-o’s paid liars. But you are falsely accusing her of not answering a question. The news anchor made a statement about obamacare. Go back and listen. He did not ask her a question. After his statement, she either chose to not participate in the conversation, or possibly she was then waiting for a question. When she said nothing more, and he thought perhaps she could not hear him, he then thought he had lost the connection with her. When she said she could hear him, he then chose to thank her for her time. And then ended the time with her. Are we getting as bad as the libtards, and making things up as we go, just because we don’t like someone? If so, we are the disgraceful ones.

    There are 14 seats in play for the Senate for the mid-terms. We’re pretty much guaranteed 6 seats, and some say we’re good for 11. We’ve got 45 seats currently, and would need 65 for a 2/3 majority.

    That is simply not possible as the most we can hope for is 59 seats by taking all 14 available seats. So, while we’re virtually assured to take the Senate, we will not achieve the 2/3 majority required for veto proof votes and will require some amount of Democrats to side with us to repeal Obamacare, as well as 287 votes in the House…

    Totally off topic, but yes, the state of Massachusetts is CAUSING the death of Justina Pellitier who they have removed from the care of her parents who did nothing wrong whatsoever, and is refusing to provide her with the medical treatment she needs. The state has done this to other children, and cannot even account for something like 143 children it has taken from parents, and is responsible for the deaths of 98 children that it removed from parents care according to the Attorney for the Pellitier family. .

    …and no one seems to be able to stop the State. No one seems to be able to stop the out of control Department of Child and Family Services who removes children from parents upon mere heresay or upon a whim, as in this case.

    Absolutely right! There are no democrats worthy of public office, especially those who were in Congress, (both House and Senate), during the past ten years. They have done nothing but betray the public trust that goes with our votes, and none of them deserve to continue in office. That is what the next election in November is about.

  • Bill Tilghman

    It matters a great deal, and my question was rhetorical, but not because there was no question asked. The entire interview was a question, a question of who is going to stand up and take the heat for this egregious overreach of federal government power.

    It only matters that this woman, the chief water carrier for this program has displayed the utmost in incompetence and partisan boot licking. She was obviously holding her tongue after the statement and it is clear by her body language, expression and lack of response that she wanted to say something. Was she afraid of being seen as going offensive on the reporter so close to the deadline for enrollment in this farce of a compulsory insurance scam? She knew she was being prodded by the reporter, and her silence said more than her words might have. There is a reason this administration didn’t cut her off after the failed rollout, and we deserve to know just what the reason is for her continued presence as the face of Obamacare. I consider her to be a heat sink – all the harmful heat being directed to her instead of the administration.

    The chutzpah of these people is infuriating to those of us who are subject to their directives, and those of us who are decent, hard working and honest people that understand our success is the product of our own work and character, and not some government hand out.

    The most aggravating thing most people find in this administration is the lack of integrity and the lack of personal responsibility that the people within the administration put out there for public consumption on a daily basis. The constant lying, misdirection, blame gaming that these officials engage in has become de riguer, and that should not be. We expect those we elect and the people they appoint to be of a higher caliber and thus above reproach. Rehashing past administrations is a sorry substitute for fixing the problem, and that seems to be the only response we get when this administration and those responsible for it are confronted on the subject.

    Kathleen Sibelius wields great power by virtue of the office she holds and the powers imbued to that office by her boss, the chief executive who resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. She should be answerable to the American people, but it seems that none of these appointed government employees answers to us. Her silence is akin to that of the woman at the center of the IRS controversy taking the fifth amendment before Congress. As long as these people are allowed to dictate to the people with immunity from sanctions or even being held responsible, despite the wealth of evidence that points to them, as long as that is the case the people are no longer in charge of any of the personal freedoms granted under the Bill of Rights.

    Now those very same Democrats want to run as far as they can from this law, which just a few years ago was the best thing ever – to them – and just what the doctor ordered to “FIX” the health care system in this country. There was nothing broken about the health care system to begin with! The problem was within the health insurance business, and like all insurance businesses which exist to absorb risk, they make certain that you pay plenty for it while they whittle their risk down to a sliver. Insurance in many forms has been a confidence racket for many years. They love you sending in those premiums but will fight you in court with armies of attorneys before paying your claim. The insurance companies will spend thousands to get out of their responsibility regarding your policy, and when forced to pay will offer you pennies on the dollar.

    What we needed was health insurance reform, what we got was a damned mess of a law that did nothing for the problem.

    you have that absolutley 100% correct,
    it’s ALWAYS been about a single payer system. even the itiots who voted for obama twice would agree that handing over TOTAL control of our health care system to the Feds is disasterous , making all Dr’s & health profesionals gov employees is Crazy. do we really need another …IRS …Internal Rectal. Service. unless making sure welfare/foodstamp/section 8 recipients are drug tested..i’ll bet thats on their agenda next too.
