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.

“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.”

'The Fedcoin is HERE': Glenn Beck reveals what the Fed was up to while YOU weren’t watching

While Americans were preparing for Thanksgiving last Wednesday afternoon, the Federal Reserve moved forward with its "Central Bank Digital Currency" program, and that wasn't the only controversial policy that was rolled out while you weren’t watching.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck reviewed the latest financial stories you may have missed over the holiday weekend, including how Biden's pause on student loan payments may be extended again and yet another sketchy Hunter Biden investment.

"You might have missed what happened Wednesday afternoon at the Fed," Glenn began. "They started their CBDC, Central Bank Digital Currency. Yes, the Fedcoin is here. Now they rolled it out on Wednesday — I mean, that was the only day they could do it, you know, because they've been denying that any of this stuff was happening. But they could only get it [launched] when no one was paying attention. So they rolled it out, and it's in its beta test now."

"By the way, India just rolled out its retail pilot program for digital rupees as well. But don't worry," he continued. "Maybe we should start having the conversation of, 'Gosh, this looks like the mark of the beast.' I mean, doesn't it? But surely it's not. Of course not. Not from the U.S. government. They never do anything underhanded or evil. Never."

China has been locking its citizens down for over two years under its zero-COVID policy, and it's becoming more and more clear that this isn’t just about COVID but something much more serious: slavery and control. Now it looks like many citizens have had enough. Protests are currently spreading throughout China and, unlike during the Tiananmen Square protests, the word is getting out.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck looked into the protests' "real motivations," explained how they’re different from the 1989 protests at Tiananmen Square, and predicted how these events are a "game-changer for the entire world."
