Silent Sebelius

Sebelius Speechless After Oklahoma Reporter Tells Her How Unpopular Obamacare Is


Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius conveniently became speechless Monday when a KWTV reporter started to describe how unpopular Obamacare is in the state of Oklahoma.

"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," said the reporter. "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."

Sebelius decided to ignore the statement and awkwardly sit in the front of the camera in silence.

After this painful dead air period, the reporter cut in to say, "Alright, Secretary Sebelius, thank you so much for being with us this morning. I think we've probably lost sound here or something."

"I can hear you," Sebelius said, ending her silence. "But thanks for having me."
