Marilyn Tavenner Now Before House Committee
Fox News Live | 10/29/13

Posted on 10/29/2013 7:24:03 AM PDT by pabianice

Ms. Tavenner -- head of Medicare and Medicaid enrollment -- is before the House committee investigating the Obamacare disaster. She looks totally ragged and is hoarse of voice; she looks like she has been dragged by horses. Almost totally out of it. Apparently she is the designated scapegoat for Obamacare, and she knows it. The chair is trying to get her to quote a number of people who have enrolled in Obamacare. She says she doesn't know and won't know for a while. She has admitted that many people who seek to enroll have gone onto Medicaid. Chairman Camp is walking down through the questions to try and get Ms. Tavenner to state how many people have signed-up for Obamacare. Ms. Tavenner says she has none of that information. This is painful to watch.

This should be in Breaking News. She has no numbers on how many have signed up - she is repeating the talking point “numbers will not be available until mid Nov.” - Over and Over!

This woman has ZERO experience when it comes to insurance.

Is Sander Levin dead?

She is the acting head of CMS - CMS was designated as the scape goat in a prior hearing by the website contractors. She is not giving up much info.

She is talking abnout something but it is NOT insurance. By the governments way of thinking I should be able to buy life insurance on my grandparents even though they have a pre-existing condition. They are dead.

This “hearing” is a joke. The Obama regime sent up a big ditz who is without a clue. She knows less about anything than Obama does. I didn’t think anyone was that stupid.

Rangel is a babbling fool. What’s his question? He’s using his time to campaign.

Brady just missed an opportunity to nail her. People are receiving notices of insurance coverage cancellation as of December 1st (vice Jan 1 as stated by Brady.) There will be gaps in coverage.

The vast majority of those added to coverage so far are Medicaid enrollees including Washington.

These clowns are writing the script for SNL’s skit for next Saturday night. NBC should be paying them for this. Congress definitely needs to look into adding a laugh track to these hearings.

If they “do not know how many people have been enrolled” then the system is a total failure.

The above statement, of course, is a lie. They know exactly how many people have been enrolled.

This woman is a well paid shill and ditz.

Obamcare has nothing to do with “health care”. It certainly has nothing to do with affordable “insurance”. It has everything to do with data collection, intimidation, control and slugging Democrat “enemies”. Just listen to the left in the media and even in the committee. If given the power their Nazilike ways would not only increase it would become the rule of law as they pass more laws they DID NOT EVEN READ!

These people I see on C-Span overall are the stupidest of the stupid. Besides that, they have no idea what real work and real American life is about.

Watching her on C-SPAN…. this snarky woman thinks it is running perfectly and when answering a question from an outraged constituent whose previous healthcare plan was increasing over 20%, she says that all these prior health plans MUST re-align with the ACA and provide at least 10 services not in there before, including accepting pre-existing conditions and birth control.

Lewis: Health care is a right not a privilege. Are food and shelter also rights? Everyone who needs emergency health care gets it. Obamacare is about insurance and not health care. 40% of doctors don’t accept Medicaid patients.

Lewis claims health care is a “Right” - raising his voice and pounding the table.

Many people do not have a Rolex. That is not fair. Everyone should have a Rolex. We need a special tax so people can have a Rolex. Maybe a Corvette too.

They should bring in the heads of the various insurance companies, letting them know ahead of time that they will be asked the following questions:

1) How many people have you signed up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act?

2) Have you been told to not reveal information about signups, or even received any communication hinting that it would not be desirable that you reveal information? If so, by who?

If they “do not know how many people have been enrolled” then the system is a total failure.

It could be a Clintonesque statement. She could have very deliberately told her people "I don't want to know the numbers".

The correct question is "Is there anyone in your department, or anyone known to you, who has those numbers, or even has the numbers as of any particular day in the past two weeks? If so, who, and would you please have that person come in?"

They just reduced the 5 min. for asking questions with answers to 3 min.!!! Stupid for the republicans to agree to this time limit!

IMO, watching these Liberal Vermin it like watching Hitler’s Nazi Party defending the Holocaust.

Waterboarding might be effective.
