Skip to comments.Jon Stewart on Obamacare's Sebelius: 'Maybe She's Just Lying to Me'
Posted on 10/08/2013 2:26:49 PM PDT by SunkenCiv
As Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sat down to be interviewed, the Comedy Central host opened his laptop and issued a challenge: "I'm going to try and download every movie ever made, and you're going to try to sign up for Obamacare, and we'll see which happens first."
The website for people who don't have health insurance through their employers opened on Oct. 1, but has been plagued with glitches. The administration said that was because the program is so popular, but even defenders such as Stewart didn't buy the explanation.
HHS has declined to give numbers for how many have signed up under state exchanges, and when Stewart asked, Sebelius replied, "Fully enrolled? I can't tell you because I don't know." ...
Stewart repeatedly pressed Sebelius on why the individual mandate to buy insurance can't be delayed for a year since employers did get a one-year delay. Republicans have a valid point on the issue, he said.
But despite Sebelius' multiple attempts to answer the question, Stewart remained unable to grasp her reasoning. "Am I a stupid man?" he finally asked.
Stewart, a supporter of the Affordable Care Act, told Sebelius it is frustrating for him to have to defend the law when it "is less than ideal or is functioning at what seems to be a level of incompetence that is larger than what it should be."
As he closed out the show, with Sebelius no longer at his desk, Stewart admitted, "I still don't understand why individuals have to sign up and businesses don't."
Perhaps it is just too complicated to grasp easily, he said. "But then I think to myself, well, maybe she's just lying to me just to me."

When you lose Jon Stewart, you’ve lost another 20% of America.
Stewart should have a look at my tagline.
Maybe John will finally learn what all of us Conservatives already know.
Government is the source, and not the solution of all the problems.
Here it is:
“The administration said that was because the program is so popular”
Holy God, even when they step on dog crap, these brain-dead obama butt-lickers imagine they stepped on a puddle of water.
And here is her full 10 minutes with Stewart:
....ah poor Jon, if you have paid attention for the last feakin year, most Americans wanted to know the same feakin thing...but no Jon, now that it's here...NOW NOW you don't understand
Gee, you think, Jon, you useless leftist puke?
>> Maybe John will finally learn
The idiot won’t learn a thing until his colon gets checked by the iron fist of govt health care.
Doubtful. He’s a true believer. However, he is just sharp enough to know that defending Obama blindly will make him look like a fool, and he doesn’t like that one bit. So, for the sake of his own ego, Stewart tends to lash out at Obama when he does things that are hard to defend.
I’ll bet if Stewart handed her the computer, Sebelius wouldn’t have a clue what to do with it.
Here’s the interview - in 2 parts:
In Part 2 at ~ 3:15 Sebelius states “we have brought Western Civilization to its’ knees.”
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
He wants single-payer socialized medicine because he thinks, as do all geniuses, that the FedGov does such a great job with everything else.
Not the usual comment from a leftist entertainment elite regarding a leftist appointed ruling class icon.
What’s a little lying to a mass infant murderer?
Jesus! Stewart - be careful - liberals don't play niceie nice... That said, thanks Jon - it took courage to stand up to one of 'em... tell your CPA to be extra careful with your returns... and hang in there.
ROFL!!! The Most Dreaded Nazi of Them All!
The American leftists have made Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin very happy.
THE MONEY QUOTE:
Toward the end, Stewart argued that a market-based strategy toward health care is a flawed concept in itself and that a single payer system would have been a more simple approach. But Sebelius jumped in, saying, if we could have perhaps figured out a pathway, that may have been a reasonable solution.
So this is jerry-rigged to deal with the crazy people? Stewart asked.
I think the president did not want to dismantle the health care that 85% of the country had,” Sebelius responded.
They didn’t lose Stewart they weren’t radical enough for this man who will never have to participate in the leftist health care debacle.
He's no Cronkite, but he'll do.
“. “Am I a stupid man?” he finally asked.
Stewart, a supporter of the Affordable Care Act[...]”
Well, yes. But this level of incompetence is so blatantly obvious that even some of the stupid can see it when it kicks them and throws things at them, and pulls their hair. Too bad you didn’t see the obvious when it was merely having a fit in the lobby, and the other residents were complaining to you.
If these morons were in Paris in 1940 they would have been trying to convince every body that the Germans stomping down the Champs Elysees were just tourists.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
If you are ‘old’ enough to remember who used to be the ‘brunt of all jokes’.......
“The reason the Germans took Poland so easy was they marched in backwards and everyone thought they were leaving”.
Must a chilly night in hell.
Pathetic when even a douche bag like Stewart gets it and the regime just continues to play dumb.
The CPUSA has lost Jon Stewart.
He’s no Cronkite, but he’ll do.
Why do you say that? He wanted a straight one payer system.
