Sebelius adds Christmas levity to frustrating ObamaCare shopping experience?

Published November 30, 2013 FoxNews.com

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, embattled over glitch-plagued HealthCare.gov, is suggesting some standard holiday shopping tips for Americans trying to buy insurance on the website.

In an apparent attempt at holiday levity amid coal-tinged criticism, Sebelius suggests Americans “avoid the lines” by shopping on the site during off-peak hours, after weeks of the ObamaCare site crashing because of too many visitors at once.

“As the holiday shopping season heads into high gear, we have some consumer friendly shopping tips for individuals looking for quality affordable health insurance,” writes Sebelius on a blog post Friday for the Huffington Post.

She also suggests there’s “no need to rush,” considering Americans have 23 shopping days in December to purchase coverage that begins January 1, another apparent attempt at averting more volume-related crashes after the Nov. 30 deadline -- when such problems were to be fixed to accommodate the “vast majority” of online shoppers.

“And unlike Black Friday, [insurance policies] won’t run out,” writes Sebelius who recommends American who need a personal “ObamaCare” shopper use the 800 call center, which is open 24/7 and has operators to accommodate 150 languages.

This is so demeaning and offensive. Americans aren't there to shop for warm socks or flat screen TV's.

This is just the beginning of Obama's "transformed" health care in America: sit down, shut up and wait till we're damn well ready to "serve" you.

The dynamic, competitive free-market is wonderfully customer-service oriented for survival, (as much as government regulation will allow.)

The Feds have no such pressure to please. This is the DMV, writ large, destroying liberty, wealth and life.

I guarantee you when single-payer kicks in, the website will work brilliantly. All of this is by design.

What more fitting tribute to the twisted policies of this Administration could there be than that its signature program's coercive demands should focus individuals on government-sponsored insurance for their bodies at the exact period of the year when traditionally they have been invited to focus their minds and spirits on the everlasting life, peace and joy of the coming of the Savior of the world?

What a contrast!

Santa Sebellius, the gift that keeps on giving and harassing, I tell ya. Obama’s little elves from hell, so proud of making us afraid to get or deliver care.

But what do I know, Holder was proud in scaring people into using incandescent light bulbs.

and the terror abortion genocide and fear of child bearing goes on.

She wont be so full of cheer when she is locked up in a federal pen in a couple of years.

All of these apparatchiks think they have immunity from the crimes they are committing on a daily basis.

They don’t, and as soon as the Right gets hold of the DOJ these cretins are going to be made an example of the marxists won’t soon forget.

The nation is collapsing and this hatchet-faced hag makes an attempt at feeble humor.

This evil Obama administration is about as funny as a crippled child or an aborted fetus.

“hatchet-faced”
1. having a sharp, thin face with beady eyes;
2. so ugly it looks like the face caught on fire and was put out with a hatchet.
In a sentence: “Bob took his wife out back to the wood pile and used her face to split a rick of ash.”
SEE: Andrea Mitchell

(Harsh stuff, yeah I know. But I’m fed up with these plundering hacks trying to jam their hands in my back pocket, aren’t you?)

I’ve got some advice for obamacare shoppers. Wait until the big sale when prices are 75% off.

You know, they are risible, and it’s LOL for some us, get the popcorn, etc. (and I include myself in that group.)

But this is NO JOKE for some people and it’s despicable that the MSM has aided and abetted this fraud perpetrated on the American public.

And, guess what, I don’t have insurance now either, and I’d rather cut my throat in Macy’s window than go anywhere near that website.

This sibelius creature should go back under a rock. It is disgusting inside and out. Please...someone put her ugliness in shackles and in a dark, dank, dirty, damp, distant prison cell. Merry Christmas!
