Sebelius: No more ObamaCare delays
Published December 31, 2013 FoxNews.com
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, on the eve of the ObamaCare launch, told Fox News she doesn't anticipate any more delays for the health care law.
The secretary voiced confidence in the law as her department announced what it claimed was a "surge" in enrollment. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said Tuesday that more than 2.1 million people have enrolled through the federal- and state-run marketplaces.
"I'm thrilled that we're going to have millions of people for the first time that have health security, and it should be a great New Year for lots of families across America," Sebelius told Fox News in an exclusive interview, as she left a downtown D.C. restaurant Tuesday afternoon.
Sebelius acknowledged there could continue to be hiccups going into 2014. "There always are," she said. "People change plans every year."
But she predicted a relatively smooth transition and said she doesn't see more delays in the future.
The administration, though, has announced a string of delays and exemptions over the last several weeks. Among the changes, the administration recently announced it would let people whose health care policies were canceled under ObamaCare buy bare-bones "catastrophic coverage" plans which would have otherwise been unavailable.

Dee loooozhun ehl.....
She’s thrilled that they have stopped the information leaks, buttoned down the numbers . All is well in liberal paradise.
Enjoy all the litigation over the delays to date, Cruella.
It was supposed to be 7 Mil....and 6 mil have actually lost their insurance which means less people have insurance then before this idiotic program began.
Syphillius, what a piece of work.
She’s gonna look good in a one piece orange jump suite.
What did I hear about eleven or so demoKaRATZ congresscritters trying to garner up support for legislation that REMOVES the “death penalty” for convictions of TREASON?
I’ll find the story, its under the radar, but true.
Have no sympathy or love for this baby-killing marxist *itch.
That story has been posted a few times on FR..
I predict no one will get an orange jump suit out of this.
Hey Sebelius if you like your delays you can keep your delays
Question is...how many of those who lost policies have bought new ones?
Even if it’s 2.1 million (which I doubt) - how many were Medicare and how many Obamacare? Last I heard, it was about 70% Medicare, which is gov’t-paid. Not that these commies give a rip....
My New Years resolution is not to say “I toldya so” when the major stuff hits the fan in January. Not out of any respect for Sebelius et al, but because her incompetence will be hurting real people and families who did nothing to deserve it.
Same here. She’s your typical leftist toadie.
Most of these people already had health insurance.
That’s right. No more delays.
Unless we decide otherwise. So go F yourselves.
She needs a date with a rope and a lamp post.
Her surge in enrollment talk is pure horse manure. People who were already on medicaid or Medicare were already in the federal system. That means that this just amounts to them transferring them into their healthcare.gov system. This so-called “surge” does not include people who’s policies were cancelled.
The sad note is that I know you are probably correct.
But HEY! I can still DREAM can’t I??
What’s wrong with a little FANTASY?
And besides, one never knows what the heck God will do. God has this habit of flying in, messing you clean up, and flying out again.
One can hope and dream, can’t one?
LOL, Happy New Year FRiend.
This bitch needs to be eviscerated in the story of American history. How anyone, including this dike, can run anything dealing with health care after advocating the death of innocent babies as they are born is beyond me. Obama and his ilk have no moral high ground. We need to destroy these people. So who is going to step up? The Speaker of the House? The Senate Minority Leader? Those are rhetorical questions.
so speaketh cruella deville...
All the parties involved in this attempted theft due to deflation, are going to find out that the consequences will be big contraction in buying and selling will backfire and choke their own revenue, taxes, “services”, financial scams.
“Bridges for Sale...Get your Bridges here...”
“so speaketh cruella deville...”
Sebelius retires before the spring
This hideous ol witch will say anything. Lies are irrelevant to her. Lying to the outside_the_beltway rubes is a way of life for her and the other ObunguAdmin reptiles
Running like a 72 Boss Mustang all tuned up.
Except for the payment system, the deductibles, the absence of participating docs or hospitals, the rationing, the death panels,....
Perfect graphic to sum up this entire fuster cluck.
She said it so we know it is a lie. Of course there will be more delays before the 2014 elections. LOL
You mean Medicaid. Medicare is old folks.
I'd bet my next paycheck this is the number that applied online, not the number of people that actually paid the premium. Can't wait to see what the percentage is who actually pay...
“”Last I heard, it was about 70% Medicare””
I’m sure you meant Medicaid. Some progress!! Another thread tonight spoke about the three tier system we’ll be having...Some people sure have a weird interpretation of improvement of a program. Ruin it for 85% of the population as long as the 15% who have always felt left out get taken care of....
Two legs BAD!
Four legs BETTER!
Four legs GOOD!
Two legs BETTER!!!
“bleating sheep” Four legs good, two legs better!!!
If you know what you know then you know what I mean, then you know what I know and you know what I mean! Shove me in that shallow water before I get too deep.....
OOHH, Don’t let me get TOO DEEP!! DON’T LET ME GET TOO DEEP!!
LOL, only a few will ever understand this post. And they will be the Chosen Few.
This will not end well.
This will let Kim Jong Zero get down to his selective punishment of Republicans who doid not comply. The real reason I think this abomination was passed.
There is a special place in hell for this woman.
Sebaciocyst would fit in well on the year-end overnight talk circuit with all those other "successful" prognosticators you'll hear from ...
Doubling down on stupid.
2.1? Just the other day, it was 1.3 - seriously doubt this number [seriously doubt 1.3 too] ...
5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
Ever notice the parallel between the "thousands of pages of obamacare that noone read (but had to pass it to know what was in it)" and the "whoso readeth, let him understand" WRT the obam... abomination of desolation?
1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
Flee fornication indeed. Obamacare is penetration by beast.gov.
Since it changes every day, how can anybody define it or keep score? The 15,000 new attorneys and accountants the IRS hired for this aren’t nearly enough...Obamacare has become the amoeba that engulfed the healthcare industry.
To use the official insurance industry definition, "enrolled" means all paper work completed and approved and the first month's premium has been paid.
I doubt that's what Kathy meant.
It is amazing how these people think they live in a world where their crap doesn’t stink.
No more delays means it could fail before the election :)
