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.

I'll give it six weeks before the next delay is announced.
I'm being very generous IMO.

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.

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.

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.

Two million signed up with who knows how many sent straight to Medicaid and won't pay zip for their insurance. Over six million have lost their insurance. My calculator calls this a minus 4 million. Yet Sebelius calls this a “surge” in “health security”. Yup, she's been drinking alright.

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.

“Even if it’s 2.1 million (which I doubt)”

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....

No more delays. An apocalyptic tone for the obamacare obamaincarnation of desolation.

Revelation 10

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.

The secretary voiced confidence in the law as her department announced what it claimed was a "surge" in enrollment.

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.
