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.
