My 2 Cents: Republicans Grill Sebelius Over Obamacare

Posted: Updated:

I doubt very seriously that it accomplished anything, but the Republicans vented plenty of anger Wednesday about Obamacare and it made for interesting theater on Capitol Hill.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius tried to take the blame for the miserable launch of the Affordable Care Act, but her reading an apology from a prepared statement fell a bit short on the sincerity scale.

And Sebelius tried to defend the administration's refusal to release any of the Obamacare sign-up numbers thus far, saying the numbers are unreliable, I paraphrase that as ‘The numbers stink and we're hoping they'll get better in the next couple of weeks.'

The Republicans, some of them, were unnecessarily rude and confrontational in their questioning. And one came across as extremely petty, trying to corner Sebelius on promising to sign up for Obamacare herself; a valid point, but he pushed too long and hard on it.

All in all, it was not flattering to either side, but then this whole process of creating and initiating Obamacare has been a particularly ugly chapter in Congressional history.
