Viral Long, Awkward Silence From Sebelius After Question on ObamaCare
In an interview with a local TV station in Oklahoma, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was asked about the unpopularity of ObamaCare
“At last check, 64 percent of Oklahomans aren’t buying into the health care plan, they don’t like Obamacare, and they’ve been pretty vocal about it,” said the KWTV reporter. “Now that’s going to be — still continue to be — a tough sell, but we’ll see how that plays out over the coming months.”
Maybe Sebelius didn't think there was a response needed because what followed was a painfully long silence. The reporter eventually stopped waiting for a reply and ended the interview, thinking the station had "lost sound."
There was no technical difficulty.
“I can hear you,” said Sebelius. “But thanks for having me.”
