WATCH A TOP OBAMACARE OFFICIAL DELIVER THE SAME ANSWER 8 TIMES IN 5 MINUTES

Medicare chief Marilyn Tavenner delivered the same answer to a question eight times during a Congressional hearing Tuesday and claimed that even she does not have numbers yet on how many people have successfully enrolled in President Barack Obama’s signature health care program.

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.) acknowledged the Medicare and Medicaid administrator was unable to release the enrollment numbers to the public, but repeatedly grilled her asking if she was personally aware of how many people have enrolled.

“Do you not know, do you not have any idea on how many people enrolled?” Camp asked, later adding, “are you getting those numbers?”

“Am I getting those numbers? Not yet,” Tavenner answered.

“You have no numbers on who’s enrolled?” Camp pressed. “So you have no idea?”

“We will have those numbers in mid-November,” the Medicare Chief replied, repeating that answer seven more times during her exchange with Camp.


The House Ways & Means Committee Chair reiterated his question one last time.

“I understand you aren’t publicly releasing those numbers,” Camp said. “But I am asking, do you have any idea on a weekly basis how many people enroll? I mean, how do you not know how many people have enrolled?”

“Chairman Camp, we will have those numbers in mid-November,” Tavenner replied.

Tavenner is the senior administration official closes to the implementation of Obama’s landmark health care program.

At the start of her testimony, she also apologized for the glitches that have riddled the healthcare.gov website.

“To the millions of Americans who’ve attempted to use HealthCare.gov to shop and enroll in health-care coverage, I want to apologize to you that the website has not worked as well as it should,” the Medicare chief said. “We know how desperately you need affordable coverage.”

Instead of grandstanding, they need to ask straight forward questions and demand the same kind of answer. This bs is a waste of time, if any sort of answer and non answer is allowable.

The numbers must be very bad.

  • “It’s easier to fool people than to convince them
It kind of reminds me of Susan Rice and Jay Carney on Benghazi. :tongue2:
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
