HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius appeared on HuffPost Live this morning. The deadline day to sign up for Obamacare at Healthcare.gov is today – the website was already down once this morning. Sebelius responded to Senator Barrosso’s claim that White House is ‘cooking the books’ on the six million enrollment estimate.
On Barrasso’s claim:
Sebelius: “I think it’s unfortunate that people who are not very enthusiastic about having the law work…are now suggesting that the enormous interest in enrolling in healthcare is not existing. It does exist. We passed the six million mark, last week, of individuals who enrolled… Senator Barrasso should rest assured that his constituents finally will have real health insurance for their premium dollars.”
