A local Oklahoma News 9 reporter’s interview with Kathleen Sebelius ended sooner than expected when he told the Health and Human Services Secretary how unhappy people in his state were with 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,” the reporter said. “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.”
After waiting several seconds for a response he tried to explain away the dead air time:
“Alright, Secretary Sebelius, thank you so much for being with us this morning. I think we’ve probably lost sound here or something.”
But that wasn’t the case. “I can hear you,” Sebelius said, and she thanked him for having her.
