Her disastrous appearance today she had alive Mike episode written with the today which is never a good thing. I she missed stated that the health care law that she's responsible for administering your member. The other day she was at this community health center in Austin it was on Friday. And she said -- is trying to battle the problems -- website and she said. Well in an ideal world there would have been a lot more testing but we did not have the luxury of that and the loss said. The -- time was October 1. That that's not right. And the decision on the window launched the sign up web site was hers it's this and Obama care. The long imposed no legal requirement to open the website October 1 the law says. And as determined by the secretary. But of course you know -- The White House and arrest him wanted to push it out as a radio only Manuel as -- Yeah in a few problems few bugs in the system that's normal ago enrolled a baby. So. You could say she misspoke. Could say she allied. Now and probably -- accurate. As well. So all so who's gonna take the blame for this is -- going to be the White House is going to be Obama. The other legislation is after all carrying his name him. Now obamacare noticed how everybody nowadays not in -- media referring to what is the Affordable Care Act all of a sudden. Mean even Obama has referred to in his obamacare -- in mind it. Of course that was before you know it turned out to be the Hindenburg coming in for a landing speaking of New Jersey. And though so we'll see they're they're trying to find. -- as many places in the Canon and Sebelius of searching around for some today as well will will hear from her as we proceed along and also in this hour don't forget.

You know why the more you listen the Smart you'll get precisely correct. -- Well I have no complaints from. Welcome back 26 after three he -- night program. Low clouds tanks and backgrounds. -- -- -- And no doubt that's what then members of congress are hoping to get some. Today from HHS. Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. I promised a little bit. How the any audio. From her appearance today on the hill which -- many are describing as a public relations nightmare area a disaster. During the hearing. She should take responsibility for the problems with the rollout. And and made this play to America. We knew that in any big new complicated system. There would be problems no one ever imagined the volume of issues and problems that we had and we must fix it. While leads to the obvious question why didn't. Anybody. See this this nightmare coming. And she said she approved the launch date based on the information she got from the contractors. CMS team. Felt we were ready to go I told the president that we were ready to go clearly. I was wrong clearly we were wrong. So. She actually said that. Told the committee that after meeting with a contractors. No none contractors and we're not ready to go here. I was always advise that. There is always a risk with the new product in a new site. But never suggested that we delayed the launch of October 1 nor did -- contacting partners ever suggest that to us. Well it day got a a bit heated. Now wait Iran she was asked about an ad campaign. Committee member record Gardner. Now pushed ms. civilians for an explanation about there's and campaign for obamacare in his home state of Colorado. I don't know if you've seen it or not. But it involves some college age young guys and -- Yes event that's right. King. Do you agree with this kind of advertising -- obamacare I can't CNN again it's a college student doing a keg stand. At the Colorado exchanged did that you're a parent of this -- advertise marketplace do you approve of this kind of that I -- To. It was it was interesting stuff. And she. She also at one point said and I'm quoting here. -- wish this was in response to other committee chairman Fred Upton who's a Republican from Michigan who by the way got right to the point today. Declaring the Obama web obamacare website is still not working. Ms. Sebelius said quote it is the Verizon server. That fail. Not healthcare dot go. And she said. Well I wasn't involved in the design of the website. And telling you this sounds like well. -- -- Rated an angry as anyone. They know what Obama said nobody's matter than me. As if you know he some third party. Unrelated. To this the healthcare dot gov disaster. In no king clueless the first. Sargent Schultz from Hogan's final -- and when I was angry at anyone. About it. She said does this aid that is insurers are not getting reliable data. All the way through the system the system isn't functionings or not getting that reliable data insurers who I met with said that the case. Well no woman imagine all the problems we had. But an extensive assessment. Shows a website it is fixable. And do we know how many people -- no way we have no idea how many people signed up for obamacare. Because according to the secretary those numbers are. Unreliable. Similar to other web site itself. And in the whole obamacare boondoggle. 331 time revenues take a break for that right back on the other side Bobby -- show. Wednesday -- why the local on WORD. 106. Thanks -- that you're welcome back. 336. Now 44 before 4 o'clock. Wine and I'm in the background. The movie music. Title theme from two live and die in -- way. Now they were referring by they I mean even me and mainstream liberal media. Referring to I can't. -- of aliases testimony on the hill today her being called for congressional committees as the start of the death watch. Which is what the media was server when somebody is is on life support. And as a -- canned. They and I like to refer to and is being out on the death watch. The secretary today said don't worry here we made an extensive assessment. And that shows a web site is fixable and that it now has fewer error messages and timeouts. Unfortunately all the error message at the time outs came during her testimony today. -- she did backtracked she was really grilled. There's a congresswoman Marsha Blackburn. Is a Republican from Tennessee. Is that I'm not pointing fingers at Verizon she she was grilled by this -- -- congresswoman civilians and I'm not pointing fingers at Verizon. Not after just pointing fingers at Verizon that we own the web site and Blackburn -- who's running the web site. When now Sebelius replied with a name of a subordinate. A Blackburn asking that person was responsible for the failure of the web site. And civilian said no hold me accountable for the debacle I'm responsible in fact. Not evidence has now come out indicating the Obama administration turned down on. Offers from Amazon. And Microsoft. To help fix. The screwed up web site. Documents released yesterday by the house oversight and Government Reform Committee showed two senior officials at HHS. Turned down an offer of help. From Amazon Web Services Microsoft also offered. Technical expertise and assistance the company did not say whether the administration responded to the offer but it did say they haven't given. India assistants. -- I said the congressman from California is the chairman of that committee sent last week. That eight technology companies and asked -- he said he wrote a letter to eight technology companies asking if they had been asked for help and got a response back from some. Blackburn. Also zero in on the problem with the potential. The one and has the potential absolutely dwarf. What's going on now be millions of Americans losing. Their health care coverage because of obamacare she referred to the report that we told you about yesterday. The -- NBC news first put up on their website and then buried the salient paragraph from the the administration is known for three years. That millions of Americans would not be able to keep their health plans under obamacare despite. Repeated assurances by the president to the contrary. Some really has responded by citing a provision. That if the plan was in place in 2010. And did not impose additional burdens a consumer can keep it. And then chairman Fred Upton responded why not let the consumers decide. And she dodged the question saying well semis manga policy today they'll have consumer protections for the first time -- What what civilians and and Obama and -- custom don't want want to know what Limbaugh referenced this earlier. If you had a policy of the time obamacare went into effect and then any changes were made in that policy. Let's say you moved forests into your home address changed that's considered a change in the policy and so it's it's no longer any good. Each. These these guys and so disingenuous just -- on both sides of their -- 348. Twenty minutes now before four. Yes. Jay Ferguson in under. Welcome -- quarter before 4 o'clock.
