Awkward: Sebelius silent after hearing Oklahoma’s opposition to Obamacare

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stared into the camera after a KWTV anchor rattled off the most recent poll numbers from the state.

“At least check 64% Oklahomans aren’t buying into the health-care plan,” the anchor told Sebelius. “They don’t like Obamacare, and they’ve been pretty vocal about it. Now that’s going to still continue to be a tough sell, but we’ll see how that plays out over the coming months.”

Sebelius sat in silently for eight second until the anchor awkwardly spoke up.

“All right, Secretary Sebelius, thanks so much for being with us this morning,” he said. “I think we’ve probably lost sound here, or something.”

Well, I can hear you,” Sebelius replied. “Thanks for having me.”
