Before O-Care debacle, Sebelius made many trips to White House

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was in frequent contact with President Obama and senior White House aides before the disastrous launch of the federal ObamaCare exchange last year.

While Sebelius has said the president was not aware of’s problems, more than 750 pages of documents obtained by The Hill through a Freedom of Information Act request show she made scores of visits to the White House.

The documents reveal that Sebelius met with or attended calls and events with Obama at least 18 times between Oct. 27, 2012, and Oct. 6, 2013, including at least seven instances in which the two were scheduled to discuss the new healthcare law, according to the secretary’s draft schedules.

She had breakfast or lunch with Pete Rouse, considered one of Obama’s closest advisers, at least three times. Moreover, Sebelius had scheduled calls or meetings with Valerie Jarrett, an Obama confidante, and White House chief of staff Denis McDonough.

Sebelius also met with or had calls with Chris Jennings, then a White House senior healthcare adviser, at least seven times in the roughly yearlong period.

    Obama= see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. Democrat quips- “the president found out about it when you did, from the news media” ” Kathleen who?” ” sure we met 28 times-can’t remember what we discussed but it was not the ACA ” “we have it fixed now-its working like it is supposed to” ” we have 6 million signed up- no make that 3 million-don’t have any idea if any of them paid a premium yet but the system is working as designed” “we did this to provide insurance for the 30 million who were uninsured ” ” It is anticipated that when the ACA is fully implemented, and we have done all we can to insure people,we will have about 30 to 40 million left uninsured -but trust me its working” “in the next two months or so we hope to have 6 million insured under the ACA which is equivalent to the number of people who had insurance and lost it because of Obamacare. so we are making great progress” ” As soon as you become insured you will be free to pursue your passion” Aren’t you proud of our democrat leadership ? Good Luck America !!!

      Kind of shoots a hole in Obama’s statement that he was not aware of any problems with the website, don’t you think? Of course, I guess he could always claim they didn’t talk about it. But then that begs the question, what did they talk about?
