Have you noticed that, when administration officials are asked specific questions about Obamacare, they tend to not want to answer them directly? Usually when that happens it’s because a) they don’t know the answer, or b) they know you won’t like the answer they give, so c) they have to search for another answer, or d) not really answer the question at all.
That cycle of evasion has been happening a lot recently when the subject turns to Obamacare, especially when the questions are about whether or not the called-for health insurance exchanges under the law are going to be ready for the onslaught of Americans who must enroll in then.
During a recent House Energy and Commerce Oversight and Investigations subcommittee hearing, the top official responsible for implementing Obamacare on behalf of the administration would not answer “yes” or “no” when questioned whether the exchanges will be ready Oct. 1, when they are to go live.
Dodge, obfuscate, twist, turn and run
