During an appearance on a local Oklahoma television station, Health and Human Services Sec. Kathleen Sebelius was left quite literally speechless when presented with criticisms of Obamacare.

“At last check, 64 percent of Oklahomans aren’t buying into the health-care plan — they don’t like Obamacare and they have been pretty vocal about it. 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,” Oklahoma’s News 9 anchor Stan Miller said.

Sebelius did not respond, instead staring blankly into the camera for about six seconds without saying a word.

Then Miller questioned if the audio had gone out on her end.

“I can hear you, but I — thanks for having me,” she said.

Monday is the purported deadline to enroll in Obamacare.
