[Ed. note: And how do you use a telephone? Put your lips together and bl0w.]
Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) said Tuesday that those who can’t register for federal health insurance online because of tech issues with the ObamaCare website can “use a telephone.”
Emerging from a briefing with Democrats about the problems plaguing the site, The Hill asked Clyburn if the individual mandate should be delayed so consumers aren’t penalized for not being able to access the broken website.
“Use a telephone,” he said. “We’ve been using the telephone a long time before the Internet.”
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius made a similar argument on Tuesday night in an interview with CNN.
“I think that the reality is that people … can sign up any of three ways,” she said.
AC360 host Sanjay Gupta then asked if that meant the website is “not that important.”
