U.S. Representative Pete Olson (R-TX) holds up a quote attributed to Steve Jobs as he questions Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius during a House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing about issues and complications with the Affordable Care Act enrollment website, on Capitol Hill in Washington, October 30, 2013.   REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst    (UNITED STATES - Tags: POLITICS HEALTH) - RTX14U02
It was all just for show?
The cameras were on Wednesday morning as Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius answered obnoxious questions about Obamacare from Republicans who were lined up knee-deep to get a chance to whine and moan. But what happens when the cameras aren't on?
Rep Fleming (R-LA) says "about 20 members" are in this HHS briefing on Obamacare for House Republicans
@frankthorpNBC
House Republicans demanded the same briefings that Democrats were getting from HHS about Obamacare. They got it, and no one came. Almost enough to make you think they care more about getting on TV talking about how bad they think Obamacare is than, you know, working to fix it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
