ORLANDO, Fla. U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said not enough of central Floridians are signed up for health care, and she's blaming state lawmakers.
A YouTube video featuring Orlando resident Ali Kurnaz is part of the latest push to get uninsured Floridians to sign up for affordable health care.
"I'm glad I can share my story about the Affordable Care Act," Kurnaz said at a news conference Monday. "I've benefitted a lot from it. My whole family has."
But despite the outcome for Kurnaz, Sebelius said there's a lot of work to do in Florida, where 3.5 million people are still uninsured.
Channel 9 asked her to compare our state to others that, unlike Florida, created their own insurance exchanges.

Since when it is the responsibility of local lawmakers to sell the Sebelius’ sh*t sandwich?
“Ali”...so they’re in Florida too?
Heck, I signed my dog up for Armed Forces solicitations in 1982. I kept getting junk mail for him until 1995. I didn't have the heart to tell the navy or the life isurance sales flyers that my dog passed away in 1990.
Maybe those "3.5 million" can't afford obammycare....

Oops. In a hurry :)
Orlando is a tough sell. The area has distinct communities and languages drawn from countries around the world. Dining, retail, tourism, and construction offer a large pool of part time and off the books jobs, and many residents have dodgy immigration status that makes them unwilling to sign up for anything, even a library card. Ten years from now, the Orlando area will still have a large pool of people without health insurance.
I knew it! I FREAKING knew it! It just never amazes me. There’s always a backstory behind the “unknown” that the Dems mysteriously find.
