The Number Of Meetings Between Sebelius and Obama Since Obamacare Was Passed: One

With the complete collapse of the Obamacare website, millions losing their insurance, and rising premiums, you would expect there to be a lot of one-on-one meetings between the president and the HHS Secretary. : Nope. : They’ve only had ONE meeting since Obama’s signature domestic achievement was passed in 2010.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis finds that from July 12, 2010, to Nov. 30, 2013, the president’s public schedule records zero one-on-one meetings between Obama and Sebelius. Equally shocking, over the same period, the president’s calendar: lists 277 private meetings with his other Cabinet secretaries: (excluding full Cabinet meetings).

Given these startling findings, and the fact that the White House calendar did not reflect meetings prior to July 12, 2010, GAI researchers then performed a second analysis using another respected recorder of presidential activity, the POLITICO presidential calendar. The results: Just one April 21, 2010 entry was found listing a White House meeting between Obama and Sebelius–and even that was a joint meeting with then Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner…

To be sure, presidents exchange emails and phone calls that are not recorded on White House calendars. Still, why would the White House calendar list by name one-on-one meetings with 16 other Cabinet secretaries but omit Sebelius if other meetings with her occurred? Wouldn’t Obama want to catalog for all to see his personal devotion to the law that bears his name?

Ok, I might have exaggerated a bit. : Technically, the number of one-on-one meetings Obama had with Sebelius is really ZERO.
