Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) labeled a 'Congresswoman' on HouseDems YouTube page

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) is calling ObamaCare a “smashing success” and says Republicans that can’t accept that are “afflicted by denial syndrome.” Meanwhile, HouseDems, the Official YouTube page of House Democrats, is calling him a "Congresswoman."

“The Earth is round, climate change is real and the Affordable Care Act is a smashing success. These are the facts that can no longer be avoided by our Republican colleagues here on Capitol Hill, many who are afflicted by denial syndrome,” Rep. Jeffries said during a press conference held by House Democrats on April 2, 2014.

The HouseDems YouTube page has titled video for the conference  “House Democrats Discuss Robust Enrollment of 7 Million Americans Thanks to the Affordable Care Act.”

The 7.1 million enrollment number for ObamaCare that Rep. Jeffries was celebrating is being questioned by some, especially after the release of results from a recent Gallup survey.

The HouseDems YouTube page also has recognized Rep. Jeffries as “Congresswoman Hakeem Jeffries” from the time it was posted to the time of this blog post six days later.

Could this indicate a problem with "facts" for HouseDems? Or, perhaps, even “denial syndrome?”
