On March 31, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was on a local Oklahoma news show talking health care.

News anchor Stan Miller tells Sebelius that people in his state aren't buying into Obamacare:

"Yeah, but at least -- at last check, 64 percent of Oklahomans aren't buying into the health care plan. They don't like ObamaCare and they've been pretty vocal about it. Now, that's going to still continue to be a tough sell. But we'll see how that plays out over the coming months."

The HHS Secretary just completely goes silent, which Miller suggests might be due to having "lost sound" - but, Sebelius sets him straight.

Miller: "All right, Secretary Sebelius, thank you so much for being with us this morning. I think we've probably lost sound here or something."

Sebelius: "I can hear you, but I -- thanks for having me."

Sebelius says she can hear Miller, but, her blank expression during the pause suggests otherwise.
