A Republican senator called Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius the “laughingstock of America” after she was lampooned on “Saturday Night Live.”
The sketch, which aired Saturday, poked fun at Sebelius’s attempts to downplay serious problems with ObamaCare’s enrollment website.
Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) referred to the skit Sunday during an appearance on ABC’s “This Week.”
“She’s lost considerable credibility,” Barrasso said of Sebelius. “She’s the laughingstock of America.”
Sebelius has experienced a wave of scrutiny since HealthCare.gov debuted with major problems on Oct. 1.
She has also drawn fire for certain public comments, like saying she did not know how many people had enrolled under ObamaCare during an interview with Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart.
