HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was in Miami, Florida, updating Floridians on the recent fixes to the disastrous Affordable Healthcare Act website roll out of last month. Before he address reporters at the North Shore Medical Center, Sebelius took time to speak to three “navigators,” who were conveniently assisting (staged) a few potential enrollees to Obamacare plan.
