"Will you tell, if your advisors are wrong and it is possible for you -- I'm not saying it is -- but if it's possible for you to forego your government program you have now, will you tell the American public that 'Yes, I will go into the exchanges next year like everyone else?'" Long asked.

The Missouri Republican then talked over Sebelius as she tried to explain why she didn't believe it would be prudent for her to access the Obamacare marketplace, pressing "You're the architect of the whole program and you won't go into it with the rest of the American public?"

After an interjection from Rep. Harry Waxman (D-CA), Sebelius was heard on her mic saying "don't do this to me."
