MY NAME IS JON STEWART.

MY GUEST TONIGHT, MY GUESTTONIGHT, MARK FAINARU-WADA, HE

HAS WRITTEN A BOOK THAT HASROCKED THE NFL ABOUT

CONCUSSIONS, WROTE IT WITH HISBROTHER, FABULOUS BOOK, HAPPY

HALLOWEEN. HEALTHCARE.GOV IS ONEMONTH OLD, AND LIKE

MOST ONE MONTH OLDS, IT ISJUST LYING THERE POOPING ITS

PANTS AND ANGERING ANYONE WHO IT IS NOT RELATED TO.

WELL, YESTERDAY THE HOUSE ENERGYAND COMMERCE COMMITTEE HELD THE

MUCH ANTICIPATED HEARING, WITHKATHLEEN SEBELIUS, LET'S SEE HER

TRY TO WIGGLE OUT OFACCOUNTABILITY FOR THIS MESS.

>> LET ME SAY DIRECTLY TO THEAMERICANS YOU DESERVE BETTER.

I APOLOGIZE.

I AM ACCOUNTABLE TO YOU FORFIXING THESE PROBLEMS.

>> Stewart: THAT WAS WEIRD.

I WONDER IF HER APOLOGY WILL INANY WAY AFFECT ANY CERTAIN

GRANDSTANDING TYPE CONGRESSPEOPLE WHO MIGHT HAVE PLANNED ON

SHAMING HER INTO APOLOGIZINGWITH SOME KIND OF WEIRD PROP OR

SOMETHING.

>> I CAME WITH A QUOTE FROMAMERICAN ICON.

HOLD UP A POSTER THAT SAYS IFYOU ARE HAVING A PROBLEM, IT IS

OUR PROBLEM.

AND I AM GLAD TO HEAR YOUEMBRACE

THIS PHILOSOPHY TO YOUR ACTIONSTODAY.

>> Stewart: NOW, I AM REALLYGLAD YOU EMBRACE THIS PHILOSOPHY

EVEN THOUGH I WAITED ALL NIGHTAT KINKOS AND

I PAID PRETTY GOODMONEY FOR THIS SIGN, AND JUST A

HEADS-UP, IF YOU, I GOT THIS BIGSIGN AND IT COST A LOT OF MONEY,

THAT'S ALL.

I FELT LIKE A (BLEEP) DRIVING ITON TOP OF MY CAR.

>> POOR GUY.

HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF YOU SPENTALL NIGHT PREPARING (BLEEP)

SANDWICH FOR YOURENEMIES TO EAT ONLY TO HAVE THEM

SIT DOWN AND UNWRAP THEIR OWN(BLEEP) SANDWICH.

TO EAT IN FRONT OF YOU.

SO THIS IS CONGRESS, WELL THATGUY IS STANDING WAS NOT THAT

GRAND, I AM SURE WHERE THAT CAMEFROM.

>> IS THERE ANY PENALTY TO QSSIOR CGI FOR NOT DELIVERING ON

WHAT THEY PROMISED?

>> USERS WHO TRIED TO SIGN UPAND WERE DISCOURAGED BECAUSE OF

THE PROBLEMS WHAT DO YOU PLAN TOGET THOSE FOLKS TO COME BACK?

>> DID THE CONTRACTORS DELIVERTHE SYSTEM THAT YOU CONTRACTED

THEM TO BUILD?

>> DO YOU BELIEVE THAT TWO WEEKSWAS ENOUGH TIME TO COMPLETE

TESTING OF THE ENTIRE SYSTEM?

>> Stewart: WHAT A BUNCH OF --SURPRISINGLY RELEVANT QUESTIONS.

THOSE QUESTIONS WERE ACTUALLYQUITE GOOD FROM BOTH SIDES OF

THE AISLE.
