Sebelius: Don't Tell Me What I Said I Would Do, I'll Tell You What I Said I Would Do... Wait, you have video?

Hey, she's a busy lady. She can't be expected to remember every little thing she says during congressional hearings. There's been so many, who can keep track of it all?
At the Oct. 30 hearing before the House Committee on Energy and Commerce , Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.) asked Seblius, “Can you provide for the committee the list of insurers in the federal exchange who do not offer, as part of their package, abortion coverage?” 
During a somewhat heated back-and-forth, Sebelius said, “I think we can do that, sir,” and added, “I know that is the plan, I will get that information to you.” 
Yet during a Dec. 11 House subcommittee hearing, Sebelius declined to say whether she would provide the list requested and instead urged lawmakers and consumers to just look at the benefits package for each plan on the Obamacare exchange websites.
So when Mother Jones likes to snark at the GOP for taking plans that covered abortions, my question is how would they have known? Even Kathy can't seem to get us that information.
