Television host Pat Sajaktook to Twitter Wednesday afternoon to poke fun at Obamacare, saying that he’s considering a few rule changes at “Wheel of Fortune” to keep in line with the new law.

“Considering rule change for Wheel: If you like your vowels, you can keep your vowels,” he joked.

“A lot of confusion regarding new vowel policy. Guidelines are being written and will be posted online by November 31,” he added.

“Vowel Clarification: Ys will be covered if they meet minimum standards found in section XIV of guidelines,” the host continued. “Further clarification: Prices for vowels will go up for some, and you may be directed to other vowels. (Section XXVII.)”

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told Congress Wednesday that she is responsible for the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, but ultimately admitted after prodding by Rep. Greg Harper that the president is in charge of all government-run programs.

“I think it’s great that you’re a team player and taking responsibility,” said Mr. Harper, Michigan Republican. “It is the president’s ultimate responsibility, correct?”

“You clearly — whatever,” Mrs. Sebelius said. “Yes, he is the president. He is responsible for government programs.”

Mr. Sajak, and many other Twitter users, jumped on her “whatever” comment, and a new hashtag was born.

“Tired of all the questions. Everything will be clear when you read the guidelines. #Whatever!” the “Wheel” host wrote.
