Just Democrats mind you. No Republicans allowed – because — no doubt fear of, “political blowbacK” and “emboldening Republican critics.” You know – the whole reason the Regime refused to delay implementation of their horribly botched ObamaCrash site in the first place.
Mike Hash, who directs the Office of Health reform at the Department of Health and Human Services, will brief House Democrats Wednesday about implementation of the Affordable Care Act.
The closed-door session, which will start at 8:50 a.m., marks the first time the administration will have briefed members of Congress on the online enrollment system since its troubled rollout on Oct. 1.
This is how paranoid, despotic leaders of banana republics operate, and House Speaker Boehner isn’t amused.
The office of House Speaker John Boehner is calling for the Obama administration to brief House Republicans on the problems with the ObamaCare website, following a report that House Democrats will get a closed-door briefing on Wednesday.
Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck said in a statement to Fox News the speaker’s office has requested the meeting with the president but has not yet received a reply, saying “all members – as well as the American people – deserve answers for this debacle.”
“This snub is all the more offensive after Secretary Sebelius declined to testify at a House hearing this week,” Buck said. “It’s time for the Obama administration to honor its promises of transparency and face some accountability.”
And Tuesday, Congressman Paul Ryan sent Kathleen Sebelius an angry letter blasting her for her lack of transparency. Politico obtained a copy of the letter ahead of its scheduled Wednesday release.
House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) says Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has stonewalled his committee and the public on Obamacare.
Ryan says the secretary has refused repeated requests for information on implementation of the health law and invitations to testify in front of his committee.
“Your continued silence on these important inquiries after refusing to testify raises serious questions about the administration’s commitment to transparency and accountability” Ryan wrote in the letter.
Ryan plans to release a series of letters, going back to Aug. 15, that he says shows a pattern of refusal to testify in front of the House Budget Committee on the health law. Ryan, who strongly opposes Obamacare and says Sebelius should resign over the HealthCare.gov problems, says he wants to know the costs of the recently announced “tech surge” to repair the site. He’s also interested in the cost and management of the federal tax subsidies.
More evidence that this thing was nowhere near ready to launch….
At the Independent Sentinel Sara Noble writes, Doctors Weren’t Even Asked to Join the Exchanges!
The Obamacare planners haven’t included doctors in the planning of the exchanges. Doctors have no idea what is going on, at least not in New York.
The government has put all their efforts into the website (that’s scary) and they forgot to talk to doctors.
If you go to 02:00 on the video below you will hear some shocking information – doctors were not told anything about the exchanges nor have they been approached about being on the exchanges.
President Obama and his henchmen have savagely attacked the Tea Party, with the president himself branding his opponents as “extremists” and his surrogates comparing them to terrorists, for starters.
Well thank God this president’s “open minded” worldview stops at the Tea Party’s door.
If any Obama officials or their allies are reading, let me introduce to one these terrorists, a woman named Georgina. As you will be able to discern, she’s a dangerous radical, drunk with hatred, desperate to destroy the nation’s credit rating, and dying to stick it to Obama.
I think this should confirm your suspicions that you are nobly combating a dangerous element. If you have some jackboots and truncheons at the ready, please don them, because Georgina must be stopped.
Healthcare.gov features a tool to search through health insurance providers in your area to see how much Obamacare can save you. The catch? The catch is, those prices are all AFTER maximum subsidies are calculated into the price by the website.
This is apparently the lack of insecurity you can expect from the folks at HHS and healthcare.gov. A level of incompetence and lack of common sense programming I didn’t even think were possible for government until today.
The same glitch which previously exposed the prices of Obamacare plans without subsidies now also exposes the names, business addresses and business phone numbers of all Healthcare navigators nationwide.
