Sebelius Gets Subpoenaed





Darrell Issa SC

Despite her best efforts to deflect questions earlier this week during a congressional hearing, Kathleen Sebelius is still in the hot seat regarding her role in the disastrous ObamaCare website roll out.

U.S. House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa issued a subpoena demanding that the Health and Human Services secretary release a number of documents relating to the healthcare.org debacle.

“The American people deserve to know why the administration spent significant taxpayer money on a product that is entirely dysfunctional and puts their personal information at risk,” he explained, describing Sebelius’ prior stonewalling as “completely unacceptable.”

Issa’s move comes just days after he subpoenaed a major contractor involved in the site’s development.

Issa, along with fellow Republicans on the committee, join millions of Americans in demanding answers and accountability for the glitch-ridden enrollment system. In addition to details about the site’s initial development and preliminary testing, they are also seeking specifics regarding the actual number of people who have enrolled using the the online resource.

HHS spokesperson Joanne Peters said the agency is “working diligently to satisfy [the committee's] interest,” noting that a prior “timeline was not feasible given the vast scope of their requests.”

Considering the administration has been forced to push back the ObamaCare enrollment period, the department certainly knows about unfeasible timelines. When working on a multi-million dollar website to implement the most overarching healthcare law in the nation’s history, however, one rightly expects that those responsible would have their ducks in a row.

Unfortunately, when referring to the bloated, inefficient federal government, such expectations are notoriously fruitless.

    GOP should advertise world wide for the best hackers to corrupt the system, well maybe not, I can not get to the profile page!!! Americans polled 68% unfavorable to Obamacare before 10/1/13! Hope that number stays the same, and with hackers having access to ID theft, more will turn away!!!
