After weeks of embarrassing failures and an outrageous lack of transparency, the Obama Administration is finally going to brief Congress on the unfolding ObamaCare disaster. Congressional Democrats, that is. It’s a purely partisan meeting from which Republicans have been excluded, as reported by Politico:
Mike Hash, who leads the HHS Office of Health Reform, is scheduled to brief Democrats on implementation of the law at the Democrats’ weekly caucus meeting.
Upon hearing the news, Republicans requested a similar briefing with Obama administration officials.
“Far too much information about Obamacare’s rollout is being concealed from the public,” said Brendan Buck, a spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, who chided Democrats for not including Republicans. “This snub is all the more offensive after Secretary Sebelius declined to testify at a House hearing this week. It’s time for the Obama administration to honor its promises of transparency and face some accountability.”
