You know the line…”what you don’t know can’t hurt you…it will kill you”? Welcome to Obamacare. We don’t know much about Obamacare other than it’s costing taxpayers a lot of money and no one is an expert on it. How can you be? Obama’s administration keeps hiding the real truth and data.
Federal health officials refuse to give Congress hundreds of subpoenaed documents on Obamacare’s failed co-ops so that people will continue enrolling in the deeply troubled program, a congressional leader said Tuesday.
Twelve of the 23 co-ops created in 2011 under Obamacare at a cost of $2.4 billion have failed, and another eight of the remaining 11 are likely to go under this year. But the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) won’t hand over documents subpoenaed months ago by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz, who chairs the House oversight committee, thinks HHS officials are purposely keeping potential co-op customers in the dark as long as possible.
“Health and Human Services has not provided any valid legal reason for withholding information from this committee,” Chaffetz said during a Tuesday hearing on federal agencies’ failures to comply with congressional document requests. “Rather, they assert that if certain information was released publicly, it could cause consumers to think twice before enrolling in CO-OP insurance plans.”
The co-ops have already cost taxpayers billions, leaving many enrollees “scrambling” to find new health insurance, he added. More than 800,000 customers have lost coverage through the failures nationwide, and many more are expected to lose coverage in 2016.
Federal health officials are also denying medical reimbursements to doctors and hospitals that have served patients insured by failed co-ops, a DCNF investigation found.
So, what else is new? Obama is on a spending craze. His master plan to destroy America seems to be working – flood the system with more illegal immigrants, make more Americans dependent on government healthcare, waste billions of taxpayer dollars to support a system that doesn’t work, and get all these illegals to vote for Hillary. Seems things are moving along just fine on his end. What else did you expect from a “Hope and Change” community organizer who hates America?
Still need healthcare…better act quickly! What a scam!
