Sebelius To Face Tough Questioning From Republicans On Health Law

Associated Press
Published: 27 October 2013 06:46 PM

WASHINGTON — Republicans said Sunday they intend to press Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on the Obama administration’s troubled launch of healthcare.gov, the online portal to buy insurance, and concerns about the privacy of information that applicants submit under the new system.

Meanwhile, the healthcare.gov application and enrollment system was down Sunday afternoon because the company that hosts the site had an Internet outage. HHS spokeswoman Joanne Peters wrote on Twitter that Terremark, the hosting company, was “working to fix ASAP.”

The Obama administration will face intense pressure next week to be more forthcoming about how many people have actually succeeded in enrolling for coverage in the new insurance markets. Medicare chief Marilyn Tavenner is to testify during a House hearing Tuesday, followed Wednesday by Sebelius before the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The officials will also be grilled on how such crippling technical problems could have gone undetected prior to the website’s Oct. 1 launch.

“The incompetence in building this website is staggering,” said Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., the second ranking Republican on the panel and an opponent of the law.

5. Hey Marsha, yeah you...

Maybe we should investigate the incompetence of your party. You know the ones I mean, the baggers and the rag tag GOP. Every single one of you should be investigated and thrown out on the street.

YOUR INCOMPETENCE in passing a jobs bill is staggering. You love your party more than you love this country. You are the party of imbeciles! So stop hurting America.

STFU and please go quietly into the night.

GOTV 2014!

6. Marsha "Empty Envelope" Blackburn is an expert on staggering incompetence.

Props to CNN's Carol Costello for holding her feet to the fire on Blackburn's allegations of HIPPAA non-compliance, while Blackburn blathers on like Miss Teen South Carolina.
