Ways and Means issues subpoena for Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius


Ways and Means issues subpoena for Sebelius

The House Ways and Means Committee has subpoenaed Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, demanding that she reveal details of how the agency is promoting the health reform law, according to the committee.

The election may have iced efforts to repeal the law on the whole, but House Republicans are indicating they’re full speed ahead on intense oversight of how the Obama administration is enacting the legislation.

The subpoena demands that Sebelius turn over documents about how taxpayer dollars are being used to promote the law through public relations, advertising and message testing. The committee is asking for all documents covering the period from January 2008 to now.

It comes from committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.) and Oversight Subcommittee Chairman Charles Boustany (R-La.), who is facing a runoff election next month.

5. I know, right?

Just think of all of the lives and money that we might have saved. Thank goodness we got plenty of hearings from the then-Republican-controlled Congress on the postal service and diploma mills during that time period.

4. The GOP is becoming increasingly obnoxious

they can't get their way on their merits, so they're busy just trying to nibble everything they can to death..........

Ambassador Londo Mollari: But this - this, this, this is like being nibbled to death by... what are those Earth creatures called? Feathers, long bill, webbed feet... go 'quack'...
Ambassador Vir Cotto: Cats.
Ambassador Londo Mollari: Cats. Being nibbled to death by cats.
