Investigating Obamacare Waiver-mania

The House GOP is stepping up to the plate. Newcomers on the congressional oversight subcommittee on health will probe the who, what, when, where, and why of the Obama administration’s HHS Obamacare waiver program.

The Hill reports:

“If there are exemptions,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) told The Hill, “what was the process by which those exemptions were sought and given?”

“I think those are fair questions to ask,” he said, “and I expect we will.”

Gowdy, a freshman and former prosecutor, got the chairmanship on Tuesday. The health subcommittee has jurisdiction over federal health policy and food and drug safety, in addition to the District of Columbia and federal records.

Gowdy said he met with Oversight Committee staff Wednesday and immediately began planning future hearings.

On a second front, the Energy and Commerce Committee is leaning on HHS to “provide a list of every individual, organization, business, state or other entity that requested a waiver, obtained a waiver, or has been denied a waiver for any part of the reform law.”

Let the era of real transparency begin.
