The House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Health Subcommittee, led by Rep. Joseph R. Pitts (R.-Pa.), rebooted and restated its oversight of the implementation of the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act with the release of May 19 10 ignored official requests for information from President Barack Obama and his team.
Certainly, the list is an homage to the brilliant May 14 press conference held by Rep. Harold W. “Trey” Gowdy III (R.-S.C.), when he challenged reporters to answer simple questions about #Benghazi.
If anything, the last five years of the Age of Obama has been a sensory overload of scandals, debacles and crisis after crisis. It seems almost by design that the White House intends to overwhelm us to the point of eventful unintelligence.
There is no better example than how the PPACA was legislated and enacted. But, maybe Pitts and his fellow Republicans, like the full committee’s chairman Rep. Frederick S. Upton (R.-Mich.) are tired of playing Whac-A-Mole.
Putting out this list is a good first step.
