When he was elected in 2008, President Obama pledged that his administration would be the most transparent in American history.
That was then. This is now. From Townhall.com:
House GOP members requested a year ago that the Department of Health and Human Services provide information into how it funds ObamaCare’s Basic Health Program, a service that provides health coverage to low-income Americans. This week, HHS finally complied –with "one heavily redacted page of one document."
Republicans responded to the White House’s lame excuse for an answer with a frustrated letter to HHS Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell.
"The pattern of conduct to this point suggests that the department intends to frustrate our legitimate efforts to conduct oversight of the Basic Health Program," House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton, R-Mich., and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas, wrote.
Last year, the White House shelled out tens of millions of dollars for the Basic Health Program without congressional approval. Republicans had every right to be suspicious. Where does HHS get the authority to use IRS money to pay for the program? the legislators demanded.
The American people deserve to know the truth. Especially since we now know that even the IRS felt these subsidy payments were illegal.
We need to keep up the public pressure on the Obama administration to come clean about ObamaCare. And that means we need to make sure everyone is aware of how Congress is being stonewalled in their search for the truth.
