As the Obama administration continues to stonewall Congress over information regarding the disastrous Obamacare roll-out, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa and other lawmakers are reportedly readying subpoenas for the contractors used to build heathcare.gov.
House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and other GOP committee leaders sent letters to 11 of the largest recipients of contracts to design and implement HealthCare.gov seeking an explanation of the contracts awarded, communications between the companies and the White House and a detailed list of all meetings related to the launch of ObamaCare.
The lawmakers said the committee would consider using "compulsory process" if the companies did not respond to the request for information by 5 p.m. on Friday.
"It is crucial that you provide information quickly because of the serious concerns about data security related to the lack of testing," the lawmakers wrote, referring to reports that the federal health care website went through little, if any, testing.
Yesterday contractors used for the $600 million Obamacare website pointed fingers directly at the Obama administration for roll-out failures and tech complications. Under oath, contractors stated they asked for more time to finish the site. That request was denied.
