Washington, DC, Oct 30, 2013 | Laura Strange (202-225-6405) | comments

Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green), a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, today questioned Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on the Obamacare website failures and whether or not the Administration properly tested the website prior to its launch. Congressman Latta released the following statement after the hearing:

“Last week we heard the contractors who built the site say they warned the Administration of complications and that the final, end-to-end testing of the Obamacare website was the Administration’s responsibility; however at today’s hearing with Secretary Sebelius we saw more finger pointing than concrete answers. Broken promises and the lack of transparency and accountability continue to be running themes with the botched rollout of Obamacare. Many hardworking taxpayers in my district have shared their questions and concerns with both Obamacare and the webite, and until the Administration can relieve those concerns, it is only fair that the enrollment and penalties as required by Obamacare be delayed.”
