The one-man "scandal" factory.

 

While the Republicans are warming up their attacks on sick people for the next round of Obamacare fights, they're not going to let Benghazi HealthCare.gov just go. So this week, you'll see more hypocritical pretending that they care that people are having problems navigating the website Republicans want to abolish to obtain the health insurance Republicans don't think they should have.

Sebelius' planned Wednesday appearance has done little to satisfy the Republican appetite for information. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and Sen. Lamar Alexander, the ranking member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee are threatening to issue subpoenas for information they requested Sebelius and HHS if they don't get a response by 5 p.m. Monday. [...]

 

"We're looking for quick answers so that we can on behalf of the American people straighten out as much as can be straightened out that's above the water—which is the website—and the 90 percent that's below the water like an iceberg that are the other problems in Obamacare," said Issa on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday.

They also want you to think they care about your privacy and how your tax dollars are being spent.

 

And, yes, it's pretty much all bullshit. They aren't doing this on "behalf of the American people." If they were, they would have given up Obamacare repeal after the first dozen votes (just to pick a random number from 40+ votes they've taken) and maybe actually would have started work with Democrats to make the law work better.

 

They'd just as soon the website didn't work, never ever works. Because if people get health insurance through the exchanges, and if it's generous, affordable insurance, the game is completely over for Republicans.

 

This isn't about the American people. It's about attacking the Obama administration and throwing anything they possibly can against Obamacare and hoping it continues to stick.
