House Committee on Oversight to call Gruber and Tavenner to Testify on Perceived ACA Deception

According to a document posted on November 21st, 2014, the United States House of Representatives Committee on Oversite and Government Reform will be calling on Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Marilyn Tavenner and ACA architect Jonathan Gruber to testify on Tuesday, December 9th before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on what they feel are perceived deceptions surrounding ObamaCare.

The document posted specifically quotes Rep. Issa as saying,

“From the outset, the health law has been the poster child for this Administration’s broken transparency promises. Americans were told if they liked their plans and doctors, they could keep them. They were told the individual mandate wasn’t a tax. None of these were true. Jonathan Gruber, one of ObamaCare’s chief architects, publicly lauded the ‘lack of transparency’ that was necessary to pass the law and credited ‘the stupidity of the American voter’ that allowed the Administration to mislead the public. CMS Administrator Marilyn Tavenner testified before our Committee that the Administration met its goals by enrolling 7.3 million individuals, however we now know that wasn’t the case. The numbers provided by CMS were deceptive and obscured the number of Americans running from exchange plans. The American people deserve honesty, transparency and respect from those who forced the federal government into their healthcare. I expect Mr. Gruber and Administrator Tavenner to testify publicly next month about the arrogance and deceptions surrounding the passage and implementation of ObamaCare.”
