But as for me and my house ...
Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, threatened to subpoena the Department of Health and Human Services if it does not turn over documents by Thursday (yesterday) on a program he claims is being used to "buy" the election by hiding the Medicare cuts in ObamaCare.
"Your staff has run out of excuses and the long delay in providing these documents is inexcusable," Issa wrote Kathleen Sebelius, Health Secretary.
The request was made months ago for documents concerning an $8 Billion program that pays bonuses to Medicare Advantage plans to mask the first round of Medicare Advantage cuts that would have begun this week.
The effects of ObamaCare's $200 Billion (71%) in Medicare Advantage cuts over the next decade are being delayed by the bonus program which only stays in effect until 2014. Of course, if he's re-elected, you can't do anything about it!
"What they're really doing is trying on the eve of an election not to have seniors realize that the cuts to Medicare Advantage were real," Issa said.
HHS had months to comply with the Committee's request but has repeatedly delayed. Seems strangely familiar. Oh, yeah. Fast and Furious. I see a trend here! Guess we'll have to wait and see. Looks like AARP threw
