House committee subpoenas Sebelius over health website woes

(CNN) - The Republican-led House Oversight Committee has subpoenaed Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius as part of its effort to obtain documents and other information about the embattled website, a committee spokesman tells CNN's Lisa Desjardins.

Rep. Darrell Issa had previously requested information about the website and the online rollout of Obamacare, which has been plagued by problems. But committee aides said last week that Sebelius had failed to respond.

    I see a pattern emerging....

    Billary "What difference does it make" Clinton – Took the fall for Benghazi for Obama
    Lois "Plead the 5th Lerner – Took the fall for Obama
    Kathleen "Whatevs" Willbillus – Took the fall for Obama

    These are Pbama's "Binders full of women" who he let take the fall for his incompetence.

    Seems to me that the actual war on women is coming from the POTUS.

    And where was that committee just three weeks ago? Oh, yeah, they shutdown the government and threatened to crash the economy. And, now they are worried about a "toubled website". Frankly I am way more worried about their lack of patritism or sense of duty to America.

    all obama and his band of incompetents do is cover up and conceal their incompetence. congress has oversight duties under the constitution to make sure our government operates according to the laws of the land and is not corrupt and/or incompetent.

    it is very clear the obama administration does not think the laws of this nation apply to them and their incompetence must be covered up at all costs. they have stonewalled every investigation into every one of their debacles. they claim executive privilege where none exists and hide and coverup. they claim criminal investigations prevent them from disclosing anything, yet no criminal proceedings ever take place.

    obama and all of his lackeys are as corrupt and incompetent as the day is long. this simply cannot hide this fact from the american people any longer thanks to obamacare.

    Why doesn't he give them time to get it all figured out before he starts demanding reports? The Secretary asked for more time because of her reduced staff during the government shutdown, and Issa responded by allowing one extra working day.

    "Seems to me that the actual war on women is coming from the POTUS."

    Says the lady living in perpetual bubbleland utopia.

    Yeah, I know. The Kochs' love it when you folks repeat their talking points on CNNs ticker. Makes both of them feel all powerful and majestic.
