White House technology chief to testify at hearing

(CNN) - The top White House technology officer will appear before the Republican-led House Oversight Committee on Wednesday, despite the Obama administration's insistence that he was too busy helping to repair the flawed Obamacare website

Todd Park was subpoenaed last week by the panel's chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa, after the White House balked at a request for his voluntary cooperation due to his work on the ailing HealthCare.gov site.

    It would be more enlightening to hear testimony form the executives of the companies involved with creating the website for the government. Questions: did they subcontract the job, how did they determine the qualifications of their employees/contractors, did they hire the best or the cheapest, quality and quantity of hardware, what is the plan for reimbusing the government for their shoddy work, etc.

    Hello all,
    What is Mr. Issa's committee going to contribute to or resolve the issues of the web site.
    They are not either computer experts or web site creator knowledgeable or insurance market experts.
    This is exactly what we the people are fed up with spending thousands of dollars wasting time!!
    Yes the site is a disaster... if we need to spend money to fix that UGH but then more on a useless hearing or hearings
    No thanks.

    A website can be fixed, but you cannot fix the warped mind of a right wingnut.

    Issa has promised to hold non stop investigations in hopes to find something to investigate. At least Issa won't have to have his winter vacation interrupted by holding the hearing in December instead.

  8. Obama LIES, Our Healthcare System DIES

    I hope somebody keeps track of all the lies and evasions. That is all we ever seem to get from these incompetent clowns in the Obama administration.
