“More than two weeks after opening, the website where people can sign up for coverage under the health care reform law is still a technical mess …” (The Northwestern)
 

“…most have been blocked by blank screens, error messages or account log-ins that won’t work at some point along the way.” (POLITICO)
 

“…this thing is going to implode under its own weight.” (Fox News)
 

“Insurers say the federal health-care marketplace is generating flawed data … Emerging errors include duplicate enrollments, spouses reported as children, missing data fields and suspect eligibility determinations …” (Wall Street Journal)


 

 

Speaker Boehner: Our Drive to Stop the ObamaCare Train Wreck Continues

“HHS Secretary refuses to testify about ObamaCare's rollout”

The hearing - entitled “PPACA Implementation Failures: Didn’t Know or Didn’t Disclose?” - will take place at 9 AM ET and can be watched live online here. (go to weblink)

“Our drive to stop the train wreck that is the president's health care law will continue,” said Speaker Boehner. “We will rely on aggressive oversight that highlights the law's massive flaws and smart, targeted strikes that split the legislative coalition the president has relied upon to force his health care law on the American people.”

Speaker Boehner Announces Republican Budget Negotiators


WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today named the following negotiators to serve on a formal House-Senate conference committee charged with crafting a budget that addresses the drivers of our national debt and deficits, and helps strengthen our economy and create new jobs. “There’s no higher priority than strengthening our economy for middle-class families and small businesses,” said Speaker Boehner. “Our negotiating team will pursue real reforms that address the drivers of our debt, get control of spending and put us on a path to a balanced budget, and expand opportunity for all Americans.

Americans young and old are struggling under the president’s policies - including his disaster of a health care law - and these negotiations are a big opportunity to start building a stronger economy and a brighter future.”
