Rep. Darrel Issa Goes Fishing Trying To Prove Obama Lies
Issa, whose whole career is based on investigating the Obama administration, is demanding that 15 insurance companies provide correspondence with the White House to try to prove that the president knew people wouldn’t be able to keep their policies.
The letters were sent to major insurance companies — Aetna, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Humana, Kaiser Permanente, UnitedHealth Group among them. Issa asks for a response by Dec. 13.
Issa is looking for a few pieces of information. Did insurance companies know that the president would say that Americans could keep their health plan or their provider? Did they inform the administration that some plans would be canceled or provider networks changed? Did they object to that characterization?
He also asked for “all … communications” between company employees and members of the Obama administration since the Affordable Care Act was signed into law in March 2010. There is another request for interactions between insurance company employees about the accuracy of Obama’s “keep your doctor” pledge.
