President Barack Obama’s health secretary is in the hot seat this week as House Republicans get a chance to question her about the troubled rollout of the health care law they long have tried to repeal.
The leading contractors on the Obama administration’s troubled health insurance website told Congress Thursday that the government failed to thoroughly test the complicated system before it went live.
A House committee investigation will be launched into the problems the healthcare.gov website has experienced so far.
Congressional investigators say pharmacy boards in nearly all 50 states lack the information and expertise to oversee specialty pharmacies like the one that triggered a deadly meningitis outbreak last year.
Nearly a decade ago, federal health inspectors wanted to shut down the pharmacy linked to a recent deadly meningitis outbreak until it cleaned up its operations, according to congressional investigators.
Republican investigators say the Obama administration wanted the failing solar energy company Solyndra to delay announcing employee layoffs until after the 2010 midterm elections.
