Republicans open investigations into Obamacare's disaster sites
Republicans are launching investigations into three state-run ObamaCare exchanges that are failing disastrously. Lawmakers are setting their sites on exchanges in Oregon, Maryland and Massachusetts where Democratic governors embraced the healthcare law, and are demanding to know why their expensive online portals remain useless more than four months after launch. On Wednesday, four Republicans on the House Energy and Commerce Committee sent a letter to the Government Accountability Office (GAO) requesting a review of the $304 million in federal grants that Oregon received to build its broken website. "The catastrophic breakdown of Cover Oregon is unacceptable, and taxpayers deserve accountability," wrote the group of lawmakers led by Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.).
