Sen. Cornyn slams White House opposition to Obamacare transparency bill

Posted By Patrick Howley On 11:44 AM 01/14/2014 In | No Comments

Republican Texas Sen. John Cornyn slammed “the audacity” of the Obama White House for vowing to block a bill that would give Congress weekly updates on the status of Obamacare.

The White House claimed that Rep. Lee Terry’s Exchange Information Disclosure Act, which would require the administration to report website visitor counts, website functionality problems and a full list of Obamacare navigators, is “costly” and “extraneous.” The Congressional Budget Office evaluated the bill and gave it a cost score of zero, which Cornyn’s office noted.

“After everything that has gone wrong with Obamacare, the very least this administration can do is commit to providing Americans with regular updates on the program,” Cornyn said in a statement. “I find it incredible that President Obama, who promised to run the most transparent administration in history, has the audacity to refuse additional transparency measures for a program that is in such obvious need of oversight and review.”

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
