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 danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
