Key House Committee Threatens Obama Admin. With Subpoena Over Health Care Data

House Republicans suspect the White House has more Obamacare data than they’re letting on, a tug-of-war that’s playing out amid new fears Medicaid enrollment could far outpace requests for private insurance under President Obama’s program.

House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp, Michigan Republican, sent a stern letter Friday to Marilyn Tavenner, the federal official closest to the health care law’s implementation, that threatened to subpoena the records from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

“The Committee is not prepared to wait until ‘around mid-November’ for the Administration’s scrubbed and spun numbers,” Mr. Camp wrote.

Question? Why threaten a subpoena in order for them to have time to cook the books. Just file the subpoena without warning.

432, It's a game. It would take the first two weeks of November to get the subpoena heard anyway. Charades. Musical chairs.
