Congresswoman Jenkins issues statement on Subpoena for ObamaCare Enrollment Data

Updated:

NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY THE OFFICE OF CONGRESSWOMAN LYNN JENKINS (KAN.)

TOPEKA – The House Ways and Means Committee has issued a subpoena to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to provide all enrollment data the agency has from the ObamaCare exchanges. As a member of the committee, Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins (KS-02) released the following statement following Chairman Camp’s request:

“Each day, more and more Americans are finding out their healthcare plans have been canceled, and it is my committee’s job to hold the administration accountable for the failed launch of the ObamaCare exchanges. The lack of openness and transparency from the administration is hindering our oversight role as we work to mitigate this crisis for hardworking Americans and their families.

“It has been almost six weeks, and the administration has not solved the widespread problems with the law’s rollout. Administration officials have given Congress some cherry-picked statistics, but they refuse to give us the full picture.”

The enrollment data was originally requested during a House Ways and Means Committee hearing with CMS Administrator Marilyn Tavenner on October 29, 2013. Tavenner said she did not have the enrollment information, although both she and Secretary Sebelius have been briefed on these numbers.

Chairman Camp demanded CMS provide the documents by close of business Friday, November 8. His latest letter can be read here.
