House Committee Investigates Illegal Administration Spending on ObamaCare

Galen Institute Senior Fellow Doug Badger testified before Congress today that “Implementation of the cost-sharing reduction program [in ObamaCare] has been irresponsible, unaccountable and, at its heart, unlawful.”

Badger testified before the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, following a hearing on the same issue yesterday before the Ways and Means Investigative subcommittee.  Both hearings highlight a report detailing findings from an 18-month investigation on ObamaCare spending. Despite the Administration’s refusal to cooperate, the joint investigation—spearheaded by Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady—has revealed that key Administration officials knowingly and willfully circumvented appropriations law and the Constitution.

American Enterprise Institute Resident Fellow Tom Miller testified during the hearing as well.  All of the testimonies are here.
