Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has subpoenaed Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius for documents related to the “entirely dysfunctional” Obamacare website's problems.

“The administration’s failure to provide answers about what led to the disastrous launch of HealthCare.gov and what is being done to fix it is completely unacceptable,” the California Republican said.

“The evidence is mounting that the website did not go through proper testing, including critical security testing, and that the Administration ignored repeated warnings from contractors about ongoing problems," he said.

The subpoena demands any documents linked to the malfunctioning website’s technical issues, including the testing process that went into the site as well as the number of people enrolled in the program through the Nov. 13 deadline for delivery of the information.

Issa previously requested the same information from Sebelius on Oct. 10 and Oct. 24. After Sebelius had balked at releasing details about the troubled website since its Oct. 1 launch, Issa had warned that he would use a subpoena to get the information.

Issa said that Obamacare has “given us skyrocketing out-of-pocket costs, fewer choices, and the cancellation of millions of people’s current health insurance coverage.”

Maintaining that the website is “just the beginning of the problems with the healthcare law," he added that the nation deserves to “know why the Administration spent significant taxpayer money on a product that is entirely dysfunctional and puts their personal information at risk.”

Issa also declared that “the president’s signature legislative achievement” contradicted his promise that if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it.
