Crossroads Sues HHS Over Obamacare Waivers

Wednesday, 23 Mar 2011 02:15 PM

By Dan Weil

Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies (Crossroads GPS), the interest group co-founded by Karl Rove, is suing the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to get a look at documents describing how the department decides who can get waivers from the healthcare reform law, The Hill reports.

The group turned to the legal system because of HHS’ failure to respond to a Jan. 7 request for documents under the Freedom of Information Act. Crossroads GPS wants "any and all memoranda, guidance, directives, instructions and other documents … relating to the criteria to be applied by HHS in deciding whether to grant or deny applications for [a] waiver," the group states.

"Until President Obama is willing to grant the entire country a waiver from Obamacare, his administration needs to come clean on how they decide who wins and loses in the waiver lottery," Crossroads GPS President Steven Law said in a statement.
