Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is now on notice that her agency will be subpoenaed for documents for a program Rep. Darrell Issa says hides the effects of Obamacare.

The Department of Health and Human Services had a chance to repond without a subpoena but made an “embarrassing” attempt, according to Issa.

"Basically somebody hit a button and said print out a bunch of spreadsheets in an illegible format," Issa, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, told Fox News. "So we will be issuing the subpoena."

Issa has requested documents about an $8 billion program that pays bonuses to Medicare Advantage plans, which Issa claims is being used to hide the first round of Medicare Advantage cuts tied to Obamacare.

"It's an unbelievable abuse of power," he said, adding that the program basically funds "what Obamacare took away," Fox News reported.
