Issa: Obama Needs to Fire Officials Over Obamacare Failure

By    |   Sunday, 27 October 2013 12:00 PM

If someone isn't fired over the Obamacare implementation debacle, then President Barack Obama is "missing the point of Management 101," says Republican Rep. Darrell Issa of California.

"The president has been poorly served in the implementation of his own signature legislation," Issa said Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation."

Asked specifically if he meant Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius should resign, Issa said that if she can't reorganize and assemble a team to meet Obama's agenda, "she shouldn't be there."

Sebelius said last week in an interview with CNN's Sanjay Gupta that she wasn't aware of the website's problems before it went live on Oct. 1. Issa wants to know why she didn't know.

Sebelius declined to testify last Thursday, citing a scheduling conflict, but is set to testify Wednesday before the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

Using an iceberg analogy, Issa said his committee is looking for "quick answers" to straighten out as much of the "above the water" issues, such as the website glitches.

He also wants to address the 90 percent of the problems below the water. Those include 2,500 counties – 58 percent – that have only one or two companies bidding to provide health insurance.

It's "a question of cost and benefit" to people, Issa said.
