Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will be back in the hot seat next week at a hearing of a House Health subcommittee.
Her testimony on Obamacare, scheduled for Dec. 11, comes after she served as the sole witness during an Energy and Commerce Committee hearing in October. At that time, in reference to the rollout of the Affordable Care Act’s insurance exchanges’ website, she told lawmakers to “hold me accountable for the debacle. I’m responsible.”
Expect the focus of next week’s hearing to go beyond the rollout. “The problems with the president’s health care law are far worse than the many HealthCare.gov-induced headaches that have plagued Americans across the country for the past two months,” Health Subcommittee Chairman Joe Pitts, R-Pa., said in a statement.
