House Committee Looks to Expand Oversight of ObamaCare Carve Outs for Union Leaders

In a press release yesterday, U.S. House Education and the Workforce Committee Chairman John Kline (R-MN) and Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions Subcommittee Chairman Phil Roe (R-TN) issued a statement about the Committee’s new efforts to expand oversight of the Obama administration’s unilateral “carve outs” for unions:

“The Obama administration seems determined to shield its union allies from the devastating consequences of the president’s health care law while leaving every other American out in the cold. As he begins the latest push to sell a fatally flawed law, will the president discuss the special deals he is crafting for union bosses? The American people deserve the facts and it’s time for the administration to come clean.”

Representatives Kline and Roe have also sent letters to the DOL and HHS that renews their request for documents and communications regarding the alleged missing regulatory proposal that the Committee identified in September as “vanishing” from the Office of Management and Budget’s website.  The Representatives also seek more information surrounding a future reinsurance fee regulation.
