Think about it: He, like many other Republicans in the House of Representatives, did the following in Congress:
1) Voted to repeal the Affordable Healthcare Act 46 times
2) Held the U.S. government hostage over Obamacare and effectively ended the government shutdown
3) Spent weeks just to try to work on a bill to end the government shutdown and finally caved in at the last day to prevent the U.S. government from defaulting (well, not all of them. Issa voted to end the government shutdown)
Now in the last week, Issa is going after the Healthcare.gov website and it's problems, even going on CNN to be interviewed by Wolf Blitzer and admit he's "losing his patience."
Can you believe this guy?
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa says he and his colleague are at the end of their rope when it comes to getting information on the launch of the Obamacare website.Below the fold is the video:
“Sen. Lamar Alexander is a patient man, and he’s a very moderate senator. He has lost his patience. I’ve lost my patience,” Issa said Thursday on CNN’s “Newsroom.”
“We’re saying, ‘Start giving us at least the critical — and we prioritize — the critical discovery to let us understand, particularly related to documents we already have, that showed they were shown these failures,” he added.
First off, Issa must be kidding himself if he believes Senator Lamar Alexander is a moderate U.S. Senator. On the Issues.org labels Senator Alexander as a hard-core conservative:
“Both Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and I have asked for documents, we set a reasonable deadline, it expired,” Issa said. “Now we really need to insist on those documents.”Now once the Healthcare.gov website is fixed and efficient, then what will happen next for Issa and his investigations on Obamacare?
Issa is requesting documents on everything from briefings that the website was not ready to be launched to worries that tax and voter information entered on the site could be vulnerable.
“They say they’re cooperating,” Blitzer responded, and then read aloud from a Health and Human Services memo pledging speedy delivery of the documents.
Issa said that ten of the eleven subpoenaed contractors had complied, except for QSSI, the primary company responsible for the site.
The problem with Darrell Issa's argument and his apparent "loss of patience" is that by him attacking the inefficiencies of the Obamacare website, he's efficiently looking to get it better and by doing that, he's really supporting Obamacare.
You'd think Issa might want to continue repealing Obamacare or something useful for a change. Well, actually, none of which has produced anything for Issa so I suppose at this point he'll do anything to get attention.
And judging by his Tweets, Issa certainly loves attention indeed:
Can't stand anymore of Darrell Issa?
