Uh Oh: Endangered Senate Democrat Calls for ObamaCare Probe

Posted by on Nov 11, 2013 at 6:22 pm

Let’s call this the Democratic Senate Self-Preservation Act. As we discover how pitifully small a number have signed up for this disaster, panicked Democrats are fleeing the sinking ObamaCare ship.

Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) will ask two oversight agencies for a full-blown investigation into the problems surrounding the ObamaCare launch.

Hagan, who is up for reelection in 2014, is asking her Senate colleagues to co-sign a letter asking two agencies to conduct “a complete, thorough investigation to determine the causes of the design and implementation failures of HealthCare.Gov.”

“These problems are simply unacceptable, and Americans deserve answers and swift solutions,” Hagan writes in a letter obtained by The Hill. “Taxpayers are owed a full and transparent accounting of how the vendors contracted to build the site failed to launch it successfully.”

All well and good, Senator, but you voted for this. This pathetic attempt to cover your hide is more than a bit self-serving.

Hagan’s letter highlights the anxiety over ObamaCare being felt by centrist Senate Democrats facing reelection next year.

She is one of three red state Democrat facing reelection in 2014 who support a bill that would allow people to keep their existing health insurance plans under ObamaCare. A fourth, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) faces reelection until 2018.

Hagan was also one of several Democratic senators up for reelection next year who met with President Obama last week on the failures of the ObamaCare website.

There’s so much more that needs investigating, but weren’t we told criticism of ObamaCare was racist?

    Dear Senator Hagan: You did not read the bill.Moreover, if you read the bill you knew the disaster that awaited the citizens you swore an oath to protect.Therefore, you are asking the citizens of North Carolina to vote for a person who is to lazy to read a bill and/or wants to harm the citizenry it has sworn an oath to serve.

    Good luck in the next election cycle, asshole.

    Hagen was one of the democrats who voted on Sept. 29, 2010 to take the Grandfather Clause out of the obama-care. She is lying and trying to act innocent. Here is the proof. If the Republicans publicize this they can retake the Senate and keep the House. They tried to keep the cancellations from happening, but Hagen and all the democrats thought the American People would forget about this bill and its vote. Here are all their names that voted with Hagen on this Senate Bill. I don’t think any of them should be voted back in…..

    Rats deserting a sinking ship. The whole bunch of idiots who promoted this abomination should get voted out of office come 2014 so this corrupt administration has to get squared away.

    “Taxpayers are owed a full and transparent accounting of how the vendors contracted to build the site failed to launch it successfully.”
    The senator talks about transparency, how about the claim by his majesty, that the ” Obama administration would be the most transparent”
    Yes the people of America are owed an accounting for all the lies, cover ups, and deceptions. The brave Americans that lost their lives in Libya, who’s family still want closure. It does matter to the parents and family of these Americans.
