Oversight Committee Democrats to Issa: Withdraw Park subpoena

Shayn Roby’s Take: Democratic Reps Elijah Cummings of Maryland and Gerald Connolly of Virginia said in a letter that preparing for a congressional hearing would take away from time needed to fix the beleaguered website. They also said,“Mr. Park has been a key leader in around-the-clock efforts to improve the functionality of the HealthCare.gov website, and diverting Mr. Park’s energies at this moment could seriously impair those efforts.” The requests of Cummings and Connolly should be taken seriously, especially in light of the fact that the Obama administration was so forthcoming with transparency during the Fast and Furious scandal, the Benghazi SNAFU, and the IRS/ improper conservative scrutiny scandal. (All perceived sarcasm regarding the previous sentence would be well placed.)
