Panel subpoenas details on funding to promote reform law
Modern Healthcare

The Ways and Means Committee has subpoenaed details on federal funding spent to promote the 2010 federal healthcare overhaul. Rep. Dave Camp (R-Mich.), the panel’s chairman, issued his first subpoena after receiving no responses to voluntary requests for the information since June 1. “The lack of response leads me to believe that this administration is either unwilling to disclose why they are using taxpayer dollars to market their unpopular law or are unable to keep track of how those taxpayer dollars are being spent,” Camp said in a news release.
