How about an Obama transparency bill?

Growing questions about President Barack Obama and Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’s mismanagement of the unpopular Obamacare program have prompted a House vote this Friday on a pivotal bill that would provide greater transparency by requiring weekly HHS reports on the status of HealthCare.gov.
The Exchange Information Disclosure Act (H.R. 3362) would require Sebelius to regularly report the number of paying Obamacare enrollees, Healthcare.gov metrics, Medicaid enrollments, and basic demographic data to monitor Obamacare’s problems and viability. Senior member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee Rep. Lee Terry (R-NE) authored the bill.
“This is about practicality, not politics,” said Terry. “The American people have a right to know what’s happening with their health care coverage.”
Committee vice chairman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) agrees. “It’s well past time the administration be transparent and upfront with the American people.”
