American Seniors Association Praises Rep. Issa for Subpoenaing HHS to Get Secret Obamacare Documents

Demands Disclosure of Program Hiding Obamacare Effects

Atlanta, GA – The American Seniors Association, the nation’s fastest growing senior advocacy organization, today praised U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Ca., for subpoenaing documents about an $8 billion program that pays bonuses to Medicare Advantage plans.

"Obamacare was passed behind too many closed doors, with too many manipulations and too little honesty with the American people,” says American Seniors Association CEO Phil Kent. "Now President Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is trying to hide some sort of bonus scheme as a way to conceal the first round of Medicare Advantage cuts tied to the Obamacare law.”

"This is a terrible abuse of executive power,’ Kent says, "so it is gratifying that the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is doing his duty to get to the bottom of it. HHS had a chance to respond to the Issa document request without a subpoena, but instead chose to hide what the administration is trying to do-- particularly from America’s seniors before the presidential election.

"The full scope of this latest Obamacare deception must come to light,” Kent added.

American Seniors Association has been opposed to Obamacare from its inception and has especially criticized AARP for its false, misleading and reckless behavior in claiming to represent and protect the interest of the nation’s seniors.
