CONGRESSMAN PITTENGER:  OBAMACARE QUICKLY BECOMING A “NATIONAL DISASTER”

 
WASHINGTON – Wednesday afternoon, Congressman Robert Pittenger (NC-09) addressed the U.S. House of Representatives about reports the Obamacare website is sending incorrect, garbled data to insurers, potentially giving enrollees the wrong health insurance plan or subsidy.
 
“According to the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal, the Obamacare website is sending garbled data to insurers, claiming, for example, that some enrollees have three spouses, or that someone has signed up for three separate insurance plans, or has enrolled, then unenrolled, then re-enrolled multiple times in one day.
 
“In short, you could fight your way through the website, fill out all the forms correctly, and still end up with the wrong insurance, the wrong subsidy, or the wrong coverage.
 
“Now is the time to end the madness.  The individual mandate must be delayed by one year.  And President Obama and Senator Reid must be willing to sit down with Republicans to discuss real reforms to what is quickly becoming a national disaster.”
