Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and her counterpart in South Carolina want to hear directly how the Obama administration plans to protect consumers from identity theft and other potential fraud related to Obamacare.
According to an Associated Press report out of Columbia, S.C., Bondi and South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson wrote to President Obama asking him to set up a meeting between attorneys general and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
The formal request to the White House was necessary, Bondi and Wilson wrote, because Sebelius has ignored earlier communications.
“Due to the lack of response to the multitude of concerns shared with your Administration by numerous states over the last several months, we are requesting you to direct Secretary Sebelius to meet with the concerned attorneys general to address those issues,” the letter states.
Tuesday’s letter is the first direct communication between the Republican attorneys general and the White House, AP reported.
An Aug. 8 letter to Sebelius signed by 13 attorneys general – including Wilson and Bondi – demanded that Sebelius answer questions about protecting Americans’ personal identification collected as part of Obamacare enrollment.
In particular, the AGs wanted more information about how so-called “navigators” – government counselors who are supposed to assist those trying to enroll in Obamacare – were screened for employment, trained and monitored.
In September, Wilson testified before Congress that Obamacare will be “a con-man’s all-you-can-eat buffet overflowing with a gold mine of sensitive information” vulnerable to abuse.
If the name “Wilson” and South Carolina rings a bell, it should.
Alan Wilson is the adopted son of U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., who famously shouted “you lie” at Obama while the president addressed a joint session of Congress trying to push the then-nascent health-care reform bill.
Joe Wilson, of course, was criticized at the time by pundits and politicians from both parties and apologized for the outburst.
In December, Obama’s oft-repeated statement that Americans who liked their health insurance would be able to keep their health insurance under Obamacare was named Politifact’s “lie of the year.”
The president hasn’t apologized yet.
