GOP Senators to HHS Secretary: Who’s Recouping Money for Lousy Obamacare Exchanges?

A trio of Republican senators want the Obama administration to explain whether it will try to recoup taxpayer money spent on state-run health exchanges that didn’t pan out so well last year.

During confirmation hearings, Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell said the government should use the “full extent of the law” to get the money back.

But GOP lawmakers say her counterpart at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Marilyn Tavenner, couched the effort as a state matter during a House oversight hearing in September.
