Vitter: Clerks are Blocking ObamaCare Investigation

Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) is claiming that congressional clerks are stonewalling his investigation into why some staffers are allowed exemptions from ObamaCare.

Vitter has aggressively opposed a provision of ObamaCare that allows certain congressional aides to receive employer subsidies to buy healthcare insurance, which he calls “Washington’s ObamaCare exemption.”

Vitter recently wrote to financial clerks in both chambers, as well as leaders of the D.C. health exchange, to demand documents that showed the origin of the exemption.

But he said Thursday that each of his requests was rejected.

“Key players involved appear unwilling to comply with a straightforward Congressional request,” Vitter wrote in a statement Thursday.
