Freshman Illinois Republican Rep. Joe Walsh ripped mainstream media reporters at a press conference Wednesday morning for their failure to adequately cover the Obamacare waivers imbroglio.
“This is an outrage,” Walsh said of the Obamacare waivers program. “I don’t know why your profession isn’t outraged. If this were any other president or any other administration, you would be investigating this tooth and nail every single day.”
Kansas Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp organized the presser at which several members ripped the Obama administration for its lack of transparency and inability to answer basic questions surrounding the waivers process. Though the administration announced last week that it is phasing out the Obamacare waivers program starting in September, those that have already received waivers and those that get them before then will be allowed to keep them through September 2012, right before the next presidential election.
