At National Review Online today, Rep. Peter Roskam (R-Ill.) announced legislation he has introduced to create an independent office to oversee Obamacare’s implementation and administration.
…today I introduced legislation to create a Special Inspector General for Monitoring the Affordable Care Act — or SIGMA — an office to be tasked specifically with examining the implementation and administration of the ACA across the many federal departments, state exchanges, outside contractors, and a deeply involved White House in a way that no single oversight official currently can. SIGMA will serve as an independent watchdog, conducting audits and investigations to discern the full story and report directly to the American people on what decisions are being made, how the law is performing, and whether families and businesses are better off.
Just in case House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi disagrees with the need for an independent watchdog to keep an eye on Obamacare, Roskam has taken advantage of Twitter’s “Throwback Thursday” to remind her of her many calls for the very same type of oversight.
Things certainly changed since 2010.
So, how about some oversight of the Affordable Care Act?
