After voting more than 40 times to destroy the Affordable Care Act, and shutting down the U.S. government in an attempt to defund it, Republicans in the House of Representatives held a hearing into the computer snafu at the start of the ACA -- pretending that they care about this "failure" in the plan to bring health insurance to 30 million more Americans.
Both of West Virginia's Republicans in Congress, Shelley Capito and David McKinley, voted for the defunding that caused the shutdown. And McKinley is on the House committee that staged the bogus hearing. Brad Woodhouse of Americans United for Change wrote:
"Give me a break. It's really rich for Republicans to be shedding crocodile tears over the glitches in the ACA website when they have done nothing for four years but try to impede, repeal and defund the law and root for its failure. This is pure, craven politics. You know that Congressman McKinley doesn't give a whit that Americans are having trouble enrolling in a health plan, when his voting record reflects someone who prefers that uninsured Americans be left with no quality, affordable coverage options at all."
