Darrell Issa’s National Impeachment Tour

Hoping to drum up support for his continued series of witch hunts, House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa is taking this show on the road.

Issa’s national impeachment tour will take him from North Carolina to Arizona before ending in Texas.

“While the President repeatedly said that Americans could keep their insurance under ObamaCare, even he has had to admit that just isn’t so. By holding these field hearings, the Committee will hear firsthand the stories about the initial impact of broken promises,” Issa said in a statement. “These hearings will help the Oversight Committee determine how the Affordable Care Act is affecting individuals in areas hit the hardest by the ACA where costs are rising and choices are limited. HealthCare.gov continues to struggle while millions of Americans have their health plans cancelled and are left without the options the President promised.”

Will Darrell Issa use his time in Texas to ask why over 1.5 million people are being denied access to Medicaid under Rick Perry? What has been the initial impact for them? Aren’t their choices limited? Haven’t they been left without options?

Make no mistake, Issa may claim that this is a fact-finding mission, but in reality this is a short-term political campaign intended to turn people against the Obama administration. There is nothing that will result from this that he couldn’t accomplish from the press box high above Impeachment Field.

Perhaps I shouldn’t say “nothing.” It may result in a series of invites to the Sunday punditry circuit.

What does the Witch Hunter’s Road Show mean for President Obama’s third term?

    Wouldn’t it be shocking if Issa reported the facts that show the ACA as an improvement over current plans?
    Okay….you can stop laughing…

      If that happens, you can count on Issa bury that report in the deepest, darkest hole he can find.

        Yup. The place where his soul should be.

    More money-saving, non-frivolous spending by the “conservatives”.

    Yeah, but until Issa can figure out how to blame it on Obama, you won’t be hearing him talki about that.

    in areas hit the hardest by the ACA

    They really, really want to talk about this as if it were a Katrina or other natural disaster.

    I wish the DNC and the DCCC would pour some resources in Darrell Issa’s congressional District to support Issa’s Democratic challenger. In 2012, a poorly funded Democratic candidate, who vigorously challenged Issa received more than 40% of the vote. I think Issa can be defeated in 2014 if Democrats targeted him, pointing out that he is a man who is squandering tax payers’ money to feed his obsession with creating/finding an Obama scandal instead of representing the needs of his district.

    Darryl’s early ca-ree-ah was one insurance scam after another.
    From car theft to arson.
    His supporters call them ‘childhood pranks”.
    whatever happened to a bag of flaming poop?
