ed whit1 300WASHINGTON, D.C. (12/12/13) - U.S. Rep. Ed Whitfield (KY-01), Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Energy and Power, chastised Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius during questioning at today's Health Subcommittee hearing entitled "PPACA Implementation Failures: What's Next?" The hearing focused on problems with the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).

"Our very first concern is with the people we represent," stated Whitfield during his questioning. "Some people said we are simply trying to put up obstacles to the successful implementation of this Act, and I can tell you that we are here because our constituents are genuinely concerned and upset about what is going on."

Since the October 1 start of open enrollment, major media outlets have described the launch of PPACA's exchange program as "plagued by problems" and "nothing short of disastrous." The launch of the exchanges has been fraught with significant problems that are leading to major delays for Americans attempting to shop for health coverage.

"The President said that everyone's premiums would decrease, the President said people would be able to keep their plan, and the President said people would be able to keep their doctor. It is turning out that is simply not the case and so there is a lot of frustration and we are upset about it," concluded Whitfield.
