Several North Carolinians who will be helped by the Affordable Care Act have had their requests to testify at a field hearing in Gastonia, NC ignored by Congressman Darrell Issa’s Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. These potential witnesses and Obamacare supporters will rally outside of the sham hearing starting at 9 am tomorrow morning and hold a press conference 30 minutes after the conclusion of the hearing.
According to the Charlotte Observer, the official witness list was hand picked by Issa’s staff and they are sure to stick to the message made plain by the hearing’s official title: “ObamaCare Implementation: Sticker Shock of Increased Premiums.”
The hearing, of course, is a sham. It is a partisan tactic that is quite literally straight out of the “Republican Playbook” and intended only to trash Obamacare, instead of genuinely trying fix or improve the law.
Below are letters from the four witnesses ignored by Darrell Issa.
