Peter Suderman on Obamacare Questions the White House Won't Answer



In a briefing this week, White House press secretary Jay Carney applauded the administration's openness regarding data related to Obamacare performance and implementation. "If you look at how we've dealt with data as it's become available over the past several months, both good data and bad data, we've done our best to provide it to you when we are confident about the accuracy of it," he said.

Every White House toots its own horn, but this was a bit much. The Obama administration's signature domestic policy achievement has been marked by an unwillingness to directly answer basic questions about the law and its implementation. When it comes to Obamacare, Peter Suderman explains, the most transparent administration in history is anything but.
