Dem congressman backs Obamacare probe — to a point

- The Washington Times - Monday, December 23, 2013

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, New York Democrat, said Monday that Congress should investigate the troubled rollout of Obamacare, but that it should be done in a bipartisan way, not as a way to kill the health care law.

“Overall, I think the government can always be made more efficient and there are some lessons we'll need to learn from the flawed rollout,” he said on MSNBC's “Jansing & Co.”

While he said he hasn't heard from many constituents expressing concern about their plans changing, he said he encourages everyone to take a close look at what is being offered and compare it to what was offered in previous plans.

“Evaluate the level of service and the service increase before making a decision if this is a good thing for your family or not,” he said.
