The House’s top investigator said Thursday he has issued a subpoena ordering President Obama’s top health official to turn over documents related to the flawed rollout of the federal website that serves two-thirds of the country seeking benefits under Obamacare.

Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican and chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, is demanding paperwork from Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius that details the technical problems with, the extent of testing that went into the site and the number of people who successfully enroll through Nov. 13 — his deadline to turn over the documents.


“The administration’s failure to provide answers about what led to the disastrous launch of and what is being done to fix it is completely unacceptable,” Mr. Issa said. “The evidence is mounting that the website did not go through proper testing, including critical security testing, and that the administration ignored repeated warnings from contractors about ongoing problems.

Mr. Issa already has subpoenaed a private contractor that has been tapped to broaden its role by overseeing fixes on the website — QSSI, Inc. — and said Mrs. Sebelius had been warned earlier this month that he would use a subpoena to get the information he wants.
