Rep. Smith Issues Subpoena to Uncover White House’s Role in Faulty HealthCare.gov Security

As chairman of the Science, Space, and Technology Committee, I have repeatedly sought answers from the White House regarding the security of the ObamaCare website, Healthcare.gov. The Obama administration has failed to provide this Committee with information.
In fact, U.S. Chief Technology Officer Todd Park, a top Assistant to President Obama, has refused on five different occasions to testify before the Science Committee about the security risks of Healthcare.gov.
What is the White House trying to hide? News reports in July revealed that a hacker successfully breached the Obamacare website. And we don’t know how many other security breaches have gone unreported.
That is why I issued a subpoena requiring Todd Park to appear before the Subcommittee on Oversight to answer questions regarding his role in developing and evaluating the operations and security of Healthcare.gov. The American people deserve to know their personal information on HealthCare.gov is absolutely secure.
