Waxman Cancels Hearing on CEOs Who Obeyed the Law

By April 14, 2010Health Care

From David Freddoso, Washington Examiner, “Waxman cancels Obamacare CEO hearing“:

A House Energy and Commerce Committee spokeswoman tells me that Chairman Henry Waxman, D-Calif., has indeed cancelled the April 21 subcommittee hearing in which CEOs were to testify about Obamacare. So far, the only indication of this change appears on the committee’s website is on the Republican minority ranking member’s site. In fact, the hearing still appears on Waxman’s committee calendar for that day

The CEOs, required by law to be honest about earnings projections, re-stated their bottom lines in reaction to Obamacare’s passage, earning the ire of Waxman and other Democrats.

Hearings on this matter would likely have proved an embarrassment to the Democrats and helped drag out discussion of Obamacare’s unexpected ill effects.

Other things to keep the committee busy, though. Bloomberg, “Waxman Calls For Major League Baseball Ban on Chewing Tobacco.”
