And welcome and say hi hi hi hi.
Two congresswoman Blackburn herself.
Who I believe.
Is out there at the cannon house office building are you there congresswoman.
Yes I now you -- -- got this year.
You -- to got to -- and a little bit today didn't.
Well a little -- what we were trying to do is to be careful with our time.
And get some things on the record and one of the big questions.
And -- -- responsible for -- us because when we have the contractors in front of us last week.
Nobody seemed to know who was in charge and as we haven't bear in mind we started our oversight.
On the obamacare rollout the president's health -- -- how would roll out we started this back in March 20 a lot of we have done a dozen or so hearings since that point in time.
And they have assured us.
Did they were conducting their regular oversight -- there was -- -- our Gary Cohen who is it says hi Ellen on the way.
This I know is an agency with the political appointee it was about the specific flight to implement this law the secretary that I'll sit where on track.
Things are going to work that we are going to get this job and done this is going to be a great experience.
When we had the contractors in front of us light sweet.
We asked them did you all meet together against -- wasn't -- not the designers and engineers just security teams.
And I was in charge who's responsible for the -- in testing and nobody seemed to -- so that was one of the primary questions today.
We wanted to get an answer or the secretaries that I'm responsible for this debacle.
-- I guess it landed on her desk.
-- -- -- Probably will end up with the quote of the day.
We -- -- -- when you pointed out some people who want to drive toward him not a Ferrari and somebody wanna drink out of red Solo Cup and not stay somewhere.
And as an apple -- American I applauded you -- you're getting the Mexican right.
But you were inquiring there down the line.
That bad error isn't necessarily better that what the administration thinks is a better health care plan isn't necessarily better for the people who are being shoved into them.
That's like crazy as some people do not want or need eight planned and -- and I Ferrari if you -- What they're wanting something that covers basic needs or as my parents used to have.
Major medical insurance is what they call that -- catastrophic insurance some people -- like me you have a health savings account he loved that.
And that's what you want to -- And it is a fallacy to.
This -- Eddy -- like what you have you can keep it.
It is -- meant to be a false.
And people are -- the president directly responsible for that.
And didn't you know people like choices and it -- at some people wanna have Chardonnay out of a piece of -- -- where.
Some people want to -- -- out of our Nextel Cup let them kids don't force everybody.
I believe outer banks still I believe if you're from Tennessee you're supposed to say injecting code but I'm not I'm not got that we -- -- NRC I guess it would be better.
Now the last -- ask in this is a little in the weeds and then we'll let you go.
Is there really is this really the right way to do these kind of hearings to four minutes of questioning at a time and Democrats attack Republicans Republicans attacked the administration.
You end up with -- you're questioning was quite incisive and quite to the point but a lot of what I've heard today has been I've heard a goodly bit of gas battery today.
And -- a lot of incisive questioning is this really the right way to do these kinds of hearing.
It isn't like congress approaches oversight and bear in mind as it -- we have in it yes it's a serious hearing it and it is a part of a continuation.
Now what we will have the opportunity to do you know I didn't get all of my questions on the record.
And I will have a five -- that I can submit those questions and we will submit additional questions to the secretary.
With the request that they come back to last one I asked her for today.
On the record when I was asking her to ballpark cost.
-- what -- have been spent on the roll out and then asking her to submit the accounting.
And what has been spent.
Past present and what they expect to stand in the future.
To build mess to clean it up now and then to get it on the right track going forward.
You know she's mad Internet when she -- those eyeglasses off and -- hearing.
That's Marsha Blackburn is congresswoman from Tennessee we thank you for making time for Abdullah Ali thank you.
