A hearing over the Internal Revenue Service and Affordable Care Act, alas, didn't have quite the collegial tone as the MGMA meeting. Indeed, it got downright devilish.
The Oct. 9 hearing of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee started with Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) bickering for 40 minutes with ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) over what should be entered into the record. McClatchy DC reported that Issa refused to allow photos of the main witness—Sarah Hall Ingram, the IRS official in charge of implementing a big part of the new healthcare law—standing next to President George W. Bush.
