    The House Energy and Commerce Committee has launched an investigation into the Obama administration’s decision to delay the implementation of parts of Obamacare until after the 2014 midterm elections.

    Committee leaders fired off letters to administration officials, including Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, demanding they produce internal documents and communications related to the decision.

    “Just as the law was crafted out of sight from the American people, the administration is again taking care of some interests behind closed doors while struggling Americans are left to pay for the looming rate shock and grapple with the law’s complex mandates,” Committee chairman Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI) said in a statement announcing the congressional investigation.

    “Despite delays and missed deadlines, administration officials had repeatedly testified before Congress that they were still on schedule to implement the law," he said. "Yesterday, they admitted that wasn’t the case, and it’s clear we have no idea the full scope of delays and disarray that may be coming. The American public deserves answers.”
