Issa Statement on the Departure of CMS’ Chief Operating Officer and Supervisor of Obamacare Rollout

December 30, 2013

WASHINGTON – House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) today released the following statement on Michelle Snyder’s departure from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) where she was the Chief Operating Officer:

“Documents and interviews indicate Michelle Snyder’s involvement in bypassing the recommendation of CMS’ top security expert who recommended delaying the launch of HealthCare.gov after independent testers raised concern about serious vulnerabilities from a lack of adequate security testing. Americans seeking health insurance are left to shoulder the risk of a website that’s still an all-around work in progress because of the cult like commitment officials had to the arbitrary goal of launching on October 1.”
