So here, the government took on the role of acting as an insurance agent that will market and sell policies through an ecommerce site - and did it very, very badly. That's worthy of criticism, and it's entirely consistent with conservative critiques of government activity.

Except it's the boy who cried wolf. It doesn't matter what Obama does, they always say that it's part of grand conspiracy to destroy America because he hates America.

With that kind of history, how can anyone have any confidence that this hearings will be anything else except more of the same nonsense.

Congressional hearings aren't about finding where things went wrong and looking for ways to avoid those mistakes in the future. They are about the politicians trying to impress the voters, and more importantly, the campaign doners, while at the same time destroying the person at the table, just to make themselves feel better about being politicians.
