It’s been 2 weeks since the close of the turbulent Obamacare enrollment process, and the top official responsible for the law’s implementation has stepped down. President Obama announced the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius Friday, and the nomination of current budget director Sylvia Mathews Burwell. We’ll discuss with two members of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, that will hold Burwell’s confirmation hearings, Sen Tim Scott (R-SC) and Sen Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI).

Former IRS official Lois Lerner was called twice to testify before members of Congress, and both times she refused to answer questions about her role in the targeting of conservative groups by the IRS. Now two powerful House committees and top Republicans are moving forward in their investigation. The House Ways and Means Committee voted along party lines Wednesday to refer Lerner’s case to the Justice Department for prosecution, alleging she may have misled investigators and risked the exposure of taxpayer information. We’ll discuss with two members of the Ways and Means Committee, Ranking Member Rep Sander Levin (D-MI), and Rep Charles Boustany (R-LA).
