Issa Tells Witness To Watch More Fox News

In Darrell Issa's weird world, Fox News is a clearinghouse for all facts.
7 years ago by David

Darrell Issa dropped a good one during his ACA navigator witch-hunt yesterday, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Issa asked Farris whether he knew that all applicant information ended up on the federal site. Farris said private information was not stored there.

ā€œYou need to watch more Fox, Iā€™m afraid,ā€ Issa said.

Dr. Randy Farris is the regional CMS administrator in charge of overseeing navigators in Texas. Fox News recently aired a clip of a James O'Keefe video where navigators were allegedly encouraging applicants to understate their income and hide the fact that they were smokers to lower their premiums.

Whether that video is unedited and legitimate remains in question, given its source, but the navigators in question were decertified and additional safeguards added going forward after it aired.

ACORN, anyone?
