Dems kill bill to provide oversight to massive bonuses at Obamacare exchange

By Kelly Maher

Rep. Jon Keyser (R-Morrison) brought forth a bill in Colorado to provide legislative oversight to the bonuses granted to executives at the Colorado Obamacare exchange, Connect for Health Colorado. In the last two years alone, a handful of high-level employees received $200,000 in performance bonuses despite a program riddled with glitches, cancellations, and long wait times. Representative Keyser brought House Bill 15-052 to the House Health, Insurance and Environment committee to provide transparency and accountability to the Obamacare exchange bonuses. It was summarily killed by a straight party-line vote, with Democrats voting no. Of course.
