Feds sued over Kagan's Obamacare role?
Elena Kagan served as Barack Obama’s solicitor general during the time that a legal strategy to defend Obamacare was being assembled, and Judicial Watch, which investigates government corruption, now has filed a lawsuit to gain access to records of her role in the Obamacare discussions.
That’s because of the convergence of her appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court and that court’s scheduled review of Obamacare in just a few weeks.
Kagan so far has refused to recuse herself from the case, considered one of the biggest cases ever to confront the court since it would impose a social program requiring every person in the country to purchase government-specified health insurance or face the wrath of Washington in the form of fines and penalties.
But the administration has refused to comply with Freedom of Information Act requests for details regarding just exactly what Kagan did in the development of the Obamacare strategy.
