WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee said on Monday that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is expected to appear before the panel on October 30 to answer questions about the troubled rollout of President Barack Obama's healthcare law.

The Republican-controlled committee, in a statement, also said lead contractors for implementation of the law, also known as Obamacare, will testify at a separate hearing on Thursday about their role in the rollout.

CGI, Serco, and Equifax have confirmed that they will send representatives, and QSSI has also been invited to appear, the committee said.

Today White House says they may delay the individual mandate due to someone not using Yahoo Site Builder to build the obamacare website.

On Sept. 30, GOP took their 2nd step back from a total defunding of obamacare to merely delaying the individual mandate 6 months longer than it already is set, this would have ended the “shutdown.”

White House said no.

And they call Bush an idiot?
