Issa Issues Another Subpoena On Obamacare Website
(CNN) -- House Oversight Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa has issued another subpoena in the GOP's assault on the disastrous rollout of HealthCare.gov, this time summoning the chief White House technology officer to testify.

The White House has resisted congressional Republicans' efforts to speak to Todd Park, chief technology officer in the Office of Science and Technology Policy, saying that he's too busy trying to fix the online exchanges. The resistance has infuriated Republicans, finally resulting in Issa's subpoena, which calls on Park to testify on Wednesday.

"Your unwillingness to appear before the committee continues an unfortunate pattern of the current administration when it comes to matters of transparency and Congressional oversight," Issa writes in a letter to Park released to the media.

Democrats have accused the California Republican of attacking Obamacare for purely political reasons, arguing that he has selectively leaked administration notes on the website's rollout that make it look particularly calamitous while withholding other documents.

Issa has maintained he's interested only in the truth.

Responding to Park's assertions that he was too busy to testify, Issa notes in the letter "that since the October 1 launch, you have found time to talk with media outlets about the site's failure." Park is quoted in a New York Times article dated October 7.

The American people deserve answers, Issa writes. "Reliable testimony about the status of efforts to address problems with HealthCare.gov is highly relevant to ongoing concerns about security vulnerabilities," Issa said.

The testimony is also important to Republican efforts to allow Americans to be able to keep their health insurance plans that do not meet the minimum coverage standards required by the health care law, Issa said.
