No Oversight!


By Jeff Simpson

Lamar Alexander (R- Tenn) has been front and center saying that President should resign, and/or many heads should roll because the Affordable Care Act website was not working properly in the beginning:

 “This is the internet age. Even before the internet age McDonald’s could tell you how many hamburgers it was selling every day,” Alexander said.

Speaking of heads should roll, while Senator Alexander was busy whining about lack of oversight of the ACA website, his own Chief of Staff was busy also.  

Nashville, Tenn. — U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander said Wednesday he has placed his chief of staff on leave after learning the staffer’s home was being searched as part of a child pornography investigation.

In a news release Tuesday, the Tennessee Republican said he had just been informed by the Senate legal counsel’s office that law enforcement agents were conducting a search of Ryan Loskarn’s home. Loskarn is the chief of staff in Alexander’s Washington, D.C., office.

“I am stunned, surprised and disappointed by what I have learned,” Alexander said in the news release.


  1. What, no comment from Republican Senator Glen Grothman on this GOP #fail ???

  2. apples to oranges buddy. One affects the entire country, the other is a private matter - which by the way, was dealt with.

    good grief.

  3. one is a website glitch and one is probably the most disgusting crime imaginable. I know there is no comparison.....
