Wednesday night on All In with Chris Hayes: Republicans got another chance to attack health insurance in a House hearing on the Obamacare rollout Wednesday morning. The GOP’s grilling of Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius ranged from serious to silly to just plain oblivious. Rep. Leonard Lance and Rep. Donna Christensen, both members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee who attended Wednesday’s hearing, and Clay Johnson, Former Presidential Innovation Fellow and CEO of the Department of Better Technology, will join Hayes to talk about the latest installment in the saga of the ‘monkey court.’
Chris Hayes will also talk with Wendell Potter, former Health Insurance Executive and current Senior Analyst at the Center for Public Integrity, about the truth behind all the hooplah over cancellation letters some people are receiving from their health insurance companies.
Plus: Former Rep. Barney Frank of Massachusetts will join Hayes to talk about the Citigroup-authored bill to strip Wall Street regulations that some members of Congress are claiming he supports. (Spoiler alert: He opposes it.)
Later, Joel Berg, Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, Executive Director of the New York City Coalition Against Hunger and former USDA Coordinator of Community Food Security for the Clinton Administration, Swami Durga Das, Executive Director and CEO of The River Fund and Manager of The River Fund Food Pantry, and Margarette Purvis, President and CEO of the Food Bank for New York City, will join the table to discuss the approaching hunger cliff. Every American on food stamps will see their benefits cut as stimulus funding starts to expire November 1.
