U.S. Representative Greg Walden of Oregon requested the GAO investigate the state's troubled health exchange.

 

"Oregonians are rightfully concerned about what happened to Cover Oregon and what happened to healthcare.gov.   Hundreds of millions of dollars have be spent and little to show for it, especially at Cover Oregon.  That's why I'm happy GAO is going to investigate Cover Oregon.  This is important to have their independent look, non partisan look.  This is an organization with a great reputation for thoroughness so we can get to the truth about what happened to the 300 million taxpayer dollars.  We deserve better."

 

Oregon got 300 million in federal grants to build and operate its Cover Oregon website.

 

And still Oregonians cannot purchase health insruance through the Cover Oregon website on their own.
