“I wasn’t called on. They had pre-selected the people who were going to ask questions. I guess someone made those decisions,” Burgess told TheDC at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
When asked who picked the individuals, Burgess responded, “Honestly, I don’t know. I assume it was the House conference that made the decision who got to ask a question.”
Burgess, a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, blasted the Obama administration for leaving the nation’s governors in the dark about the implementation of the health care law and refusing to testify before House committees about the process.
