The country is in the best of hands. Well, that is only if you believe all the ‘effing MSM. Hackers don’t need to hack anything:
After multiple attempts to access the problem-plagued website, Hadley finally made it past the registration page Thursday. Thatâ€™s when he was greeted with downloadable letters about eligibility â€” for two people in South Carolina. (Screenshot below.) [See link for it. — ed.]
The letters, dated October 8, acknowledge receipt of an application to the Health Insurance Marketplace and the eligibility of family members to purchase health coverage. One of the letters was addressed to Thomas Dougall, a lawyer from Elgin, SC.
Along with plenty of personal information that anyone bent upon identity theft could use for their own purposes.
Unbelievable! $400 million dollars to create an inoperative, security challenged website that (besides the aforementioned) is forcing users to create an account before they can even “shop” on it to see the health plans available to them. Of course, we all know why that is; the sticker shock is enough to send someone whose private health care policy was just canceled to the emergency room.
More on the security breaches, here:
Security issues are a new concern for the troubled HealthCare.gov website. If they cannot be resolved, they could prove to be more serious than the long list of technical problems the administration is trying to address.
â€śYou accepted a risk on behalf of every user … that put their personal financial information at risk,â€ť Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., told Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius during questioning before the House Energy and Commerce Committee. â€śAmazon would never do this. ProFlowers would never do this. Kayak would never do this. This is completely an unacceptable level of security.â€ť
Sebelius could only stutter something out about how they had a “temporary” security certificate. Even CBS News noted:
An internal Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) memo dated Sept. 27 - four days before the HealthCare.gov website went live - indicates the government decided to go forward with launching the site even though there were “inherent security risks.”
The memo is written to CMS chief Marilyn Tavenner from her Consortium Administrator for Health Plan Operations James Kerr and the Deputy Chief Information Officer Henry Chao.
The memo says the law requires that Federally Facilitated Marketplace (FFM) systems successfully undergo a Security Control Assessment (SCA) but that “due to system readiness issues, the SCA was only partly completed. This constitutes a risk that must be accepted and mitigated to support the Marketplace Day 1 operations.”
So, the government knew that the site wasn’t really secure but they decided to launch it anyway to meet douche-bag Obama’s deadline.
And now, Obama and the Democrats and all the lock-step liberals want you to also trust your personal medical information to this site.
As usual, Obama and his lap-dogs in the MSM, and the leftist bloggers and pundits are trying to deflect the blame to everyone except themselves; the Republicans (not one Republican senator voted for this monstrosity) and the insurance companies, and, I guess, space aliens.
Yeah, well, ‘eff all of you Democrats and libtards. You wrote the law; you told us it had to pass to find out what was in it; you promised we could keep our doctors and plans, you ‘effing lied to us, and now you’re blaming everyone but yourselves for the disaster. You wrote it, you voted for it, you own it.
