Healthcare.gov Remains Unsecure and Unsafe


Last month, the Obama Administration refused to tell people about the state of security on Healthcare.gov. Two week ago, a hacker broke into the federal website. And only yesterday, the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office (GAO) reported what we all feared: Healthcare.gov remains unsecure and millions of people’s sensitive personal information is at risk.

Millions of Americans have put their personal information into Healthcare.gov in an attempt to purchase insurance under Obamacare. Yet, according to the GAO, “weaknesses remained in the security and privacy protections applied to HealthCare.gov and its supporting systems.”

With the next open-enrollment period beginning, the GAO detailed what will happen if this problem isn’t fixed:

“Until these weaknesses are fully addressed, increased and unnecessary risks remain of unauthorized access, disclosure, or modification of the information collected and maintained by Healthcare.gov and related systems, and the disruption of service provided by the systems”

Obamacare has been and continues to be a disaster. Now, more than ever, we need to repeal this broken law and replace it with a patient-center, free market system.
