The Obamacare website routinely uploads your confidential personal information for all to read.
Tea party and conservatives repeatedly warned that this law would be a security risk. Even if they get the website fixed, the system still exposes your personal data to too many people who shouldn’t see it.
And then there’s this: A reporter calls the Obamacare hotline, is put on hold, and then told by the operator they know he’s a reporter, refuses to answer questions, and that a supervisor will call back.
How did the operator know he was a reporter? And even so, why should a reporter be treated differently? Doesn’t this also suggest that Obamacare could be used by present and future administrations against their critics?
