No Privacy In Affordable Care Act

Don't know if anyone caught John McAfee's comments about the security of the healthcare dot gov website, but he figures up to 40 million identities will be compromised by the time enrollment is complete.

This video is just coming out now from an October Congressional hear where Joe Barton finds the "fine print" indicating you have no reasonable expectation that your personal information will be secure in the government's healthcare database.

People need to go to jail for this....Looks like McAfee could be right.

It's a nightmare, from conception to arm wrestling/lobbying, the huge bill that few on the planet have read in its entirety, to rollout and 'the site'.

I have looked in on the site, simply curious if my CEO's current North Carolina Major Med BC/BS cost would/could be reduced, but backed out and left: one has to put in complete data on the potential insured, to get a quote or ref.

It's like Amazon asking for your CC and SS#s while you peruse their stuff for sale. NFW...

I am on Medicare; that site and the SS site is very secure. The ACA site, not so much.

Hope you all have reg health ins through your employer...

What did the MORONS who voted for this expect?

Just walk into a hospital/Dr office/treatment center and everything is affordable/free?

I REFUSE to put ANY personal data into the Obamacare site!

hahaha... lets not throw away the baby with the birth water... is it how the saying goes?... I totally agree that the execution of this act is probably giving the comedy Central script writer material for the next 100 years!!!... but we, as mankind, had witnessed many other social experiments that had very good ideas but were ruined by incompetent execution or plain corruption... Some of you may have read Karl Marx, Fridrich Engels, even Lenin... The ideas expressed in their works was phenomenal... free education... free medical care... however, in the developed industrial countries we somehow managed to fall behind the ball... we established the "communist" bubble for very select few (read - Senate, Congress and surrounding entities), "an advanced stage of socialism" for our military, where the members of the military are given a certain amount towards "free" education and the healthcare is heavily subsidized... unfortunately, the majority of the population was left out of this "communist" bubble - you have to pay for your education, for medical... i have lived in the countries where the education and the medical services are free - if you don't like going to public school or public medical office - pay up for private care... some things should be provided by the society, like the law enforcement and protection (in most countries the cops are protectors against crooks, not enforcers of the policy - there is a difference), and if you can afford private bodyguards, sure, go for it... I truly believe that Bill Gates can get same hemorrhoids in his a$$, just like i can get it in mine... and he should be able to walk into free clinic and have it taken care of... now, if he chooses to use a private doctor, it is up to his wallet, but the society allows him to use the public services...

now, about the execution of this act... this is a joke... i really think that with so many computer experts out there, we could have had a better enrollment process... and that is even before the actual usage of those benefits... lol...

I think we need to get the pharmaceutical lobby out of DC - i have bought a medicine for myself while overseas, $5 for 20 pills... no prescription needed, that medicine has been around for last 2000 years or so... here in the US, i have to go to a doctor (ka-ching$$$), who writes out a prescription, i take it to a pharmacy, which fills it for me and charges me a copay of $15 for 20 pills... because a US company managed to patent the 2000 year old recipe. same company is not allowed to sell that same drug for more than $5 overseas... so, they just fleece america... not patriotic!!!

ACA is a govt take over of health insurance, period. All of you that defended blobama and his communist push for power should be proud. Congrats! You gave away your liberty!

Our liberty was taken from us in 1913, when the IRS was allowed to collect taxes... We just bent over and let them have it their way with us... 100 years later is a bit too late to complain that they are gropping us - we are long past that mile marker...

Ah, so sit around and do nothing since you believe it's old news, yes?
