Security failure: Hackers will steal your private medical data from Obamacare exchanges

One of the more onerous things about Obamacare is its invasiveness. In fact, it’s the biggest usurper of Fourth Amendment privacy protections that Congress has ever passed (save the provisions of the Patriot Act which allows the National Security Agency to snoop on every piece of electronic data you transmit).
Far from a law that simply “reforms” healthcare – remember, this monstrosity was 2,700 pages long – Obamacare, as we have reported, is about control – and nothing provides the government with control like information.
Along that line, provisions of Obamacare – the “Affordable Care Act” – require that you surrender vast amounts of your personal medical information. What’s more, experts are noting, there is no guarantee that your information will be adequately protected. And so far, of course, the government isn’t providing good answers for how to deal with that dilemma.
Yeah, about that ‘securing your health info’ thing…
