Obamacare Website Might Have to Be Rebuilt

NyPo reports:
The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee said Obamacare’s Web site, already a tangled mess, might need to be rebuilt from scratch to to protect against cyber-thieves because he fears it’s not a safe place right now for health-care consumers to deposit their personal information.
“ I know that they’ve called in another private entity to try to help with the security of it. The problem is, they may have to redesign the entire system,” Rep. Mike Rogers said on Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” political talk show. “The way the system is designed, it is not secure.”
Returning to questions he raised last week at a chaotic oversight hearing on Obamacare, Rogers said could be vulnerable to cyber-mischief because of a potentially leaky data-sharing arrangement between the seven federal agencies that manage different parts of Obamacare.
“That’s the weakest, most vulnerable part,” Rogers said of the data portals between agencies. “And it was clear to me they don’t have those boundaries secure.”

  4. And because it's an "emergency" it will be done with another no-bid contract, should the new crony manager decide to can the old crony contractors and steer some of what used to be our money to his favored crony friends.

  5. Today's CMS call to review technical progress on SHOP exchange started off with CMS saying they don't have any new information, and testing has yet to start for SHOP. I guess we'll still need paper forms for a while yet.
