Privacy An Outright Fabricated Lie When Signing Up for Obamacare

Want to get really mad?

Thursday’s congressional hearings on the wreckage known as Obamacare were anything but boring.

The session ranged from questions about the contractors hired to build the Obamacare website to the committee members discovering you will have zero privacy after signing up for the federal healthcare plan.

“You have no reasonable expectation of privacy regarding any communication of any data transmitted or stored on this information system,” is how the small print puts it on the website disclaimer.

How many Americans knew that before yesterday’s hearings?

An angry Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) was provided generalized answers on that subject from some woman named Cheryl Campbell of CGI. She deflected blame to another contractor and finally admitted, under intense counter-questioning, that “She was aware of the hidden source code.”

How many Americans knew that before yesterday’s hearings?

Ironically, only a few minutes earlier, the very same Ms. Campbell testified under oath that the Obamacare website is “HIPAA compliant,” which means your medical information is protected by law.

Huh! Really?

Then along came the hearing’s chief partisan moron, Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ), who predictably attacked Rep. Barton like an angry dog calling the whole hearings process a “monkey court.”

Rep. Pallone swished his right hand as if to dismiss the outrage of the privacy issue correctly pointing out you don’t have to provide medical information, but – and this is a big but, he dismissed the fact that people are unknowingly giving up their right to privacy.

You had the feeling Frank was ready to follow the president into hell whistling while his nose kept growing.

More information coming from the hearing included the fact that getting a quote from the phantom Obamacare website, you are required to give out information on your income, place of employment, family and answer a number of questions that verify your identity.

Meanwhile, as was pointed out in the hearings, the American people have been repeatedly assured that the website is HIPAA compliant. That means they are “covered under the strictest of privacy regulations regarding medical and personal information.”

Anyone believe that now?

In essence, the hearings revealed that everything we have been told about privacy is an outright fabricated lie. This is reminiscent of the president telling us Obamacare (he calls it the “Affordable” Care Act) “Would decrease our premiums and that no one would lose their current insurance plans or their doctor.”

Gee, really Mr. President?

The entire mess should be a major news scandal, but it won’t be. Obama’s adoring media couldn’t handle the idea of informing the American public they have been royally screwed.
