CMS Administrator Marilyn Tavenner Continues Obama’s Misinformation Campaign
It seems Marilyn Tavenner takes after President Obama.
During her testimony Tuesday before the before the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, Tavenner, said that the Obamacare website is secure, even though that has already been proven false:
When consumers fill out the online application, they can trust that the information they provided is protected by stringent security standards, and that the technology underlying the application process has been tested and is secure.
She must have forgotten to read the news this morning, like CBS News article entitled, “Obamacare website security tests never finished before launch,” which stated:
A CBS News analysis finds key tests to ensure the security and privacy of customer information on troubled Obamacare website fell behind schedule.
A deadline for final security plans was delayed three times over the summer, and final top-to-bottom security tests never were finished before the launch.
All of that is adding to concerns about the safety of personal information on the site.
Technology experts say this website did not go through proper security testing before it went live on October 1 — and they’ve shared with CBS News several flaws that could expose personal information. Now we’re starting to see real-like examples of what can go wrong.
She also clearly did not inform herself of the startling story that Heritage broke of the North Carolina man who was accidentally provided access to a South Carolina man’s personal eligibility information via HealthCare.gov:
Justin Hadley logged on to HealthCare.gov to evaluate his insurance options after his health plan was canceled. What he discovered was an apparent security flaw that disclosed eligibility letters addressed to individuals from another state.
“I was in complete shock,” said Hadley, who contacted Heritage after becoming alarmed at the breach of privacy.
Hadley, a North Carolina father, buys his insurance on the individual market. His insurance company, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, directed him to HealthCare.gov in a cancellation letter he received in September.
And she also must have missed the follow up on that story on Fox News.
