Once You Get Into Obama-Care You Can’t Get Out

From an irony proof Politico:

Once you get into ACA website, it’s hard to get out

By JASON MILLMAN and KYLE CHENEY | October 9, 2013

Once you finally make it into HealthCare.gov, it’s not clear how you get out.

You can’t get out. It’s ‘The Law Of The Land’!

For those who’ve busted through glitches on the federal Obamacare insurance website to create an account, there’s no clear, obvious way for consumers to delete the accounts if they choose — at least not in the current incarnation.

As the poet wrote: "The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ, Moves on: nor all your Piety nor Wit Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line, Nor all your Tears wash out a Word of it."

At the very least, you vital personal information will be entered into Obama’s data base that Maxine Waters told us would guarantee that the Democrats would never lose another election.

A POLITICO reporter used HealthCare.gov’s customer support chat to request that an account be removed, but the support agent said the request would have to be referred to an “advanced” customer service system.

That probably means an ACORN worker who can read cursive.

The option to delete account information has become a staple of online services, from Facebook to Amazon. But HealthCare.gov isn’t a private-sector business transaction. And on the federal health insurance portal, people for at least the next few weeks will have to create a basic account even to browse health plan options…

Obama administration officials declined to discuss specifics of any delete policy but a Department of Health and Human Services spokeswoman did address privacy. “We take privacy concerns very seriously and have put in place measures to protect consumers’ personal information,” said HHS spokeswoman Joanne Peters.

Which is why these exchanges went live before the data hubs were certified to be hack-proof and secure.

“We have a long track record of working with sensitive information in programs like Medicare and Medicaid.”

Oh, our sides.

Consumers do see a privacy notice before creating an account…

Okay then. That should be enough to satisfy anyone.

Pam Dixon, executive director of the World Privacy Forum, said HealthCare.gov appears to fall under the umbrella of the National Archives and Records Administration, which gives agencies leeway on record-keeping for administrative, legal, audit or other operational purposes.

She said many health care providers keep records for seven years but if the exchange policy is to keep them forever that would be “disconcerting for a number of reasons.”

What a paranoid. We want the government to be looking out for us for the rest of our lives.

  1. “We take privacy concerns very seriously and have put in place measures to protect consumers’ personal information…..”

    And I’m sure those measures you put in place work just as well as the website.

    WSJ: Tension Ratchets Up in Debt Battle

    By Carol E. Lee, Janet Hook, & Patrick O’Conner

    WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama warned Tuesday of “economic chaos” if a political stalemate causes the U.S. to no longer be able to pay its bills, and said he would accept even a short-term increase in the borrowing limit to give lawmakers time to negotiate.

    “Extend the debt ceiling. If they can’t do it for a long time, do it for the period of time in which these negotiations are taking place,”
    Mr. Obama said.
    “They can attach some process to that that gives them some certainty that in fact the things they’re concerned about will be topics of negotiation,
    if my word’s not good enough.”

    The panel is instructed to set levels for annual appropriations, also known as discretionary spending, as well as recommend “reforms” in entitlement programs.

    Mr. Obama rejected the idea, saying the instructions meant the committee would consider Republican spending-cut proposals without Democratic ideas for raising revenue.

    “I don’t know why Democrats, right now, would agree to a format that takes off the table all the things they care about, and is confined to the things that the Republicans care about,” the president said.

    “For the president and Harry Reid to want to humiliate Republicans is wrong,” he said. “And for Republicans not to understand that the American people—70% of them—disapprove of us is something they ought to appreciate more.”

    Mr. Obama said the Treasury is exploring contingency plans for possibly prioritizing payments if the U.S. borrowing limit is exceeded.

    He drew a dire picture of the consequences of failing to raise the debt ceiling, saying that “every American could see their 401(k)s and home values fall, borrowing cost for mortgages and student loans rise, and there would be a significant risk of a very deep recession.”

    Republicans had best not cave or there will be no return; literally

      I repeat it’s crucial Republicans not cave, because there is a minority of Americans who want ObamaCare, and the majority of them believe it’s free health care and Obama’s false statements that went around the world

      CHRIS CHRISTIE ANNOUNCES HE CAN SERVE AS GOVERNOR AND RUN FOR PRESIDENT

      “I CAN WALK AND CHEW GUM AT THE SAME TIME” – Chris Christie – 2013

      Politico: Chris Christie makes point on Obamacare

      By Elizabeth Titus – 10/8/13

      “I don’t agree with the law, but we’ve complied with it, and that’s the job you have as governor,” Christie said at a gubernatorial debate at William Paterson University in Wayne. “You don’t always agree with every law you have to enforce, but I’ve enforced this one, and I’m proud of our record on health care.”

      Christie sailed through the first debate against his Democratic challenger, state Sen. Barbara Buono.

      “The fact is after 2017, I would be looking for a new job anyway, so as we go forward I’m going to continue to do my job the best way I possibly can and I am not going to declare tonight, Kristine, for you or for anybody else that I am or I am not running for president,” Christie said.

      “I can walk and chew gum at the same time,” he added.

      Both candidates said they would be open to releasing medical records if voters had questions about their physical suitability for the job.

      Buono assailed Christie on issues ranging from property taxes to jobs to his handling of Superstorm Sandy recovery during the hour-long debate.

      Responding to an early question on gay marriage, the lawmaker criticized Christie’s position that voters, not elected officials, should decide the state’s law on gay marriage.

      “My daughter, who’s openly gay, is not a political agenda,” Buono said.

      In a statement provided by the Buono campaign, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida blasted Christie on social and economic issues.

      “In Barbara Buono, New Jersey will have a governor who always reflects their mainstream values, not just when the cameras are rolling,” Wasserman Schultz said.
