ObamaCare’s Achilles Heel

The mere fact that the ObamaCare websites experienced so many glitches that they had to close them down for repairs may be a portent of future problems. They are obviously poorly designed and constructed. This leaves them open to hacking and fraud that could cost the government, insurers and taxpayers millions if not billions of dollars.

What is to prevent a hacker from hacking into a website and signing him/her up for a cheap program with plenty of subsidy money? What is to prevent a hacker from putting false and misleading information on a website to deliberately mislead people? What is to prevent a hacker from stealing personal information from the website and using it for criminal activity?

The last problem is a very real one which could lead to massive fraud. Hackers have been able to get into government computers in the past. The Obama Administration had three years to design and construct an Internet web system that could run glitch free. They failed. Since the glitches have been so serious, you have to wonder about how secure these sites are.

Don’t be surprised if the exchanges and/or insurers’ computer systems are hacked in the future. You can be sure somebody will do it. You can also count on Obama and the Democrats never taking responsibility for the flawed implementation of the Affordable Care Act. They have a record of denial when they fail.
