I’m sure you remember all the times that Barack Obama promised to have a transparent Administration. When President Obama became President in 2009, he promised the American people an “unprecedented level of openness in government.” In a memo that he issued the day after his inauguration, Obama asserted that “the government should not keep information confidential merely because public officials might be embarrassed by disclosure, because errors and failures might be revealed, or because of speculative or abstract fears.”
Obama’s promise was simple: give the American people the truth no matter the political consequences.
That’s quite a comical promise, given the number of scandals that have plagued Obama’s presidency! Of all of the scandals, Obamacare is at the top of the list. What’s wrong with Obamacare? You name it!
The flawed rollout, the programs inherent unsustainability, the fact that the President of the United States repeatedly LIED to the American people… and the fact that all evidence suggests that the Obama administration launched the Affordable Care Act website with a blatant disregard for the security of users’ personal information!
The House of Representatives is set to vote on two major Obamacare bills that will put the power back in YOUR hands!
When the House Government Oversight Committee tried to obtain reports about the Obamacare website’s security, Kathleen Sebelius and HHS said the Republican leadership “couldn’t be trusted.”
Excuse me? Republicans can’t be trusted? Last time I checked, it wasn’t the Republicans who designed a website without any security features…
Well, Rep. Joe Pitts (R-PA) has authored a bill to force the Obama administration to care about your privacy and it will be put to a vote on Friday! I never thought we’d get to a point where Congress had to hold a President’s feet to the fire to actually care about citizens’ private information…
The Health Exchange Security and Transparency Act of 2014 would give the Administration two days to notify individuals about breaches of personal information through the online health insurance exchanges. It’s pretty sad that there needs to be a law to force to Obama administration to do the right thing…
But the truth is that there have been breaches already. Barack Obama and Kathleen Sebelius launched the Obamacare website without testing the security features. YOU were their alpha and beta testers! They considered the American people’s stolen identities just collateral damage! They told the American people to start using an unsafe website and planned to fix the “kinks” along the way.
This is unacceptable! We have seen how data breaches can ruin lives, and to think that there is no protocol in place to notify Obamacare subscribers of potential identity theft is unconscionable!
Nancy Pelosi – a.k.a. the Wicked Witch of the West – has called this bill nothing but a “partisan and ideological game.” Really, Representative Pelosi… Protecting Americans’ identities and livelihoods is just a game to you?
This isn’t about partisanship and it isn’t about scoring political points. The Health Exchange Security and Transparency Act is about protecting real Americans from the real problems that any competent Administration would have predicted and prevented prior to launching the site! HOW DARE this President play games with Americans’ identities!?
Another Obamacare bill being voted on Friday is H.R. 3362 The Exchange Information Disclosure Act. Authored by Rep. Lee Terry (R-NE), this bill would require Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius to regularly report the number of paying Obamacare enrollees, all of the Healthcare.gov metrics, the number Medicaid enrollments, and basic data and information necessary to monitor Obamacare's problems and its long-term (in)viability.
Essentially, this bill is an attempt for Congress to retake control over this horrendous law. Ever since the Tea Party Republicans retook the House of Representatives in 2010, the Obama Administration has taken steps to classify what goes on behind-the-scenes of Obamacare. H.R. 3362 reasserts Congressional authority over monitoring the monolithic law.
Ever since October, Obama has been fudging Heathcare.gov enrollment numbers. The administration included people who put insurance in their shopping carts among the number of total enrollees in order to make the number larger. It also included individuals who created an account in those numbers too!
Enough is enough! No more cooking the books and releasing information when it is politically convenient for King Obama. This common sense law forces the Administration to make enrollment numbers publically known so that this horrible healthcare law can be judged on the facts.
We all know that Obamacare won’t work and it has to be repealed. But the only way to convince the American people of this is to prove it, and the only way to prove it is to force Obama to disclose all of the details!
Usually when you hear someone tell you that a law is “common sense,” chances are they are lying to you. But these two laws really are common sense!
Anyone who uses Healthcare.gov and has their information hacked deserves to be notified, and the American people also have the right to know the truth about Obamacare’s enrollment numbers and its fundamental unsustainability!
These two laws are a shot across the bow to tell Barack Obama that the American people will NOT allow the Administration to play games with enrollees and falsify enrollment numbers!
We all must force every Member of Congress to support these two bills and once and for all tell the American people the truth about this disastrous law!
Join me in faxing Congress to support these common sense bills and putting the Obama administration on notice that it is unacceptable to play games with the American people!
