Once it met you, it won’t forget you. And you can forget your privacy.
All who shared information with healthcare.gov will be remembered forever. That Obamacare website stores information indefinitely about all who visited it, even if they did not buy their insurance through the website.
The data system is called MIDAS–Multidimensional Insurance Data Analytics System. Developing the website cost taxpayers over $2.1-billion, yet it still is not finished.
The practic is like what the Consumer Financial Protection Board does. Both government websites keep a mountain of personal data on millions of Americans. Goodbye, privacy! What will the feds eventually do with it? We have to guess.
And is either site more secure than the files of millions of federal workers, which got hacked through the Office of Personnel Management? Unlikely.
Experts told Congress that the longer the data is kept on government websites, the more likely it will be hacked and and privacy of millions will be breached.
