Security experts worried that 35 state health exchange websites were vulnerable to hackers and were rated as "high risk" for security problems before ObamaCare's launch, documents obtained by Fox News show.
Fears that the health law's websites could put consumers at risk have plagued the program's rollout from the beginning, but the administration told The Associated Press that the documents offer only a partial and "outdated" snapshot of an improving situation.
The security problems cited were either resolved or are being addressed through specific actions. No successful cyberattacks have taken place, officials say.
However, the issues detailed in documents and emails provided by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee reveal broader concerns than the federal Department of Health and Human Services has previously acknowledged.
They show a frenzied behind-the-scenes juggling act by officials and contractors as the Oct. 1 deadline for new health insurance exchanges loomed.

US citizens should be able to sue the US government for forcing them to buy into a system that is a security risk.
Its not about healthcare; its about political power. That is the clear priority.
In related news:
The IRS requires the Obamacare tax be paid. So you either have to put your identity at risk on the website or be in compliance with the tax.
It’s not even political power. It’s about control, pure and simple. Their control over us.
Except.....there aren’t 35 state exchanges. There are only 23. That, plus another 8 that are co-managed with the feds, is still four short of 35. See http://www.cbpp.org/files/CBPP-Analysis-on-the-Status-of-State-Exchange-Implementation.pdf
Luckily, I didn’t sign up for ObamaCare or use IdentityTheft.gov or what ever they actually called the exchange websites.
Its difficult to control without having power. ;)

That is exactly what it is.
There are lots of types of power (political, brute force, guilt etc...). They all have one end: control
