Oh, By the Way, The Healthcare.gov Has One Function It's Performing Admirably: Sending Your Private, Personal Information to Strangers

Oh, yes.

Worse and worse and worse.

Thomas Dougall has a warning for Obamacare website users: Your "information may not be secure."

Dougall, a South Carolina attorney whose personal information was misdirected by the Obamacare website to a stranger in another state, says "I just want my personal information removed from what is an unsecured system." His adult daughter also wants her information removed from the Obamacare site but, so far, no one from HHS has answered their requests for help.

The entire saga began over the weekend when the Heritage Foundation reported that Justin Hadley, a North Carolina man, had logged in to his Healthcare.gov account and discovered personal information for two other people, one of them was named Thomas Dougall. Local news station News 48 interviewed Dougall Saturday.

"We're told constantly that it's a secure system and it's not, obviously," Dougall told 48 News. He added, "they have no procedure whatsoever to handle security breaches." News 48 contacted HHS for comment but only got an email asking for further information.

Sexton interviewed the man, but I'll direct you to the post to read his update as to whether or not Team Obama has reacted with vigor and seriousness to this serious violation of this man's privacy. (Spoiler alert: It's not good.)

The glitches just keep on comin'.

See John's Post Below. We had a miscommunication and I wound up stomping him.
