Not secure enough? It the states that run the exchanges Senator, so secure
it.That's almost the lamest excuse I've heard so far next
to death panels.
Wow, Orrin is really stretching. Maybe he should just divert some of the
resources of the security apparatus to the issues that affect and help the
people. Do we need how many security agencies, or almost a million people with
security clearances? The GOP is getting more nonsensical by the minute. How
about some real leadership.
There was an article published yesterday describing the new invasive questions
that the Federal government will require doctors to ask their patients, even if
it's completely unrelated to the reason why you're seeing that doctor.
You could go get a cast taken off and be asked about your sexual history, how
many partners you've had, including intimate details about any things
you've done. They also want to know about any drugs you've ever taken
prescribed or not. All of this information will be put into the massive new
health exchange database which is secured behind an untested firewall (as
described here by Hatch).Just last week a contractor with access to
the exchange inadvertently sent out the private medical records for 2400 people,
which included unencrypted social security numbers, names, and medical history.
Security now?Nice excuse Orrin. What's funny is that security
for Obamacare wasn't a concern when Orrin Hatch and the Heritage Foundation
sponsored Hatchcare (Obamacare) in the 90s.
Could you imagine what our country would be like if all these repubs would have
spent just half of their energy on fixing the economy or health care system as
they have to oppose Obama?
There are lots of good reasons to de-fund Obamacare. The security issue is just
one of them.Hopefully Sen. Hatch will join with the conservative
senators who will give Mr. Obama EVERYTHING he wants in his budget - except
Obamacare.But......I'm not holding my breath. He tends to
"reach across the aisle" on most issues the democrats want. Regardless
of what he says when running for election!
So the Republicans have been stripping funds for the implementation of
Obamacare, making HHS shift funds from other programs, and now they're
concerned that it's not ready? What a crock.
I'm ready, we can draw a line down the middle of the country. You live like
Alabama and I'll live like the socialists in California. Done deal.
Don't come begging later either.
"There are lots of good reasons to de-fund Obamacare. The security issue is
just one of them"And return back to what we had before?You obviously don't have pre-existing conditions.
I agree with Senator Hatch. We're just beginning to see how the government
has intruded into our lives. NSA is listening to every conversation and
scanning every email. They have no warrant signed by a judge to do that. Does
anyone think the government will not misuse any data collected by ObamaCare?
Does anyone think that the government will provide healthcare when it will be
able to exclude anyone who has a "self-induced" illness?The
government has already shown us that it would let a 10-year-old die who had a
pre-existing condition, but needed a transplant that would save her life. To
the government, that little girl's life was unimportant. The government
did not respond until public pressure forced Kathleen Sebelius to allow that
procedure.Are we to expect that we'll have to rely on public
pressure to get the health-care that we need when the government controls life
and death?Foolish people allow the government to intrude into their
lives. They turn over their personal responsibilities to the government and
expect others to pay for their personal welfare. Senator Hatch is
La Migra -- may we see some documentation of that outlandish claim?
Orrin will do/say anything to ensure that poor Americans remain uninsured so
that their homes can be repossessed by banks, and their life-savings (what
teensy amount it is) can be sucked out of their bank accounts by the medical
@Mike RichardsI am not familiar with the case you cite about the
10-year old child with a pre-existing condition, but with respect, I don't
understand your point.Had the ACA never been passed, would her
parents' insurance company have insured her? Would they have covered her
pre-existing condition? How were conditions before the ACA better for her than
they were after?I think we can fault the ACA for not going far
enough in correcting what was wrong with the insurance industry and healthcare
coverage in general. What I don't think makes sense is
claiming that the ACA is to blame for making things worse for this little girl.
If you have information to show that the ACA forced a negative change in her
existing coverage, please say so. Otherwise, you are on my side in
arguing that the ACA needs to be strengthened and broadened.Peace.
