    Our government monitors every phone call, but they don't protect our identity. Then there is the web problems from Obamacare, where we are required to put our personal information and identity on the internet, where it is not even close to protected from identity thief hackers.

    The real lesson of 2013 is you can't trust the government, or the words of the president. I sure wish I had my $2500 savings on health care, but I am spending at least that much more instead.

    Net loss $5K.

    In response to the two, to this point, rather lame comments let me say that if there ever was an arena where government meets enterprise - it is the internet. The internet itself is the creation of both.

    The internet offers great promise - the possibility of worker owned enterprises for example.

    The internet offers great dangers - security, which you have already addressed.

    One last shot on the ACA rollout. It should come as no surprise that the ACA birth was trouble plagued. The failure rate for new large systems is about 50%! Give the ACA a bit more time to work (though I dislike as much of the ACA as the conservatives here).

    The last thing anyone should want is the government stepping in.

    The largest threat to our security and freedom is not your computer but your government!
