Security at the Obamacare Site?

Security, we found today wasn't very good if at all at the Obamacare site. This isn't surprising for a variety of reasons. The Biggest single reason is new laws and edicts kept having to be implimented within the programming. Unless any programmer has access to all the needs of a program before he, she or they  write it, it is bound to be a complete mess and vulnerable to viruses and outside hackers as a result. But, edicts and laws kept coming down the pike without end and this was sure to really screw things up especially security to the site. Then on top of that they only had 2 weeks to debug the site which really isn't enough under these circumstances. So, what do they have "A security vulnerable and hackable site with people's social security numbers, addresses and potentially health conditions hackable by any hacker governmental or otherwise of literally any nation on earth not just this one.

So, what I would recommend the people do just for security reasons is not to visit the Obamacare site and instead either register through Medicaid whose site likely is much more secure or to go to an Insurance Broker (who has access to literally all plans from all insurance companies in your state).

(At least until the Obamacare site has it's security up to a much higher level than it does now).

Most people going on this Obamacare site are lower income people like College students or people on fixed incomes at present. So, hopefully their private information won't be hacked and sold to the highest bidder worldwide.

If you want to see a humorous movie that goes into this in a lot of detail see:
