The Obama administration says that people who have their personal information stolen through Obamacare should not be notified:
The Obama administration stopped short Thursday of threatening to veto House bills to require officials to tell people if their personal data has been compromised through ObamaCare, and to require weekly reports on the health law’s implementation.
The White House said in two Statements of Administration Policy that it opposed both bills, one of which is set for a Friday vote in the House. . .
In its second statement, the White House said officials are already working on security issues with the HealthCare.gov website. Additionally, it repeated that the legislation requiring reports on data breaches would create “costly paperwork requirements.”
Got that? They are against warning people who they have made vulnerable to identity theft, because — don’t drink a beverage right now! — it’s too expensive! They waste trillions on one boondoggle after another, but suddenly become miserly when it comes to notifying people that they screwed up and exposed them to identify theft.
UPDATE: Democrats broke ranks with President Obama to vote for this. Good. But get this:
The White House said it opposed the bill, arguing the government already has plans to tell people if their information has been compromised.
We oppose it because we plan to do it anyway. Pinky swear!
Sheesh. That’s so lame even his own party isn’t buying it.
