"A quartet of experts testifying before the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology cited numerous security flaws within Healthcare.gov. They attributed the risks to the complexity of its 500 million lines of code and a rushed rollout that failed to properly test the website."

500 MILLION friggen lines of code??

This piece of SH** will NEVER work.

The most complex product ever made to date is the Chevy Volt. Its control systems has 10 MILLION lines of Code

The Boeing 787 has 7.5 Million lines of code.

500 MILLION?!!! Faghettaboutit!!

Want to be a VICTIM of IDENTITY THEFT?

Sign UP on Healthcare. gov!

"David Kennedy, the founder of TrustedSec, an online security firm, said that the risks were easy to ascertain.

“Just by looking at the website we can see that there is just fundamental security principles not being followed, things that are basic in nature that any security tester, like myself or anyone that we hire to test these sites, would actually test for prior to being released,” Kennedy, formerly of the National Security Agency and a one-time cyber-intelligence analyst for the U.S. Marine Corps, said.

The experts said the personal information of millions of Americans is at risk, including Social Security numbers, birthdays, incomes, home mortgages, and addresses. Rep. Mo Brooks (R., Ala.) called it the “mother lode for identity theft.”

An interesting report during Brian Williams show a couple weeks ago.

From the Huffington Post, "Several White House officials are speaking out against an NBC News report that said up to 75 percent of Americans who currently buy private health insurance will lose their plans under Obamacare. On Monday, a "NBC Nightly News" segment said that a large swath of Americans will not be able to keep their current health insurance policies because the plans do not meet Obamacare standards. It said that the White House knew this as far back as 2010, even though President Obama had said that people can choose to keep their current plans."

Nobody is making a big deal about MSNBC’s Bashir’s disgusting remarks because nobody watches MSNBC anymore. The most common response to the report about Bashir’s disgusting remarks? “Who’s Martin Bashir?” LOL

By the way, wonder, who's Brian Williams? LOLOL

I just looked up your insults budboy. It appears that Bashir made a public apology. Meanwhile, I've never watched the show. I watch that evil main stream media Brian Williams. But by all means, keep lying. Very typical.

"And no one at MSNBC bats an eye? This is deemed acceptable discourse?

What would MSNBC say if a conservative had talked about defecating on, say, Hillary Clinton?"

Yes, there is a difference. Usually that is what comes OUT of her mouth.

wonderwhybm must be talking about this guy:

When I first saw a headline about what Martin Bashir said, I figured it must be exaggerated.

No responsible cable news host would call for defecating on a public figure. That’s just beyond the pale, right?

But that’s exactly what Bashir did on his MSNBC show, while spewing venom at Sarah Palin.

Very classy, wonders favorite show. lol

Gotz some more for ya....

The president’s job approval rating has fallen to 42 percent in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, down 13 percentage points this year and 6 points in the past month to match the lowest of his presidency. Fifty-five percent disapprove, a record. And 70 percent say the country’s headed seriously off on the wrong track – up 13 points since May to the most in two years.

TAL KOPAN | 11/19/13 6:53 AM EST As more bad poll numbers continue to pour in for President Barack Obama, a new survey finds that if the 2012 election matchup were held this month, Mitt Romney would hold the edge with the voters.

Romney topped Obama 49 percent to 45 percent among registered voters in the Washington Post-ABC News poll released Tuesday.

"Working in his favor are pent-up demands for the program's benefits..."

How blind and foolish the sheeple are. Does the sheeple really believe that such benefits are free?

The sheeple better consider the foundation for which Obamacare was built upon. It is a foundation of lies, deception, fraud, threats, subterfuge, and one sided support.

"Barack Obama has been hammered by the botched rollout of the Affordable Care Act, with disapproval of his job performance reaching a career high, opposition to the new healthcare law up sharply and evidence of potential fallout in the midterm elections a year off.

The president’s job approval rating has fallen to 42 percent in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, down 13 percentage points this year and 6 points in the past month to match the lowest of his presidency.

Fifty-five percent disapprove, a record. And 70 percent say the country’s headed seriously off on the wrong track – up 13 points since May to the most in two years."

It is really a shame that RuinedReputation, WVDroopie, Wondrouslie, et al never had the privilege of a higher education. ( BTW, Jeff Foxworthy defines Higher education in WV as graduating from the 7th grade)

Maybe they would have taken an "Introduction to Logic" class and learned about logic fallacy.

Logical Fallacy "Tu quoque":

Literally, you too. This is an attempt to justify wrong action because someone else also does it. “My evidence may be invalid, but so is yours.”

In this case, it is NOT true, the Heritage Foundation plan WAS NOT the basis for OBamacare

The CHIEF Architect for Obamacare was Ezekial Emmanuel, Rahm Immanuel (Mayor of Chicago and former Obama Staffer) IS the architect.

He is a flaming liberal who has NO CONNECTION whatsoever to Heritage.

But when you CANNOT POSSIBLY DEFEND Obamacare, dream up a bunch of logical fallacies to feel smart.

FAAAAAAAHghettabout!

From Heritage Foundation...

"Butler’s abiding passion is health care reform. He has argued for a restructured system based on consumer choice and state-led innovation. In 1989’s “A National Health System for America,” Butler and Heritage colleague Edmund F. Haislmaier wrote a groundbreaking explanation of how distortions in the tax code created a health care system that denies individual choice and drives up costs.

When President Clinton began his bid to federalize health care upon taking office in 1993, Butler was one of the nation’s most-quoted experts on why the Clinton proposal wouldn't work. But he also consulted with lawmakers to develop an alternative reform.

At the time, liberal pundits were among those who thought the Butler approach was superior. Michael Kinsley, then editor of The New Republic, called it “the simplest, most promising, and in an important way, the most progressive idea for health care reform.”
