Daines Calls for Action to Protect Montanans’ Personal Information on Obamacare Website

Representative Steve Daines commended the House of Representatives on Friday for the passage of the House Exchange Security and Transparency Act of 2014.

This bill ensures that Americans are informed if their personal information was jeopardized while using the healthcare website, healthcare.gov, within two business days.

“Problems with this website went well beyond error messages and Americans being unable to successfully purchase insurance,” Daines said. “We’ve learned that security risks to the Obamacare website were limitless long before the website’s official launch. Worse, the Obama administration knew of these risks before the October 1 planned launch. Rather than fixing the problem, they consciously allowed Americans to put their personal information at risk.”

Daines said the Obama Administration’s failure to secure this website in advance of its launch is absolutely unacceptable.

“As someone who has worked in the technology sector, I know that if a private company launched a website with these kind of issues, the company would have gone under,” Daines said. “People would be fired.”

The Healthcare Exchange Security and Transparency Act now heads to the Senate for further action.
