Alexander Statement on GAO Report on Healthcare.gov Security Weaknesses

WASHINGTON, Sept. 16 – Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) made the following statement on the report released tonight by the Government Accountability Office detailing security weaknesses at Healthcare.gov that put Americans’ sensitive personal information at risk:

“The president and his administration launched Healthcare.gov knowing that the personal information of Americans who bought insurance through the website was not safe. Their personal information was not safe then, and it is not safe now.  Someone should be held accountable for this kind of gross mismanagement, and security must be fixed immediately before a major hacking attack does massive damage.”
