NASHVILLE, Tenn., September 4 – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), the senior Republican on the Senate health committee, today released the following statement on the news that a hacker gained access and uploaded malicious software onto HealthCare.gov:

“This security failure is unacceptable—this administration has an obligation to keep Americans’ personal information safe and secure from computer hackers, and default passwords won’t cut it. In the coming days, I will be seeking information from Secretary Burwell on how she plans to guard against this kind of security breach.”
