This is getting ridiculous. Anyone who has kept up on Obamacare at all knows that Healthcare.gov has barely worked and, worse than than that, is not secure. It’s an identity thief’s dream. Web browsers ought to be identifying it as an attack site. Anyone who uses that site and plugs in their personal information is exposing themselves to identity security problems. Yet here comes HHS begging people to come back and try out Healthcare.gov again — before it has been secured.

Federal health officials say they’ve started to reach out to early HealthCare.gov shoppers who may have given up on the broken website in the first few days after the Oct. 1 launch.

“Today, we’re beginning to send messages to those consumers who had account creation issues to let them know they can try again,” said CMS Communications Director Julie Bataille. The agency is planning to send emails to about 270,000 people this week, and will continue a wave of outreach efforts.

That’s Politico reporting, and missing a big story — 270,000 is hardly the “overwhelming traffic” that the Obama administration claimed had killed Healthcare.gov.

But let’s set that aside. Healthcare.gov is not secure. HHS is not warning people that they’re using Healthcare.gov at their own risk, even though they are.

At what point will the mainstream media catch and realize that every time the Obama administration asks/demands anyone use the unsecured Healthcare.gov, it is asking them to put themselves at grave personal risk — just for the sake of propping up Obama’s failing policy?

Obama lied to get elected and to get Obamacare passed. Then he lied to get re-elected. Now his administration is selfishly putting its own flagging legitimacy above Americans’ own personal security. This ought to be a massive scandal.

ObamaCare is set up to encourage fraud, it is by design.

They want their voter base to engage in fraud so that they can hang it over their heads at election time. Nothing will give their voters skin in the game like a potential Federal fraud indictment should the Dem's ever lose power.

Hey! Healthcare.gov is a noble endeavor, and one has to break a few eggs along the way, if you want that omelet!

Uh, by the way, we need a few people to volunteer for this omelet....

Let's think about this a minute....

A normal reasonable person should trust an anonymous email solicitation encouraging them to follow a link to a website to enter their personal information?

Guess I better get on top of these offers in my spam box today:
from Issac "Approval for your new charge card giving you 2x the spending limit"
from Brendon "Are my attempts to contact you in vein?"
and Joel "DINERO NO RECLAMADO"

also I have an urgent letter from a Nigerian Prince that I've been meaning to answer.

Yes, but you're forgetting something....the people who jumped to immediately signup for Obamacare are -- how shall I say it? -- probably not that intelligent to begin with. So when they get a mail from their precious government saying that it's okay to try again.........
