Alexander Statement on HHS Inspector General Report on Healthcare.gov Security Weaknesses

Posted on September 23, 2014

KNOXVILLE, Sept. 23 – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today made the following statement on the report by the Health and Human Services’ Inspector General on Healthcare.gov’s security weaknesses:

"Seems like every day we hear a new report on problems with the Obamacare website. All these reports tell us one thing—President Obama’s administration cared more about appearing to be on time than about getting this website right. That mismanagement means that nearly 300,000 Tennesseans and millions of Americans can't be confident that their sensitive personal information is secure. Tennesseans, and all Americans, deserve better.”

Last week, Alexander led Republican committee leaders in the Senate and House in calling on the Obama administration to provide details on the security of HealthCare.gov after a separate report by the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office found systemic security weaknesses in the website.
