Explaining Away “No Reasonable Expectation of Privacy” in ObamaCare

Sheesh! We can’t even expect to be “reasonably” protected under this administration. When you sign up for ObamaCare on the Healthcare.gov website, assuming you want to, and assuming you can find a way to do so, note that there a source code that doesn’t show to you in any public form. How many of you routinely check the “View Source” on any page?


“You have no reasonable expectation of privacy regarding any communication or data transiting or stored on this information system.”

Though not visible to users and obviously not intended as part of the terms and conditions, the language is nevertheless a part of the underlying code for the “Terms & Conditions” page on the site.

After creating an account on Healthcare.gov, users are asked to click an “I accept” button under some routine Terms & Conditions prohibiting unauthorized attempts to upload information or change the website.

Once users click the button, they may proceed to shop for insurance and enter detailed personal information.

However, when the Terms & Conditions page is visible, the hidden sentence mentioned above along with several others can be seen by using a web browser’s “View Source” feature.  A screen grab below shows the visible Terms & Conditions page along with a simultaneous view of the code underlying it: View the terms and conditions (see the screen grab) and what you see or do not see at The Weekly Standard All emphasis above is mine.

It’s fraud, friends, with every intent to commit fraud – on you.
