Here's the perfect example of how big business operates.......

Target does a lousy job of protecting it's customers credit information causing thousands of people to scramble to keep the bank or credit accounts safe from hackers.

So to everyone who may see their bank accounts wiped out, or whose credit cards get maxed out..... Let's offer you a paltry 10% off one single item during the one weekend before Xmas!

Remember how this works when you hear a Republican say that the cure to health care in this country is to limit medical liability..... When your doctor amputates the wrong leg, they should only have to offer you 10% off the cost of doing it right the next time. No need to sue them......

You won't have a leg to stand on!

OK, the government does a lousy job of protecting it's potential customers trying to access their crappy health care exchange site and leaving them open to hackers and fraud aplenty, to say nothing of coming away unable to purchase the product they came in for, and the best the government can do for them is say, "shut up and accept that we f'd up", and in the meantime we'll extend the time before you're forced to get back on our crappy, dangerous site and have your personal information put of for grabs again.

Remember how this works when you hear a mind-numbingly ignorant government lackey progressive voter tell you that the government is capable of handling your health care (even though they can't even manage a website with unlimited taxpayer funds)- they just need to be allowed to do a little bit more and then everything will be great.

Your missing leg will be the least of your problems!

It's fairly simple...if you charged anything at Target, between 11-27 and 12-15......to protect yourselves simply call your credit card company, and request new cards...then shred your old one.....

News this morning now says that up to 110 million customers may have had the personal information compromised. Not just credit card info, but names, home address, phone numbers and other private information......

I understand that Dingbat wants Topix turned into a bash Obamacare only site, but until he can prove that HHS has any customers hacked, let alone 100 million of them, this seems like a bigger story!

So instead of protecting folks signing up on the aca website via HIPAA requirements, let's wait until the website gets hacked before we become concerned...got it...

Target at least had some security in place but still got hacked. It's a well known fact that the aca website was built in great haste and obviously didn't perform as required and had many security aspects overlooked as the main concern was to bring it online.
It's only a matter of time Bob...wake up.

The only reason you think it's such a big deal is because you are hoping to distract people from all the deceptions this administration is trying to foist on the American people. Of course, you get credit for being such a good little lemming for the Obama nation.

You need to be able to apply, qualify, and get a card Bobbie...... Why does this piss you off when you don't qualify????? You are off the mark with a lower credit rating.....

Target sucks. They rabidly promote homosexuality in their stores and they're pro-abortion. I don't shop there.

No issues here but I can sure tell you have no counter argument to the fact that HIPAA law is applicable to the obamacare website. You certainly have not supplied any notation in the HIPAA law that gives the obamacare website a pass.
The best you've got is a childish mention of "panties wedged" and "mental issues".
This is very common when one party (you) have no knowledge of the topic at hand.

It's only a matter of time before some for profit drug company, doctor's office, or hospital computer system gets hacked, exposing who knows how many people's medical information these companies are allowed to maintain.

We can only assume that the same patriots who have been wetting their pants at the thought that the government isn't protecting their information, will then claim that liberals are holding a boot to the throats of some poor member of the Chamber of Commerce!

Right now the main "open door" is the obamacare website not being HIPAA Certified and compliant.
I'm not sure why anyone would support such a dangerous website...are you?

Has anyone else noticed that some people are so fearful that their entire life is now surrounded by one subject only?

From the moment they wake up each morning, their whole day is ruined by this unfounded fear.

A company can put millions of people's financial security at risk, and this coward can't acknowledge that fact, because he can't get past what might happen, and to date, hasn't happened.

He is the perfect republican voter.

Bobbie, those of us that have means are seeing the govt grab our labors and give it to you. Italy has 70% income taxes..... Business is shutting down..... Socialism has never worked anywhere...... Newsweek is dead...... Your utopia comprehended is a failure....... Oh, Bing! Fries are ready so get after it.......

Has anyone else noticed that some people don't really care what the current administration does as long as it's "not Bush"? This administration has cost the American taxpayer untold millions but since it's not Bush, all is good.

I don't shop Target, but this is situation is a mess. We live in a global economy and not one of our personal information is safe. Hackers will continue to keep updated with the software. Our health information is not safe either. Be it the Obamacare web site or the fact that our medical records are now all being turned into electronic medical records to be shared with our other medical carriers. There will come a time when that is going to be breached at some point.
