    John McAfee: Obamacare Unfixable, Scrap it!

    John McAfee to discuss the massive failings in the millions of lines of code in the Obamacare website and why he refused the Governments request for him to help fix the failed site.


    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3o-Flb5CBOo


    John McAfee, definitely not known for being anything but pro-Obama, founder of anti-virus company McAfee, Inc, speaks out on the ObamaCare exchanges:

    On The Business Network on Wednesday, computer programmer and founder of McAfee, Inc. John McAfee said the online component of Obamacare “is a hacker’s wet dream that will cause the loss of income, homes, retirement and savings for the millions, if not tens of millions, of Americans who are going to lose their identities."

    For starters, McAfee said, "The way it is set up makes it ridiculously easy for fake websites be set up, by people with very minimal knowledge and skills, to fool people to think they’re signing up for Obamacare.

    “It’s seriously bad!” McAfee said. “The (Obama) administration made a catastrophic error, in designing the program and in simply implementing the web aspect of it. I mean, for example, a 12 year old can put up a web page and claim to be a broker for this system. There is no central place where I can go and say, ‘OK, here are all the legitimate brokers, here the examiners for all of the states, and pick and choose one.’”

    “Instead, even a marginally skilled hacker can quickly and easily put a website up, make it look extremely competitive, and because of the nature of the system — and this is health care, after all — they can ask you the most intimate questions, and you’re freely going to answer them,” he continued. “What’s my Social Security number? My mortgage situation and holder? My pension plans? My birth date? My savings programs? My full and maiden names? My household income? What are my health issues?”

    According to McAfee, "There’s not a fix — and as long as it set up this way, it will be a playground for crooks who are computer hackers.

    “Here’s the problem: It’s not something software can solve,” McAfee continued. “ I mean, what total idiots put this system out there and did not create a simple central depository? Any middle-schooler would have known to do this. There should be one website, run by the government, you go to that website and then you can click on all of the agencies. This is insane! So, I will predict with 100% accuracy, along with all other computer savvy people, that there will be a devastating loss of income, nest eggs, real and personal property, and retirement programs for millions of Americans who are going to lose their identities — I mean, you can imagine some retired lady in Utah, who has $75,000 dollars in the bank, the saving of her whole life, having it wiped out in one hour because she signed up for Obamacare. And believe me, this is going to happen millions of times. Worldwide this is a crook's, a hacker’s, dream. I mean I cannot believe that they did this.”
    Starlight to pierce darkness.

    Science to overwhelm superstition.

    And, in the private sphere of the mind,
    reason and evidence to prevail.

    The title is a lie. Not surprising for a radical right winger though. That is how they roll.

    The computer program to sign up is broken and I suspect McAfee is correct about scrapping that entire system and starting again.

    The website is the tip of the iceberg of government incompetence. $400,000,000 worth of incompetence.
