Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) says he’s more concerned about HealthCare.gov’s problems today than he was last week.
"It was very clear to me in the hearing that they don’t have an overarching solid cybersecurity plan to prevent the loss of private information,” he said Sunday morning on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Rogers, who’s chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, is also a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee and sat in on the Thursday hearing in which the ObamaCare website contractors testified.
“I’m even more concerned today than I was last week,” he said.
Host Candy Crowley asked Rogers what he thinks of Department of Health and Human Services officials saying the website will run properly by the end of November.
HHS may have to redesign the entire system because it’s not secure, Rogers said.
Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will testify before the Energy and Commerce Committee Wednesday on the website’s technical issues.
“Kathleen Sebelius is obviously not taking accountability for this,” said Rep. John Fleming (R-Fla.) on “State of the Union.”
The congressman is among a number of Republican lawmakers calling for her resignation. He said he warned ObamaCare would be harmful from the beginning.
“Now, after three weeks, we’re beginning to see those damaging effects.”
