House Passes Bill On Security Of HealthCare.Gov

(Washington, DC) -- A bill involving the security of HealthCare.Gov is headed to the Senate after passage by the House. The Republican measure would require more transparency from the Obama administration about the security of personal information on HealthCare.Gov. The vote was 291-122. Nearly 70 Democrats joined Republicans in passing the measure.
Defending the legislation, Republicans cited the massive data security breach at Target stores. The Obama administration insists no serious security problems have arisen over HealthCare.Gov, the federal website for the new healthcare exchanges. The bill faces an uncertain fate in the Democratic-led Senate. The White House calls it an unnecessary and "administratively burdensome" measure.
