The Obamacare Website's ( Security Flaws are an Invitation to Foreign Hackers

Security gaps in are an "invitation" to foreign hackers trying any way they can to access sensitive information, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee told 
"This is incompetence at an epic proportion, and they need to shut it down, fully test it for security vulnerabilities, get it right -- then reopen it," Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., said Monday, in an interview with Fox News contributor Mallory Factor. 
Rogers has escalated his warnings about the ObamaCare website's security, as Obama administration officials claim the site's myriad "glitches" are being fixed. 
But Rogers said the site "doesn't even meet minimum security standards." 
Factoring in that the law requires many congressional staffers and other government officials to sign up through the exchanges -- albeit through the exchange run by the District of Columbia -- he said: "If you're a foreign intelligence service, that would be an invitation you couldn't pass up." 
Rogers pointed to the concerns with as he pushed, more broadly, for Congress to approve sweeping new cyber security legislation. 
That legislation passed the House back in April, but since has been sitting in the Senate. 
Rogers, in the interview, blamed Senate Democratic leaders as well as the Obama administration for the hold-up. 
"This is the biggest national security threat that we face that we are not prepared to handle," Rogers said.

A hackers dream...I wonder how many hackers out there are trying to break in JUST BECAUSE Obama is behind it?

He's not exactly the most popular person in the world....THAT alone puts everyone's personal information at risk.
