Yesterday, I testified before the US House Committee on Science and Technology in a hearing about the security of the HealthCare.org Web site. The hearing was run by the Republican members and was clearly designed to attack ObamaCare from a new front. The goal of the chair of the committee, as he plainly stated in the hearing was to shut down HealthCare.gov. I was the witness invited by the Democrats, and there were three witnesses invited by the Republicans. My goal, as always in these situations, was to remain completely non-partisan and to offer up my technical opinions. Here is a link to my submitted written testimony. The hearing was streamed on CSPAN, and is presumably available here (although streaming did not work on my Mac).
