"John McClane: You know what you get for being a hero? Nothin'. You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah, blah, blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can't remember your last name. Your kids don't want to talk to you. You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me, kid, nobody wants to be that guy.
Matt Farrell: Then why you doing this?
John McClane: Because there's no body else to do it right now, that's why. Believe me, if there were somebody else to do it, I'd let them do it, but there's not. So we're doing it.
Matt Farrell: Ah. That's what makes you that guy. "

Words To Live By
"The era of small government is over ... government has to be more proactive, more aggressive." ( Tim Pawlenty 2006)

"You're just petty politicians, who'd sooner sign onto the wisdom of a tyrant in another country, than the demands of ticked off voters in your own." (Neil Cavuto June 2008)

“I didn’t question her patriotism. I questioned her judgment.” Mr. Cheney went on: “The point I made and I’ll make it again is that Al Qaeda functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That’s their fundamental underlying strategy, that if they can kill enough Americans or cause enough havoc, create enough chaos in Iraq, then we’ll quit and go home. And my statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, that then we will validate the strategy of Al Qaeda. I said it, and I meant it.” (Vice President Cheney NYT Feb. 2007)

"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. (Ronald Reagan March 1, 1975)

"Oh, no! First of all, if I took one vote away from a serious candidate, it would be a sin." (Al Franken Time Magazine, 9/1/03)

Daytoncare Has Its 1st Major Security Failure

Obamacare will go down in history as the worst piece of legislation ever. It was due to the ability of President Obama and Congressional Democrats to railroad the law through Congress with their 60th vote Al Franken that there was never any scrutiny, debate, or vetting of the practicality of the law. The same Government that can’t figure out how to maintain a transportation network, or realize the usefulness of the post office is somehow going to ‘fix” health insurance?

Well, in Minnesota progressives purchased similar majorities and the Governor’s office in 2012 and they not only agreed to rush a Minnesota exchange into place, they raised the bar on mandates and government intervention. That’s why I call the MNSure (Obamacare mandates state run exchange as opposed to Federal takeover) = Daytoncare.

He demanded it. He rushed it into place. He could have bothered reading this bill and realized that it was ripe with problems and shortcomings. But he doesn’t seem to read a lot of the bills he signs into law, so Minnesota citizens are now subject to human error that could expose their financial and private information to identity theft.

Republicans have warned about the chance for this, and here in Minnesota, we have our first case. 

An employee for the state’s new online health insurance exchange accidentally released confidential information on hundreds of insurance agents.

According to the Star Tribune, MNsure officials say the employee sent an email to an Apple Valley insurance broker’s office Thursday that contained Social Security numbers, addresses and other private information of more than 2,400 insurance agents.

An MNsure security manager called the insurance broker, Jim Koester, and had him delete the file from his computer hard drive. Koester tells the Star Tribune the incident raises questions about the security of MNsure client information.

Users of the exchange will need to provide confidential information to a federal hub where eligibility for public health programs or tax credits will be reviewed.

You hear ever week about how some government or financial network is breached and private data is stolen. We also have the news this week in Minnesota that other state databases are being abused and private information of Minnesotans is being misused by state workers.

Everything that an identity thief needs to destroy someone’s life is neatly packaged in a single database that was raced into operation with out any predecessors to at least improve upon. October 1st is the deadline for insurance companies to inform their existing customers about changes to their existing plans and the new rates. But here we are, 2 weeks from that deadline, and it seems that most insurance companies still don’t really know how the new health care mandates are really going to affect their operations.

If a private company was doing something like Daytoncare to their members or customers, Attorney General Lori Swanson would be slapping lawsuits on them and the local media would have choppers hovering over the Capital.
