WASHINGTON, D.C. (WSAU) -- One of Wisconsin’s Congressmen is not happy with how the Obamacare website collects personal information. 7th District Congressman Sean Duffy says the way healthcare.gov works is not what President Obama promised, because it forces users to give the government all of their personal information before accessing or selecting any of the insurance products. "Before Americans can shop for products on healthcare.gov, they have to put in all of their information, their address, their date of birth, their Social Security into a website that isn't secure."
Duffy has introduced legislation called the Browse Act, which he says will make healthcare.gov collect information more like other websites. "I'm introducing the Browse Act to make sure that Americans have an opportunity to search the website, look at products, and only if they find a product that they like, only then do they have to put in their personal information."
Congressman Duffy spoke briefly Friday on the House floor in support of his new bill. He believes insurance shoppers should not have to enter personal data before seeing the available coverage options.
