Ignoring security warning, go figure.

The bad blood between Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Ca.) and ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) came to a boil during a Thursday hearing on ObamaCare.
The healthcare officials called to testify served primarily as a sounding board for both parties. Republicans accused the administration of obstructing its ObamaCare investigation and ignoring security warnings, while Democrats accused Republicans of recklessly handling sensitive material and cherry-picking data to mislead the public.
Issa made a memo from the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) director Teresa Fryer the central focus of the hearing. The two sides have been at loggerheads at over the importance of the memo for more than a month.
“The administration has steadfastly denied the existence of security problems, shortcomings, or the lack of security testing,” Issa said according to prepared remarks. “For many Americans — myself included — it seems to defy common sense that a website plagued by functional problems has security functioning at a near perfect level.”
