I just saw a short video segment of the House of Representatives hearing into concerns for the privacy healthcare.gov

In it, there's a comment in the code that states that you have no reasonable expectation of privacy - a statement that is in direct contravention of HIPA.

A representative of the contractor has admitted knowledge of its inclusion in the source, yet claims that the responsibility for it lies elsewhere, which it may or may not in a legal sense.


But my question is: If the programmer that inserted it knew it was at odds to HIPA, should they also themselves be held to account?
