My co-blogger Avik Roy has written an excellent explanation of the privacy and security problems with the ACA “data hub,” along with a summary of the specific laws and regulations that the administration is likely to have to circumvent or ignore to get the exchanges up and running on schedule by October 1.Emily Egan has produced a graphof six key milestone deadlines have either already been missed or pushed back. The final certification is now scheduled for Monday, September 30 – the day before the exchanges are supposed to open for business on October 1.

All I have to add to that excellent discussion is what might be called a “game theory” analysis of why the administration is likely to, as Chris Holt puts it, “push forward with an on time opening even without a properly secured Hub – putting at risk the personal information of millions of Americans.”
