As many Americans express dismay at the level of information the Obama administration is secretly gathering on them, the president’s Obamacare czar is begging the public to trust her agency and the IRS to protect the personal health information they plan to collect and store for years.

“I want to assure you and all Americans, that when they fill out their [health insurance] marketplace applications, they can trust the information they’re providing is protected,” assured Marilyn Tavenner, head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in a congressional hearing this week.
