The useful idiot retort to this is Big Gov hacks can get all your info if they really want it, but the fact that hacks behave badly is no reason to make it acceptable.
This administration just keeps lowering the bar on what is ethical behavior and his useful idiots just follow along. The really are a mindless group.
The last thing we want is for government hacks to have more information on us. I have no doubt the Obama administration "encouraged" the NSA and IRS to target conservatives. They did not have to directly instruct them as they are all a part of the same sick mindset. I am sure these useful idiots came up with the ideas, knowing what they had at their disposal. Then without a moral compass in this administration telling them to avoid all such behavior, they saw it as a green light.
And now with Obamacare, they want to have the queen mother of all databases which WILL BE USED to target political opponents for harassment. This administration already used so-called secure data to target their political enemies in 2012. It will get worse, much worse.
