Health care site made me feel violated

Recently I went into the Healthcare.com site to see what Obamacare options were offered in comparison to my present insurance program.

To gain entrance, one had to give name, address, age, and other personal information. Within minutes, my phone rang; a person, identifying himself as a representative from Medicare, asked if I needed help with the information I was seeing on my computer screen.

Who was this, Big Brother? I didn't ask for, or want, his help and wondered what he would now do with my personal information.

Violated? You bet I was.
