President Barack Obama is running "one of the biggest con games" in U.S. history with the Affordable Care Act, says U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks.

"This guy is the deceiver-in-chief. I don't know of a more accurate way to describe [it]," Brooks, of Alabama, told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"It's very disappointing. It's very frustrating. We've got Democrats on Capitol Hill who are going to defend Obamacare no matter how bad it is . . .

"It should be quite clear that this is one of the biggest con games, one of the biggest instances of deception, that has ever emanated from the White House and from the United States Congress on the American people," Brooks said Monday.

Story continues below video.

Brooks says "obvious deceit" was used in drumming up public support to get the law passed in 2009 and 2010.

"There was deceit again going into the election, where the mantra was if you want to keep your healthcare plan, you can keep you healthcare plan, period; if you want to keep your doctor, you can keep your healthcare doctor, period; and, to boot, it's going to cost you less. Remember the pledge?" he said.

Brooks made headlines this week by advising Americans not to try to sign up for health coverage under the Affordable Care Act because it is too vulnerable to hackers.

"There are serious security risks associated with and some of the ancillary Obamacare program websites, such that I encourage American citizens to not go onto any of those websites until such time as they are secure," he said.

"If you give those websites your personal data, particularly data relating to credit cards, debit cards, you're at risk of those things being stolen, which in turn means you're at risk of being financially injured by cyber-security thieves."

Even after security concerns are addressed, problems surrounding the healthcare law will worsen, Brooks says.

"The website has been so poorly designed and operated that there aren't very many people who have actually gone all the way from A to Z . . . where you pull out your credit card and you pay for it," he said.
