The Obama administration is hiding that they're running over your privacy rights," the Texas Republican said on Fox News' "America's Newsroom."

"The law specifically designed to protect your medical privacy, HIPAA, in my mind, is being violated under this law," he added, referring to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.
