By JAVIER MANJARRESCongresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s recently held an identity theft town hall meeting aimed at informing constituents about how criminals are becoming more brazen in their efforts to steal your assets, by way of stealing your identity.
During the Q & A portion of the town hall, Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz addressed the issue of replacing the Medicare number with random identity numbers, instead of continuing to use Social Security numbers.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz
