The issue isn't federal agencies, it's the use and misuse of the SSN by those in the private sector that deserves having hearing.

We need quantum computing and quantum routers that can force authentication on every packet, along with a quantum cloud that guarantees nobody is anonymous or spoofed on the Internet. This way hackers are easier to track down by law enforcement. Also websites should have quantum computing capabilities that question whether or not a user normally visits that type of website. We need more powerful computers and routers. Especially routers.

It is public when a government agency makes the citizen's social security number public allowing identity theft and subsequently money laundering.
