Lots of enthusiasm but very little regard for security
Gasp, such savings to use the cloud for government services! No word, however, on the security of using it. Just imagine the ramifications of having your personal medical/DMV, etc. data hijacked along the same lines as your credit card was at Target, Michael's and the thousands of other (known) data breaches that have already occurred so far.
