Big Brother Is Reading Your Medical Records

See, this is scary.

As part of its implementation of Obamacare, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has proposed a new federal regulation to require private health insurance companies to give the government all of the health records of every person they insure. The rule is shrouded in the usual bureaucratese, but, as Huelskamp pointed out in a Washington Examiner op-ed, “abstract terms are used to distract from the real objectives of this idea: no matter which ‘option’ is chosen, government bureaucrats would have access to the health records of every American — including you.”

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius claims the government must have the records in order to evaluate the performance of health insurers. Aside from the absurdity of having federal health bureaucrats judge the job performance of anybody else, the proposal raises a gigantic red flag: Federal and state governments have proven repeatedly in recent years that they are all but incapable of fully protecting sensitive records of individuals.

Seriously, who can read this and think Obamacare was a good idea? How much more Orwellian nonsense is there?

    What this amounts to is the Next step into governmnet’s control over our lives-that is, THEY will be able to have their panels DECIDE, who gets life saving trauma care and who
    Does NOT. These are the “death panels” that a while back was being stirred up. If a person that is “not the right age(too old) for life saving, then the ‘PANEL’ will decide it is
    NOT going to happen. We all know, the government can’t even keep their OWN records,
    so why would they want ours? Simple- THEY WILL MAKE OUR LIFE OR DEATH DECISIONS, AS IT WILL BE IN THEIR HANDS, AND “NOT IN OUR DOCTOR OR FAMILY’S”

    “WELCOME TO OBAMA-SCARE” FOR SENIORS”…..Jo

    Today most state laws allow another individual to view your private information using your social security number and date of birth. This is a problem. If the government want to really clamp down , they need to implement criminal penalties for individuals and businesses that steal this information even if there is no profit. http://www.facebook.com/AdvocatePrivacy
