Stimulus Package Was a Trojan Horse

So just when you think that the government has done it all, another surprise is installment comes for ALL Americans. Patrick Kennedy was reassuring his constituents in Rhode Island and CNSNews that their privacy would remain intact with the new government mandated Electronic Health Record requirement. WHAT’S THAT you say?

Yep, you don’t have to let the Federal government know about all of your sexually transmitted diseases that you were treated for or the abortions they performed on you either. Nothing to worry about there. No Sir, you can “opt Out” of listing all those embarrassing procedures in the newly created GOVERNMENT DATABASE of EVERY AMERICAN’s HEALTH RECORDS!

What government database you ask? Why the one called the Electronic Health Record (ERH) requisite that was part of the infamous Stimulus package that Congress passed in February this year. What? You didn’t hear about the fact that all medical records for ALL Americans will have to become government property no later than 2014. Yep, your doctors will have to comply with this because it is Federal LAW!

If you had time to read the bill, the provision is in Title XIII and it was created for “the development of a nationwide health information technology infrastructure” that would include “the qualified electronic health record” of “each person in the United States by 2014.

The law further states that this “means an electronic record of health-related information on an individual that -- (A) includes patient demographic and clinical health information, such as medical history and problems lists; and (B) has the capacity -- (i) to provide clinical decision support; (ii) to support physician order entry; (iii) to capture and query information relevant to health care quality; and (iv) to exchange electronic health information with, and integrate such information from other sources.

Surprised yet?

How many thousands of Federal employees will have access to your personal information? WHO KNOWS!

Were we tricked into Phase I of ObamaCare under the guise of the Stimulus? Could be.

Action To Take
Call or write your representatives and ask them about it. Tell them you have major concerns regarding your PRIVACY. Ask them what assurances and security is present to protect your information. Who Has Access? It shoujld ONLY be your doctors!! Why was this part of the Stimulus. What does it have to do with bailouts and creating jobs?
