Protect Privacy or Accept Government Control
Citizens Council on Health Freedom ^ | 3-5-14 | Twila Brase

He who holds the data makes the rules. If you haven't figured this out, it's almost too late. Obama knows it. In 2009, his team mandated electronic medical records and $27 billion to make it happen as a "foundation" for health care reform.

If you wonder whether medical privacy is important, check out Minnesota, where the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and the Democrat-controlled legislature plan to eliminate all medical privacy rights. Bills being fast-tracked include:

GENETIC GRAB: Repeal of hard-won parent consent requirements for government storage, use, and sharing of Baby DNA and newborn (genetic) screening test results for genetic research. The forces supporting repeal (including the MN Medical Association) have boatloads of lobbyists meeting with legislators.

CONTROL OF DOCTORS: Creation of a new tracking database on heart attack patients and a mandate that government require physician use of "evidence-based" treatment protocols, as defined and determined by MDH.

HEALTH EQUITY: MDH-tracking of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability, language, socioeconomic status and more for the purpose of "advancing health equity" and "eliminating health disparities."

The threat to patient privacy and control is nationwide. Most people have no idea how little they have and how much is being taken away. HIPAA does not protect you; it's an "anti-privacy" law and rule. Most conservative organizations aren't yet tuned into the issue. And too many elected Republicans, listening to Chambers of Commerce controlled by health plans, think our medical data should be shared with the government to create a market in "health care quality" and physician "value."

Without medical privacy we have a better chance to get insight on Obama’s health history which probably contains info on that skull surgery scar, his psychiatric illnesses, and effects of drug use.
