This, I think, marks the end of doctor/patient confidentiality; and I seriously wonder as to the integrity of attorney/client privilege.
Whoever pays them employs them. That's the way it's been since they used to make house calls in the 1950's.
I was even discussing the confessional with my parents.
What if the priest is carrying a phone with him.
He may be unwittingly allowing “others” to listen in without knowing it.
Ladies and gentlemen, we've arrived at a point where the government has violated The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures. No Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Since the government has no Constitutional right to seizure of our personal information, it has no right to act on the basis of information gained unlawfully.
Following the Constitution used to be engrained in American Citizens, such that they would do things in accord therewith as a matter of course. Going forward, this will be coerced and acquiesced to, as the GOP has acquiesced to their subservient, unable-to-impeach status.
Physicians are hereby ripped from their previous relationships of confidentiality and following the Constitution and turned into Constitution-abusing snitches, doing great harm to their patients. They should rebel, which of course under the NDAA will be considered a "belligerent act" (See belligerentact.org).
Or are We the People going to do something about it?
A person still has a right to refuse any medical treatment that they want. My plan is to stand on that right along with the 5th amendment right.
I started this years ago. When they ask me to step on the scales, I just look them straight in the eye, smile, and say no thank you, I’ll pass on that.
It won't matter after Obamacare.
Ronald Reagan nailed it perfectly when he shared this observation. You cant socialize the doctors without socializing the patients.
