ANOTHER REASON WHY DEMOCRATS’ SOCIALIZED MEDICINE PLAN SUCKS: PRYING EYES UP YOUR FISCAL RECTUM…

As though “end-of-life-choices” (aka Death Panels), “cost-containment” (aka rationing), and the “public option” (aka socialized medicine) were not bad enough, CBS News has uncovered yet another pitfall with the 1,000 page+ Obama-Pelosi-Reid health care plan (HR 3200) and that is the provision that states that the Internal Revenue Service must divulge your tax records to the “Health Choice Commissioner” (aka Health Czar). According to CBS News:

Section 431(a) of the bill says that the IRS must divulge taxpayer identity information, including the filing status, the modified adjusted gross income, the number of dependents, and “other information as is prescribed by” regulation. That information will be provided to the new Health Choices Commissioner and state health programs and used to determine who qualifies for “affordability credits.”

Section 245(b)(2)(A) says the IRS must divulge tax return details — there’s no specified limit on what’s available or unavailable — to the Health Choices Commissioner. The purpose, again, is to verify “affordability credits.”

Section 1801(a) says that the Social Security Administration can obtain tax return data on anyone who may be eligible for a “low-income prescription drug subsidy” but has not applied for it.

Over at the Institute for Policy Innovation (a free-market think tank and resumably no fan of Obamacare), Tom Giovanetti argues that: “How many thousands of federal employees will have access to your records? The privacy of your health records will be only as good as the most nosy, most dishonest and most malcontented federal employee…. So say good-bye to privacy from the federal government. It was fun while it lasted for 233 years.”

Yes. America was fun for most of 233 years. Too bad “change” is trying to control it.
