I have learned and verified recently that in the House health care bill (Obamacare), there is a provision that would allow government access to all Americans' checking accounts and financial records, this in addition to unfettered government access to all your medical records, past, present and future. Supposedly, this would be so that the government could deduct payments from your checking account. But what if you DON'T elect to have government-run health care? Why on earth would the government need to poke its nose into our personal financial information?
Here are the provisions in the bill, and notations as to their location in the bill if you wish to read them for yourself:
Pg 58HC Bill - Government will have real-time access to individual finances & a National ID Healthcard will be issued!
Pg 59 HC Bill lines 21-24 Government will have direct access to your banks accts for electronic funds transfer.
OK, now I'm really pissed. We are supposed to be a free citizenry. We are also supposed to have some right to privacy. Where will this big-brotherism stop, and will the American public demand that it be stopped? This is socialism/Marxism at its WORST!
What are your thoughts on this proposed intrusion into our personal information? Do most Americans even care? Are we people or sheeple?
