How many thousands of federal employees will have access to your records?


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 presumably 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."

Have you ever wanted to just go off the grid and tell them all to go to hell?

Some non entity with the right active directory role and rights will be able to just copy everything I've done and share it with, whoever?

Just look at what they tried to do with Joe the Plumber in a week.

Can't you just hear the the nauseating shushing and 'don't worry, security will be in place' smarmy gag me with a spoon reassurances which reassure absolutely no one?

This is just ALL WRONG.

Oh, Lord!

The potential for abuse in this!

At the least, identity theft. I've been down that road, and it ain't pretty.
