Letters: Invasion of privacy part of Obamacare

One thing to consider with Obamacare: today on CSPAN, it was revealed that your medical information, no matter how confidential you may wish it to remain, will be sent through several agencies including the NSA, IRS, and FBI, and several other electronic domains before it ever hits the Obamacare’s database.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to visualize the amount of private and personal data that the central government will be amassing on you!

Consider that everyone in the central government will know about your HIV, your SVTs, your illnesses and diseases. You may think it doesn’t matter, but may I remind you that mortgages, loans, insurance, etc. will be filtered through what you think is a secure system. Do you think you can get a mortgage with a terminal illness? Do you think your high and exalted position is assured when they find out you are suffering from a STV disease?

If you want all of your medical information to be accessible by multiple federal agencies, then please sign up for Obamacare. If you want to remain an individual who has chosen to value your privacy and freedom from those who would use your information against you, reject Obama and his hair brained idea of national health care without the slightest form of privacy.
