As Govt takes over healthcare, privacy disappears

By | February 2, 2013

In England, they’ve had government healthcare for quite some time. Now, doctors will be required to report alcohol consumption and other health factors to the government.

United States Democrats promised that a government administered health care system would not result in a government that would collect and use information on American citizens – the same promise the English government gave to their citizens.

Suddenly, the U.K. government will require that general practitioners (family doctors) to give lifestyle details to the National Health System – the government.

Once the federal government is on the hook for the administration of citizen health, it has no choice but to acquire information that it can use to minimize its exposure to its naive expectation – that somehow, centralized healthcare is cheaper AND more effective. It cannot be both.

When government takes over healthcare, it does not get less expensive, it only gets less private.

    This is already going on here. Observe the significant uptick in invasive questioning about personal lifestyle, and what goes on under your roof? Pay attention, it IS happening. Additionaly, what you think are simple, chit-chat conversations with your doctor about what you did earlier this week or intend to do next week ARE actually being entered into your medical records. Benign subject matter that has ZERO to do with your health is being deliberately put into a database by your doctor or their aide.

    Be careful, folks, because it’s already here.

    Gee, I *wonder* if homosexuals will then be charged higher insurance rates for having an AIDS-spreading “lifestyle”…ya think?!?

    All your lifestyle are belong to us.
