 A family member recently sent me an email titled Sex, Drugs, and Obamacare!

(It’s not a sequel to the movie Sex, Lies and Videotape…)

It threw me for a minute until I read about physicians taking a social history from their patients-which is perfectly ‘reasonable and customary’. So I put the email in my Trash bin. Then I came across this column in Vanity Fair, which gave the source for my relative’s  latest fictional headline. Augh-The New York Post!

Betsy McCaughey says that our new electronic medical records –EHR‘s (created courtesy of Bush 41) will allow our physicians to enter in our social histories in our EHR’s and then the information will get shared with the IRS and the NSA. Described by website mediaite.com as a demagogue, McCaughey asserts that our private, protected social histories in our EHR’s will ultimately be fodder for data miners. She is also the one who coined the ‘phrase’ death panels.

Now, I wouldn’t put anything past the NSA at this point, but isn’t the place to handle  this in another piece of legislation, regulating the NSA itself or by filing a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act request) ?

Misuse of citizens’ big data by the government is a bigger issue than 15% of the economy! It deserves more attention than cheap chain emails from people with no real knowledge of the goals of the ACA.
