IRS agents have violated the medical privacy of 10 million people
“Much of the talk in the news this week regards the appalling scandal involving IRS targeting of conservative non-profit groups. So it’s worth noting that Obamacare dramatically expands the authority and the scope of the Internal Revenue Service. Two provisions in particular will require thousands of new IRS agents, and billions in funding, to enforce: the law’s individual mandate, forcing most Americans to buy government-approved health insurance; and its employer mandate, forcing most employers to take money out of workers’ paychecks to purchase costly health insurance on their behalf. Here’s why these two provisions are so intrusive, and why the only solution to the problems they create is to repeal them.”
Courthouse News reports:
“A lurid but vague class action accuses corrupt and abusive IRS agents of stealing 10 million people’s medical records without a warrant – including ‘intimate medical records of every state judge in California.'”
“‘These medical records contained intimate and private information of more than 10,000,000 Americans, information that by its nature includes information about treatment for any kind of medical concern, including psychological counseling, gynecological counseling, sexual or drug treatment, and a wide range of medical matters covering the most intimate and private of concerns,’ the complaint states.”
“Corrupt and abusive IRS agents”? Isn’t that being awfully redundant?
Technically, these particular IRS agents were probably hired before Obamacare was passed. But still, Obamacare does call for thousands more just like them to be hired, all in the name of “health care.”
I always thought that providing health care to 30 million additional people would involve hiring new doctors, not new IRS agents. But Obama is a lawyer and a community organizer – not a doctor, scientist, or logician – so from his point of view, it is IRS agents, and not doctors, who will be the real solution to the health care crisis.
