Principles in Practice, the blog of The Objective Standard, has an excellent analysis of some key elements in the health care bill now before the House, by Dr. John David Lewis. One case in point is the question ‘Will the Plan increase the government’s ability to scutinize our private affairs?’ His evaluation is:
“1.This section amends the Internal Revenue Code 2.The bill opens up income tax return information to federal officials.
3.Any stated “limits” to such information are circumvented by item (v), which allows federal officials to decide what information is needed.
4.Employers are required to report whatever information the government says it needs to enforce the plan.”
Basically, your right to privacy is gone.
Stella at Reason Pharm has another tidbit of info on this health care bill HR 3200. Evidently this bill won’t go into effect untill 2013, after the next election. Obviously, the plan is to get re-elected then bring the hammer down on the American public’s head.
