I wonder whether SCOTUS Chief Justice John Roberts, the turncoat jurist who upheld the constitutionality of ObamaCare, was aware of the fact then that the law will require patients to tell their doctors the most intimate private information about their sex lives and other sensitive life history details – details that the doctors will in turn be required to disclose to the government -- even when such information has nothing to do with why they are seeking medical treatment.
Surely he was not aware. Surely none of the nine justices were aware, for if they were I’m confident that they would have all decided in unison that this law and these outrageously statist regulations are profoundly anti-liberty, un-American, and fundamentally unconstitutional.
As we learn more and more each day that we didn’t know before about this fast approaching train wreck, Obama’s so called federal Affordable Care Act, people are finally beginning to understand just how unimaginably intrusive, mind numbingly dictatorial, and Orwellingly tyrannical it really is.
It’s beyond the pale.
These new regulations, of which no doubt not even Congress or the President were aware, require that patients be asked to disclose much more personal information than previously thought to their doctors -- including how often they have sex and how with how many sexual partners. And once they do disclose it, it won't really be personal information any more. It becomes the property of the United States government.
Yes, that’s right; according to a report in the New York Post, the federal government is apparently insisting on knowing whether you do it doggy style, missionary, or cowgirl, how often, and with exactly how many different partners. Your doctor will be asking you to reveal all there is to know about your private and personal sex life, your history of drug use, etc., regardless of whether that information is related in any way with why you came to visit.
"Once you've shared your information with a private third party, the Supreme Court has ruled that is fair game for the government," explains Christina Sandefur, a lawyer for the Goldwater Institute. That’s a clear cut violation of the doctor patient privilege doctrine as well as the fundamental privacy rights of all patients under the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution.
Doctors and hospitals that refuse to participate could be cut-off from receiving federal funds, and, more importantly, individuals who decline to share sensitive information may have to pay the fines – “taxes,” according to Justice Roberts and his Supreme Court – as provided in the ObamaCare law.
So now you know that if you don’t tell the government everything it wants to know about the most private and intimate details of your life, the feds are going to come after you for another pound of flesh, just like they do if you don’t report all your income.
It’s surreal. It’s unbelievable.
It’s beyond the pale.
