WILL HE TAKE ANY CRITICISM SERIOUSLY?

witchConsider the fact the IRS is now the enforcement arm of Obamacare. Consider the fact our government, a clear violation of the spirit of the 4th Amendment of the Constitution, now has access to your medical history. If the government already has your personal records, why would they need a search warrant? Instead of getting a judge to approve of a search warrant, our government has done an end run. The government requires us purchase medical insurance and to put our medical records in an Internet accessible database. How is access controlled? Well, we have already had problems.

Federal agencies have already encountered difficulties preserving the integrity of Americans’ sensitive information. Earlier this year, a medical provider in California sued the IRS for improperly seizing 60 million records of 10 million Americans. Yet under Obamacare, the IRS and other federal agencies will hold more new powers and have access to even more of Americans’ personal health and financial information.

In its mad rush to implement its unworkable law, the Obama Administration has taken a slapdash and shoddy approach to Americans’ personal security. Given these stakes, the choice for Congress could not be clearer: Congress should preserve Americans’ privacy by refusing to spend another dime implementing Obamacare. (from here)

Moreover, even if government bureaucrats can be constrained to keep their noses out of our medical records, they will still have access to much of our personal data (see Obamacare poses security threat: Column). So some in Congress want to talk to the IRS and see how they are going to protect our privacy.

Sarah Hall Ingram, who oversees the Internal Revenue Service role in the health-care overhaul, hasn’t been “consorting with the Devil,” she testified at a hearing on Wednesday.

But Republicans suggested she has been doing a few other bad things, notably discussing taxpayer information in emails with the White House, contrary to IRS rules. That’s clear from the fact that the IRS itself redacted the taxpayer identities before turning over the email conversations, citing confidentiality rules, lawmakers said.

“You shared, at least by someone’s definition … personal IRS taxpayer information with the White House,” said Rep. Jim Jordan (R., Ohio). Now under the Affordable Care Act, “Americans have to give personal information to the IRS … That scares a lot of people.” (continued here)

So what questions does our favorite congressman, Democratic Rep. Gerald Connolly, have for Sarah Hall Ingram? To see how seriously concerned he is about our rights, you have to see this.
