The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

~ 4th Amendment to the Constitution

Did you hear about the Obamacare data hub? You are going to love it! Picture a big train station with every feared government agency traveling through transporting all your personal information which they can access and distribute as they see fit. That’s the the data hub.

Investors reports that the hub, established for Obamacare eligibility determination and management, is the train depot for everyone’s personal information and will all be controlled by the BIG government.

The trains coming into the hub station will be the Social Security Administration, the much-trusted IRS, the even-more trusted Department of Homeland Security, the Veterans Administration, the Office of Personnel Management, the Department of Defense and the Peace Corps (I know, right?).

Data that will go through the hub are Social Security numbers, income, family size, citizenship and immigration status, incarceration status, financial information, enrollment status in other health plans et al.

You will no longer have control over this information. They can do what they want with it.

Do you still doubt that Obamacare was about control???

According to the filing, the hub is a new “system of records” that will store names, birth dates, Social Security numbers, taxpayer status, gender, ethnicity, email addresses, telephone numbers on the millions of people expected to apply for coverage at the ObamaCare exchanges, as well as “tax return information from the IRS, income information from the Social Security Administration, and financial information from other third-party sources.”

They will also store data from businesses buying coverage through an exchange, including a “list of qualified employees and their tax ID numbers,” and keep it all on file for 10 years.

The federal government can disclose this information “without the consent of the individual” to a wide range of people, including “agency contractors, consultants, or grantees” who “need to have access to the records” to help run ObamaCare, as well as law enforcement officials to “investigate potential fraud.”

I must add that this will all be outsourced to left-wing friendly organizations.

Sixteen GOP lawmakers – that’s it – 16 – expressed concerns and asked for more details in a letter to the evil Queen Sebelius. The entire GOP should be banging down the doors of HHS over this but more to blame are the American people who allowed Obamacare to go through with barely a whimper.

The government can access your financial records and take your money WITHOUT A WARRANT thanks to Obamacare.

The Affordable Care Act – Obamacare – gives the federal government access to individual bank accounts and medical records as provided by that individual’s health plan:

  • The government is allowed to monitor any individual’s finances and medical records electronically, for the purposes of determining an individuals eligibility for certain programs under the bill.
  • They can monitor an individual’s finances and medical records to ascertain whether that individual has health insurance and is making regular premium payments to an approved health insurance plan; this will allow the federal government to determine each individual’s financial responsibilities with respect to penalties and fees prior to or at the point of care as outlined in the bill.
  • As a result of the previous clause, the government has the ability to transfer funds electronically to or from an individuals bank account for the purposes of debiting his/her account for fees and penalties. The stated purpose of this clause is “to reduce the clerical burden on patients, health care providers, and health plans.”

Are you worried yet?
