    Liberals historically have always held themselves up as the 'defender' of privacy.

    After 9-11 lib's screamed bloody murder that the Patriot Act was an 'invasion' of privacy. True libs don't even want to intercept calls originating from known terrorist countries! Nope, invasion of privacy they say.

    They say it's a woman's right to control her OWN body. Roe v Wade

    They are staunch defenders of the HIPAA legislation protecting one's private medical information.

    We could go on and on and on....... I'm sure someone else will add more.

    So, riddle me this lib's, WHY on God's green earth are you SO WILLING to give up control of YOUR ENTIRE BODY to faceless bureaucracy in Washington?

    Talk about an invasion of privacy! This is the ULTIMATE invasion of privacy. Any behavior "THEY THINK" is risky and costly to the 'system' will be penalized in one way or another. Want to do a little hiking in the wilderness, nope to dangerous! Want to go snowboarding, nope to dangerous. If you a vegan, want to have a big ole plate of french fires smothered in cheese. Nope, bad for your heart and on and on and on................................................ ................................................

    One of the plans 'cost savings' measures is to digitize and centrally locate ALL medical records. You've seen the IBM commercials. Great, let's have your entire health history in a database the government has control over! Probably would use MS Windows as the OS. HA, that's a secure platform.

    WHY, WHY, WHY are you willing to do this?? How much of your body are you willing to 'give up' to the government? Your body and your mind are pretty much the LAST autonomous space you STILL control!!

    Blind sheep being led to the slaughter.

    Because if my body is broken or sick, I'd like to be able to have it fixed before it gets worse. It's a no-brainer.

    Can you post anymore rightwing alarmist propaganda? Have you read the actual proposals working their ways through congressional committees? Because if you had, you'd see that there isn't an invasion of privacy anymore than your hospital invades your privacy, and that the government doesn't do anything medical and only sets up the system of finances for those who aren't insured. Give me a break! All this is Lumbaugh-barf that's been swallowed and then re-thrown back up.

    Even the screeching about "invasion of privacy" if medical records go high tech so that a specialist in California can immediately read the history of a patient in Florida. Good grief, don't these naysayers realize how many "hands" medical records currently pass through the old-fashioned way? From the doctor, to the transcriptionist, to the records department for filing, retrieved by someone else to make COPIES as necessary. Don't think for a moment that the poor schmuck in for a penile pump doesn't have his file read and chuckled over in the lunch room, or in smaller communities that the nice lady next door came in for alcohol addiction and the typist who lives next door can't wait to tell the other neighbors.

    The public healthcare option is a De Facto single payer system. It is designed to push private insurance over the cliff. All the usual lib suspects are on record as having said as much.

    Hell, when the insurance companies got hold of my medical records, they no longer wanted me as a client. So no, I'm really not that concerned. Am I concerned about rationing? Of course I am. I've already felt the blunt of rationing with this great private system we have.
