No STD's listed in the Electronic Health Record

You can opt out of listing STD's and abortions in your EHR. Isn't that nice. No surprise that this comes from someone named Kennedy. Kennedy's have to be able to cover their indiscretions somehow.

The scary part to me is not that you can hide when you cheat on your spouse so much as the fact that EHRs will exist at all. I love this part:
The law says that doctors, hospitals and other health care providers must create an Electronic Health Record (EHR) for every American by 2014 or else face deductions in their Medicare payments. The EHRs are supposed to be integrated into a national health care IT system where health-care providers nationwide as well as the government would have the ability to access them when authorized.
" . . . the goernment would have the ability to access them when authorized." LOL. The question is: When would the government NOT be authorized to access EHRs? Probably for moslems, acorn members, government officials, and anyone that makes a big enough campaign contribution.

I wonder how long it will be before the records of opposition candidates start being leaked to the press right before elections? Surely people at Tea Party's would never have their records opened to the public, right?

Ah, the benefits of socialism.

Hmmm. A nationwide government accessible medical database. What could go wrong there?

Ever been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD? You're clearly mentally unstable and can't have access to firearms.

Is your weight outside of the BMI? You're too likely to die from obesity, so NO UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE FOR YOU! Too 'spensive, you see. Not fair to burden everyone else.

Ditto for smokers, diabetics and those evil right-wing terrorists that fight our wars (they're all crazy, ya know?).

But have your womb scraped or have sex with any skank (of either gender) that happens to be around is just hunky dory.
