The House passed both the Senate Health Care bill and the House Reconciliation Act H.R. 4872 on March 21, 2010. The Senate bill goes to the President for signing and the Reconciliation bill, HR4872, goes to the Senate for approval. There are two items with dire consequences included in the Reconciliation bill.
The first is mandatory RFID chip implants. The gist of the wording in the bill provides setting up a registry for collecting patient data, such as medical records, insurance claims, pharmacy data, etc. The wording in the bill leaves open any additional data collection as required. The timetable for implementation is within 3 years. The wording is very vague, but the only way the registry can be established with the data they plan on collecting is with everyone having the chip.
The second is establishing a National Health ID/Debit card with Smart chip/RFID technology, linked to Bank accounts for the purpose of ID verification as well as patient info, along with instant debit from Bank account to pay for co-pays, etc. The wording leaves open the option to use this concurrently with RFID chip implant. The timetable for implementation is within 2 years.

There is still time to voice your opposition to these civil right intrusions. Call your Senators and let them know how you feel.
I’ve been chomping at the bit for the last two days to get this posted. I didn’t realize registration in the forum was not instant…
On the lighter side of things….to borrow a story line from Star Trek “The Trouble With Tribbles” is….they lead to Tribble-lation!
