That’s none of their business!
Oh really? Come on. This is the new Obama era. We are all one. Communal living, all of us little brothers and sisters, happily supervised together by BIG BROTHER.
Obamacare is a massive government intrusion into the private sector, with formerly private businesses now operating effectively as utilities whose businesses and even business models are completely regulated by the State.
These companies now have to meet endless requirements or they lose money. And so they are now going to make sure you meet endless requirements. And they’ll track you to find out if you are.
It’s a change in our culture. When the State is involved in everyone’s business, the notion that we have a right to our private lives erodes away. Companies under State scrutiny, that have to essentially enforce State dictates, believe it’s both natural and necessary that they scrutinize you.
From a report on WFAA Texas:
Health care groups are now using credit card data to track patients – checking to see if your spending habits are contributing to poor health or chronic conditions . . .
Experts say Obamacare has forced health care companies to change their ways because under this new legislation hospitals can actually be fined if patients are readmitted after receiving treatment s a second time for the same ailment.
Oh well, I’ve always known I should use cash instead of charging stuff.
