Hillary failed in her attempt to control your life almost a decade ago, now shes at it again. Knowing the American people cannot be sold on an already failed system such as the ones in Canada and the United Kingdom Hillary is now testing the waters to see if backdoor control can be instituted via control of your healthcare records.

Concern should be felt no matter what side of the political fence you sit-on, Privacy of your records prevents discrimination by Banks, Corporations, Insurance Companies and Government based on medical history. Serious inroads on your privacy have been made - we don't need more.

Consider this, The central database is set up and at some future date insurance companies are allowed access and cherrypick only the healthest to insure - the rest of us are told to either pay exorbitant fees or petition the government for relief. (I think this is what Hillary wants to happen)

If Hillary really did'nt want government control of healthcare records and thereby control of your vote she could present a bill in the Senate proposing a full 100% tax deduction for private health insurance allowing people to go out and find the best deal for themselves.

The poor and working poor have programs in existence such as Medicaid and Medicare, also every community hospital has a fund budgeted for people with no resources that you pay for in taxes right now.

NEWSDAY, NEW YORK -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton wants to create a nationwide electronic medical system that would enable doctors to access and share health records, research, prescriptions and other information, she said Monday.

Clinton says a government-created infrastructure, with special privacy standards and perhaps funding initiatives, could change that. She plans to introduce the legislation next week.

Clinton, who fought unsuccessfully a decade ago to expand affordable health care during her husband's administration, acknowledged the difficult road ahead.

"There will be losers in this system,"

Clinton did not offer specifics on selling the idea to opponents, but said she was purposely getting into the health care debate by focusing on improving quality, leaving for later the more thorny issue of how to cover the uninsured.

That was the crux of her 1993-94 initiative, which collapsed under criticism from industry interests and members of Congress, who called it a confusing bureaucracy.

Clinton has said she learned lessons from the failure.

The article basically sugercoats the idea of a central database in the guise of efficiency and convenience but really did'nt explain the darker side to this proposal and what it could portend for the future if ever passed as law.
