For $149, a consumer can have a passive 134 kHz RFID chip, compliant with the ISO 11784 and 11785 standards, implanted in his or her arm, with the transponder's unique 16-digit ID number linked to a database containing that individual's medical records and, if they so choose, a living will....
Thus far, about 900 hospitals on the East Coast have agreed to participate in the VeriChip system. These hospitals have received RFID interrogators that can be used to read a patient's embedded VeriChip RFID transponder to automatically access that person's medical records. Of those hospitals, Silverman says, about 200 have completed VeriChip training on using the system, and have been provided access to the VeriMed database...

What he wants to do is put a badge of shame upon Americans who do not want to be bullied into buying a product that they don't want and that they feel they don't need. He wants a public shame mechanism for those that don't buy into the forced purchase of Obamacare.
Obamacare = unsustainable.
Obamacare = waivergate.
And what this fella wants is a public declaration of ...
Obamacare = good citizen
no Obamacare = bad citizen
Can you just imagin the reaction if one of President Bush's people made a "half-joke" like this? People would be screaming for his head.
They could care less whether you live or die...it's all about the money !!
