This week, between Peg and myself we’ve been in doctor offices four times. Each different doctor required a check-in which consisted of:
1. a photo of the patient
2. insurance cards copied
3. signatures on statements that we agree to pay in blood if Medicare does not cover our visit. Apparently, the doctors do not yet know if Medicare covers what they prescribe. I wonder if Dr. Death knows?
The photo really caught my attention. For what possible reason could a doctor need your photo? The doctor sees what you look like each time you visit. In my case he even knows my name and calls me Joe. My mind worked overtime and finally the little light-bulb came on, you know the old-fashioned kind of Edison bulb with tungsten filaments in them, not the curly fluorescent kind loaded with deadly mercury. Answer this question: who in the health care system does not know what you look like? As of January 1, 2013, parts of the PPACA became effective. So the answer is, Obama does not know what you look like. I shuddered each time the shutter clicked, because now my ugly likeness is going into a national database. Most likely this is one database that Homeland Security will share with the DOJ, FBI, CIA, ICE, IRS, SSA, Secret Service, the Frankfort Police, the Will County Sheriff, the Illinois State Police and every other big brother organization wanting to look into your life without you knowing it.
A second light bulb went off a few seconds later with a new question. Why is it that my picture is in my health file, on my driver’s license, my firearm owners ID, and the pass I use to travel on Metra at a discount without discrimination, and not on my voter registration card?
The DOJ defends their argument not to use picture ID’s for voter registration because somehow it discriminates against certain people, and as such keeps them from the voter rolls. Yet, many government agencies require these same people to have photo id’s to drive, to see a doctor, to own a gun, and to use public transportation. In Illinois the libs have passed the motor-voter law so you can register to vote when you apply for a driver’s license which requires a photo. Illinois recently, passed a new law allowing illegal aliens to get a driver’s license. Guess what? Each illegal will be asked if he wants to register to vote at the same time. The same photo taken for the driver’s license can easily be duplicated for a minimal cost for use on the voter registration id. Taking two pictures at one time is a technology problem beyond the comprehension of Congressional leaders. (Remember we voted them in.)
There hasn’t been a new light going on above my head with an answer to that one.
I think this question warrants a letter to my Senators and Congressman, don’t you?
