Default US government seizing medical records

It seems that the French backed Junta which took control of the English colony of Virginia is desperate to populate its Big Brother databases on its citizens using its award winning "no taxation without representation" laws.

A healthcare provider has sued the Internal Revenue Service and 15 of its agents, claiming that they seized 60 million medical records from 10 million Americans under the pretext of investigating one of its employees.

The Washington Times has not found out the name of the insurance company but the Courthouse News Service said the suit claims the agency violated the Fourth Amendment.

It all started in 2011, when agents executed a search warrant for financial data on one employee and that led to the seizure of the personal data of 10 million. Among the 10 million people whose sickness records were half-inched include a few state judges, so we expect that a few are going to be miffed.

In fact, the original search warrant did not specify that the IRS could take medical information, they just took it anyway. It was not as if they took the data by mistake either. The company's IT staff warned the IRS about the potential to violate medical privacy laws before agents executed the warrant.

Their response to the warning was that they would 'rip' the servers containing the medical data out of the building if IT personnel would not voluntarily hand them over.

IRS agents seized workers' phones and telephone data which were more violations of the warrant.

As a result of the warrant, the IRS knows details of patients' treatment plans and therapies of up to one in 25 Americans, UPI said.

If the case proves true, then it means that the US government is using bogus search warrants to collect whatever data it can on its citizens under the cover of rows over guns, gay marriage and umbrellas.

Looks like that revolution is working out for them. In the meantime you might want to adjust your tinfoil hat.
