Half of Congress is in recess, but debate continues over President Obama’s health care program concerning privacy.
Section 163 of the bill states that the government would be allowed real-time access to a person’s bank records – including direct access to bank accounts for electronic fund transfers.
Even-though the bill mentions privacy aspects, the fact remains that if approved, Obama’s health care plan will give the government permission at any time to your personal bank records.
Arizona Congressman John Shadegg says people have the right to be concerned.
“It’s pretty Orwellian, it certainly gets the government pretty darn deeply involved in private matters in our lives.”
