Being a good, Democrat-run state, Minnesota has decided to build an ObamaCare exchange, turning all healthcare rights and choices of its citizens over to the tender mercies of federal death panels and untrained, IT technicians in Washington, DC.
But if anything, thatâ€™s the GOOD news for unsuspecting Minnesotans! For all information currently considered â€śpersonalâ€ť will, at the stroke of a keyboard, become known to countless bureaucracies throughout the State and federal governments.
As the Citizenâ€™s Council for Health Freedom explains it:
â€śBuried in the text of the Minnesota Obamacare Exchange bill (MNHIX) [is] a tiny but controversial section allowing free-flow sharing of all data the government has on you. It also grants them access to the data â€śother entitiesâ€ť have on you. There is no limit to the agencies that can share data. There is no limit to the data that can be shared. There is no limit with whom the data may be shared.â€ť (1)
Sound comforting? Well thereâ€™s more!
Minnesota â€śâ€¦state agencies shall share â€śnot public dataâ€ť with the Minnesota Insurance Marketplace if the board determines that the exchange of the data is â€śreasonably necessaryâ€ť to â€ścarry out the functions of the Minnesota Insurance Marketplace.â€ť The exchange is also allowed to share â€śnot public dataâ€ť with state agencies, the federal government and â€śother entities,â€ť a term that is left undefined.â€ť (1)
According to Minnesota law, â€śnot public dataâ€ť means â€śany government data classified by statute, federal law, or temporary classification as confidential, private, nonpublic, or protected nonpublic.â€ť (1)
So, if the D.C. Board which runs ObamaCare decides it is â€śreasonably necessaryâ€ť to know if you pay your taxes, are delinquent on your mortgage or own 4 pistols in order to properly â€ścarry out the functionsâ€ť of the ObamaCare exchange, that information will immediately become known throughout all â€śrelevantâ€ť state and federal government bureaucracies!
Uh, did someone say â€śown 4 pistols?â€ť Yes! In the State of Minnesota, no one may purchase a handgun until they have first obtained a handgun transferee permit from their local Chief of Police or Sheriffâ€™s office. That permit is then taken to a gun dealer to purchase a pistol from them, or presented to a dealer in order to make legal any sale between private parties. Naturally, that permit becomes part of the purchaserâ€™s Minnesota, gun ownership record.
So gun registration is built right into ObamaCare in the State of Minnesota. Would Barack and the rest of the far left take advantage of such a law in order to track gun owners and their purchases? Whatâ€™s that saying about Popes and bears?
ObamaCare has NEVER been about healthcare and the more the American public finds out about this Marxist scheme of federal ownership and control, the more obvious it becomes.
And sooner or later, the left will engineer their long anticipated overthrow of the 2nd Amendment. In Minnesota, at least, ObamaCare may well be instrumental in the process. But be careful what you wish for, ladies and gentlemen of the left. That whirlwind you reap might just shoot back!
