DEA now requiring more prescription data

DEA now requiring more prescription data

Big Brother posterCalifornia’s implementation of Obamacare is called Covered California. One thing they definitely cover is collecting a lot more data on you — for themselves and for private companies. Breitbart reports:

“In what you can interpret as either an act of corporate altruism, corporate lobbying, or a mix of both, two giant retailers — Walmart and Walgreens — have agreed to save the Obama Administration from who knows how many horror-story anecdotes by agreeing to fill 30 days of free prescriptions for ObamaCare enrollees. The question is, though, what happens to the data and patient information these retailers collect?”

No wonder Big Pharma backed Obamacare: more “patients” for its potions, and more data on Americans.

It gets worse:

“According to one Walgreens pharmacist Breitbart News spoke with Tuesday, in April the DEA started requiring pharmacies to ask an increased number of medical questions and show a photo ID for certain medications. There have also been reports that through ObamaCare the federal government is compiling data based on a series of new and intrusive question doctors are required to ask.”

So, suppose you have a skiing accident and break a leg. It gets set in the hospital. The doctor gives you a prescription for codeine to kill the pain. You’re in the databases of: the doctor, the hospital, the pharmacist, the DEA — and who knows who or what else, probably the NSA, which keeps data on everything.

So, then the DEA puts a flag on you in its databases. Which allows it to check all your other data. They notice your best friend was in rehab a couple of years ago. So maybe you’re giving him some of the codeine. Your Ralph’s card shows you purchased some vodka last week. They don’t know, or care, that it was for a party you went to and you didn’t drink any of it.

They find out you bought a rifle recently and registered it under California’s new law under which the state keeps permanent records.

They check the Netflix database and your favorite movie seems to be “Scarface,” starring Al Pacino. You also emailed a joke to a friend with the famous line from the movie, “Okay. You wanna play rough? Okay. Say hello to my little friend!”

They’re building a “pattern” of your life, and it’s obvious that you could be a drug dealer. You need to be watched even more carefully.

You wake up in the middle of the night to a strong pounding on your door and shouted profanities outside, as police flashers illuminate your front yard….

    Hey, but it’s all being done to protect us and keep us ‘safer’ from the ‘terrists’ who hate us for our freedoms.

    Just sit still in that pot on the stove with the others. The Gov is your friend. You’re in good hands.

    The young healthy ones got a great deal. $175 premiums ($2100 annual) with $6000 deductibles. Total maximum potential payout? $8100. Isn’t that worth giving up a little privacy over?

    Many of those young and healthy ones voted for Obama TWICE. lol. They wanted this. They are patriots and willing to sacrifice so that the poor ones get free health care and the chronically sick baby boomers get cheap health care. The young and healthy ones are willing to pay for it all because they believed and still believe in ‘hope and change’.

    I’m convinced of that. lol.

        We were all young and stupid once. I blame the ones trying to take advantage of the young folks much more than I blame the kids. The ones trying to pull the wool over their eyes. They know better. They’re the real culprits here.

        It’s like a con artist bilking an 85 year old woman out of her life savings. Same principle at least.

        The WW1 and WW2 generations would have NEVER done this to their young generations. They were more concerned about leaving a better life behind for their kids and grandkids than there were about their own quality of life.

        Now, in just one or two generations of time, that attitude has completely reversed. Those grey-headed thieves in political office are forcing the the kids to pay for their sins – so that they can continue to accumulate wealth – without even batting an eyelash.

        I’ve never seen or heard of such anti-American or immoral behavior from the top in all my life.

        Even animals put their young before themselves. It’s all so disgusting.

          We have a “fifth column” in our cites, counties, and states whose sole intention is to steal all they can for themselves. It is the government worker collectives. With inside connections they are robbing the non-connected citizens of any decent future, padding their own pay, pensions and benefits. They have no integrity or honor, greed is their creed!! 🙂

    This fits nicely with the IRS now having the ability to steal from your bank accounts via Obamacare dictates!! 🙂

    Wait until the hospitals that are magnets for the Medi-Caid (Cal) patients only get reimbursed 8%-10% of their billed charges and are forced to shut their doors due to lack of funds. lol. No longer will you have to worry about those hospitals sharing your info with DEA. lol.

    The brilliant Ivy League gov employees who created ObamaCare are the brightest intellectuals that America produces. Just get into a debate with one over Obama’s policies and he or she will dazzle you with their knowledge. Your head will spin. You can watch them on MSNBC most any day of the week. But they aren’t mathematicians. You will never see a mathematician on MSNBC defending the Obama Administration.

    Have you ever wondered why?

    Prescription drugs are becoming a big problem with stressed out workers these days….a bit more monitoring of the distribution pipe line appears practical, if proven effective by local law enforcement.

    With the large deductibles in ACA……giving away drugs like candy appears unlikely.

    Bashing the unfortunate who need Medi-Cal is pretty low…..very low. Where is your compassion for truly sick people. Smug posters chastising the poor are way out of line.

      They’ve done away with ‘means testing’ for Medi-Cal under ObamaCare, you fool. Now a Medi-Cal (Medi-Caid) enrollee could own a $2M home and have hundreds of thousands of dollars in financial accounts and still be eligible for Medi-Cal as long as they keep their income under about $16,000!!! lol.

      Stop being so hyper-critical of other posters like a Mrs. Kravitz type and start keeping up with the news!!! lol!

    Fair and balanced……zzzzzzzzzzz

    16k income……is a form of means testing….

    Obamacare Bronze has high deductibles….The IRS is charged with reviewing your income to grant subsidies…..

      Wow. Ignorance gone wild.

      “Means Testing” specifically measures ASSETS over and above income when determining eligibility for public assistance. Go look it up.

      They used to do it for Medi-Caid (Cal) but they don’t anymore with ObamaCare. Like I said, theoretically one could own a $2M home free and clear and have $1M cash (or even more) in a passbook savings account drawing 1% interest and qualify for Medi-Cal under ObamaCare. That’s because the gov only tests for INCOME – not accumulated ASSETS when determining eligibility.

      So it’s VERY possible to have millionaires getting Medi-Cal benefits under ObamaCare!!! lol.

      If you spent some time researching the issues instead of behaving like Mrs. Kravitz with your constant personal criticisms of other poster’s opinions maybe you’d know some of this. lol.
