The government has its hands all over everyone’s most private places these days. From touching people at the airport, to intercepting emails and phone calls, to swabbing the DNA right out of people’s mouths without a warrant: It’s all becoming a numbing sensation.
IRS seizes 60 million medical records in California
It comes as no surprise that the IRS is now stealing people’s sensitive medical records. That’s the case in California. A reported 60 million medical records have been seized by 15 IRS agents. The House Energy and Commerce Committee is now investigating a lawsuit initiated by a California health care provider that purports that the IRS stole “intimate and private information of more than 10,000,000 Americans including the names and health records of prominent celebrities, sports personalities, and CEOs, ultimately affecting roughly one out of every twenty-five adult American citizens.”
These power grabbers didn’t fool around. They went for the entire company’s IT system, telling the IT personnel “to transfer several servers of the medical records and patient records to the IRS for search and seizure, otherwise they would ‘rip’ the servers out of the building entirely.”
After further investigation, the IRS agents used the stolen IT media system to even order pizza and watch basketball at their headquarters.
