Trending Politics recently posted an article about a bill passed by the House of Representatives that would establish a federal vaccination database. I guess when you want total control, you don’t worry about such things as Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) laws.
The article reports:
The House of Representatives has passed a dangerous bill that would establish a federal vaccination database. Alarmingly, the radical Democrats accomplished this with the help of 80 Republicans, including Minority Leader and Speaker hopeful Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).
“Eighty House Republicans voted with Democrats on Tuesday to pass the Immunization Infrastructure Modernization Act, which if passed by the Senate and signed into law would fund a federal vaccination database,” Breitbart reported.
“According to the bill, also called H. R. 550, the government would provide $400 million in taxpayer dollars to fund ‘immunization system data modernization and expansion,’ a system otherwise defined as ‘a confidential, population-based, computerized database that records immunization doses administered by any health care provider to persons within the geographic area covered by that database’,” the report noted.
The government bill would spend $400 million on an “immunization system data modernization and expansion,” a system it says is “a confidential, population-based, computerized database that records immunization doses administered by any health care provider to persons within the geographic area covered by that database.”
If you don’t think this law will be totally misused by the people in Washington, you haven’t been paying attention.
The article concludes:
“In a statement, the bill’s main sponsor, Democrat Rep. Ann Kuster (NH), said the system would be used to ‘remind patients when they are due for a recommended vaccine’ and identify areas with low vaccination rates to ‘ensure equitable distribution of vaccines,” Breitbart reported. “Notably, the bill has four Republican co-sponsors: Reps. Larry Bucshon (R-IN), James Baird (R-IN), David McKinley (R-WV), and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA).”
Rep. Mary Miller (R-IL), one of the 130 Republicans to vote “no,” told Breitbart News on Wednesday that the legislation would enable the federal government to “track” unvaccinated Americans who “will be targeted and forced to comply with Biden’s crazy ‘global vaccination’ vision.”
“These systems are designed to allow for the sharing of crucial information and maintenance of records. Do we really trust the government to protect our medical records?” Miller said. “The bill’s author even bragged in her press release that these systems will help the government remind patients when they are due for a recommended vaccine and identify areas with low vaccination rates to ensure equitable distribution of vaccines. This was clearly a legislative tool to enforce vaccine mandates and force their Orwellian rules onto those who do not comply.”
Disturbingly, the federal vaccination database could also be abused to target Americans who value human rights and individual freedoms. As the Democratic Party has repeatedly demonstrated, there is no part of the federal government the extremist party isn’t willing to weaponize against their political enemies.
