Obamacare law creates “Data Services Hub” and tracks “social and behavioral” data

Stop worrying about the IRS or the NSA stealing your information. From now on we will hand it over to the government voluntarily.
If the IRS or NSA scandals involving misuse of private data were troubling, consider the implications of the new information databases created in the name of health care.  The newly-launched Affordable Care Act creates a massive electronic registry of private information that is accessible to bureaucrats in agencies ranging from the Internal Revenue Service to the Department of Homeland Security.
To facilitate this forfeiture of individual privacy, the Department of Health and Human Services has created a massive, comprehensive database to record and store Americans’ personal information called the Federal Data Services Hub.  The Government Accountability Office (GAO) reports that the purpose of the Data Hub is to provide “electronic, near real-time access to federal data” and “access to state and third party data sources needed to verify consumer-eligibility information.”
No longer will any of our intimate medical details be reasonably considered either private or protected.
