In an effort to know and control every part of everyone's life the federal government now wants to include you body mass index in your electronic medical record that the federal government will protect and control. In light of what is inevitable maybe the feds will hire paroled convicts to scour the Internet to collect the oil balls of their data spill when the fed does what it does best, screw up.
Obesity Rating for Every American Must Be Included in Stimulus-Mandated Electronic Health Records, Says HHS
The obesity-rating regulation states that every American's electronic health record must: “Calculate body mass index. Automatically calculate and display body mass index (BMI) based on a patient’s height and weight.”
The law also requires that these electronic health records be available--with appropriate security measures--on a national exchange.
I don't want an electronic health record with the federal government. I don't need a body mass index (BMI) being sent to a bunch of fat-assed bureaucrats who know less about protecting personal information then they do about health. I despise these little mommies in business attire smugly telling us what we need because they think we are unable to take care of ourselves. Anyone in government that thinks they are smarter than the people is too stupid to be in government. It appears we have an army of bureaucratic nitwits being led by smug morons. Is there a BMI to measure fatheadedness?
