HHS is proposing biosurviellance of your medical records on the basis of national security. Once they have access to the records, there's no solid definiitive boundires for what they can use your data for, or consequences that could be brought on you. Evidence to prosecute possibly?

The federal government is piecing together a sweeping national “biosurveillance” system that will give bureaucrats near real-time access to Americans’ private medical information in the name of national security, according to Twila Brase, a public health nurse and co-founder of the Citizens Council for Health Freedom.
The Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response is currently seeking public comment on a 52-page draft of the proposed “National Health Security Strategy 2015-2018” (NHSS).

The deadline for comment is 5 pm EST on May 21st. (See Draft National Health Security Strategy 2015-2018.pdf)

“Health situational awareness includes biosurveillance and other health and non-health inputs (e.g., lab/diagnostics, health service utilization, active intelligence, and supply chain information), as well as systems and processes for effective communication among responders and critical health resource monitoring and allocation,” the draft states.

But Brase warns that the NHSS proposal would allow the federal government to monitor an individual’s behavior before, during and after any government-defined health “incident” – which could be anything from a local outbreak of the flu to a terrorist anthrax attack.

“It’s very broad. It doesn’t seem to have any limits, except they say something about, you know, properly protecting the data. But from our perspective, if the government gets access to this kind of data, [and] is allowed to do research with the data…then our privacy has already been compromised. The government has already said that our data is their data for their purposes of national health security,” Brase told CNSNews.com.[/quote]

Sounds like your government assumes they can do damn near ANYTHING they want on the basis of National Security. By the people, for the people? Not so much!

Yep they've oversold the terrorism bit.  This country will never be able get over it.  Somehow we were able to carry on past WWII, Vietnam and many other conflicts.  They do a terrible disservice to the country trumping this terrorism nomenclature over and over and over.  Terrorism is now the excuse used for anything and everything now.  The American people fall lock in step.
