Obamacare to force doctors to record your history of sex and drugs in government database

It seems that Obamacare will require that the health records maintained by the government under the law contain social and behavioral data.

As if the NSA didn't already know about it:
Whether you're at the dermatologist or the cardiologist, you'll likely be asked: "Are you sexually active? If so, do you have one partner, multiple partners or same-sex partners?"

Doctors are being turned into government agents, where they're pressured financially to ask questions they consider inappropriate and unnecessary and violate their Hippocratic Oath to keep patients' records confidential.

And we are already seeing incidents telling us about the level of competence and diligence we should expect from the government agencies running these programs. In Minnesota, for example, information on 2400 agents --including social security numbers, addresses, and other identifying information -- was accidentally emailed to an insurance broker.
