According to The Last Days News, a new implanted microchip will be mandated by ObamaCare (aka the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) starting a week from today, March 23.
TLDS cites the Affordable Care Act as describing an “implantable radio frequency transponder for patient identification and health information.1” Sounds like a really useful thing to have if you’re lying unconscious in an emergency room.
The Children’s Health Insurance Program has been around over a decade, but TLDS thinks the acronym is particularly ominous now, saying:
With a name like CHIP it would seem consistent to have the chip implanted into a child.
I have a buddy named Chip. I wonder if he’s implanted?
There are certain important documents that everybody talks about but nobody really reads, and I suppose that the Affordable Care Act (HR 3590) is one of them. Here’s a copy, if you’re interested. Neither “March 23” nor “implant” is in it. Snopes has an article.
1The only Google hits on this phrase were to right-wing Christian web sites. Most of the quotes in the referenced article were from a version of health care legislation that didn’t pass Congress, but even there, there was no mandatory implanting of anybody with anything.
