Billions Wasted On Faulty Obamacare Digital Health Record Experiment

In a classic example of how government blows through your tax dollars, billions have been squandered on a faulty electronic medical records system that operates with no oversight and continues receiving big wads of cash from Uncle Sam.

It gets better; by the time it’s all said and done—in about four more years according to government estimates—American taxpayers will have been fleeced $6.6 billion! It’s all part of the Obama Administration’s hostile takeover of the nation’s healthcare system. The idea behind this plan is to switch medical records from paper to digital to create a centralized system that supposedly improves the quality of health care.

As proof their letter includes an excerpt from a mainstream newspaper article that exposes this enraging bit of info; the move to electronic health records may be contributing to billions of dollars in higher costs for Medicare, private insurers and patients by making it easier for hospitals and physicians to bill more for their services, whether or not they provide additional care.

Don't worry most of it was

Don't worry most of it was planned many years before the election of Obama. This 6.6B is straight payoff for Jeff Immelt and GE.
"A small step for government and a giant leap for the corrupt and controlling."

Immelt:
He was selected by GE's Board of Directors in 2000 to replace Jack Welch following his retirement. Previously, Immelt had headed up GE's Medical Systems division (now known as GE Healthcare) as its President and CEO.

This fleecing was long in the planning and execution.
6.6 billion for a database and networking do you really think so??? This is a payoff short and sweet.
