Congressman: Obamacare, White House gun control 'intertwining'

Wednesday, January 16, 2013 | Matthew Boyle | Breitbart
Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) expressed concerns about the “intertwining” of President Barack Obama’s gun control push and his 2009 healthcare overhaul legislation Obamacare in a Wednesday evening statement.

Huelskamp worries that the administration will coordinate controversial parts of Obamacare that may invade patient privacy with the president’s new strident gun control efforts.

“The intertwining of ObamaCare and President Obama's new anti-gun agenda raises serious concerns,” Huelskamp said. “With earlier and on-going efforts by the Obama Administration to invade personal liberties by collecting sensitive patient data, we should now be concerned that the Administration wants to reassure providers that they can ask – and record information – about patients' gun ownership and storage of firearms.

"It seems that there is no end to the Administration's efforts to conduct citizen surveillance in the exam room,” the Congressman warned.
