You know I actually -- this on through in the best spin I can put on this latest Cyrus scandal is -- may be they were just trying to -- the rush.
Before they would be taking over this whole health care law reports -- agents were seizing millions of Americans health records without them knowing.
And for god knows what purpose too conservative strategist Ron Meyer.
Ron what's really going on here and how did it happen.
Well I really can't believe -- it seems that about sixty million medical records ten million people's medical records have been seized in California.
Looks like -- happen in 2011 is all -- at this point part of a court case that's being investigated.
By -- -- -- real deal and whether you think about a ten million Americans.
That's three in a hundred Americans that's 3% of all Americans whose medical records recedes -- we don't know if there any other time for -- -- -- -- let's say because there's a lot of in this -- about this the others are following up on is there's seems to be some way to had given some of the lawyers involved but I'll leave that out.
But but but well -- -- what and what do you what is what are -- looking -- desires agents in those records outside it's -- again I'm giving benefit out.
IRS that is going to be taken over health care this is stuff that's gonna be under their purview anyway but it's fine.
Well it's really frustrating to me because they have these general Warren -- to -- this -- the Fourth Amendment if they're gonna get a -- let's be specific surface that probable cause.
It's not -- to be you know sixty million or ten million people on one warrant -- us be very specific and so -- these things obviously unconstitutional.
But think what they're looking for is one guy and I just wish that they actually are looking for one guy -- -- not trying to build a database.
That they'd actually just go in there and extract one record that's why don't understand it seems like -- terrible abuse of privacy terrible abuse of the Fourth Amendment.
And I think that's what's so aggravating about the whole thing we've seen this time and again whether through the NSA by the IRS that people can be using syringes and they're taking it and hold batches of information.
He does Hollywood madam no you're right runs it does all of that -- that is consumer financial protection board.
That is going ahead and taking a lot of data like your credit records I would your mortgage information you know you -- in history etc.
They say just to sort of get this stuff together so it's and are so that they have.
If these companies are there screw you over Augusta but I'm just saying -- why do you need this to committee gets to be a pile on dozens.
It is a pile on I think Americans are getting frustrated especially young people.
We were talking about the NSA were talking about phone something very personalized -- about health records that's even more personal.
And so you know -- -- it did bring this back to the business side of things.
You know companies.
They usually lose tons of stock when we see security breaches were their records -- being looked into.
And now the IRS is doing that they're looking at people's records and they have the fourth the blob behind and I think that's really scary.
You know we've seen companies tank because their records have been leaked and we've seen.
You know companies -- incredible amounts of stock that way but the government's not the meaning getting those records we don't know how secure they are.
And they have the power blob behind and I think it's a terrible president and businesses I don't think you're comfortable with that I'm -- not -- with that as a private citizen who has these sorts of records and I think.
-- we want -- wanted to -- On this is that this was a test case to see how they could assimilate this information how quickly and -- I don't necessarily -- sinister motives -- I will say this much like Verizon phone records situation.
It's indicative of the power of the government has to get a lot of stuff and what -- quickly and it does very easily.
It doesn't matter if it's and it's your -- on constitutional -- -- they -- -- do this a general warrant which is just beyond I mean the Fourth Amendment right away it went.
Really did have a legal power to do it or not and then -- -- -- that's Fuzzy and gray area with the with the Patriot Act I think what should be more alarming to folks is is why.
It's just want an end and we're not even ask that question is and -- trust us when -- a process.
I get worried.
But we're all good and it's American people Elizabeth absolutely now Ron thank you very very much -- minor thing else.
