#1 Obamacare will question your sex life09-16-2013, 10:36 AMBy Betsy McCaughey

‘Are you sexually active? If so, with one partner, multiple partners or same-sex partners?”
Be ready to answer those questions and more the next time you go to the doctor, whether it’s the dermatologist or the cardiologist and no matter if the questions are unrelated to why you’re seeking medical help. And you can thank the Obama health law.
“This is nasty business,” says New York cardiologist Dr. Adam Budzikowski. He called the sex questions “insensitive, stupid and very intrusive.” He couldn’t think of an occasion when a cardiologist would need such information — but he knows he’ll be pushed to ask for it.
The president’s “reforms” aim to turn doctors into government agents, pressuring them financially to ask questions they consider inappropriate and unnecessary, and to violate their Hippocratic Oath to keep patients’ records confidential.
LINKMay the FORCE be with you!

I can understand those questions from a cardiologist, as sex puts a strain on the heart, but I object to being asked those kinds of questions by a podiatrist, an Ear, Nose and Throat doctor or a proctologist, and I'd damned well better not hear them from our veterinarian.

On a recent trip to a dermatologist, I was already asked some questions -- none of these types of questions, TYVM -- but I flat out refused to answer them because "the gubmint" was the source.
