. . . and it seems that Obamacare is part and parcel of it. David Steinberg points out:
Since the passage of Obamacare, all fifty state Medicaid agencies have been forced to create a new standalone database that contains nothing besides the contact information of Medicaid applicants who used Healthcare.gov.
Some of these new databases mail out voter registration forms automatically. You cannot refuse them.
No worthwhile verification occurs before the forms are mailed. Apply for Medicaid and the form will be mailed to you, be you a verifiable citizen or Ayman al-Zawahiri on a computer in Pakistan.
Further, these new databases are accessible by groups like Organizing for Action, the reconstituted ACORN, and malevolent figures like Chris Tarango.
And no reasonable purpose exists for creating the databases besides making them available to the aforementioned Democratic activists.

You know, if the Republican administration of President Bush had tried to do this, liberal and progressive Americans and news media would have thrown screaming, hysterical hissy-fits of outrage - and they'd have been right to do so. Why aren't they making a fuss when the Obama administration tries to do it? Isn't this a perversion of democracy by any independent standard?
Yeah, I know . . . don't bother trying to answer that . . .
