Looks like the US is going through the same problem we're facing in the
UK. First the government proposed (pointless) ID cards; then they proposed
shared electronic health records - passed around all places in the NHS
(most medical professionals in the country); then they piloted it without
giving the victims, sorry, patients a chance to opt-out; then they back
pedaled; now they're pushing (pointless) ID cards again...
Of course the British people are being ambivalent about the issue...
