Claim: Health care legislation requires that U.S. residents be implanted with RFID microchips.
Obamacare law requires an RFID chip implanted in all of us.
Are you ready to have your RFID Chip Implanted? 3/23/2013 is your date!
This new Health Care (Obamacare) law requires an RFID chip implanted in all of us. This chip will not only contain your personal information with tracking capability but it will also be linked to your bank account. And get this,

Seems people will be getting more than they bargained for in this new health care bill.
The Obama health care bill under Sec. 2521,
National Medical Device Registry from H.R. 3200 [Healthcare Bill],
(g)(1) The Secretary shall establish a national medical device registry (in this subsection referred to as the 'registry') to facilitate analysis of postmarket safety and outcomes data on each device that:
(A) is or has been used in or on a patient;
(B) and is: (i) a class III device;
or (ii) a class II device that is implantable, life-supporting, or life-sustaining.
A "class II device that is implantable?"
Then on page 1,004 it describes what the term "data" means in
Approved by the FDA, a class II implantable device is a "implantable radiofrequency transponder system for patient identification and health information."
This sort of device would be implanted in the majority of people who opt to become covered by the public health care option. With the reform of the private insurance companies, who charge outrageous rates, many people will switch their coverage to a more affordable insurance plan. This means the number of people who choose the public option will increase. This also means the number of people chipped will be plentiful as well. The adults who choose to have a chip implanted are the lucky (yes, lucky if you're a Govt Control Libtard) ones in this case. Children who are "born in the United States who at the time of birth is not otherwise covered under acceptable coverage" will be qualified and placed into the CHIP or Children's Health Insurance Program (what a convenient name). With a name like CHIP it would seem consistent to have the chip implanted into a child. Children conceived by parents who are already covered under the public option will more than likely be implanted with a chip by the consent of the parent. Eventually everyone will be implanted with a chip. And with the price and coverage of the public option being so competitive with the private companies, the private company may not survive.
Origins: "Big Brother" rumors (often linked to the "mark of the beast" referenced in
First off, the referenced information was not part of the "Obamacare" health care legislation actually enacted by Congress. The page numbers and language cited in the example above were taken from
Second, nothing in any of those unpassed bills mandated that anyone be implanted with any type of microchip or RFID-based device, for any reason. The passages quoted above reference a section of the legislation that simply called for the creation of a registry which would allow the Department of Health and Human Services to collect data about medical devices "used in or on a patient" (such as pacemakers or hip replacements) for purposes that included tracking the effectiveness of such devices and facilitating the distribution of manufacturer recall notices. Absolutely nothing in those bills required that patients receive any type of implantable device (microchip or otherwise) or authorized the government to mandate the implantation of devices in patients.
Update: A 28 July 2013 article about implanted microchips being "given a test run on the proud and patriotic citizens of Hanna, Wyoming" was mistaken by many readers for a genuine news story. However, that article was just a spoof from the satirical National Report web site.
