There's an interesting fact about HIPAA that many people don't know. If I asked who is responsible for the HIPAA rules, most people would know that it is the Federal government.

I wrote to both my senators about this. All I got back was a load of generic crapola from both of them. Then politicians wonder why they rank right up there with rapists & child molesters in the public eye.
