    Greene is propagating fear of the vaccine. Fuck her.
    I agree. Which is why I'm not defending her.

    I'm just pointing out the disconnect between the OP title and the reality.
    Tom
    Don't or can't display a near equivalent problem for Greene.

    No. She was asked if she's vaccinated. She replied that the question is a violation of her rights under HIPPA. There are no rules preventing anyone from asking such questions. So the title is not misleading.

    Does the OP title say "I can't tell you"?
    I'm sure it does.

    Did MTG say "I can't tell you"? I don't know of her saying that. She was quoted in the OP as saying something else.

    No, it is. But HIPAA only applies to HIPAA-covered entities. Not to, say, the press.
    How is it personal if 100 people watched me get it?

    It doesn't matter how many people know about it. It's personal medical information that is illegal for medical professionals to divulge.

    Not just 'medical professionals', it's anyone involved with said entity...IT professionals included. That's a dozen plus years working on HR IT systems, as well as working in the IT shop of a medical insurance company, which all required annual refresher training. Fun with HIPAA, PHI, PII

    In a little over a year, the US has suffered about as many deaths from covid as we experienced in the entire Civil War, which is usually cited as the most traumatic tragedy in our entire history. And we STILL have these righties who spread the most ignorant notions about covid and the supposed government overreach on masks and vaccines. They show utter contempt for the health care providers. Their orange hero was covid's best friend. How does America produce these people? If I shared the beliefs of the Trumpies on guns, abortion, taxation, the election system, gay rights, and civil rights (a solid no on all 6), I would still -- hopefully -- have to reject the movement because of what they've done to America since the virus landed here. How would you like to be a nurse, doctor, or intern who had to treat one of these idiots as a fresh covid case? Marjorie: forget HIPAA and report directly to your death panel.

    "Feed off of"? It's more like they seek out anything to feed their own delusions.
