    One thing i dont disagree with those folks on. We should rewild the earth. This has always been a place for abundance, they continue to war over it.

    Both democrats and republicans only care about their big donors.

    Neither party gives a rats ass about the average American.

    I totally agree that neither party cares about us , Tdale, and I'm not saying Trump was the best person the republicans could have nominated, but Hillary would have been worse than Obama. At least with Trump we " maybe " have a chance. We shall see.

    Did anyone besides T read the article? At the least it's misleading and mainly a hit piece against Trump.

    Did anyone read the bill? The isn't introducing this, it's already in practice. This bill is merely clarifying and protecting privacy.

    After reading the bill I understand why companies are interested in one's DNA /genes. (I'm not advocating) some larger companies have wellness programs to help keep their insurance costs down and by identifying certain markers in one's DNA a better health program can be developed for each individual. As far as third parties it's only general information same as Google to offer a more direct "product" can it be used nefariously? Absolutely! Was it designed that way? I doubt it.

    In short this practice isn't something new and it isn't going away. It's the same as a company giving it's employees an incentive to quit nicotine to incentive the ins companies to give them a better rate therefore reducing bottom line cost increasing profit.

    My ol lady has had her DNA tested to improve her treatment. Medicine effects people differently and their heritage has something to do with it, they have discovered how the medicines metabolize differently for people with certain DNA markers therefore tuning dosage or a different treatment all together.

    Like hell this is already in practice. GINA makes that illegal. This bill is aimed at doing away with the GINA protections

    Asking for DNA to possibly charge more for medical coverage or deny is discriminating. It's always about money and won't change.

    Just like car insurance using your credit score to decide what you will pay. Total BS.

    My mom works for a company who requires that you do not use ANY tobacco products at all, even in your own home. They occasionally test the employees and if you show positive then you are fired. It has been this way for several years.
