Wake up, Internet! That viral "news" story claiming welfare recipients in Wyoming are required by law to have RFID chips implanted in their butts is a spoof, completely false.
The item was published on the satirical website NationalReport.net, whose disclaimer page reads: "National Report is a news and political satire web publication, which may or may not use real names, often in semi-real or mostly fictitious ways. All news articles contained within National Report are fiction, and presumably fake news."
There is no microchip mandate in Obamacare
As to the longstanding Internet rumor that all U.S. citizens will be required to receive microchip implants per a little-known provision of Obamacare, that, too is false. No such provision exists, or ever existed, in the Affordable Care Act.
