Poor and disabled do not deserve less in basic privacy and protections

There are plenty of privacy concerns raised with EVV and there are many known inaccuracies that could hold the user responsible.  Those who cannot afford more do not deserve less in basic privacy and protections. Just because someone happens to be lower-income, disabled, and on the waiver doesn't mean they should be the ones losing their rights to privacy by being forced to use EVV/GPS to receive care and being used as guinea pigs for the flawed software.
