Missouri House Passes Heath Care Freedom Act

More than 100 patriots answered the call and filled the gallery in the Missouri House to view the debates of the Health Care Freedom Act on Wednesday.  You efforts were not in vain.  We are one step closer to seeing this through.

from Michael Boldin at The Tenth Amendment Center:

The Missouri State House has passed House Joint Resolution 48 (HJR48). The legislation, known as the “Missouri Health Care Freedom Act” seeks to make public policy for the state that every person within the state of Missouri is and shall be free to choose or decline to choose any mode of securing health care services without penalty or threat of penalty by the federal government of the United States of America.

Here’s the official summary of the bill:

Upon voter approval, this proposed constitutional amendment prohibits any person, employer, or health care provider from being compelled to participate in any health care system. Individuals and employers may pay directly for lawful health care services without being subject to fines or penalties, and health care providers can accept payment for health care services from individuals or employers without being subject to fines or penalties. The purchase or sale of health care insurance in private health care systems cannot be prohibited by law or rule.

The Tenth Amendment to the Constitution codifies in law that the federal government is one of limited, delegated powers – and that all powers not enumerated in the Constitution are reserve “to the States, respectively, or to the People.”

The founders, during the time of the Constitution’s ratification, made clear that a vast majority of regulatory powers would be left in the states – including social services, agriculture, mining, and more. Click here to read more.

The resolution passed by a vote of 113-40, and is awaiting transmittal to the State Senate.

In an update to supporters, the resolution’s primary sponsor, State Rep. Jane Cunningham, pledged to see the effort through:

“I sincerely appreciate all those who have come out and shown their support, and all those who have shown an interest in the issue. Each of you has my word that I will fight tirelessly until our constitutional rights in Missouri are fully protected from federal encroachment.”

    I heard about this on the the Doctor Tobler’s show yesterday morning.
    This is a great step to insure that Missouri people have a chance to stand against the government control that is just waiting to suck in the politically challenged and the entitlement needy. Little do they know that this bill will protect them too.
    Hats off to all that have made this possible. Keep up the great work and I am sending this to all IL. T.E.A. and these new conservative candidates so they can see that action can work. It is better than just eating what the corrupt IL government and the DC clan offers.
