More on why we need the January 18th Richmond Rallyon December 14th, 2009 at 10:15 pm
Can Virginia stop national health care
with the 10th Amendment?
Could we effectively stop the takeover of health care by the federal government – at least for Virginians? Could we prevent the mandate that Virginians be forced to buy government-approved health coverage?
Virginia Delegate Bob Marshall is introducing the Virginia Health Care Freedom Act in the General Assembly in January, which would guarantee that every Virginian has a right to (as well as a right not to) purchase health insurance and medical services from whatever provider she chooses. The bill would also guarantee that Virginians would not be subject to federal fines if they chose to not to follow the requirement to buy government-approved health coverage.
Currently, 21 states are proposing similar legislation. The Tenth Amendment in the Bill of Rights gives states the right (and duty) to oppose the federal government when it overreaches its power and steps outside the very limited bounds of the Constitution. The takeover of health care is the biggest overreach in American history.
Donna Holt, president of the Virginia Campaign for Liberty and head of the Virginia 10th Amendment Revolution, will be discussing this on Freedom and Prosperity Radio which is broadcast on WFIR 960 at 8:00 PM this Sunday evening. They will also discuss the proposed legislation to prevent federal gun laws from being imposed on Virginians who own Virginia-made guns and ammunition that stay within our borders.
