Pennsylvania Legislators Stand for Health Care Freedom
Date:1/26/2010

_s_Freedom_of_Choice_in_Health_Care_Act">Freedom of Choice in Health Care Act. Under the legislation, any state attempt to require an individual to purchase health insurance -- or forbid an individual from purchasing services outside of the required health care system -- would be rendered unconstitutional. The measure may also cause a federalism clash if Congress passes a law with either of these provisions.

"Massachusetts enacted its disastrous individual mandate to thunderous bipartisan applause, and now leaders in Congress are set to wreak the same havoc on the rest of America. Today, Pennsylvania is standing up to say 'no' to these assaults on patients' rights," said Christie Herrera, director of ALEC's Health and Human Services Task Force, which is coordinating the nationwide effort.

"This is a battle that has been fought before and won before. States may protect individual liberties to a greater extent than the U.S. Constitution allows, and the courts must balance the competing interests. This is the foundation of the effort in Pennsylvania and elsewhere -- that health care choice is a civil liberties issue," Herrera added.

The Freedom of Choice in Health Care Act has already been filed or prefiled in 25 states -- Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, '/>"/>
