As a follow up to my recent article on the growing movement to resist national health care, we can now include Virginia as one of the states that will be considering legislation to effectively opt-out, or nullify, any future national health care plan.
Delegate Robert G. Marshall has pre-filed House Bill 10 (HB10) for the 2010 legislative session. If passed, HB10 would, among other things, protect:
“an individual’s right and power to participate or to decline to participate in a health care system or plan. The bill prohibits any law that will infringe on an individual’s right to pay for lawful medical services. The bill further prohibits the adoption of any law that imposes a penalty, tax, or fine upon an individual who declines to enter into a contract for health care coverage or to participate in a health care system or plan.”
