Last week, a rally was held at the Pennsylvania State House in support of HB2053, the Health Care Freedom Act, introduced by State Rep Matt Baker.
“My legislation will protect our right to pay directly for medical service and prohibit any individual from being penalized for not purchasing federally sanctioned health insurance,” said Baker, Republican chairman of the House Health and Human Service Committee. “A government requirement to purchase health insurance is ineffective, costly and arguably an unconstitutional infringement upon states’ rights.”
The bill is currently in the House Insurance Committee. Nearly 20 other states are also considering similar legislation.
