Here’s a message I sent to my elected state officials via congress.org.
February 28, 2010
Based on recent news reports, it seems that the federal government is once again ramping up its efforts to take over health care systems across this nation. As I’m sure you’re aware, health care is not one of the enumerated powers which the states delegated to the federal government in the Constitution.
As your constituent, and as the Pennsylvania State Chapter Coordinator for the Tenth Amendment Center (www.tenthamendmentcenter.com), I once again ask you to take action to preempt this federal power grab.
As you can see here – http://pennsylvania.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2010/02/early-pennsylvania-nullifying-the-way-to-freedom/, Pennsylvania has a long tradition of protecting Liberty by resisting unjust and unconstitutional laws.
Because this coming federal grab of the states’ health care systems is an unconstitutional assault on Pennsylvanians’ Liberty. I ask you to please continue this tradition and protect our Liberty today by supporting Pennsylvania’s Freedom of Choice in Health Care Act (HB 2053).
This bill contains provisions to
1.) Protect Pennsylvanians from being compelled to purchase health insurance.
2.) Protect the right of Pennsylvanians to individually purchase health care -AND-
3.) Protect the right of Pennsylvanians to purchase a private health insurance plan of our own choosing.
This out of control federal government must be reminded of the Constitutional limits on its power. Please support HB 2053 as one reminder.
FYI, the text of HB2053 can be found here – http://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/billinfo/billinfo.cfm?syear=2009&sind=0&body=H&type=B&BN=2053
