The Case for Health Care Freedom

by State Rep Tim Jones, via mohealthfreedom.org

It is clear that Missourians not only oppose the new federal health care law, but also the individual insurance mandate in the new law that would force individuals to purchase health insurance, or face fines and penalties.  Equally troubling for Missourians are the nearly weekly updates from the Congressional Budget Office that show that, instead of reducing the federal deficits, ObamaCare will cost an additional 800 billion dollars over the next ten years.  Because of these concerns, a Rasmussen poll released this week showed that a clear majority of Missourians still want the new federal bill repealed.  Even though this opposition was made clear in town halls and tea parties, Congress passed the bill against the objections of Americans.

In an effort to protect Missourians from this dangerous encroachment on our freedoms, a bipartisan super majority of state legislators supported the Health Care Freedom Act during the 2010 legislative session.
