Gov. Bob McDonnell said that he believes that federal health care reform is unconstitutional as he signed a new state law that bars the federal government from making Virginians purchase health insurance.
McDonnell signed the bill this afternoon here his statement with emphasis added. about the Virginia Healthcare Freedom Act, Governor McDonnell noted, "We all agree that we must expand access to quality health care and reduce costs for all Virginians. Constitution. The Virginia Healthcare Freedom Act sets as the policy of the Commonwealth that no individual, with several specific exceptions, replica watches can be required to purchase health insurance coverage. The Act was passed with bipartisan support, in sharp contrast to the narrow straight line partisan vote that enacted the federal health care bill on Sunday night. Virginia's Healthcare Freedom Act received the votes of leading Democratic Senators, as well as the Democratic House Minority Leader. It was an important step to sign this bipartisan legislation today."
The Governor continued, "The states have long been leaders in identifying and implementing innovative swiss replica watches policies to expand access to, and improve the affordability of, healthcare coverage. Virginia will continue to play that important role. We will do this through promoting incentives for the purchase of long term care and individual medical savings accounts, focusing on preventative health and combating obesity, studying our medical delivery systems with the objective of reforming them to work better for our citizens, expanding free clinics and aggressively finding new ways to reduce the cost of our Medicaid system, which has already grown 1600% in the past 25 years. There are fiscally responsible ways by which we can reform healthcare and expand quality coverage that do not involve the forcing of unfunded and unprecedented mandates onto individuals and states, and the unsustainable growing of our national debt."
And where do you think this money is going to come from to insure the nation? The magic money tree? No-it is going to come out of our hardworking pockets. As a single middle class mom, I feel I am taxed enough- no more!!! Not to mention, we will pay for this for FOUR years before we can even access it. Bad idea all the way around. And do you like the service at the DMV? Imagine government health care. It hasn worked for other countries, what makes you think it will work for us? Contrary to popular belief, Obama is NO messiah.
Ok, you dont want to mandate that Va citizens purchase health insurance. Then maybe the option they need to take is that they publicly and legally sign a waiver stating that they opt NOT to have health insurance, that they pay a certain present amount of money and that a hospital can refuse to admit them or a doctor refuse to treat them unless they pay cash upfront for themselves or their children and release them from any legal liability should they refuse to admit this callow soul who refuses to get insurance and sticks everyone else with the bill. The governor is a total ignoramus.
If you own your car, you can choose not to cover it with collision or comprehensive. If you own your house, you can choose not to buy fire, theft, etc. insurance.
But if you rent, or have car loans and mortgages, the banks, landlords and the state will demand that you have coverage PUBLIC LIABILITY COVERAGE.
We don care about your personal wealth or protecting your assets, as normal insurance does.
I damned tired of the uninsured and under-insured and the lying, cheating insurance companies costing me money.
And dammit, if that means a law forcing people to be responsible then so be it.
Thank you for looking out for the Tax paying citizens of our great State. We have many burdens facing us like the issues on education and the need to fix our aging and overloaded road system. Somehow The Federal Government thinks that we have all this money to pay for these pie sky endeavors. There is no doubt that we need some changes in the Health Care system but THIS ISN IT. The Federal Government was not set up in our constitution to take control of the peoples right to make these choices. Thank You
