RICHMOND, Va. - Virginia's General Assembly is the first in the nation to approve legislation that bucks federal health care reforms by banning mandatory health insurance coverage.

Without debate, the House of Delegates voted 80-17 Wednesday to accept Senate amendments to a bill that supporters say preserves Virginia's prerogatives as a state.

I meant to add, thirty-four other state legislatures have also proposed similar measures per the article.

A ban on mandatory health insurance coverage has to do with this massive health care nightmare that's being proposed by Obama and Congress.

Something needs to be done about Social Security and Medicare, yes, but not the way it's being proposed. Killing Medicare and shifting everyone to Medicaid is like robbing Peter to pay Paul. People on Medicare pay for that coverage (about $96/month) - it comes right off the top of their Social Security payment before the balance is distributed. People on Social Security who have the so-called "gap insurance" also pay the premium for that coverage as well.

Medicaid, on the other hand, is fully funded by taxpayers.

I've been following this in the Missouri state legislature.

Quote:

Missouri House seeks to block health insurance mandate



By CHRIS BLANK, Associated Press Writer

Published: Thursday, March 4, 2010 5:14 AM CST




The Missouri House gave preliminary approval Wednesday to a constitutional amendment that seeks to block a government mandate to buy health insurance, taking aim at a key provision in federal legislation to overhaul health care.

The proposed state constitutional amendment would ban penalties or fines from being levied against individuals and employers who opt out of insurance and pay directly for their own health care.

Medical providers could not be penalized for accepting direct payments for health care.

There will an initiative on the ballot in Arizona to amend the state constitution to make it illegal in Arizona as well. It was approved last summer by the state legislator and will be on the ballot.

This healthcare bullshit is the political death of Barack Obama.

Seriously, this president has so polarized this great country that he's toast come '12.

And that is a very good thing my friends.

Nice point Ms. Mondo.

George Will made the very same point, the US government can tax to create services but it has never, ever, asserted the power that it can mandate a citizen must buy a product in what would still be a private market or go to prison.

His argument is that part of the Congressional plan (Obama seems to have no plan) would be struck down by the Supreme Court.

I agree. The best that we can hope for at this point seems to be that the current crop of pretenders will be replaced by real leaders, and that the divisions in the electorate may be healed.
No matter how the current issue of health care is settled, I can see reasons that both these things could begin to take place.

This is where the real power of the Constitution shines through. Of course, move like this will be denounced by every socialist and all those who are in favor of big centralized federal government to control everyone and everything.
