No-To-Ocare Bill Before The PA. House

A bill that would prevent significant parts of ObamaCare from being enforced in Pennsylvania has been laid on the table of the State House.

The bill, HB 42,  was released from House Appropriations Committee on Oct. 26 fulfilling a pledge made by Appropriations Committee Chairman Bill Adolph (R-165) to Tea Party groups.

The committee vote was 21-14 with all Democrats against and all Republicans in favor.

The bill, introduced by Matthew Baker (R-68) on Jan. 19,
says A law or rule shall not compel, through penalties and fines, directly or indirectly, any individual, employer or health care provider to participate in any health care system.

It also specifically says that an individual or employer may pay directly for lawful health care services and shall not be required to pay penalties or fines for doing so; and specifically allows  health care providers to accept direct payments without penalties.
It also prohibits state law enforcement and regulatory agencies from participating "in compliance with any Federal law, regulation or policy" that would compromise the "freedom of choice in health care" of any resident of the state.
