State Delegate Bob Marshall, of the 13th District in Prince William County, discusses HB10, the Virginia Healthcare Freedom Act, that protects Virginia residents from the Federal Health Insurance mandate. This act demonstrates the constitutional grounds that protect an individual’s right to enter into a private contract of his or her choosing.
On February 13, 2010 Virginia Delegate Bob Marshall appeared on Fox News to discuss his bill (soon to become law) – the Virginia Health Care Freedom Act, and the unconstitutionality of the Federal Government to require citizens to have health insurance. The bill protects an individual’s right and power to participate or to decline to participate in a health care system or plan. The bill prohibits any law that will infringe on an individual’s right to pay for lawful medical services. The bill further prohibits the adoption of any law that imposes a penalty, tax, or fine upon an individual who declines to enter into a contract for health care coverage or to participate in a health care system or plan.
