Pro-parasite referendum on the ballot in Arizona
PHOENIX — Arizonans will get to decide in November whether they want to block the state from imposing a universal health-care program, after all. ...
... State House Minority Leader Phil Lopes, D-Tucson, has proposed a universal health-care plan that would pool everything being spent by all parties on health care — including government, business and individuals — to set up a plan under which everyone gets the same basic coverage. Lopes has pegged the cost at close to $35 billion.
That clearly would be forbidden under the terms of the initiative, which would bar the passage of any law, by the Legislature or voters, "that restricts a person's freedom of choice of private health-care systems or private plans of any type."
Readers, how much choice does your present plan offer you? Very little? None? Or are you part of the 48 million with no insurance?
If this passes it will be very difficult to persuade any Arizona Representative or Senator to support HR 676. Anyone in the Mighty Corrente Building from Arizona?
