EXCELLENT NEWS>> Ron Paul to introduce 'opt out' of mandatory health insurance legislation!!

This will be a huge piece of legislation that Ron Paul introduces that will become law -validating all our efforts in the 2007-2008 campaign as well.

It will be best to introduce this vital legislation and get co-sponsors well before the November mid-term elections and even the GOP primary season
in order for voters to determine who needs to be elected for the 2011 U.S. House of Representatives.

Obama has said he will fight challenges and for any opposition to "Go for it" . . . OK !

People from Iowa to Virginia to Idaho to New Hampshire to California will stand behind this legislation.

Ron Paul tells 1,500 in Boise the health care bill is a 'disaster'

Crowds cheered former GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul's claim that "the revolution is alive and well in Idaho," in a speech Saturday at the Morrison Center that at times took on the feel of a revival meeting.

Americans, he said, have misunderstood the definition of "rights," which are God-given and include "life, liberty and the right to keep the fruits of our labor." Those rights include neither education nor health care.

"Amen!" came a voice from the crowd.

That crowd included perennial political candidate Pro Life, a group wearing buttons that read "Charter Schools are Statist," and the Collett family that lives near Marsing. Kelly Collett brought her 10 children to see Paul.

"We bought our tickets early," said Collett. "We like Ron Paul's message. We feel like he's fighting for our freedom."

Paul's message: he wants the federal government out of medical care and wants citizens to prosper by their own work and talents - and not rely on the government.

He arrived on the Boise State campus Saturday afternoon and, after being greeted by students from conservative campus groups, told reporters that the national health care bill was a "disaster." He promised to offer legislation that would let Americans opt out of mandatory health insurance.

Affable and small-statured in a gray suit, Paul also told reporters that he was happy to escape Washington and the recent weeks of debate over health care to come to Idaho, a state where freedom, individuality are prized.

The Texas congressman received a fourth of the vote in Idaho's 2008 Republican primary, his best showing in any state. This year, his supporters are asserting themselves in the battle for control of the Idaho Republican Party.

More postive PR will be

More postive PR will be coming to Dr. Paul's name... :)



There are differences - they were accepting no changes to that

bill, including changes that would restrict viagra being paid for for sex offenders, you name it.

However, I don't think it will win, yet at least. But all GOP could sign on and make it a rallying point for November and 2012.

DeMint and Bachman have also introduced a repeal bill, but RPs might put people in a position of actually being able to vote for it.

Also, I don't think it was just a STATES opt out bill, I believe the opt out mechanism is supposed to function for individuals.

He should draft it, we should agitate for it and at least get a huge number of sponsors this Congress, to make it a 'go to' bill in the next congress.

Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul

SteveMT's picture

The Senate has already defeated the opt out measure,...

thus denying the 10th Amendment to the 37 States with pending opt out legislation.

I hope this works.

Health-law opt-out

By a vote of 58-41, the Senate on Wednesday killed a Republican amendment to HR 4872 under which states could opt out of the new health law on grounds that it usurps powers reserved to the states under the 10th Amendment. A yes vote was to kill the amendment.

Joη's picture

they can't deny a state the 10th amendment;

such a statement is null and void. Proceed with caution.

"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?

well, maybe his is different somehow.....

if so the support for it, and the cosigners should be interesting!

Bump for Dr. Paul and residents in Idaho!

May we continue to educate others in all 50 states!
In Liberty.
