A health freedom advocate is urging state governors to opt out
from implementing healthcare exchanges.
Council for Health Freedom is urging states to refuse the
implementation of ObamaCare's health insurance exchanges.
States must submit in writing their refusal to implement health
exchanges by November 16, and currently three states have chosen to
opt out (Alabama, Kansas, and Missouri).
CCHF president Twila Brase says that states have every right to
opt out and should do take advantage of it.
"No law requires the states
to act, no law requires the states to set up an exchange, no law
requires the states to even respond to this HHS demand," she
asserts. "The states have the power to not implement ObamaCare and
to actually stop it in its tracks."
Brase asserts that if states implement health insurance
exchanges, it will usher in more government control and
surveillance over its citizens, along with an expensive price
"The exchange is ObamaCare -- it is the main center, it is the
controlling feature, it's the data collection tool, it's the
monitoring tool -- and to say 'no' to the exchange is to say 'no'
to ObamaCare," she tells OneNewsNow.
Brase explains that under the exchange, the choices of insurance
will be limited. She adds that through the exchange, the federal
government will be able to access tax and medical records, income
information and data of citizens to find who must purchase
insurance and who must pay a penalty.
Hospitals are expected to cut some 93,000 jobs in 2013 in
anticipation of ObamaCare. A former presidential candidate and
conservative advocate says America needs to prepare for major
changes in the medical industry.
