Press Release: Voters Reject Government Health Care

By Gary Howard

Washington, D.C., January 20, 2010 – Last night, voters in Massachusetts continued a growing trend by sending the message to Washington that the unpopular health care legislation may be a serious liability for its supporters in Congress. 

Over the past few months, citizens nationwide have voiced their displeasure with the proposed government takeover of medicine through rallies, town hall disruptions, and recent elections. According to national polls and polls of Massachusetts voters, much of the public recognizes the need for reform but disagrees with the measures offered by the current health care bill.

Alternatives to the current bill, like the ones offered by Campaign for Liberty’s project Operation Health Freedom (, may have a better chance of giving the public the solutions they seek.  

“Campaign for Liberty is proposing that Congress try passing legislation that promotes true health freedom,” said John Tate, President of Campaign for Liberty. “The same government that has given us trillions of dollars in unfunded liabilities for Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security is not going to fix our health care system with this latest bureaucratic scheme. It’s time to vote health freedom.”

The Operation Health Freedom package includes legislation introduced by Congressman Ron Paul. The cornerstone of the package is H.R. 1495, the Comprehensive Health Care Reform Act of 2009, which provides all Americans with a tax credit for 100% of health care expenses, a tax credit for premiums for high-deductible insurance policies connected with a Health Savings Account (HSA), and allows seniors to use funds in an HSA to pay for a medigap policy.  In addition, it makes all medical expenses tax deductible.

Also included are H.R. 2629, a bill that prevents the government from requiring people to purchase health insurance, and H.R. 3217, introduced by Congressman John Shadegg, which permits the purchase of health insurance across state lines and will ultimately lower costs due to the resulting competition.
