Viva health care

Posted By on Mon, Mar 22, 2010 at 1:38 PM

Secure Arkansas, the hysterical anti-immigrant group, has found a threat even scarier -- health coverage for all Americans. So, for a day at least, immigrants can breathe easy.

It proposes an amendment (as fruitless as efforts in other states) to interpose Arkansas sovereignty against a federal health care bill. And, it says, it will sue over this outrage if Attorney General Dustin McDaniel doesn't join the various Repub a.g.'s already threatening suit today.


The grassroots organization, Secure Arkansas, resubmitted an initiated act regarding “Freedom of Choice for Health Care” to the Arkansas Attorney General for language review and approval on March 19, 2010. The amendment prevents laws or rules that compel a person or employer to participate in a health care system. “I am confident the voters of Arkansas will have the opportunity to vote on this measure in November,” said Jeannie Burlsworth, Chair of Secure Arkansas. “Once this measure is approved by the Attorney General, which we fully expect to happen soon, our volunteers will immediately begin the process of collecting the necessary signatures.”
Additionally, Secure Arkansas calls on the Arkansas Attorney General to use any legal means necessary to prevent the Federal Government from unconstitutionally requiring Arkansans to purchase health insurance.  If the Attorney General fails to take immediate action, Secure Arkansas is prepared to join with other states in filing suit to prevent this unconstitutional law from being implemented by bureaucrats in Washington D.C.
