Kansas Likely To Enact Health Care 'Freedom' Law

People do not want government-controlled death care, but desire health care freedom. Kudos to Governor Brownback for supporting this and standing up for the liberty of Kansas citizens!

Kansas is close to joining other states in enacting a law designed to block a key part of last year's federal overhaul of the health care system.

A proposed "Health Care Freedom" law was on Gov. Sam Brownback's desk Tuesday, part of a larger package of changes in various regulations for health care providers. He's expected to act on it by Friday.

Brownback is a strong supporter of language in the bill saying no Kansas resident can be forced to buy health insurance.

That goes against a federal mandate that most Americans buy insurance, starting in 2014.

Brownback spokeswoman Sherriene Jones-Sontag said the governor must review other provisions in the bill before deciding whether to sign it.
