Why Pa.'s Anti-ObamaCare Bill Is Bottled Up

HB 42, a bill that would keep much of ObamaCare from being enforced in Pennsylvania, will be held in the State House Appropriations Committee until the U.S. Supreme Court rules on ObamaCare's constitutionality according to the staff of Committee Chairman Bill Adolph (R) whose 165th District includes much of Springfield and Marple townships.

ObamaCare has been found, in whole or part, to be unconstitutional by lower courts.

The Pennsylvania bill -- which says "law or rule shall not compel, through penalties and fines, directly or indirectly, any individual, employer or health care provider to participate in any health care system" -- specifically allows health care providers to accept direct payments for services from employers or individuals without penalty, and prohibits state law enforcement and regulatory agencies from participating "in compliance with any Federal law, regulation or policy" that would compromise the "freedom of choice in health care" of any resident of the state.

Looks like it’s time for some pressure here. There reasoning for sitting on this is an insult to thinking people. I wonder who is controlling Adolph?

I can't figure out how waiting for a SCOTUS decision helps.

Recently Rep. John Lawrence had a telephone conference call that I was part of and I asked him what was going on with HR42.
He danced around the question, cut me off, changed the subject and never answered me.
What up???

PA Tea Party groups, including ours, actively participated in rolling out this bill at press conferences and rallies.

Independence Hall Tea Party Association sent two buses on two separate occasions, along with Valley Forge Patriots.

I was present when it came out of committee and reported on it on local talk radio.

Looks like we'll have to poor on the pressure to get this bill moving again. ObamaCare must be fought from every angle and on all fronts. We can't trust that the Supreme court will rule against it, and Adolf knows it.

Thanks for the information, Trib.
