Floridians will have the opportunity to vote for “health care freedom” next year.

The Florida Health Care Freedom Act, a constitutional amendment initiative, will appear on the 2012 Florida general election ballot.

The amendment, “Proposes creation of s. 28, Art. I of State Constitution to prohibit laws or rules from compelling any person or employer to purchase, obtain, or otherwise provide for health care coverage; permits health care provider to accept direct payment from person or employer for lawful health care services; exempts persons, employers, & health care providers from penalties & taxes for paying or accepting direct payment for lawful health care services; permits purchase or sale of health insurance in private health care systems; specifies what amendment does not affect or prohibit.”

Approval will require a 60 percent super-majority of Florida voters.

And now… the rest of the story. …..
