MCFL initiates repeal of "Romneycare"


Find us on Facebook     


Statement by Anne Fox, President of Massachusetts Citizens for Life, about the Initiative Petition to repeal the individual mandate in the universal health care law in Massachusetts.


Today, as a group of extremely concerned citizens, from a variety of walks of life, we

will file the necessary paperwork with the Attorney General's office to give the voters of

Massachusetts the chance to repeal the most onerous portion of the state's universal health care

law. -- the individual mandate.


Further, we hope to have a conversation with the voters of Massachusetts about the real impact

of the universal healthcare law and what it portends for the future of our citizens.


We know from talking to people across the state that there is a large coalition of voters

representing a wide variety of viewpoints who oppose the individual mandate.  Today we are

launching a massive campaign to gather the signatures necessary to place this question on the

ballot.  We will also be launching a website: in the very near

future to keep the public informed about our progress and to give groups the resources they need

to help with this very important effort.


We want quality, affordable, and ethical health care for all. We are deeply concerned with

information which has been published in the past two years which shows that the state health

plan is running out of money and assumes that rationing is the solution. We in Massachusetts

already have the highest premiums and the longest waits for doctors in the country and things

are getting worse.


We at Massachusetts Citizens for Life have worked very hard over the past two years to prevent

and then defeat Obamacare. Once Obamacare is overturned, the rest of the country will be fine

but we in Massachusetts will still have to live under its prototype. Repealing the individual

mandate is a start toward better health care in Massachusetts.
