Arizona to vote on freedom of choice in healthcare

October 28, 2008 by  

Healthcare choice is on Arizona's ballotThe freedom of Arizonans to make decisions about their own healthcare without consulting with the state is at stake on the November ballot.

In an editorial written for the Washington Post, George Will describes the situation as a decision that would either "arrest or accelerate the nation’s slide into statism."

Proposition 101 is a measure that aims to add language to Arizona’s constitution that prohibits any law from being passed that would interfere with residents’ right to choose, pay for or opt out of any healthcare system or plan.

According to Will, this measure would guarantee more flexibility for Arizonans and protect their civil liberties from third-party infringement.

"Proposition 101 would protect Arizonans not only against abridgements of their liberties by their state government, but also perhaps against comparable actions by the federal government," Will writes.

He explains that the proposition recognizes the valuable role of the market in being able to allocate resources better than the state and federal government.

Writing in favor of Proposition 101, Phoenix doctor Anthony K. Hedley raises concerns that state-controlled healthcare could mean that Americans have to wait longer to receive important life-saving procedures.
