Federal Helmet Law May Soon Come?

If the Obama Administration is successful at imposing a socialized healthcare system in the United States, it seems inevitable a federalized helmet law will soon follow.

Up until now, the driving force behind getting states to impose helmet laws is the argument that head injuries are putting too much burden on state-funded health care programs.

So it seems logical that if private healthcare plans are marginalized to make room for a national healthcare plan, then expect to see a federal mandatory helmet law.
