A pandemic response bill

According to WorldNetDaily,
A "pandemic response bill" currently making its way through the Massachusetts state legislature would allow authorities to forcefully quarantine citizens in the event of a health emergency, compel health providers to vaccinate citizens, authorize forceful entry into private dwellings and destruction of citizen property and impose fines on citizens for noncompliance.
The article links to the actual bill. I will let the reader decide whether you think this bill is necessary or even Constitutional (can you spell totalitarianism?).

My question is whether there will be an outcry by the Left against this and similar bills like there was against the Patriot Act.

I'm not holding my breath.
