Defenders of Liberty in Ohio
Continue Fight against Obamacare
Ohio - Recently named "Defenders of Liberty" in the latest American Conservative Union rankings for state legislators in Ohio, Rep. Wes Retherford and Rep. Terry Boose are continuing the fight against Obamacare in Ohio.
Leading by example, as sponsors of the Health Care Compact (HB 227), which would allow Ohio to be completely and constitutionally removed from the chains of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), Retherford & Boose, along with an All Star cast of Ohio conservatives, are proving they are dedicated to stopping Obamacare in Ohio, as well as looking for common sense solutions in addressing health care issues.
Due to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the Ohio Health Care Freedom Amendment passed in 2011, now only prohibits Ohio residents from being forced to purchase health insurance or from being forced into a health care program at the state level. Becoming a member state of the Health Care Compact will give Ohio the Constitutional freedom and liberty to make common sense and fiscally sound decisions on what is best for Ohio regarding health care - without being bound by the federal constraints and mandates of ACA.
"As our country deals with the devastating effects of the so-called Affordable Care Act, many have thrown in the towel believing it is now the law of the land," stated Tea Party Patriots State Co-Coordinator Marianne Gasiecki. "We are fortunate in Ohio to have a group of legislators willing to defend our liberty and fight for true health care freedom that we can only get through the Health Care Compact."
"All too often we hear politicians talk tough but run away at the slightest challenge. It is nice to see elected officials in Ohio such as Retherford and Boose, and those supporting the Health Care Compact, walking the walk of true Defenders of Liberty as they push on with the only way to Constitutionally remove us from the freedom sapping shackles of Obamacare," said Ralph King Tea Party Patriots State Co-coordinator.
"Because of the determination and dedication being shown by these Defenders of Liberty in Ohio we look forward to joining the other 8 states that have passed the Health Care Compact and hope that Ohio will soon be the ninth state," stated King.
