Romney To Stump For Anti-Obamacare Amendment In Ohio

Mitt Romney will appear “at the Ohio Republican Party’s phone bank center in Terrace Park Tuesday morning to rally GOP volunteers for the final push to pass state issues 2 and 3,” which would maintain restrictions on the collective bargaining rights of public employees and allow Ohioans to opt out of the Affordable Care Act. Issue 3 says that no federal, state, or local law “shall compel, directly or indirectly, any person, employer, or health care provider to participate in a health care system.” The amendment also bans penalties on the sale or purchase of health care insurance. The measure is purely symbolic however, since federal law trumps state amendments, and is designed to draw voters. As of now, Arizona, Missouri, and Oklahoma also have similar measures on their ballots.
