Ohio Turns Back a Law Limiting Unions’ RightsTaken together, Tuesday’s results could breathe new life into President Obama’s hopes for his re-election a year from now. But the day was not a wholesale victory for Democrats. Even as voters in Ohio delivered a blow to Gov. John R. Kasich, a Republican, and rejected his attempt to weaken collective bargaining for public employees, they approved a symbolic measure to exempt Ohio residents from the individual mandate required in Mr. Obama’s health care law.
Someone alert David Brooks! He's always trolling the east and west-coast Blues staters about how Americans are conservative and don't like unions and government.
Regarding Obama's Affordable Care Act, Health Law Survives Test in Court of Appeals:
A federal appeals court in Washington upheld the Obama administration’s health care law on Tuesday in a decision written by a prominent conservative jurist.
he decision came as the Supreme Court is about to consider whether to take up challenges to the Affordable Care Act, a milestone legislative initiative of the administration.
Of four appellate court rulings on the health care law so far, this is the third to deal with the law on the merits, and the second that upholds it.
