    An Ohio Health Care Amendment appeared on the November 8, 2011 ballot in the state of Ohio as an initiated constitutional amendment, where it was approved.
    The measure called for exempting residents of Ohio from national health care mandates which would stop any state law from forcing persons, employers or health care providers from participating in a health care system. The measure was sponsored by The Ohio Project. The measure was in response to President Barack Obama's signing of a national health care mandate law in 2010.

    I don't see how it makes a difference. Those that wanted the law are happy and those that didn't weren't going to vote for Obama anyway.

    well 66 percent of those who voted in 2011 voted against it. So Obama never stood a chance in Ohio? or what?

    Ohio has been a shithole for a very long time. Losing Ohio is like getting over a case of the clap.

    How many of you have actually driven through Ohio? What a crap basket! Some of the worst maintained highways on the planet. Most third world countries have better highways than Ohio.

    Look at it this way... One professional athlete leaves Ohio and it is a MAJOR blow to the place. What does THAT tell ya about Ohio?

    He may have it was 65-69% against the mandate as of yesterday that's all I saw so a lot of people aren't so happy.
