Health Care Freedom: Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad

by John R. Graham

The Freedom of Choice in Health Care Act was on the ballot in three states. This is the model legislation that asserts the unconstitutionality of Obamacare’s individual mandate. Before last night, it had already passed as statute or constitutional amendment in six states.

Yesterday’s victory in Arizona (55 to 45 percent) ”upgrades” the previously passed statute to a constitutional amendment. Yesterday’s victory in Oklahoma (65 to 35 percent) overrides the incumbent governor’s previous veto.  The measure was defeated in Colorado, but by a narrower margin of 47 to 53 percent.

All in all, yesterday was a great day for health freedom.
