Kudos are due Austria for his support of The Ohio Project’s grass root effort to place a constitutional amendment on the November ballot. He was in the act of signing their petition at a recent outing, which is posted on the Ohio Project website. His public display of local patriotism may have been a vote-getting ploy. Nonetheless, along with his legislative opposition to Obamacare, his local patriotism deserves mention.
The Ohio Project amendment is titled The Health Care Freedom Amendment .It will prohibit federal and state governments from enforcing the federal mandate making individuals purchase health care. It also prohibits government from criminalizing those who do not or who purchase health care outside of the federal insurance pools.
Thus far, the Ohio Project has gathered the required petition signatures in 46 counties. Greene County is among those counties where 5% of voters have signed the petition. What is now needed is 5% more to meet the 10% state ballot requirement. Greene County has until the end of September.
Serbert Gluckian (Xenia) and Steve Rogers (Fairborn) were taking petition signatures at their business offices. If interested, you could e-mail Gluckian at firstname.lastname@example.org or Rogers at email@example.com to see if they are still doing so.
