Ohio House Bill 91, The Health Care Freedom Act, is the bill to neuter Obamacare in Ohio.  But it may die in committee without your help!

Unlike the usual opposition, HB91 is supported by both the chairman and vice chairman. However the House majority leader, Representative Barbara Sears is standing in the way.  Not only is Barbara Sears the majority leader with some major pull, but she is a member of the Finance and Appropriations Committee and its subcommittee on Health and Human Services which can halt HB91. With this action, Barbara Sears is effectively helping the Obama administration force the mandate on you.

Without your help, HB91 may not even get a second hearing. The Tenth Amendment Center requests your immediate help to move HB91 towards passage.


1. Contact the Chairman on the Committee on Health and Aging. Please call and personally thank him for co-sponsoring HB91.  Let him know he has your support in bringing HB91 up for a committee hearing and YES vote.

2. Contact the other Members of the Health and Aging Committee.  Strongly, but respectfully, let each of the committee members know that you want to see nothing less than a YES vote on HB91

Just as the U.S. Supreme Court can offer their opinion and declare a law unconstitutional, the states can essentially do the same thing through a process commonly called “Nullification.” There is a reason that supreme court cases end up with the justices issuing an “opinion.”
