To urge Congress to continue its efforts to fully repeal
the Affordable Care Act and to recommend that future
federal health care policies restore power to the
states, fund the Medicaid program through block grants
to individual states, and permit the sale of health
insurance across state lines.

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE STATE OF
OHIO (THE SENATE CONCURRING):

WHEREAS, As fellow Ohioans we share your concern for the
health and prosperity of the citizens, families, and businesses
of our great state; and

WHEREAS, The Affordable Care Act has led to double-digit
premium increases, loss of patient access to the health care
professionals who they choose and trust, and decision-making
being taken out of their hands and put into the hands of
government; and

WHEREAS, The Affordable Care Act has led to uncertainty
among health care professionals and providers about the future
of their professions; and

WHEREAS, The Affordable Care Act places burdensome
restrictions upon business owners that prevent them from growing
their companies and creating jobs; and

WHEREAS, The Affordable Care Act has affected Ohios state
budget negatively, including through an expansion of the
Medicaid program that resulted in billions of dollars of
additional spending; and

WHEREAS, The Affordable Care Act is an unprecedented
federal overreach, stifling state-level solutions and innovation
that truly have the opportunity to empower patients and
providers in our state and increase the quality of life for all
Ohioans; and

WHEREAS, Congress recently voted to advance the cause of
the repeal of the Affordable Care Act and is to be commended for
that action; and

WHEREAS, The Tenth Amendment of the United States
Constitution enshrines the principles of federalism, a
cornerstone of our republic; now therefore be it

RESOLVED, We, the members of the 132nd Ohio General
Assembly, urge Congress to continue the work to quickly and
fully repeal the Affordable Care Act in its entirety; and be it
further

RESOLVED, We urge that any new federal health care policies
restore power to the states, and further recommend that Medicaid
be block granted to the states and that the sale of health
insurance be allowed across state lines; and be it further

RESOLVED, That the Clerk of the House of Representatives
transmit duly authenticated copies of this resolution to the
President of the United States, the Speaker and Clerk of the
United States House of Representatives, the President Pro
Tempore and Secretary of the United States Senate, and to each
member of the said Senate and House of Representatives from this
State.

Will this have any legs?
