I just heard that Ohio overturned lawmakers legislation to weaken the unions by taking away their collective barganing rights. I also heard that Ohio has also voted to protect their freedoms when it comes to health care by voting to opt out of Obamacare if they so desire, thus snubbing their noses at Obamacare.
So what are we to make of this in terms of which party is on the upswing nationally if anything since both parties seem to have a split decision? Personally, I think it's pretty simple really. People are not going to vote to have money taken from them by limiting their collective bargening power nor are they going to vote to have freedoms taken from them in terms of health care.
So what are the implications? Ohio will no doubt run larger deficits or be forced to cut jubs due to the collective bargaining being upheld. Also, deficits should rise if people are not forced to pay into Obamacare on the federal level.
All in all it's a two thumbs up for all the Dick Cheney progressives who insist that deficits just don't matter anymore.
It's party time!!!
