Republicans got to work immediately deciding how yesterday’s decision on the Affordable Care Act should inform their game plan going forward. A year and a half ago, House Republicans passed a bill to repeal the healthcare law. Those Republicans met again yesterday to plan out their next steps in the months ahead.
The case against the Affordable Care Act currently being heard by the Supreme Court was brought by 26 states. Ohio is one of those states, and in Ohio, disapproval of the health care law runs deep. Last fall, Ohio voters amended the state constitution to say that no federal or state law will require any person, company or health care provider to participate in a health care system. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine explains why he joined the suit against the Affordable Care Act.
Tomorrow is the big day: Super Tuesday, when ten states will hold simultaneous primary elections. There are over 400 delegates at stake on the busiest day of the of the election campaign, enough to tip the political scales in any candidate's favor. But what's interesting is that each campaign has their eyes set on the 66 delegates that come from Ohio. That's because the Buckeye State is one of the most crucial states in this, or any, Republican primary election. Coincidence or not, no Republican has ever won the presidential nomination without first winning in Ohio.
