[img_assist|nid=26845|title=HF Ohio|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=300|height=112]Many states are considering an important question: whether to create a health care exchange to implement the Presidents health care law. Exchanges are being sold as a simple, innovative tool to inform consumers purchases. However, these exchanges are far from simple or innovative; throwing thousands of pages of regulations on states and insurance markets. As Ohio decides whether to implement this provision, its important to separate myth from reality.
Myth One: If Ohio doesnt create an exchange, the federal government will.
Reality: There is really no choice between a state and federal exchange.
An extreme, out of state, environmental group is looking to place a reckless constitutional amendment on Ohios ballot in November. The group, Yes for Ohios Energy, has obviously not learned the lesson from President Obamas failed energy gambles on bankrupt Solyndra and Beacon Energygovernment cannot pick winners and losers by throwing taxpayer dollars at an industry.
The amendment, which was certified by Attorney General Mike DeWine, would require the state to issue $13 billion in bonds to trendy green energy sources over 10 years. Yes, you read that right .BILLION! At a time when families are stretched to their limits, this group now wants Ohio taxpayers to pay $13 billion for research and development of unproven clean-energy initiatives."

Paying an average of $3.77 per gallon, Ohioans have had to adjust their daily lives just to afford to gas up their car!
Our state is literally sitting atop a solution to provide energy independence for America--shale! Shale drilling will not only provide energy independence that President Obama's policies have continued to shun, but it will bring jobs and growth to Ohio. This is definite win-win in the name of economic freedom!
In case you missed it, the Columbus Dispatch ran a great editorial this morning that highlighted the massive debt that has been run up since the inception of President Obama's stimulus plan. Three years later, the stimulus plan has proven to be yet another example of President Obama's policies being out of touch with American families.
The editorial goes on to say:
"Today, saddled with an ever-ballooning debt and a national unemployment rate that has remained above 8 percent and is much worse if one takes into account the number of people who simply have given up trying to find a job or are underemployed the absurdity of the argument for the stimulus is apparent to the majority of Americans who continue to be faced with tough choices in their own household budgets."
