OLC: Rejects Supreme Court Ruling

Columbus, Ohio - The Ohio Liberty Coalition rejected the decision announced today by the US Supreme Court upholding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act which was passed by Congress and signed by President Obama in 2010. Ohio Liberty Coalition President Tom Zawistowski said, “The Supreme Court has ruled that the law is legal, that does not mean that the law is right or what the American people want. Our course is now crystal clear. Our only recourse is through the election process, which is why our movement is committed to winning the presidential race and senate races in Ohio. Governor Romney has made it clear that, if elected, he would repeal the bill. That is what we want and therefore it is up to us to convince our fellow Ohioans to vote for conservative candidates in November. Our future as a nation is in our own hands and I am confident that the citizens of Ohio, and of our nation, will make their opinions clear at the ballot box in November."

The Ohio Liberty Coalition is a coalition of Ohio Liberty Groups whose purpose is to unite conservative grassroots organizations for greater effectiveness in the state and nation, and to provide resources for member organizations to strengthen their groups. The OLC currently has over 75 liberty-minded groups across Ohio who are members of its coalition.
