States Vote on Health Care Measures

Three states voted on healthcare measures, indicating the ongoing effects of the health care reform bill.

Voters in Arizona (Prop 106), Colorado (Amendment 63) and Oklahoma (Question 756) decided whether they wanted to be able to opt-out of the federal insurance mandate. Oklahoma voted to opt out of the insurance. On the other hand, the Denver Post was reporting that with tallies still coming in, Colorado was against the amendment.

Similar measures have already passed in Missouri, Georgia, Idaho, Louisiana, and Virginia. Some believe the cumulative effect of these state decisions could "embolden legislative action to repeal or defund legislative provisions" of the federal health law, according to Robert Alt, deputy director of the Center for Legal and Judicial Studies at the Heritage Foundation.
