Every Ohio Newspaper Says Vote No on Issue 3

Every major newspaper in Ohio has recommended voting “No” on Issue 3.

From its editorial “Keep the Ohio Constitution free of unnecessary clutter,” the Youngstown Vindicator stated of Issue 3:

Its wording is so broad and so subject to interpretation that it would hamstring state or federal efforts to address the health-care crisis Ohioans face.

It would effectively freeze health-care as we know it, or, in some cases, send it backward.

The Cincinnati Enquirer advocated that Ohioans “State issues: Reject health ‘fix’” as follows:

Issue 3 supporters say the language won’t have ill effects. But it’s fuzzy enough that we don’t know how it would be interpreted. That could invite a flurry of costly lawsuits and uncertainty. And as an amendment to the state constitution, it would take another amendment to repair.

As they say in the medical field: First, do no harm. With that in mind, it’s better to avoid the whole questionable issue in the first place. Passing it won’t do any good. Vote “no” on Issue 3.
