Boehner says: "Across the country, states face difficult decisions of draconian cuts to essential services or tax hikes as they continue to struggle in a difficult economy. Unfortunately, economists do not predict the situation to improve anytime soon. According to Ohios auditor, our state will face an enormous $8 billion budget gap in two years.

During these difficult times, the last thing states need are tax hikes, new layers of red tape, and unfunded mandates. But thats exactly what they will get under the Washington Democrats government takeover of health care that will raise premiums, increase taxes, cut Medicare for seniors and push new unfunded mandates onto already-cash strapped states.

Understandably, governors, state officials and legislators in both parties are saying enough is enough and taking action to put a halt to this health care bill that will hurt the people of their states.

In Ohio, State Rep. Ron Maag and other reform-minded legislators have introduced the Ohio Health Care Freedom Act to protect the individual freedoms of every Ohioan to make their own health care decisions by outlawing any mandate that individuals must have insurance. Lawmakers in 25 other states already have or will introduce similar legislation.

As these efforts indicate, the fight against the Democrats government takeover of health care is far from over. Washington Democrats continue to defy the American people by hammering out the final version of their government takeover of health care behind closed doors, but that doesnt mean we should give in.

Now is the time to stand up, raise your voice, and help make sure that the Democrats government takeover of health care never happens.
