North Dakotans oppose Obamacare. The state is part of the legal challenges to that bill which will inevitably end up in the Supreme Court. So you think it would be a good move by our state’s legislators to enshrine health care choice in the state constitution to ensure that our citizens are protected.
You’d think, anyway. Instead, the state House just voted down HCR3014 which would have done just that with 29 Republicans joining 25 Democrats in voting no.
Here’s the vote tally:

Meier, Louser, Monson, Nathe, Owens, Pollert, Rohr, Ruby, Rust, Schatz, Schmidt, Skarphol, Steiner, Streyle, Sukut, Thoreson, Vigesaa, Weiler, Wieland
