Guaranteeing high quality health care at a cost that does not break the piggy bank is one of the great challenges confronting policymakers today. Everyone wants access to the best possible health care at the best possible prices. Obamacare was supposed to help. It did not. Now, an even more harmful idea is making the rounds among many politicians, Medicare for All.
The Buckeye Institute Launches Workers Choose Campaign to Allow Public Employees to Express First Amendment Rights in Wake of Janus Ruling
Columbus, OH – Following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Janus v. AFSCME, The Buckeye Institute launched its Workers Choose campaign, which gives public employees in Ohio the tools they need to express their newly-recognized First Amendment rights.
Columbus, OH – On Thursday, The Buckeye Institute filed a new amicus brief with the United States Supreme Court in the case California Sea Urchin Commission v. Susan Combs, asking the court to put an end to judicial deference to executive agencies’ interpretation of the law.
Buckeye’s Robert Alt writes in The Columbus Dispatch, “Public-sector workers won the long-overdue right to be respected, irrespective of their individual decisions regarding union membership. And, in a nation founded upon the consent of the governed, the standard of consent adopted by the Supreme Court in Janus finally gives our hardworking public servants the voice and choice they have always deserved.”
The Buckeye Institute’s Robert Alt writes in The Hill saying, “More responsive unions funded by members who affirmatively consent and an abiding respect for First Amendment rights are principles that all Americans can applaud regardless of where they fall on the political spectrum. We are a nation founded upon the principle of the consent of the governed.”
The Buckeye Institute’s Robert Alt Discusses the Supreme Court’s Ruling in Janus Case with Rick Jackson on Sound of Ideas
The Supreme Court wrapped up its latest term with a major decision and a major announcement. The court saved a major decision for the last day of the 2017 terms---ruling in case from Illinois that public employees who refuse to join unions cannot be forced to pay "fair share" fees. It's a decision that could reverberate here in Ohio and have a major impact on organized labor.
