AP: Florida rejects health-care mandate ban

November 6, 2012

According to AP, Florida voters have rejected a proposal that would have banned government mandates for heath insurance, such as the Affordable Care Act.

The amendment required 60 percent voter approval, but failed to get 50 percent.

The amendment was a symbolic measure by the Republican controlled legislature, since the U.S. Supreme Court has upheld the law. Alabama voters have a similar measure on their ballots.
