  •  ALEC provides model legislation for FL GOP (0+ / 0-)

    Haridopolos is a FL state senator running for U.S. senator against Nelson (D)....

    Politifact --

    If Florida voters support the (Haridopolos) amendment when it appears on the ballot in November 2012 and the Health Care Freedom Act becomes part of Florida’s Constitution, what effect will it have on implementation of the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in the state?
    Would it really "allow Floridians to opt out" of it?

    Turns out, probably not. Even the American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC, which is providing model legislation that forms the basis of Haridopolos' amendment, admits all it guarantees is an avenue for challenging the federal law in court. And, even supporters of the amendment admit getting the courts to side with Florida in such a case is a long shot.
