To the best of my knowledge, nothing has really changed, except that Jennifer Gross, the original sponsor of HB248 has been removed from the Health Committee... apparently because she won't be flexible.
In other words, she continues to fight for our freedom while our other Elected Elitists would prefer to force jabs on us. Why? Because that's what their real bosses on the Ohio Chamber of Commerce are pushing them to do. (You thought they worked for you... hah!) A lot of campaign money flows from the Chamber to the candidates, or so I'm told. That's their real motivation. I assume the Chamber is controlled or incentivized by the state or federal government somehow. It's all coming from way above. And our Reps (except for about a dozen) aren't going to fight for the citizens of Ohio.
So save your "scientific data" about how bad masking is for children and about the dangers of the so-called "vaccine". They don't care. It's not going to influence anyone. Why? Because it's NOT about health, and it never was. It's about Money. Power. Control.
The House has tried to introduce a new bill... I believe the number is HB435. They are touting it as a great bill for medical freedom. But from what I hear, that's not true. If they really wanted us to have medical freedom, they'd pass HB248 (with a couple of tweaks that it apparently needs, but nothing major). No, it's a bait-and-switch effort.
So keep calling and writing your Representatives - daily if needed - and politely request that they SIGN THE DISCHARGE PETITION FOR HB248 so that we can bring it to a vote and see where our Reps stand. I'm told they are sick of getting all the phone calls, so our efforts are working. Keep hammering.
Thanks for your efforts, Patriots.
