(CNN) - Ohio voters will repeal a controversial law Tuesday limiting the collective-bargaining rights of public workers, CNN projects based on reported results.
The measure was a referendum on state Senate bill 5, the latest in a showdown between union groups, business leaders and lawmakers over the ways state governments negotiate with their employees.
As Ohio goes, so goes the nation
They just voted for tax increases. Time to move.
Yay! Good for you, Ohio! Power of the people!
Congratulations, Ohio! I hope this is the beginning of a backlash against Republicans and the guys behind them that are pulling the strings.
Sometimes when I'm alone, I pretend I'm a carrot.
power to the people
This won't stop Republicans from trying to screw working class America.
Way to go ohio!
Ohio, you ROCK! C'mon, everybody, gird your loins-fight for The rights guaranteed by our Constitution; let's GO!
Its about time the people stood up for their public employees and told the 99% to go shove it. I think OWS is catching on. Postal workers don't need to underfund their retirement accounts in order to balance the postal budget. How about less management and raise postal to 45 cents.
Where's the coverage on approval, by a larger margin, of the amendment to exclude Obamacare? CNN-shame on you for your Dem agenda.
This state just got expensive to live and due business in......
Power to the People!
The 99% is starting to wake up to the threat that today's GOP is to their well being.
This is what happens when a Faux News Gasbag tries to play Governor.
We Ohioans have rejected a law that would have encouraged business to settle here. Someday all of us will regret this day, I already do.

Despite what the GOP says, "...the people want...", we can tell you ourselves. Sorry, GOP, the Ohio public just issued its veto. Ohio has a democratic referendum provision that gives the populace the ability to veto. The GOP was a mistake to be put in office. Shame on us if we make the same mistake next election cycle.
I can only hope this is a start of things to come for the common folk. This could make for a great switch 2012
Well of course they'll repeal it – otherwise they'd have to compete for jobs based on their own merits, and actually have to work to keep their jobs, and actually have to deal with being paid what their labor is worth. Which is all just crazy talk. Besides, *somebody's* got to keep forcing jobs overseas and ruining companies and the towns that depend on them.
Mike D, We did it dawg.
Dont forget, the unions run the media
The US Senate/House have collective barganing. The vote their one compensation and benefits. Why should other workers not be allowed to get the best deal that they can?
Start the Layoffs now ypu will see what it is like to not work due to excess pay and benefits
Ohio Stand up
