Missourians thought it was in their best interest to ensure that only part of the people in the state were properly cared for.
“Missouri voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected a federal mandate to purchase health insurance, rebuking President Barack Obama’s administration and giving Republicans their first political victory in a national campaign to overturn the controversial health care law passed by Congress in March.”
Maybe Proposition C passed because health care costs were going to rise as a result of the new law…
“Their primary argument is that they believe the federal government should not be involved in mandating health care decisions at the local level.”
Never mind that the fact that these fools bastardized the intent of the bill, but that reason doesn’t even make any sense. They would have been better off saying that universal health care would lead to great wailing and gnashing of teeth. At least that way you get the religious people on your side.
Even though this decision does not look good initially, we can at least rest assured that level-headed fair-minded folks took part in the shaping of this legislation.
The MO senator praised a “grass-roots campaign involving Tea Party and patriot groups with building support for the anti-Washington proposition.”
