The Show Me State of Missouri showed up at the polls to pass Proposition C with a 71% majority. Prop C establishes a state law that says Missouri cannot force people to pay a penalty or fine if they fail to carry health insurance coverage. This requirement of coverage is the most controversial aspect (along with the cost and current budget deficit) of ObamaCare bill passed back in March.
Also this week, a federal judge in Virginia allowed the state’s challenge to federal law move forward.
Numerous other state attorney generals have taken similar stances and have similar propositions on their November ballots.
With the rise of the Tea Party, the biggest budget deficits in the history of our country, the worst economic crisis since The Great Depression (not sure what was so great about it though….shouldn’t we have called it the Horrible Depression), corruption, scandals (Blagiovich, Rangel, Watters ACORN), Iraq withdrawal, Afghan war, and government intervention of the private sector and the Bush Tax Cuts that are about to expire, this will make for a very interesting, highly contested and heated mid-term election.
It is often said that as Missouri goes, so goes the National elections. “Show me the polls and the voice of the people, not the politicians and special interest groups!”
