Missouri voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected a federal mandate to purchase health insurance. In a 72/29 vote Missourians sent a strong message to Washington saying they want none of the federal mandate that requires you purchase health insurance.
“The citizens of the Show-Me State don’t want Washington involved in their health care decisions,” said Sen. Jane Cunningham, R-Chesterfield, one of the sponsors of the legislation that put Proposition C on the August ballot. She credited a grass-roots campaign involving Tea Party and patriot groups with building support for the anti-Washington proposition.
Florida, Arizona and Oklahoma have similar legislation to Prop C that will be voted on in the mid-term elections in November.
