Missouri Votes to Block Obama's Health Insurance Mandate


JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- Missouri voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected a key provision of President Barack Obama's health care law, sending a clear message of discontent to Washington and Democrats less than 100 days before the midterm elections.


About 71 percent of Missouri voters backed a ballot measure, Proposition C, that would prohibit the government from requiring people to have health insurance or from penalizing them for not having it.


The Missouri law conflicts with a federal requirement that most people have health insurance or face penalties starting in 2014.


Tuesday's vote was seen as largely symbolic because federal law generally trumps state law. But it was also seen as a sign of growing voter disillusionment with federal policies and a show of strength by conservatives and the tea party movement.


"To us, it symbolized everything," said Annette Read, a tea party participant from suburban St. Louis who quit her online retail job to lead a yearlong campaign for the Missouri ballot measure. "The entire frustration in the country ... how our government has misspent, how they haven't listened to the people, this measure in general encompassed all of that."

But they don't care what Americans think.


They worship their leftist idealogy. Salinsky said


that the end justifies the means.


so, that's where we are.


They will simply let illegals come in by the millions,


give them the vote, and let them roll.


And, for good measure, they will let certain districts who will


be important to the Dems' chances, have more than one vote per person.


They'll do anything to keep power.


It's what marxist/leftists/corrupt somebeech elitists do.
