Missouri voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected a key provision of health care reform law. 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. Missouri is the first state to challenge aspects of the federal law in a referendum.
This is just another clear sign that people are not happy about the health care Law. Anytime there are 71% of people opposing that is a big number. The Missouri Hospital Association spent $400,000 trying to warn Missouri residents that Proposition C could raise prices at the hospitals. Even with $400,000 being spent to oppose proposition C it still passed by 71%. The could start a chain reaction of other states opposing the health care reform by referendum.
