Overwhelming Rejection of Obamacare in Missouri

The people continue to show good sense--let's hope Washington gets the message.

Proposition C is passing by a landslide in Missouri. With 3303 out of 3354 precincts reporting, the tally is 662,910 (71.5%) Yes and 264,217 (28.5%) NO.

The "Fair Ballot Language" from the Missouri Secretary of State decribes a "yes" vote on Proposition C as doing this: "A “yes” vote will amend Missouri law to deny the government authority to penalize citizens for refusing to purchase private health insurance or infringe upon the right to offer or accept direct payment for lawful healthcare services. The amendment will also modify laws regarding the liquidation of certain domestic insurance companies."

The full text of Proposition C is here.
