Obamacare on the ballot
Missouri voters give the administration a preview of what’s to come

MISSOURI—The Show Me State voters are showing the Obama administration just what they think of health care reform: it stinks. Two out of three voters went to the polls on August 2nd and cast a ballot for Proposition C, a proposition against allowing Obamacare into Missouri.

National polls conducted before and after the passage of health care reform showed the American people were not in favor of such a federal overhaul and reworking of the health care industry from private sector to pubic sector and democrats are poised to take an electoral punishment this November for doing so. The latest Real Clear Politics average shows 51.8 of Americans oppose and/or want to appeal Obamacare with just 37 percent approving. Rasumussen has a wider margin with 58 percent against and 37 for HCR.

Some twenty state’s attorney generals have filed challenges to the federal health care reform act and if ruled based on the Interstate clause of the Constitution, key provisions are likely to be struck down. The administration is arguing its not mandating buying coverage but levying a tax—some argument.  

So now we’re going to tax our way into prosperity by taxing health care?
