Missourians ban Obamacare at ballot box

Bill: HB1764

Sponsored in the Missouri Senate by Sen. Jane Cunningham and Sen. Gary Nodler, and passed into law via the August 3, 2010, ballot, the Missouri Health Care Freedom Act (Proposition C) asked whether Missouri statutes should be amended 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 health care services.” With over 70 percent approval by voters, Proposition C also mandates that “no law or rule shall compel, directly or indirectly, any person, employer, or health care provider to participate in any health care system.”

Also: “Missouri Health Care Freedom, Proposition C (August 2010)”

“Prop C passes overwhelmingly with more than 70% of vote”

“Missouri health-care vote is ‘the most important day in America”

“Missouri lawmakers will put health insurance mandate to voters”
