Proposition C up for vote Aug. 3

Posted online
On Aug. 3, Missourians will vote on Proposition C, legislation meant to block federal health care measures.

The proposition, dubbed the Missouri Healthcare Freedom Amendment, would amend Missouri law to deny the federal government the authority to penalize citizens for refusing to buy private health insurance and would allow citizens the right to offer or accept direct payment for lawful health care services, according to the Secretary of State's Web site.

The act is in response to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act signed into law in March by President Obama.

Secretary of State Robin Carnahan announced in a July 27 news release that a predicted 24 percent of Missouri's registered voters will turn up at the polls for the Aug. 3 primary election. The 24 percent estimate equates to more than 1 million votes, the release said.[[In-content Ad]]
