Bills would opt-out Missouri from plan

JEFFERSON CITY— Before a rally that attracted hundreds of people from across the state, Republicans in the state Legislature Wednesday asserted their willingness to resist health care legislation if it is passed by the Democratically controlled U.S. Congress.

More than 30 GOP lawmakers, including Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, appeared at the rally at the Capitol Rotunda to tout bills that would leave it to Missouri voters in November to approve an amendment to the state Constitution that would prevent Missourians from being fined or punished for not participating in a national health care plan.

Matching bills that would put this amendment on the November ballot have been proposed by state Sen. Jane Cunningham, R-Chesterfield, and State Rep. Timothy Jones, R-Eureka. Mr. Jones’ bill has 75 co-sponsors, including state Rep. Dr. Rob Schaaf, R-St. Joseph, and is one of three House bills proposing similar legislation.

WE need to see ALL the states stepping up and letting the federal government know that they will not give up their constitutional rights for anyone or anything~
