President Obama awoke Wednesday morning to a birthday gift he assuredly didn’t find pleasing.
In Tuesday’s Missiouri primary, 71% of voters approved “Proposition C” which attempts to exempt Missouri citizens from the part of the federal health care law requiring the purchase of health insurance by individual citizens.
Missouri is the first state with such a measure on the ballot. Oklahoma, Arizona, and Florida will vote on similar proposals in November.
Unfortunately, our Nebraska Senators did not find action on health care nullification a high enough priority during the legislative session that concluded April 14. A nullification proposal entered in January did not move out of committee.
Perhaps as momentum builds in other states for such action, our representatives won’t be so reluctant in the next session.
