Missouri Proposition C - 2010

It was primary day in Missouri yesterday, and one of the items on the ballot was Proposition C, a proposal which gave voters the ability to vote on whether Missouri residents should be obligated to abide by the individual mandate of Obamacare. A Yes vote indicated that Missourians should not be obliged to purchase health insurance; a No vote indicated support for the individual mandate. So this was essentially the first opportunity for individual voters to express their opinion of the "Health Care Reform" bill rammed through passed in to law last spring.

So Yes votes were votes against Obamacare, Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Congress.

The Yes votes won. Overwhelmingly.

This is a wonderful map of the county-by-county results. Two counties in the state, the ones including Kansas City and St. Louis, voted no on the proposition. Every other county voted yes, as Proposition C ended up passing by a margin of 71-29 %.
