March 23, 2012, marks an important and unfortunate anniversary. It will have been exactly two years since President Obama forced his unpopular health care takeover onto the American people.
As you are most likely aware, the Supreme Court will be considering the constitutionality of several elements of the President's health care takeover. This may be our best chance to overturn this offense against our health care freedoms.
Uncertainty is stalling some other parts of the Obamacare law from taking root in Missouri. Last year, for example, the legislature debated the creation of a health insurance exchange system through which consumers could shop for the most affordable health coverage. The Missouri House passed a bill, but the issue stalled in the Senate.
In this new session, two state Senate Republicans, Rob Schaaf of St. Joseph and Scott Rupp of Wentzville, have offered SB464. It forbids the governor or any state agency to take any steps to create an exchange unless it is first authorized by state statute. SB464 also calls for submitting the issue to voters in November.
