President Obama's Cousin to Speak at Hands off My Health Care Rally
Dr. Milton Wolf Joins Line-Up of Public Figures Speaking Out Against the Presidents Health Care Takeover.
Americans for Prosperity Missouri (AFP-MO) today announces its March 27th Hands off my Health Care rally at 11:30 AM at the Missouri Capitol. Speakers will include Dr. Milton Wolf, practicing physician and President Obamas cousin, Lt. Governor Kinder, and members of the state legislature.
We are delighted to have so many speakers vocalizing their opposition to the Presidents health care takeover said Patrick Werner, State Director for AFP. Having Dr. Milton Wolf join us is a tremendous opportunity for Missouri to send a message loud and clear from the heartland that we dont want the federal government running our health care.
The Missouri Hands off My Health Care rally is being held in conjunction with a rally at the U.S. Capitol, organized by Americans for Prosperity. The rally at the U.S. Capitol will be simulcast at the Missouri rally. After the rally AFP-MO will lead attendees to the capitol to lobby their legislators in support of SB 464, legislation which would prevent Missouri from implementing a health care exchange without statutory authorization and submitting the legislation for voter approval.
Now, as the Supreme Court hears oral arguments on the constitutionality of Obamacare, Missourians will gather one more time to let their voices be heard, Werner explained.
Missouri was the first state in the nation to publicly reject Obamacare when the state legislature in August, 2010, overwhelmingly voted to exempt Missouri from the insurance mandate in the new health care law. While Missouri was first in its opposition, it has not been alone. Thousands of waivers have been applied for, and awarded by the Department of Health, exempting unions and corporations from the new health care law.
