Lt. Gov. (R) vows to sue over MO healthcare exchange

http://midwestdemocracy.com/articles/kinder-vows-to-sue-over-missouri-health-care-exchanges/

<snip>
Republican Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder is once again taking his opposition to the federal health care law to court, this time promising a lawsuit challenging the language that will appear on Missouri's Nov. 6 ballot.
The language -- crafted by Democratic Secretary of State Robin Carnahan -- attempts to summarize a measure passed by the Republican-dominated General Assembly that would allow voters to decide whether the governor should be allowed to set up an online marketplace for patients to shop for insurance policies.

The ballot language asks voters: "Shall Missouri law be amended to deny individuals, families and small businesses the ability to access affordable health care plans through a state-based health benefit exchange unless authorized by statute, initiative or referendum or through an exchange operated by the federal government as required by the federal health care act?"
The language was immediately greeted with outrage from Missouri Republicans. Kinder, who sued the federal government in 2010, claiming the health care reform law was unconstitutional, called Carnahan's ballot language "extremely biased."



Seems like these assholes will stop at nothing to deprive people of healthcare coverage. Keep ObamaCare--REPEAL GOPDon'tCare!!

1. The ballot language is brilliant!

"Shall Missouri law be amended to deny individuals, families and small businesses the ability to access affordable health care plans through a state-based health benefit exchange unless authorized by statute, initiative or referendum or through an exchange operated by the federal government as required by the federal health care act?"

I LOVE it!

Like saying, shall we be evil and hateful, like most republicans want us to be?

5. Definitely a festering pustule on the ass of a Missouri mule.

Squeeze him hard enough, the price of oil would come down to $10/bbl.

fellow Missourian!

7. I'm not too worried about Kinder.

His party isn't even running him unopposed-they have that little confidence and faith in the man.

Anyone know who is running on the Dem ticket?

8. Candidates are:

Susan Montee, former state auditor and current Dem. Party chair;
Sara Lampe, state Rep (?dist)
Judy Baker, a former state Rep.

Don't know much about 'em....Montee & Lampe names are familiar, though.

9. I've met Montee in the past.

I've heard of Lampe and I'll have to look up Baker.

I'll have to research the positions. We have a month until the primaries!

Baker was a state rep.

11. I don't really know Baker.

I'll really have to do my research. Glad to see the women are coming out in full force this time around!
