MO House Seeks To Block Health Insurance Mandate

willis Today, Missouri House members, fearing the inevitability of Obamacare, approved a state constitutional amendment that would exempt the state from the federal mandate that would require citizens to purchase health insurance.

It passed by a vote of 109-46, according to KMBC News.  It now moves to the MO Senate, where it is expected to pass.

After the Senate passes the measure it will be placed on the next ballot or put up for special election by the governor, at which point the Missouri voters will have their say.

A similar measure passed the Kansas House on Moday.  The Kansas State Sovereignty Resolution, a non-binding resolution re-iterating Kansas 10th Amendment rights, passed by a vote of 109-11.
