Proposition C (Missouri primary, to reject the Federal Health care
law, or at least the mandatory part of it)
667,680 total votes YES (rejecting the FHC law)
577, 615 Total registered Republicans (assuming everyone voted yes
- and not likely)
90,065 NON-republican votes who voted for Prop C (at the very least)
Fox news broke this down even farther
90,065 NON- repulicans
-3,502 registered Liberal party members
-1,883 registered Constitution party members
84,000 Democrats & non-party specific voters
Here's the way that Proposition C read on the ballot:
" ... deny the government authority to penalize citizens for refusing to purchase private health care insurance, or infringe upon the right to offer or accept direct payment for lawful health services, and modify laws regarding the liquidation of certain domestic insurance companies"
so those who say that this vote is 'irrelevant" are trying to say that people could not understand Prop C ... basically that they "just couldn't understand it" ... think they are calling you dumb?? I do.
One guy interviewed on Fox News was trying to say that because it didn't mention things like 'pre-existing conditions' or that children were covered or that companies couldn't drop you for being sick, etc. that it is 'convuluted' ...
he also equated the new FHC law with Medicare, saying that if you are against FHC then you should be against Medicare too .... but you can opt out of Medicare if you want to ... you have to apply to get Medicare, it isn't automatic (at least that's my understanding).
