Missouri voters overwhelmingly reject ObamaCare

Missouri voters soundly rejected the ObamaCare insurance mandate. Other states are sure to follow.

From a report at the link below:

Missouri voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected a federal mandate to purchase health insurance, rebuking President Barack Obama's administration and giving Republicans their first political victory in a national campaign to overturn the controversial health care law passed by Congress in March.

This is the first domino to fall as Republicans plan an overhaul of ObamaCare when new members of the House and Senate take office in January.

It will depend on how much of a majority Republicans have in Congress whether Obama can safely veto bills that reverse key parts of ObamaCare and still get re-elected in 2012.

This 71% vote in Missouri will encourage other states to do the same.
