League of Women Voters of Missouri opposes Proposition C, the health care proposal on the Aug. 3 ballot that weakens the new federal health care law. The Cole County Circuit Court has recently ruled against a constitutional challenge to the proposal, and it will remain on the ballot, pending any appeal.
The new federal law, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, provides universal coverage with access to affordable, quality care for all Americans. League supports this law. Proposition C undermines a key component of the law by allowing Missourians to opt out of buying health insurance without having to pay a penalty. League opposes this proposal.
On August 3, vote NO on Proposition C.
