Missouri votes against part of health care reform

City Watch LA comments on the vote Missourians made to reject part of Obama's health care reform. Citizens of Missouri voted to reject the federal law which mandates insurance and to reject penalties against citizens who chose to pay their own medical bills. The New York Times also featured an article about this last week.

According to City Watch LA, Missouri State Senator, James Lembke, stated , “Prop C is not about healthcare. A big victory is about freedom, liberty and state sovereignty! It's time to stand up against federal tyranny.”

What do you think? Do states have the right to reject the federal law on this issue? While the government is offering national health care, should all citizens be required to have it?
