More bad news for Claire McCaskill, the Carnahans, Barack Obama and democrats…
The Missouri House urged Missouri’s congressional delegation to oppose Obamacare.
The Fix reported:
The state House voted Tuesday evening to urge Missouri’s congressional delegation to oppose efforts to change the federal health care system.
Rep. John Diehl, R-Town and Country, sponsored the resolution, which passed on a vote of 111-46. He said the federal proposal was “too big, it’s too expensive, it’s too dense, it’s too corrupt.”
Diehl said the health care bills currently being considered could cost the state of Missouri more than $315 million a year. Those figures vary, however, depending on who’s counting. Estimates by Missouri’s Department of Social Services peg the state’s cost at $100 million by 2017.
While many Republican lawmakers viewed approval of the resolution as a key stance against the federal health care overhaul, some Democrats dismissed it as partisan posturing.
