ACA and Mo

September 10, 2013  |  Share

Some states have found ways to restrict the implementation of Obamacare on their residents and businesses.  

Especially Missouri, according to The Washington Post.

State voters approved a ballot initiative last year that bars state and local government officials from trying to implement the law. 

Missouri also rejected the Medicaid expansion, will not set up an insurance exchange, and plans to restrict the work of navigators.

From the Washington Post article:

“State Sen. David Sater (R) said the legislature is simply reflecting the will of the people of Missouri, who have expressed through ballot amendments and polls that they do not want the health-care law.

“‘They don’t want it, so we are just following what our citizens want,’ he said. ‘It’s federalism. It’s the federal government trying to tell us whether we can go to the bathroom or not. It’s ridiculous.'”
