More than sixty percent of Missouri voters favored Proposition E. The resulting enacted law restricts state employees from helping the federal government create a health exchange in the state, a required element of Affordable Care Act.
The language used in a ballot initiative approved by Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan has been tossed out by a Cole County judge.
Proposition-E centers on the conditions for creating a health care exchange in Missouri. It read in part if the law should, quote, “deny individuals, families and small businesses the ability to access affordable health care.” Republican Lt. Governor Peter Kinder called the language used by the Democratic Secretary of State unbelievably biased.
