Today is Missouri’s primary and on the ballot this year is Proposition C.

The L.A. Times breaks it down:

Here’s part of the language you’ll see when you head to the polls – should state law be amended to “deny the government authority to penalize citizens for refusing to purchase private insurance.”

A yes vote on Prop C means you suppose (sic, I think they mean “support”) Missouri’s right to opt-out of the mandatory requirement that everyone purchase health insurance.

A no vote on Prop C says you’re in favor of the federal government requiring everyone in all 50 states to buy health insurance or face a fine.

Don’t forget to vote today, Missourians. And remember to vote “Yes” on Prop C.
