Obama: “You will love ObamaCare”. Missouri: “Take your Obamacare and shove it!”
Or not… 71% of Missouri disagrees.

The measure, which seeks to exempt Missouri from the insurance mandate in the new health care law, includes a provision that would change how insurance companies that go out of business in Missouri liquidate their assets. …
