August 3, 2010 Primary Election
Health Care Freedom Act
Proposition C (Proposed by the Missouri State Legislature – 95th General Assembly (Second Regular Session) SS SCS HCS HB 1764)
Official Ballot Title: (What you will see in the voting booth)
Shall the Missouri Statutes be amended to:
Deny the government authority to penalize citizens for refusing to purchase private health insurance or infringe upon the right to offer or accept direct payment for lawful healthcare services?
Modify laws regarding the liquidation of certain domestic insurance companies?
It is estimated this proposal will have no immediate costs or savings to state or local governmental entities. However, because of the uncertain interaction of the proposal with implementation of the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, future costs to state governmental entities are unknown.
A “Yes” vote on Proposition C preserves your current right to keep your own health insurance plan or choose any other private plan or no plan without being penalized for that choice.
A “Yes” vote on Proposition C is also your first opportunity as a citizen to express your opinion as to the federal healthcare bill that has come to be known as “ObamaCare.”
A “Yes” vote on Proposition C (the Healthcare Freedom Act) is a message to Washington D.C. that you want the federal government to stay out of your healthcare options and choices.
A “No” vote on Proposition C would limit Missourians only to a government designed and approved plan.
A “No” vote on Prop. C sends a message to Washington D. C. that you agree with the federal government controlling your healthcare choices.

If Proposition C passes on August 3rd, it will become a Missouri state statute.
While our current healthcare system is not perfect, it is by far the best system in the world. President Obama and a majority in Congress are seeking to impose their socialist values and laws on our health system that has, up to this point, been run by state law and private enterprise.
One of the most important facts about ObamaCare is that Congress has EXEMPTED themselves from all the healthcare and insurance mandates that are imposed on the rest of the country. If the new Federal Law is so good, then why did Congress exempt themselves?
Missourians will be the first citizens in the nation to vote on this issue. The eyes of the Nation will be on the Show Me State next Tuesday, August 3rd!

Special Recognition Needs To Be Noted:
“Thank You” freshmen (2nd year) Senators Jane Cunningham (R-St. Louis County) and Jim Lembke (R-St. Louis County) as well as State Representatives Tim Jones (R-St. Louis County) and Brian Nieves (R-Franklin County) for leading the battles against overwhelming odds to make Proposition C a reality for Missouri Voters!
“Thank You” also to the many Patriot organization and Pro-Family group leaders who worked so hard to organize and mobilize the many thousands of grassroots citizens needed to get Proposition C through the Missouri Legislature!
“Thank You” to the tens of thousands of citizens who stuck in the fight to help bring us to this point. Without your calls, letters, postcards, emails, rallies, public hearings, and personal challenges to lawmakers Proposition C would only be remembered as another thwarted attempt to hold government accountable.
However, because of all these dedicated patriots, MFN gets to mention a final “Thank You”!
“Thank You” in advance to all the voters who will take the time and effort to educate and encourage your fellow citizens to go to the polls on Tuesday, August 3, 2010, and vote “YES” on Proposition C
