Don't tread on Missouri with your health care reform Dr. Barack HUSSEIN!
​Thanks to conservative outrage over health-care reform, people like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh might be watching next month's vote on the Missouri Health Care Freedom Act very closely.

Right-wing websites are already sending out lengthy missives on the August 3 vote, so you can protect your "health and freedom." Writing at conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart's Big Government, Missouri lawyer Josie Wales calls the vote the "most important day in America."

"The bottom line is that MHCFA represents the first battle in the war against Obamacare," Wales writes. "Organizations that support future referendums on Obamacare in Arizona, Florida, Oklahoma and other states would do well to support Missouri in its endeavors.  Support from freedom loving Americans in the rest of the Union would also be greatly appreciated."

If passed by the Missouri electorate, the MHCFA -- or Proposition C as it'll appear on the ballot -- would put the Show-Me State at odds with recent federal reforms.

As the Missourians for Health Care Freedom puts it, the bill amends state statutes 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?
All right, liberals, you've been warned.
