Call Missouri Governor Nixon 573-751-3222 to remind him to say no to health care insurance exchange.

In American Sovereign, Missouri politics on December 12, 2012 at 10:30 am

We need to call their bluff.

The Federal Government does not have the funds to set up an exchange in each state. That is why Obamacare wants the states to do it for them. Please take action today. Call Governor Nixon and tell him to toe the line. We must not relinquish or sovereign control over our own healthcare. Caring through with the Obamacare scheme gives our consent to be governed in the most personal aspects of our lives.

This is a letter I received from Campaign for Liberty.

Dear Darrel,

Last month, you answered the call to demand our governor refuse to establish a State Health Insurance Exchange, as called for in ObamaCare.

Your quick action paid off, and the governor announced our state would not comply.

But the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently extended the original deadline for submission to December 14 because some governors were still undecided on the issue.

With the amount of severe arm-twisting that goes on in politics, it is imperative we remind the governor to hold the line by continuing to say “NO!” to ObamaCare.

ObamaCare calls for a federal government-controlled online insurance “marketplace” to run mandated health insurance. That is how they can impose the “one-size-fits-all,” monopoly government-run health care system. By getting each state to implement the exchange, the federal government can implement the individual mandate to purchase insurance.

States refusing to set up their own exchange can opt for a Federal/State Partnership, and if they refuse that, HHS will set up and run a Federal Exchange in their state.

Some politicians have made claims like, “Our state has to implement this, or the federal government will impose one on us anyway.” This is a typical half-truth the liberal media lets their favorite politicians get away with.

You see, establishing a State or Federal/State Partnership Health Insurance Exchange forces the states to submit to federal regulations and they lose state sovereignty over all health care issues. The law stipulates:

“An Exchange may not establish rules that conflict with or prevent the application of regulations promulgated by the Secretary [of Health and Human Services (HHS)].”

ObamaCare provided for a limited amount of bribe money to be offered to the states to set up their exchanges, but once that money has fully dried up, the state will assume all expenses for running it.

In short, states that establish an exchange submissively relinquish sovereignty and add tens of millions of dollars a year to the state budget.

A Federal/State Partnership Exchange merely allows for the state to begin funding the exchange further down the road.

If our state refuses to go along with this scheme, the federal government can’t restrict our health care choices.

Think of it this way: if you want to get a message to someone right now, you can choose between email, social media, FedEx, UPS, or the Post Office. But with “ObamaMessage,” you would only get the Post Office. And worse yet, you would be required to pay for it whether you want it or not.

Call Governor Nixon at 573-751-3222 right away to demand he hold the line and continue to refuse to partner with the President in the takeover of your health care!

It is the governor’s responsibility under the Tenth Amendment to stand up to federal overreach and protect the citizens of our state.

Tell the governor you expect nothing less!
