Missouri Throws Down Gauntlet

On Tuesday, the “Show Me’ state just said “We’ll Show You” with the passing of Proposition C. The measure was aimed at nullifying the new federal health care law, and Missouri became the first state in the nation where individuals voiced their concern regarding mandated insurance.

Although it remains to be seen how all of this will play out, given what’s going on in Arizona with its immigration laws, we’re in for an interesting ride of state vs. federal rights.  Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson were arguing these same issues over 225 years ago.  The more things change, the more they remain the same.
