St Louis Tea Party Coalition Makes Nixon a Better Offer– Updated

The St Louis Tea Party Coalition has a much better offer for Governor than mandated health care…but first, here’s what happened:

Yesterday, it was rumored that Missouri Governor Jay Nixon was, pen in hand, about to sign an Executive Order overturning Propisition C, a measure passed last August which would protect Missourians for nationalized health care. 

Note top of article by CBS affiliate KMOX:

Partisan blood pressure was on the rise in Jefferson City over a proposal to accept a federal grant to set up healthcare exchanges that would help coordinate President Obama’s healthcare reform in Missouri.

Senators Lembke, Cunningham and Schaaf stormed the Governor’s secret meeting with the Missouri Health Insurance Plan Board and stopped Nixon from accepting a $21 million federal bribe to implement Obamacare (via health insurance exchanges) by Executive Order. (H/T Caroline Mueller)

Note bottom of article by CBS affiliate KMOX:

Last year,  71 percent of Missouri voters approved Proposition C, which sought to protect Missourians from the federal mandate to participate in Obama’s healthcare reform.

And smack-dab in the middle of the article from CBS affiliate KMOX:

Governor Nixon’s office is declining to comment on the flap, referring all questions to the Missouri Department of Insurance.

No comment??? Why in the world not. . .unless, of course it is true.

It’s worth noting that the KMOX article was stacked too, I love how this story seems to minimize the fact that 71.1% of the State’s pupulation voted against Obamacare, yet seeming demonized the brave Senators who stood up for that 71.1%, and the integrity of their vote.

That being said, St Louis Tea Party Coalition Co-Founder Bill Hennessy has a counter-offer for the Governor.  “I’ll lease him a system I call “the Internet” for $22 million a year. You just type “health insurance” in the big bar at the top, and you get this list of options.  You can find pretty good, high deductible insurance for as little $323/mo for a family of 4, including a childbearing age woman.” Hennessy said in a statement late last night.  He continues “This Internet of which I speak is accessible for free in any public library.”

Whether the Governor is willing to take Hennessy up on his offer is doubtful, but should he, the organization would have that much more revenue to continue to promote logical rationale as seen by Hennessy, and 3 brave Senators.

I agree, much better offer for Missourians.

**UPDATE**

From KCTV5:

A state board had been expected to vote Thursday on the expenditure of more than $13 million to prepare for a state-run “health insurance exchange,” which would allow people to shop for insurance through an online marketplace. If states don’t adopt their own such plans, the federal government is to start running the exchange by 2014.

And from Business Week:

After several Republican senators raised concerns, Missouri insurance officials backed off plans Thursday to start spending millions of federal dollars on the computer technology needed to implement part of the new federal health care law backed by President Barack Obama.

    Laws are meaningless if a Democrat disagrees with them.

    But if Nixon doesn’t take that $21 million, there won’t be more “public” jobs created in the new HC Exchange for MO. I’m sure that’s his goal. State and Federal government have corporatized themselves where they create their public agencies (or sub corporations) and hire new public employees.

    I guess they figure the free market is dead, so they are creating their own “shadow” market via the government.

    I thought Missouri passed an ammendment to it’s constitution that exempted it from federal healthcare plans?

    Yes Kathleen, we did. However, when did voters count? Unless on Election Day, and even then, it’s who ever can fraud the system the best, then politicians can ignore them for 2 to 4 to 6 years. After all anything done in the first year won’t be remembered, right? Vote non incumbent until only citizen lawmakers remain…
