State Senator Scott Rupp (R-Wentzville) today announced he has made preparations for his lawsuit against Secretary of State Robin Carnahan and urged his primary opponents to join him in opposition.
“Robin Carnahan lost her race for US Senate in 2010 but that hasn’t prohibited her from actively working to implement President Obama’s agenda right here in Missouri,” Sen. Rupp said, “My lawsuit aims to block this harmful and ridiculously biased ballot language that would give power to unelected bureaucrats to implement provisions of Obama Care in Missouri.”
Sen. Rupp co-sponsored the legislation in the Missouri Senate. Carnahan’s ballot language does not accurately describe what the measure does.
“I have fought against Obama Care from the beginning and I will continue to do so until the end,” Sen. Rupp said, “I urge my opponents in the Secretary of State’s race to join me in my lawsuit immediately and take a hard stance against this extreme abuse of power by Obama’s friend Robin Carnahan.”
In 2010, Sen. Rupp passed the Health Care Freedom Act to place the first referendum on Obama Care in the nation, which 70+% of Missourians voted in favor. The Act protected Missourians from any federal health care reform that Washington mandates and ensures Missourians maintain their individual freedom to make their own choices.
Sen. Rupp also prevented Missouri Governor Jay Nixon from implementing Obama Care in Missouri via Health Insurance Exchange.
