The overtly biased ballot language that Obama’s lawyer, Attorney General Chris Koster approved for the November ballot was thrown out and replaced by Cole County Circuit Judge Dan Greene last Tuesday.
In an obvious attempt to fool voters, the ballot summary written by Secretary of State Robin Carnahan and approved by liberal Democrat Koster read: “Shall Missouri law be amended to deny individuals, families and small businesses the ability to access affordable health care…”
Republican Attorney General nominee Ed Martin said the court’s decision was a win for Missouri voters.
“The bias in the ballot summary was an obvious attempt to force ObamaCare on Missourians,” Martin said. “Attorney General Koster was complicit this shameful partisan attempt to trick the voters when he approved the wording. The winners in this case are Missouri voters, who will now be able to make a decision based upon an accurate summary.”
In Missouri, the Attorney General must review and approve ballot summaries from the Secretary of State’s office. Koster rubber-stamped the Carnahan language, which Martin says proves Koster is unwilling to stand up for Missourians and push back on Obama’s liberal agenda.
“The Attorney General is the last line of defense against the federal government taking over our health care and he must not stand by and let other elected officials aid Barack Obama in the takeover. Now is the time to stand up and fight back – at every turn – against ObamaCare and its allies like Robin Carnahan and Chris Koster. This ruling was a good first step. But if Koster cannot do his job and stand up for Missourians, and he has shown that he cannot, then he needs be replaced with someone who will do the job.”
