Prop C: What Missourians Are Saying

Election day is upon us, and all eyes from around the nation are fixed on Missouri’s Prop C. The Missouri Healthcare Freedom Act has spurred much political debate; you have seen it on TV, heard it on the radio, and read it online, but have you seen what actual Missourians are saying?

Part of United for Missouri’s goal is to spotlight grassroots issues and and give a voice to grassroots advocates … and the advocates of Prop C are speaking their minds on election day. Thanks to social networks such as Twitter and Facebook, we can  listen to what these Missourians say is a real priority for them, their families and their state.

Let’s take a look at what Prop C advocates from around the state are saying on twitter:
