Dear Attorney General Koster,
Missourians spoke loud and clear on August 3rd when they said “YES” to Proposition C. Now, opponents of Prop C have threatened lawsuits to overturn the people’s decision.
As our Attorney General, we expect you to take every measure necessary to defend the vote of the people. We expect that your office will provide the best and highest level of defense of the people’s decision.
We understand the argument of the plaintiffs is likely to be that federal law preempts state law asserting the Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution. However, the enumerated powers given to Congress in Article I, section 8 of the US Constitution does not include individual mandates for the purchase of health insurance or any other product.
We anticipate and expect you to take this issue and the argument of enumerated power to the US Supreme Court if necessary.
