Missouri becomes the sixth Republican-led state where voters have defied GOP leaders to expand Medicaid, just weeks after Oklahoma voters narrowly backed the program. No state has ever voted down such a ballot initiative in recent years, underscoring the popularity of Medicaid expansion even in parts of the country hostile to Obamacare.

The guv (R) was opposed, obviously. I mean, everyone agrees Obamacare is bad and evil even if there are lots of good things in it.

Not only was it approved, but...

The ballot measure adds Medicaid expansion into the state’s constitution, effectively barring Republican lawmakers from adding conservative elements to the program

(...like they’ve done elsewhere.)

Odd degree of support for something that’s as bad and evil as a Socialist governmental takeover of medical care.

There are now 12 states, mostly Republican-led, that haven’t yet expanded Medicaid. Virtually none have indicated they will give the program a fresh look because of the pandemic.

One wonders, as this number dwindles, who is going to be the last one to give their state’s voters the middle finger on Obamacare?
