(KTVI)-On the Jaco Report, when Missourians vote on November 6th we’ll be voting of course for president, senator, governor, and congressmen. But we’ll also be voting on a proposal to stop one key part of healthcare reform. The Affordable Care Act, also referred to as Obamacare, calls for each state to set up health insurance exchanges where uninsured individuals and small businesses can buy health insurance. Proposition E on the Missouri ballot would outlaw those exchanges unless the legislature or the people vote otherwise.

The Missouri legislature is overwhelmingly conservative Republican and is opposed to Obamacare. Missouri voters already rejected the Affordable Care Act in a non-binding referendum. But why get rid of the exchanges? And would the vote mean anything at all anyway?
