President Obama, in case you were wondering 71% IS a mandate.

President Obama loves to remind us he was elected, was given a mandate, by the people, to yank us fully into socialism.....well, he doesn't quite say that, but it's clearly what he means. Unfortunately, President Obama is apparently not aware of what actually constitutes a mandate-which would be a LARGE majority of the population voting for something.......

Prop C was placed on the ballot as a referendum after being passed by the Missouri Legislature and authorizes Missourians to opt out of the federal healthcare plan passed by Congress earlier this year.

The issue passed easily, 667,680 to 271,102, a margin of 71.1% to 28.9%.

“Tonight is a historic night,” said Lt. Governor Peter Kinder. “Missourians have the distinction of being the first Americans to go to the ballot box and reject the reckless federal health care takeover. From Massachusetts to Virginia to Missouri, voters are rejecting the extreme liberal agenda being forced upon our nation by an out-of-control federal government.”

....you know not 52% which is barely over half.

President Obama, can you hear us now???? Missourians sent you a MANDATE.
