JEFFERSON CITY— Before a rally that attracted hundreds of people from across the state, Republicans in the state Legislature Wednesday asserted their willingness to resist health care legislation if it is passed by the Democratically controlled U.S. Congress. More than 30 GOP lawmakers, including Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, appeared at the rally at the Capitol Rotunda to tout bills that would leave it to Missouri voters in November to approve an amendment to the state Constitution that would prevent Missourians from being fined or punished for not participating in a national health care plan.
