Juan Williams: Missouri’s Anti-ObamaCare Ballot Irrelevant–Only Old White People Voted for It

Noel Sheppard, NewsBusters, August 8, 2010

Juan Williams on Sunday said the passage of Missouri’s anti-ObamaCare ballot initiative last week is irrelevant because only older white people voted for it.

Discussing the issue on “Fox News Sunday,” the liberal FNC contributor said, “As far as the Missouri vote, you get 70 percent inside an echo chamber of older white people, no not in St. Louis not in Kansas City, saying, ‘Oh yeah, we don’t like a requirement that everybody has to have healthcare even though the hospitals in Missouri say it’s gonna drive up our costs.'”

Host Chris Wallace seemed somewhat stunned by this and asked, “What happened to respect for democracy?”

When Williams elaborated saying that he believes this will eventually be decided by the courts, Liz Cheney rightly scolded her colleague, “I think it is stunning you and the White House are unwilling to heed the votes of the people in Missouri” {snip}
