St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - Missouri Governor Jay Nixon voiced disapproval over President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act, saying the law was not good for the Show Me State, St. Louis Public Radio reported Tuesday.

Speaking with reporters on Monday, Nixon, a Democrat, said the law requiring people to purchase health insurance was not something he supported.

The report on St. Louis Public Radio did not quote Nixon saying specifically why he thinks the law is bad for Missouri.

Voters in Missouri rejected the individual mandate with a 71% to 29% referendum vote last summer.

Gov. Nixon faces re-election this fall.
