Did you hear about all the South Carolina legislators, OH SO WICKED SMART as they are, and a couple of County GOP Chairs who have been whining that you CAN’t you simply CAN’t use nullification, it’s illegal, it’s unconstitutional! Frankly I think what they mean is that they are scared.
I gotta wonder what the HECK those legislators think the founders meant when they gave us the 10th Amendment? What use is it? What did they envision? Speed limit laws?????
Move over South Caroline, here comes Oklahoma!
From John Lambert at the Tenth Amendment Center:
Oklahoma State Senator Patrick Anderson has introduced a bill that would nullify the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act otherwise known as Obamacare.
SB 93 would amend the Oklahoma Code by adding the following:
The Legislature of the State of Oklahoma declares that the federal laws known as the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” (Public Law 111-148) and the “Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010″ (Public Law 111-152), signed by President Barack Obama on March 23 and 30, 2010, are not authorized by the Constitution of the United States and violate its true meaning and intent as given by the founders and ratifiers, and are hereby declared to be invalid in the State of Oklahoma, shall not be recognized by this state, are specifically rejected by this state and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this state.
If passed, the law would require the state legislature to take action to prevent implementation of the unconstitutional Affordable Care act within the boundaries of the state:
It shall be the duty of the Legislature of this state to adopt and enact any and all measures as may be necessary to prevent the enforcement of the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” and the “Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010″ within the limits of this state.
