South Carolina State House Votes to Nullify Obamacare, 65-39



LINK

quote:

A bill that would nullify the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in South Carolina through noncompliance passed a 3rd and final reading in the state house today. The Republican controlled House approved H3101 by a 65-39 vote along partisan lines. The bill reads, in part:

(3) It is the stated policy of the South Carolina general assembly that provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 grossly exceed the powers delegated to the federal government in the Constitution.
(4) The provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 which exceed the limited powers granted to Congress pursuant to the Constitution, cannot and should not be considered the supreme law of the land.
(5,) The General Assembly of South Carolina has the absolute and sovereign authority to interpose and refuse to enforce the provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 that exceed the authority of the Congress. (emphasis added)


The bill also prohibits state cooperation with implementation of the unconstitutional federal act within the state.

(A) No agency of the State, officer or employee of this State, acting on behalf of the state, may engage in an activity that aids any agency in the enforcement of those provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 and any subsequent federal act that amends the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 that exceed the authority of the United States Constitution.
(B) The General Assembly…is empowered to take all necessary actions to ensure that the provisions of subsection (A) of this code section are adhered to by all agencies, departments and political subdivisions of the State.


Passage of H3101 into law would require the state to refuse the creation of an exchange, medicaid expansion, would empower them to strip licenses from insurance companies that accept monies from the Feds on Obamacare and much more. This covers a big portion of the steps needed to fully nullify Obamacare. No such bill – nothing even close – has been passed into law by any state in modern American history AFTER the Supreme Court gave their opinion on the constitutionality of a federal act.

It's a symbolic act more than anything else, but I'm still glad they did it, and hope the Republican Senate passes it too.

Obamacare is going to cost this country a shitload. If this symbolic act leads to people lobbying their representatives and its repeal down the road, then its money well spent.

I wonder if Obama's going to pull an Andrew Jackson on this one.

The real question is when will states start to tell the federal government that they're just not gonna play along anymore. This one is of course symbolic and won't amount to anything but there will come a time when enough states just tell the feds to stick their laws and money and supreme court decisions up their ass.

Are you a South Carolina taxpayer?

If not, your opinion is meaningless.

The last time South Carolina tried to nullify a law, Jackson threatened with force. A handful of states telling the Fed to stick its Judicial and Legislative branches will end with the Executive branch sticking them.

How? I'd rather government get rid of the problems it created rather than working on making new ones. Besides the people of South Carolina don't want ObamaCare. This is government for the people, by the people. Bout damn time the government listened to those it works for.

When is the last time we have seen this number of states acting in complete defiance of dc? Has there been any instances following reconstruction?

This is the last sentence from the quoted text.
