SC House Passes Bill Making Obamacare Enforcement A Crime

Might this empower and lead other States to do the same?

(Fox News) The bill, approved Wednesday by a vote of 65-39, declares President Obama’s signature legislation “null and void.” Whereas the law that Obama pushed and Congress passed is known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, South Carolina’s law would be known as the Freedom of Health Care Protection Act.

It would prohibit state officials and employees from “enforcing or attempting to enforce such unconstitutional laws” and “establish criminal penalties and civil liability” for those who engage in activities that aid the implementation of ObamaCare.

In South Carolina, the nullification bill would allow the state attorney general to take action against anyone causing harm by the implementation of ObamaCare. It proceeds to the state Senate for committee review, according to The Washington Times.

It will most likely pass the SC Senate, as Republicans control the body 28-18, and Gov. Nikki Haley (R) will most likely sign it. It’s not quite nullification, more along the lines of  “to restrain by temporary restraining order, temporary injunction, or permanent injunction” any person who is believed to be causing harm to any person or business with the implementation of Obamacare.” Gov. Haley has said that the people of SC do not want and cannot afford Obamacare.

An interesting question: if it passes the Senate and Haley signs it, will Obama’s highly politicized Department Of Justice sue? They sued Arizona for the SB1070, which tightened laws and rules regarding illegal aliens. But, they did not sue Colorado for marijuana legalization, despite marijuana being a Schedule I drug per the federal government.

    This is just the tip of the iceberg. I am sure that you saw that the State of Kansas received a letter from Eric Holder concerning the passage of a Kansas law stating the Feds would have no jurisdiction over firearms that did not cross state lines.

    Also the IRS is being sued by states who passed laws restricting or abolishing the establishment of health care exchanges. Such laws are allowed by the wording of the ACA, but the IRS is passing its own rules making it “illegal” and demanding the states comply with their regulations.

    States are fighting back.

  2. Let’s home they keep fighting back. And we need to make sure that we keep the state legislatures and executive offices in the states the GOP holds, and even spread.
