Please assist in defeating implementation of this federal mandate in our state! The Tenth Amendment Center has provided resources to facilitate this effort and raise public awareness of our options at the state and local levels.
We are all familiar with the cliche’ definition of insanity generally attributed to Albert Einstein: doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result.
Why then do we still look to Washington D.C. – to the White House, to the Congress and to the Courts – to solve the very problems they themselves created?
Over and over again.
Now that’s insane!
The solution to ridding our state of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or “ObamaCare” lawlessness is NULLIFICATION! States simply need to stand up and say, “No! We do not accept this, and we will not comply.”
The States that created the federal government and agreed to its existence by a compact we call the Constitution are fully empowered to decide for themselves NOT to comply with any act outside the scope of federal authority as enumerated in the Constitution.
Thomas Jefferson held that the states were not “united on the principle of unlimited submission to their general government,” and that” the government created by this compact was not made the exclusive or final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to itself.” He went on to assert that when the federal government exercised undelegated powers, its acts are “unauthoritative, void, and of no force,” and “nullification of the act is the rightful remedy.”
Tenth Amendment Center communications director Mike Maharrey contends that states utilizing nullification to reject ObamaCare are simply responding to a rebellious federal government that refuses to act within its constitutional limits.
“Who is really behaving lawlessly here? A federal government that refuses to operate within its delegated powers, and rips authority away from the states and the people? Or the states, working through legitimate democratic processes, saying, “No! We don’t accept this”? I would argue it’s the federal government that’s in rebellion, and it’s time for the states to put a check on illegitimate federal power.”
The Tenth Amendment Center is fully committed to the nullification of the PPACA in our State.
“States should not fear the consequences of nullification. As per Thursday’s Supreme Court ruling, Congress is not permitted to penalize states that refuse to implement ObamaCare. In the majority decision, Chief Justice Roberts stated, “What Congress is not free to do is to penalize States that choose not to participate in that new program by taking away their existing Medicaid funding. However, he added, “Nothing in our opinion precludes Congress from offering funds under the [law] to expand the availability of health care, and requiring that states accepting such funds comply with the conditions on their use.”
Are you willing to trade this latest loss of LIBERTY for a few extra “federal dollars?” Are you ready to join the fight? Are you ready to take back control of your state?
