Georgia Lawmakers Move To Nullify The Affordable Care Act

When you value freedom, the fight against tyranny never stops. Keep pressing forward; find new tactics; don’t give in!

Monday, Georgia will become the latest State to put a torpedo in the water, aimed at the petty tyrants and spineless wimps who inhabit Washington DC.

From the Washington Times website:

Four Georgia State representatives announced today they would be introducing legislation to block Obamacare in their state.

Following the lead of South Carolina, where lawmakers are fast-tracking House Bill 3101 in 2014, the bill would, as Judge Andrew Napolitano said on Fox News this week, “gut Obamacare” in the state.

Based on the Tenth Amendment Center’s four-step plan to nullify Obamacare on a state-level, the legislation would ban state participation, assistance, or any material support for the Affordable Care Act. 

State representative Jason Spencer (R-Woodbine) along with three other representatives will be holding a press conference on Monday, Dec. 16 to discuss the proposal. 

“The bill’s main thrust is to prohibit state agencies, officers and employees of the state from implementing any provisions of the Affordable Care Act, leaving implementation entirely in the hands of the federal government, which lacks the resources or personnel to carry out the programs it mandates,” said Rep. Spencer in a press release.

Based on the long-standing legal principle, the anti-commandeering doctrine, the legislation is on strong legal grounds. In four major cases from 1842 to 2012, the Supreme Court has consistently held that the federal government cannot “commandeer” states, requiring them to enforce or expend resources to participate in federal law or regulatory programs. 

The Administration’s stated goal is 7-million people signed up for Obamacare. 7-million. For that tiny minority, we are destroying a system that has worked well for more than 300-million. Only DC Math could make that a smart proposition.
