Nullify ObamaCare now says Tenth Amendment Center

What do you do when your president and leaders in the U.S. Senate and House lie to you?

How many times were we told ObamaCare is NOT a tax bill?

Then a funny thing happened on the way to a faulty Supreme Court ruling. ObamaCare defenders called it a tax bill.

Can you nullify a federal law based on fraud?

If a used car salesman sold you a nifty sports car in the showroom, but delivered a beat up old pickup to your door, that salesman would face more than one legal charge. Not so for politicians more interested in an all-powerful central government. They smile as they lie, confident the states will yield all power.

It doesn’t have to be that way. Contact your state representatives and recommend they nullify ObamaCare within your state’s borders.

Bear in mind nullification doesn’t overturn Obama’s signature unconstitutional law deemed constitutional as a point of politics.

According to TAC:

“Nullification begins with a decision made in your state legislature to resist a federal law deemed to be unconstitutional. It usually involves a bill, which is passed by both houses and is signed by your governor. In some cases, it might be approved by the voters of your state directly, in a referendum. It may change your state’s statutory law or it might even amend your state constitution. It is a refusal on the part of your state government to cooperate with, or enforce a particular federal law or regulation it deems to be unconstitutional.”

As the Left continues to expand ideology in conflict with individual liberty, the states represent a viable means of decreasing the power of the central government that has grown offensively beyond the limits established in the U.S. Constitution.

Meanwhile, if a Leftist tells you nullification was used on behalf of slavery, tell that Leftist she’s an idiot. Nullification was used by Northern States who didn’t want federal troops running about in search of fugitive slaves.

Our president, Senate Majority leader Harry Reid and former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi passed a bill that basically levies a tax on you if you breathe but neglect to get a health insurance policy or do get one that doesn’t comply with as yet unwritten federal regulations.

All along as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act proceeded through Congress, ultimately being passed in an underhanded manner through reconciliation, these Democrats swore up, down and sideways ObamaCare wasn’t a tax.

If that isn’t grounds for nullification of a law that also socializes U.S. healthcare to benefit a small segment of the population, I don’t know what is.

Nullify now is an option states should explore. TAC even provides a sample bill written in easy to understand language.

States should use every tool in the box to regain powers that legally belong to the states and the people. Nullification represents one idea that is worth considering.

After all, sanctuary cities practice de facto nullification of federal immigration laws. Last time I looked, the U.S. attorney general appeared to agree that was just fine.
