South Carolina HB 3101 has passed in the SC State House!
By a vote of 65-39, the South Carolina House of Representatives passed a bill Wednesday, called the South Carolina Freedom of Health Care Protection Act, that effectively prohibiting the enforcement of ObamaCare in the state.
It now goes on to the SC State Senate.
My only question is, when given the chance to do the same, why hasn’t Oklahoma done this? The reason, of course, is money. Too many State Senators are bought and paid for by the lobbyists for the insurance industry so, despite their thoughts that nullification is not viable (apparently the politicians in SC disagree with that thought), the reason they are not allowing any legislation to nullify this awful health care law is because their “employers” (the medical insurance industry) stand to gain quite a profit from ObamaCare and our Senators have to take care of their “employers” don’t they?
South Carolina House of Reps Passes ObamaCare Nullification Bill
“Nullification is a concept of constitutional law that recognizes the right of each state to nullify, or invalidate, any federal measure that exceeds the few and defined powers allowed the federal government as enumerated in the Constitution.”
“States rights advocates see nullification as a viable alternative to secession because they claim the state has authority under the 10th Amendment to invalidate unconstitutional legislation.”
