Wisconsin Tea Party legislators backing bill making Obamacare implementation a felony
Nothing about this is remotely legal. Federal law trumps state law. States can't nullify national law, etc. It's just the breadth of ignorance on display that I find astounding. The insistence that despite the Supreme Court saying Obamacare is perfectly legal, that it *must* be unconstitutional.
Because freedom and liberty and Jesus and the bible.
The state officials responded to a survey from the right-wing advocacy group Campaign for Liberty to confirm they would support “legislation to nullify ObamaCare and authorize state and local law enforcement to arrest federal officials attempting to implement the unconstitutional health care scheme known as ObamaCare.” As the Journal Sentinel reports, the nine lawmakers who say they would back such a bill remain unconvinced of the health law’s constitutionality:
Rep. Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield) is one of the nine from Wisconsin who told the Campaign for Liberty he would back legislation to declare Obamacare illegal and allow police to arrest federal officials who take steps to implement it in Wisconsin. He said he believes the health care law is unconstitutional, despite the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that it passes constitutional muster.
“Just because Obama was re-elected does not mean he’s above the constitution,” Kapenga said.
