Oklahoma Rep Ritze Seeks Nullification of ObamaCare

OKLAHOMA CITY – State Rep. Mike Ritze has filed legislation to effectively nullify the new federal health care law and allow felony charges against individuals attempting to enforce it in Oklahoma.

“The federal health care law is clearly an unconstitutional infringement on the rights of U.S. citizens,” said Ritze, a Broken Arrow Republican who is one of only two doctors serving in the Oklahoma Legislature. “As a result, the state of Oklahoma must act aggressively to stop this unconstitutional power grab.”

House Bill 1276, by Ritze, notes that the Tenth Amendment of the United States Constitution defines the total scope of federal powers “as being those which have been delegated by the people of the several states to the federal government, and all powers not delegated to the federal government in the Constitution of the United States are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people themselves.”

New Hampshire Healthcare Nullification Act Introduced to committee

EDITOR’S NOTE: With news from Idaho about a health care nullification act being introduced shortly, and this bill below, that brings the total to 8 – states that are considering rejecting not just health care mandates, but the entire national health care bill. Track them here.

This bill (full text) makes it a misdemeanor for an officer of the government to interfere with or withhold medical services from legal residents of New Hampshire.

*******

The Constitution for the United States, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding. The Constitution for the United States of America Article 1, Section 8 delegates no power to Congress regarding health care or medicine. Therefore, all laws, statutes, rules and regulations regulating the health care of the citizens of the States, not employed by the United States are not pursuant to the Constitution of the United States, and are not part of the supreme law of the land, and are not binding upon the citizens of the state.

Any act, order, law, statute, regulation or rule restricting the ability of New Hampshire citizens to contract with health care professionals or facilities for the provision of health care services or to contract with corporations providing health insurance authorized by the State of New Hampshire for health insurance is unconstitutional, void and of no force. Any attempt to enforce such a law is an affront to the Sovereignty of the States and their Citizens.
