The States Can Nullify Obamacare! What do we do when the Federal Government steps outside of it’s constitutional boundaries? Do we ask federal bureaucrats in black robes to enforce the limits of it’s own power? Thomas Jefferson and James Madison didn’t think so, and neither do we.

Hopefully people have taken some time to breathe and are now ready to calmly consider the best way forward. There are different paths laid out before us and many thoughts on how to proceed. Let’s try to figure this one out by looking at ObamaCare and what has been done thus far.

Barack Hussein Obama swept into office on a campaign of platitudes: “hope and change.” Immediately, he began his quest to implement a national healthcare program, and Congress eventually was jammed through the Affordable Care Act. The people grew restless and the Tea Party was born. Small, then large groups began organizing protests against higher taxes, out of control spending and a central government that long ago grew out of control.

As people organized, the Secretary of Homeland Security released a report warning against certain groups, calling them possible threats to U.S. security and advising law enforcement organizations should to beware of them. These groups included veterans, liberty groups and so called “right wing bloggers,”  among others.

The Tea Party grew and became a force prior to the 2010 midterm elections. A couple of national groups coalesced and endorsed certain candidates, and local groups worked tirelessly organizing tax day protests and vetting local candidates.

Michelle Bachmann proclaimed herself a leader of the Tea Party Coalition, and in her words, led tens of thousands to D.C. to protest the passing of ObamaCare. She and others loudly promised that they would take back control of the House of Representatives and do everything in their power to stop the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. They would bring forth repeal legislation and when that failed, they would completely starve the law by defunding it.
