This summer the Supreme Court ruled that the Obama Administration’s health care mandates to be constitutional as a tax. Today, the people of the state of Alabama told the Supreme Court to shove it!
In a Majority vote of 56%-44% (with 46% reported), the People of Alabama passed Amendment 6, which reads:
An amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to prohibit any person, employer, or health care provider from being compelled to participate in any health care system.
In the weeks leading up to the vote, there were overwhelming attempts by the media and the so-called political class to make the amendment seem irrelevant.
Many were saying that the vote was of no consequence. But, voters in Alabama stood strong with their beliefs.
Only 15 minutes after the polls closed the Amendment 6, vote was off to an early lead showing 63% in favor, and support held nearly as strong throughout the final count.
Alabama is the 11th state to have passed similar legislation. Missouri and Arizona voters were first and second in 2010. But Alabama is the first to have passed it since the Supreme Court ruling this summer.
The message to the Court? You may have your opinion on Obamacare. Good luck coming to Alabama to try to enforce it.
In the end, it’ll take some strength from the state government to support the will of the People in Alabama. But, as far as first steps go, the win on Amendment 6 is a big one.
