Oklahoma Senate Bill Aims to Nullify Obamacare
Posted by John Lambert
Oklahoma State Senator Patrick Anderson has introduced a bill that would nullify the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act otherwise known as Obamacare.
SB 93 would amend the Oklahoma Code by adding the following:
The Legislature of the State of Oklahoma declares that the federal laws known as the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” (Public Law 111-148) and the “Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010″ (Public Law 111-152), signed by President Barack Obama on March 23 and 30, 2010, are not authorized by the Constitution of the United States and violate its true meaning and intent as given by the founders and ratifiers, and are hereby declared to be invalid in the State of Oklahoma, shall not be recognized by this state, are specifically rejected by this state and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this state.
If passed, the law would require the state legislature to take action to prevent implementation of the unconstitutional Affordable Care act within the boundaries of the state:
It shall be the duty of the Legislature of this state to adopt and enact any and all measures as may be necessary to prevent the enforcement of the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” and the “Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010″ within the limits of this state.
Oklahoma joins a growing list of states that are considering state nullification efforts as a means to put an end to the unconstitutional Affordable Care Act.
