The South Carolina Nullify Obamacare bill (H3101) is moving forward, and your help can keep it on this path!
This bill was on the verge of death, but your support helped it pass in the House Judiciary Committee’s Constitutional Law Subcommittee. It will now require a vote in the full House Judiciary Committee, and while that action won’t be coming for 2-3 weeks, it’s important to start taking action in support right now.
1. Please contact the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. Politely ask him to schedule a hearing on H3101 and urge him to vote YES on the bill.
Contact information here:
Representative Greg Delleney, Jr. (803) 734-3120
2. Contact all the other Members of the Judiciary Committee. Strongly, but respectfully, let each of the committee members know that you want to see nothing less than a YES vote on H3101

South Carolina H.3101 is a bill to nullify the Affordable Care Act within the boundaries of the state. It reads, in part:
The General Assembly declares that the federal law known as the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act”, signed by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010, is not authorized by the Constitution of the United States and violates its true meaning and intent as given by the Founders and Ratifiers, and is invalid in this State, is not recognized by this State, is specifically rejected by this State, and is null and void and of no effect in this State.
The bill also provides for essential teeth – an enforcement mechanism codified in law – to prevent the enforcement of the unconstitutional federal act within the state:
It is the duty of the General Assembly to adopt and enact all measures as may be necessary to prevent the enforcement of the ‘Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’ within the limits of this State.
Oklahoma has a very similar bill that is pending in their state legislature. It has passed the House and is up for concurrence in the State Senate. Passage of these nullification acts in either state – or both – is what can start a domino effect in other states in the coming year. As more states get on board, it will be up to the good people of South Carolina to find a way to effectuate the teeth of H3101. There will likely be MANY steps to take, as we learn how massive Obamacare’s reach could be.
BACKGROUND ARTICLES AND INFORMATION ON NULLIFICATION AND “OBAMACARE.”
Just as the U.S. Supreme Court can offer their opinion and declare a law unconstitutional, the states can essentially do the same thing through a process commonly called “Nullification.” There is a reason that supreme court cases end up with the justices issuing an “opinion.”
