The South Carolina Nullify Obamacare bill (H3101) is moving forward, and your help can keep it on this path! A Judiciary hearing will be held on Tuesday, April 9, 2013 at 2:30pm, or 1-1/2 hours after the House adjourns, whichever is later, in Room 516 of the Blatt Building, Columbia, South Carolina. Passage of H3101 would be the first time in modern American history that any state in the country has voted to make a federal act unconstitutional – and provided for enforcement of the state act as well – AFTER the Supreme Court has given their opinion to be otherwise.
There are many powerful forces that are working through usually-trusted sources to encourage you to oppose this bill. Don’t fall for it. This is a historic bill with massive implications nationally. South Carolina can lead, and encourage other states to do the same, and even up the ante.
Please take the following steps to support H3101 now. And, keep reading below to learn about this important nullification bill with teeth. Make your calls in the evenings and on the weekends.

South Carolina H.3101 is a bill to nullify the Affordable Care Act within the boundaries of the state. It reads, in part:
(3) It is the stated policy of the South Carolina general assembly that provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 grossly exceeds the powers delegated to the federal government in the Constitution.
(4) The provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 which exceed the limited powers granted to Congress pursuant to the Constitution, cannot and should not be considered the supreme law of the land.
The bill also provides for essential teeth to prevent the enforcement of the unconstitutional federal act within the state:
(A) No agency of the State, officer or employee of this State, acting on behalf of the state, may engage in an activity that aids any agency in the enforcement of those provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 and any subsequent federal act that amends the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 that exceed the authority of the United States Constitution.
(B) The General Assembly…is empowered to take all necessary actions to ensure that the provisions of subsection (A) of this code section are adhered to by all agencies, departments and political subdivisions of the State.
Passage of the bill into law would require the state to refuse the creation of an exchange, medicaid expansion, would empower them to strip licenses from insurance companies that accept monies from the Feds on Obamacare and much more. This covers a big portion of the steps needed to fully nullify Obamacare. No such bill – nothing even close – has been passed by any state in modern American history AFTER the Supreme Court gave their opinion on the constitutionality of a federal act. This is a historic bill with massive implications nationally. And there are many powerful forces that are working through usually-trusted sources to encourage you to oppose this bill. Don’t fall for it.
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.”
