Michael Lotfi, executive director for the Tennessee chapter of the Tenth Amendment Center, delivered a speech at the “Nullify Obamacare” rally on the steps of the State House in Columbia, S.C.. Lotfi spoke to the crowd of approximately 450 people in the pouring rain and told them to hold their state legislators accountable.
