On Nov. 6, Alabama voters chose to nullify the federal government’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obama-Care.  Opponents of this move – including most of the local media – tried to paint a picture of “federal trumps state”, and “this is a lost cause”, but the voters held true and passed Amendment 6, nullifying health care mandates.

I checked local news sources for backlash and found a press release from Alabama Governor Robert Bentley.  It reads in part…

“The worst piece of legislation that has ever been passed in my lifetime by Congress is this quote ‘Affordable Health Care Act,'” he said. “It is not affordable and it is not health care. It is the worst — ah, I said that. I don’t have to say it twice.”

“They have made a mistake in the bill,” he said. “When they wrote the bill, they only talked about state exchanges. So if I refuse — like a lot of conservative governors are doing — to set up a state exchange, then it’s going to throw a monkey wrench in all of the stuff that’s going on. And I’m telling you folks, the states may be the last great hope — to be the firewall — against the implementation of this health care bill.”

It appears Gov. Bentley is not swayed by the SCOTUS decision at all.  He stands with his people and stands up for the 10th Amendment.

Before Dr. Bentley was elected Governor, he signed a pledge to uphold the 10th Amendment, and resist unconstitutional federal power.  This was during his campaign, now he is Governor, and he looks to be keeping his word.
