On March 10, 2013, Tenth Amendment Center communications director Mike Maharrey spoke at the Tennessee Rally Against Obamacare in Nashville.

Mike spoke about the limited nature of federal authority and a state’s duty when faced with a federal government exercising unconstitutional powers.

“I’m going to put it very simply. There is no enumerated power for the federal government to run a health care system for the entire United States. And therefore, when they do that, they are violating the highest law of the land – the Constitution. And therefore, by definition, that makes them criminals.”
