South Carolina Looking to Pass Bill That Would Eliminate ObamaCare in the State
South Carolina is on the verge of passing a bill that would end ObamaCare in the state. But is it legal for South Carolina not to follow a federal law? Judge Napolitano discussed the case today on America’s News Headquarters.
The judge explained that South Carolina is planning to “instruct employees of the state of South Carolina not to participate in facilitating the law and to prohibit the expenditure of public funds on the law.” In layman’s terms, the judge said that the state is essentially saying that if President Obama wants the Affordable Care Act in South Carolina, the feds will have to pay for it and establish it.
Napolitano said that if enough states follow suit, “it will gut ObamaCare because the federal government does not have the resources or the wherewithal […] to go into each of the individual states.”
