Delegate Householder Introduces Legislation to Nullify Obamacare in West Virginia
MARTINSBURG, WV- Eric Householder (R-64) is introducing legislation in the 2014 Session of the West Virginia House of Delegates, that would eliminate the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) in West Virginia, and make it a state felony to attempt to enforce the provisions of Obamacare.
“As you know, for the first time in our history, Americans are going to be forced to purchase health insurance – or be penalized heavily by the federal government. ObamaCare would enact up to 20 new taxes, costing American taxpayers up to $800 BILLION over a ten-year period.” said Householder.
“Since there is no power of the Federal Government to regulate “intra-state commerce” then it follows that the Federal government is over reaching its power,” he continued, “Justice Roberts of the Supreme Court opened up an interesting window in the ObamaCare decision. He suggested that if states were acting as sovereign bodies, as stipulated in the Constitution, the Federal Government can’t impose Obamacare on them. Following Roberts’ logic, the states must “act sovereign” and tell the Federal government our state is not participating.”
“Health insurance is created and regulated within a specific state. It is intra-state commerce, which means the Federal government has no authority to regulate it, under the 10th Amendment.”
The 10th Amendment to the United States Constitution states:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
“It is the primary responsibility of the State to protect its citizens from Federal overreach, and interpose themselves between the Federal Government and the Citizens of West Virginia”
